Saturday's Critters #178

Saturday's Critters #178


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 may be away from my computer and internet for a bit. I will visit your blogs and comment as soon as possible.  

I am taking you back to the Circle B for some more bird sightings. The Wilson's Snipe could usually be found in a couple places off the trails. 


Two Wilson's Snipes in the morning light.


I could always get my fill of Black Bellied Whistling Ducks at the Circle B.


The Black Crowned Night Heron could be found in various spots along the trail too.


Looking up at the sky, it was filled with Tree Swallows. 


A Limpkin was sharing the trail with us. 


My You tube video of the Limpkin, their sounds are very loud and weird.






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!

  26. The snipes are fascinating! I thought I saw one on a low perch near another bird while in Texas, but thought I must be mistaken, because I wasn't aware that they ever left the ground! :-) Love that black crowned night heron, and the limpkin is really awesome!
