Saturday's Critters #154


Saturday's Critters #154


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.

If you are in the area Space Coast Birding festival  Jan 25th - 30th. The festival sounds like a great time. Check out the link for all the activities planned. I have enjoyed visiting the area including Cape Canaveral National Seashore, Merritt Island NWR, Cocoa Beach and Titusville. 



More from Merritt Island, the birding at the wildlife refuge is great. I am sure we will be visiting here as often as we can. These images are straight out the camera only resized for my blog.  I was pleased with my zoomed images of the Bald Eagle, it was perched on an electric pole with a fish.







Reddish Egret


Reddish Egret, maybe Caspian terns and possibly Dowitchers?


Green Heron, can you find a spiders web?



A blurry look at a Manatee nose and part of it's face.








Starting next Saturday I am using a new Mr. Linky tool. The previous linky tool changed their price. I hope all goes well with this new linky, Saturday's Critters will run from Saturday to Saturday.  Sorry, your thumbnail will not show unless I decide to upgrade my membership. If you have problems linking please enter your URL in the comment section and I will try to fix the problem.  Thanks for participating with my Saturday's Critters.


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!

Wow, those are stunning, and so many species.Down here, the birds are nesting, and we have a " Mrs Thrush" so called as she visits this time every year, puts as much food into her beak as she can cram, and flies off to the babies. A delight to see her several times a day, I need to try and have a photo for next week's post.

Ela said...

Love the eagle. But the egret looks like he's walking on water. Lol. What a great place.

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) The Bald Eagle is definitely the star of your post, but all your shots are fabulous, and as I think you know, the Green Heron is a favourite of mine, and it's nice to see all the birds in one shot in the 4th image. Thank you for hosting.:)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

A fabulous photo of the manatee! It's so hard to get a photo of one coming out of the water like that. Of course the birds are wonderful too! It's such a thrill to see an eagle. Enjoy your weekend and the beautiful weather we're having! Hugs, Diane

roughterrain crane said...

Your photos are excellent.

ann said...

Your photos are exceptional. The eagle is really good. The green heron is very colorful; I am wondering now if what terrorized my gold fish last spring was really a green because it wasn't as colorful as the one you photographed. Wonderful photos, Eileen.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Florida looks like a birders paradise, Eileen. The close ups you got of the eagle are amazing! What a large beak he has! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hello Eileen, the Bald Eagle photos are magnificent. The Caspian Terns remind me of Tanzania! Can you believe it, I forgot to link up to you yesterday. At first, I was too early and then became involved in my day and forgot. Thanks for hosting this meme. I hope to get my head around the new Link up next week. Greetings. Jo
