Saturday's Critters #94

Saturday's Critters #94

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post..  I will be away from the computer during this post but I will catch up and visit and comment on your post as soon as possible. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

The last few years I have been seeing the fall warblers stop by my yard to eat some of our wild berries growing in our yard. This year we saw some warblers maybe not as many as previous years. Some of these warblers were in my yard and some seen in the local woods near my house.

If you click on these image you will see a larger image which looks better.


 On our devil's stick berries the Chestnut-sided Warbler.


Above the male American Redstart, another quick mover.


The female American Redstart in our Weeping Cherry tree. It is hard to get a clear shot of these fast moving birds.

Above is a breeder here at the watershed next to our house the Hooded Warbler. It was constantly on the move and hard to get these images.


The Hooded Warbler would not stay still for a second. It was hard just getting the shot above.


The Black-throated Green Warbler in our Weeping Cherry tree.


Above is a fall Tennessee Warbler, the line across the eyes is helpful for this id.

Above on the left is the Black-throated Blue Warbler and on the right the Cape May Warbler.

On one day, we were seeing two-three Cape May Warblers on the Devil's Walking Stick berries.  The brighter yellow colored warbler above is the male.

In the mosaic above is the female Black-throated Blue Warbler. It has an arc under the eyes and a small white patch on its side.

I hope you enjoyed my warbler post. Thank you for stopping by for a visit and thanks for the nice comments. I also appreciate everyone joining in with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!

Again I want to mention I will catch up with everyone's post as soon as possible..

  23. Good morning Eileen, and birds united! Such a blissful life they have. I'll be back to post mine (you'll think for a moment that I was in Florida) but I wasn't. I had a very important shout out to post first this morning. See you later, enjoy your weekend.

  31. Hi Eileen, I have only seen one Redstart male and it was truly spectacular. Yes, the Redstarts are hard to photograph as they are super secretive and very quick. Have a good weekend and I hope your weather is not terrible due to various storms.

    ReplyDelete

    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your warblers are so cute! How blessed you are to have so many in your garden, the Devil's Walking Stick is quite a draw. Do you have problems with suckers and seedlings coming up everywhere? The Redstart is so remarkably colored, I haven't seen them.

    Your tree ‘Devil's Walking Stick’ looks like a tree, that I have on the country – ‘Aralia Elata’ – but I have never seen any berries on it.

  51. Hi Y'all,

    Love your warbler post. Seeing lots of them here but they move so fast and usually are partially hidden in leaves. I can't get a halfway decent photo.

  69. I love seeing all of these adorable little warblers! :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. What really sets your lovely photos apart from so many others is the ethereal surroundings you capture - the glistening water, the soft canopy of leaves, the blurry bundle of sticks....just like everything looks in heaven, I imagine!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Eileen, I am so sorry to have missed your meme last week. Each post is a nature-lesson filled with beauty. You did amazingly well catching those Warblers! And, so many different types! Wow! The Black-throated Green Warbler is especially sharp, and magnificent to see. You seem to have the growth around your home that attracts a very wide variety of birds. Thank you so much for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Great shots as always, Eileen!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Wow, great warblers. I'm so envious that all these come to your yard! I have to go far afield to find them, and that's only if I'm lucky. I'll definitely add more berry bushes to my yard in the next few years, maybe that will help bring me some warblers.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I loved your warblers! We had to go to Alaska to see a redstart! Should have come to you, would have been closer ;>))).... hope you're off on a wonderful trip.

  78. Hello Eileen. I finally caught up with you too on Friday afternoon. Goodness, you have so many warblers to choose from but the Black-throated Green is rather special. Most of our warblers have flown back to Africa now - just left with Chiffchaffs.

    Have a great weekend. I'll catch up with you tomorrow after more ringing.
