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..

Hi Eileen I don't think I've seen the Warblers close-up, they are rather pretty little birds aren't they?
Hope you are having a great weekend away.

Fantastic pictures here Eileen. That black-throated green warbler is brilliant.

Hope you have a lovely few days away ... I'm assuming you are away!

Take Care.

All the best Jan

Hi Eileen, I'm late but eventually linked up. I love your birds - the Blue throated Warbler looks a little like our White-eye (posted today) thanks for hosting. Jo

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I love the little birds in the trees - their bright spots of color - or how they can hide among the leaves and berries.

Karen S. said...

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.

Debbie said...

a great variety of birds, they are all so beautiful!!!!

Sheila deLaneuville said...

Good Morning Eileen, what a gorgeous grouping of birds! There would be several in your list that would be a new Life Bird for me! Enjoy you day.

Crafty Green Poet said...

The hooded warbler is very handsome! Lovely birds all of them though

Bob Bushell said...

I love your birds, high up in a tree.

wildlifewatcher said...

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.

Ela said...

Wow !! I love the birds and I love these fantastic shots !!
Happy weekend :)

Marie C said...

Your warblers and restart are awesome! Beautiful photos! I can remember seeing our first restart and how excited we were to find a new bird.

Christine said...

You have a wonderful variety of bird and wildlife in your own backyard, Eileen! So many lovely birds!
Happy weekend!

Hannah said...

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.

Yamini MacLean said...

I love warblers! These sweet birds visit me in my back yard mid winter ..

ulla laiho said...

I love your birds!

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.

Margaret Adamson said...

These are great shots, Eileen. I would have missed many- I can't focus that fast! Thanks for hosting!

Hawkeye BrownDog said...

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.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

takes a great lens or tremendous patience (which I don't have) to capture those little critters

Nancy Chan said...

Eileen, you always have great captures of your beautiful critters.

KL said...

Beautiful pictures. You are lucky to have so many unique birds visiting your garden.

Helma said...

Hello Eileen,
wonderful to see these beautiful colored birds. I'm still surprised every time the amount of beautiful colors that have vogles in your hometown. Wonderful to see.
Have a beautiful new week.

The Yum List said...

Are those berries edible by humans?

A Quiet Corner said...

Eileen you have such a wonderful array of photos of Warblers here...I honestly do not think I have even seen one!!!...:)JP

Betsy Adams said...

Beautiful set of pictures... You impress me knowing your birds like you do. I have never spent enough time trying to see and learn about Warblers... But---they are beautiful birds... Thanks for sharing.

Hugs,
Betsy

Kalantikan said...

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

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

J said...

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!

Black Jack's Carol said...

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!

ladyfi said...

So many gorgeous critters!

Irene said...

Great shots as always, Eileen!

Jodi said...

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.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

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.

Seraphina´s Phantasie said...

Phil Slade said...

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.
