Saturday's Critters #146


Saturday's Critters #146

Happy October!!

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 was able to see a few different warblers passing thru my yard. They do love these berries. Sorry about the photo quality, these images were all taken thru my dining room window. Below is a Tennessee Warbler with a Chestnut-sided Warbler.


The Cape May Warbler's hung around for a week or more.


I believe below is a Nashville Warbler.


Out trumpet vine bloomed for a while and the hummers love these blooms.


As of Sept 21st I was seeing these warblers below, on the top photo together is the Tennessee Warbler on the left and the Cape May Warbler on the right. Bottom row is the Black-throated Blue Warbler and a Cardinal. The birds are just loving these berries, yum!




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!

Mosura said...

So many warblers. Wonderful little birds but can get a bit tricky to ID sometimes. (for me at least)

I love the hummer at the trumpet flower!

Christine said...

Hello Eileen! Those berries certainly attract the birds and they are so plentiful! Lovely to see the hummingbird enjoy the trumpet vine!
Thanks for hosting and enjoy your weekend!

Phil Slade said...

Good morning Eileen. Thanks for lettting me join in to your warbler fest today. Those garden blooms are very attractive and must hold lots of juicy bugs for the birds. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Bob Bushell said...

Wonderful images Eileen.

jandi said...

Those berries do look very appetizing! The birds must love them! Hope you are having a beautiful day!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Wonderful sightings from the comfort of home! I'd love to have a yard which attracted hummingbirds and other migrating songbirds, but there is little space because a lawn must be maintained in the entire area 20 feet from our 140 foot lakefront shoreline. That's 280 square feet of manicured lawn, plus a 20 foot utility easement on one side of the home which we own but must obtain approval for any changes. Of course, the lake brings in lots of waterbirds!

Lea said...

Love those cute little Warblers!
I thought all our Hummingbirds had gone south, then yesterday there were two at our feeders.
Have a wonderful week-end!

Jenn Jilks said...

It is poignant seeing 'the last one' of these critters for the season! Our hummers are gone. The warblers, too.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

That's an adorable little warbler Eileen. I'm back to sharing with some critters I saw while visiting out west.

Mildred said...

How fun to see a variety of warblers. Hope you have a nice day and thanks so much for hosting!

Prunella Pepperpot said...

Eileen I love your warblers and I would so love to see a little hummingbird in my garden. You are very lucky.

Hi Eileen,
I'm back from a midweek break.
You let beautiful carmine berries see your blog.

Eating natural instead of processed is a very good thing!
What is the berry Eileen?

I love trumpet vine and wish we had some on our farm, but they grow like crazy!

Hi Y'all

Must congratulate you on the fantastic warbler photos. We've been blessed with visits from hooded yellow ramped and various other warblers, but there move too quickly to catch a photo

Hello Eileen!:) Lovely to see such a great variety of birds feeding from your garden plants. The berries are a huge attraction, and also the Trumpet flowers. Wonderful shot of the Hummer! We don't get Hummingbirds here, so I only see insects feeding from my Trumpet flowers.:( Thank you for hosting Eileen, and have a great Weekend.:)

Linda said...

How delightful to see your lovely photos gracing my computer screen, Eileen! Beautiful!

Suzanne Prickett said...

Hi Eileen. Your Warblers are so sweet. I believe I've seen some in our Fort Worth area before. I enjoy your Saturday critter share. Hopefully, I can participate more in the future. I have a garden blog, where I would post some critters, but, somehow through Google Plus, the photos were lost from many of my posts, and I have not been able to retrieve them. So, I am starting anew. Have a wonderful weekend!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your birds love those berry bushes! So neat that you can see them from your window. Cyndis are way out in back and it's already getting kinda chilly to sit quietly out there. No need to apologize for those pictures, I wouldn't have seen anything wrong...still don't actually. No critters for me again this week....thanks for sharing yours!

GreenComotion said...

Hello Eileen-
Pretty Warblers and Hummer.
Have a Happy Weekend!
Peace :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Fabulous images Eileen!!
I think even tho they're difficult to see, that is what makes this post all the more proper....that is TRULY nature.

Thanks so much for the condolences of our losing Winston!! Much appreciated.

Mary Cromer said...

Oh it is that time once again when we can begin to see the many Warblers...you got some pretty ones and the Hummingbirds are still here, but their numbers are dwindling quickly. Happy Weekend Eileen. Hugs~

Powell River Books said...

Wish our hummers were still coming around. Almost all the birds have gone for the season. I sure miss their songs and flying antics. - Margy

Interesting. I had three hummingbird feeders out and only saw one or two hummingbirds. Guess I need more flowers.

Warblers are such pretty little birds. Looks like they have found bird heaven too! Do you think they'll turn a deeper shade of blue? heehee! Sweet hugs, Diane

Janneke said...

So very beautiful. I did not realize that these warbles were such a tiny birds and also the Cardinal was much bigger in my imagination.
