Saturday's Critters #261

Welcome to Saturday's Critters !


If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

On November 30th I happened to be looking out my window and saw 4-5 Eastern Bluebirds in my yard. They were checking out all my bird houses. I am not sure if they just wanted a home for the night so they could stay warm. I did not see them after that day. I hope they come back. 





House hunting, this was a fixer upper and needs a new paint job. 


The male is peeping inside the house, while the female peeks around the corner.

Happy Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday,

On the morning of Dec 3rd I was able to take some photos of the crescent moon with Venus right below.  



Crescent moon with Venus. 


Zoomed in to see a closer look at Venus.


Sorry I cropped out my curtains on the photo below of a couple of Pine Siskins and Goldfinches. The Pine Siskins have a thin yellow stripe on their sides.


A closer look at the crescent moon, it is pretty.


Some times my birds all disappear during the day, I think a hawk is hanging nearby or maybe it is the Screech Owl. One day I saw an Eagle flying over the yard, I wonder if the eagle would make the small birds nervous. 





I am thankful for sunny days and clear skies. 
A thankful heart is a happy heart. 
am thankful for all your visits and comments. 


Thank you Michelle for hosting Thankful Thursday
Thank you to Yogi the host of   Skywatch Friday


Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Thanks so much for visiting and for your nice comments on my previous post. Have a happy day!

Our World , My World


Hello,  

Happy Birthday to my dear Hubby!  


Mondays are rolling around pretty quickly, at least for me. After the Thanksgiving holiday I decided to put up my little pre-lit Christmas tree. I enjoy looking at the lights and the ornaments I collected over the years.  I have a cute collection of Santa Ornaments, bird ornaments and some reindeer and various other festive ornaments. Since it is just hubby and I, the only decorating I do is this little tree. 

Ornaments for the birdwatcher. I love the owls. 



A closer look at the birdwatching ornaments, they are cute. 





A few of my Santa ornaments.


Reindeer, dog and butterfly ornaments.


The tree with just the lights. Now, I have the whole month to enjoy the tree.  It will come down right after New Year's Day. 



My Christmas ball Cardinal.  He looks like he might explode.  




Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.


Thanks to Angie the new host of  Mosaic Monday

Thanks to LadyFi and the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!




I hope to see you there. Thanks to the hosts today. Enjoy your day and new week.


As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

The Chickadee looked funny stretching it's neck to reach the bird seed.
