Saturday's Critters #151


Saturday's Critters #151

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.

My critter post is all about the birds, below are the Palm Warblers.


Common Moorhen and or Purple Gallinule , this photo looks much better if you click for the larger version.



Not the best shot, the birds were further away. But, I thought it was cool to see the Wood Stork, Snowy Egret and White Ibis all together in the neighborhood.


Two Snowy Egrets, Anhinga and a Great Egret


The neighborhood Snowy Egrets, there maybe a juvenile white Little Blue Heron mixed in.




I hope you enjoyed my birds this week. 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 image of the Palm Warblers! The the gallinule and Cattle Egret shots are beautifully composed, and I envy that you can see Wood Storks as they have nearly abandoned us here in south Florida.

Phil Slade said...

I think you're having a wonderful time in the sun Eileen. I really like those Palm Warblers just sitting out in full view like that. Shouldn't they be hiding away in the trees and out of that sunshine?

Thanks for letting me join in today, and enjoy your Sunday.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Eileen
Florida has such an amazing array of birds. I have been enjoying seeing them on your blog and facebook. The tree in the second photo is so beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend!

Lovely shots, Eileen.

The Great Blue Heron reminds of a decrepit detective in a raincoat, for example Columbo.

Love the snowy Egrets..Great pictures..Thanks for sharing..No critters to share this week..

Suzanne Prickett said...

The moss swaying from the trees over the water is so mesmerizing. It looks as though the air is very fresh there, and the white birds look so content. My son and I spotted a raccoon outside last night. This is the first time in the 23 years I have lived here that I've seen one. I couldn't get good photos of it though! Have a great week Eileen!
