Saturday's Critters #145


Saturday's Critters #145

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.


This time of the year I have a few warblers stop by to eat the berries growing wild in my yard. We purposely leave some Devil's Walking Stick and Pokeberry bushes growing for their berries, the birds love them.

Below is the Tennessee Warbler.


The Cape May Warblers were seen for a few days in a row, not sure if it was the same bird. The males have a dark yellow color.









The warblers are always a treat to see, especially when they land in my yard.

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!

strange, I hardly saw the little warbler because of the strange look of the flower. But then I found it :)

Mosura said...

Beautiful birds. I looked up the calls so I could hear them. I must say the Tennessee Warbler sounds much nicer. The Cape May Warbler is a little ear piercing ( At least the one I listened to was)

Brian King said...

Very pretty birds!

manali - himachal pradesh said...

In that first shot, I was so taken by the beauty of the berries, I almost couldn't see the warbler - love that take. What is the plant? Hope your weekend is looking dryer and calmer than it is here... YAM xx

Mildred said...

Such sweet pictures of the warbler. Have a lovely Sat.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Warblers are such pretty birds and it's hard for me to tell them apart. We have quite a few here in FL but right now we have more purple finches than anything else in our feeders. Hugs!

Tomoko said...

Lot's of blue berries growing in your yard. Sweet idea to leave them for birds!
especially,I like to see the third photo. Have a good weekend! Thank you for hosting,Eileen.

Love your warblers, Eileen.

Believe it or not, the pokeberry bushes on the W&O.D. trail have less than 20% of their berries left. There were so many, but the birdies have been going to town!

Sandra said...

I spy with my new eye that tiny cute warbler hiding in the plants.

Lynne said...

Great pictures and good for the birds!
One of the many thing I enjoy about the wooded area behind our house.
Wild plants, different critters of all sizes . . .
Plus a large area to place the many, many oak leaves that fall around our home.
It's the season . . . the leaves and acorns are falling fast . . .

Debbie said...

Good morning, and happy Saturday to you Eileen! You are so sweet to your birds, maybe that's one reason why they give you such lovely poses for your photos! Enjoy your weekend!

TexWisGirl said...

you get to see a great variety of warblers there.

Al said...

Pretty birds - your Tennessee Warbler was well-camouflaged!

Suzanne Prickett said...

Hi Eileen. Your little Warbler is pretty, and looks familiar, I may have seen a few around here in early Spring. After a long, hot summer, I am relocating a couple of feeders and freshening up in hopes of attracting some Chickadees. Your photos of the little bird are good-looks like plenty of berries. Have a great weekend!

What a lovely and sweet little birds, Eileen!
Wishing you and yours a happy Sunday! :)

:)

Happy weekend to ya

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Cyndi and Jeff (daughter) leave wild blackberries and some of their raspberry canes on purpose for the birds ... I see birds there , but find them hard to photograph... Your warblers came out of hiding for you! I hope your pleasant Fall weather lasts a long time ... Thank you for hosting, I am glad to be back linking!

Frank Boxell said...

Eileen. What a joy to have these Warblers enjoying the fruits in your garden.

David Gascoigne said...

Those Cape May Warblers sure look odd in that plumage at this time of the year.

RedPat said...

I hear warblers in the trees but can rarely find them. Great pics, Eileen!

Anni said...

As always, I'm here not only to view your wonderful post, Eileen, but also to send along my thanks for sharing with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!

That warbler is a cute little bird!

Are the berries edible by humans?

Dee said...

Beautiful photos! The warblers are so cute!

After 32 years of living in Florida, I saw my first caracara this week.

The warblers are hard to see in those pokeberry bushes.

pattisjarrett said...

The Tennessee Warbler blends in with the back ground. Pretty!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) Sorry I'm so late, but yesterday was hectic. It's lovely to see your yellow Warblers. Pokeberry plants are plentiful on the farm, and the birds have been gorging themselves on the berries. It's nice of you to keep these weeds in your garden for the critters.:)

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Eileen; Oh, I've never seen warblers before p:-) Great photographs and these Stick and Pokeberry bushes growing for their berries is the wonderful idea♡♡♡ Our some attempts never worked(^^;)
Thank you very much for hosting.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
