Saturday's Critters #132

Saturday's Critters #132

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.

I am sharing these images of some birds and critter were seen on May 26th. Looking forward to see your critters, birds, animals and pets of any kind.


A Carolina Chickadee seen during my walk on the fire road near my house.


One of the Great Blue Herons from the neighborhood's heronry.



I believe this is an Acadian Flycatcher, a common bird seen in the nearby woods.


A Northern Cardinal another common bird in our neighborhood.


My Chipmunk critter was fussing loudly for some reason.  I hope you enjoyed my birds and chipper.


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!

Sweet little birds especially the flycatcher! Lovely heron and chipmunk! Have a beautiful day!

Tony McGurk said...

The Flycatcher is so cute as is the Chipmunk. Cardinals always impress me with their incredible scarlet colour.

Dearest Eileen; Lovely and sweet birdies and Chipmunk; what was the reason of the fuss, I wonder p:-) I wish I could catch the blue heron again someday. Thank you SO much that I learned the word 'heronry' today♪

Heisann, always nice to observe the birds on your blog, and I saw a Norwegian squirrel while walking our dog yesterday. The squirrel was so quick than I had no chance to have a photo. The squirrels living here don´t have the sideline! Have a nice weekend ;:OD)

The chip pies are so cute! Love the Heron in the tree, Eileen!

Alexa T said...

I stopped, as always, to have my share of nature while looking at your beautiful photos...looking at the beautiful birds, so special and never seen in here, like for instance; the red cardinal or great blue herons...
Many thanks and i'll try to find a way to come back with a new post, as soon as possible! All the best and a great weekend to you!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, My favorite today is that Chipmunk. I miss seeing them. I have never seen any here in Florida. They must not do well in our humid heat (or the foods are wrong for them?). Have a wonderful weekend!

Naquillity said...

so many wonderful critters... i also read your shenandoah national park post but can't find it on your blog. so, i'll comment here... the park looks to be a beautiful place to explore. i really enjoyed the image of the american redstart. it's adorable. all that color... hope all is well. have a great night~

Missy George said...

Beautiful Heron..Always love the chippers! Hope you are having a good weekend..

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Love all your birdie pics, Eileen.

After careful observation of our backyard chippie and the various birds, I have to conclude they are VERY wary of him (or her).

Happyone said...

All great critter pictures. Love the heron in the tree.
We have so many squirrels and chipmunks we've taken to trapping them and letting them go up near HT.

Sandi said...

Sweet simplicity of life in these photos! It's like finding a gem.

Merlesworld said...

We don't have chipmunks they sure are cute, wish we did have them
