Saturday's Critters #131

Saturday's Critters #131

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

Wishing a Happy Father's  Day to all the father's in blog world.  I am sharing my male Red-bellied Woodpecker. He is a treat to see any time he visits my yard.


 The Red-bellied Woodpecker put on a show for me.






The woodpeckers are always vocal around my yard. If this one sees me outside he will start chatting away. I think he is asking for some peanuts.


As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

Dearest Eileen; I LOVED your sweet male Red-bellied Woodpecker; How CUTE♬♬♬ I especially love the third photo you kindly posted larger one from the collage♡♡♡
The color coordination of his body is amazing, I realized that the eyes also have the tinge of orange♪

My husband is still trying to do for my late parents house what he can do to look better. Repairing net window, painting weather door etc.; haha, just wishing his efforts will be rewarded. I did my first painting job p;-)
I WISH I can visitmany of my kind friends this weekend.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Beautiful bird. I love the scarlet. We have just three woodpeckers in UK, Greater Spotted, Green and Lesser Spotted. The latter is shy and difficult to spot.

lovely photos of a handsome little woodpecker

Anne (cornucopia) said...

I'll say your woodpecker put on a show for you. Mine fly in, take a few bites, then fly back out again. (Although I have managed to snap a few photos of them when they do.) Have you seen your male feeding his female mate? (I was fascinated the first time I saw the male doing that in my yard.)

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Those are terrific shots, Eileen.

When the West Virginia Red-bellieds see me, they let out a squawk and fly off into the woods.

Great shots of the Red-Bellied Woodpecker! Tho I am behind in reading blogs, I have to say that just about two hours ago, I saw a Red-bellied on my seed feeder! First time in quite a while... It seemed smallish... I think it was a juvenile too! Will try to blog about my birding today... Thanks for sharing!
