Saturday's Critters # 533

Welcome to Saturday's Critters! Hello and Happy Saturday!

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!


I noticed I have a few blogs I follow on my side bar that do not update with the current post, they stay at the bottom of the list even though the blog has a new post. Does anyone know how to keep the list updated with current post? 


Feb 4th, a pretty sunny and blue sky day for our walk.We take this fire road walk to see how the Bald Eagle nest is coming along. We have been seeing the Bald Eagles nesting for years now at our local Prettyboy Reservoir. 






Below is a fuzzy image of the Bald Eagle on the nest and her mate was sitting in a nearby tree.




One of the Bald Eagles took off and flew around the lake only to land in another tree.





Far off across the lake I saw a big group of Common Mergansers. They are common visitors to our lake in the winter months.





A juvenile Bald Eagle flew over the lake. 





We were still able to walk on the lake shore, usually when the lake is full we have to walk on the trail.




At first I though I saw a deer on the trail in front of us as we were walking back to the car. 
It turned out to be a man walking his two German Pointer dogs. 




We love visiting with our grandsons and the grand-dogs, Nibbles and Winnie are cute critters.  



Here is another critter puzzle we have finished recently.  I love the Orca whales, I had a brief glimpse of one while on an Alaska cruise.




Thank you for sharing your critters and post!

Time seems to fly by no matter what we do, these images are from late January. On Jan 19th we had about 6 inches of snow. The birds were enjoying the peanuts and suet nuggets I put out for them.


1. The Blue Jays are always first to arrive after I put out some food, they are piggies.  I think they sit in trees above our yard and wait for me to come outside.







2. Our snow covered deck with a White-throated Sparrow sitting on the railing waiting for some food. The winterberries are a pop of color, ready for some birds to eat.



3. The Mockingbird has been enjoying some suet nuggets, when it is not eating it is chasing away other birds from the food. 



4. Looking out my window, I noticed 2 bunnies in our side yard. I hope they are finding food the ground was covered with snow. One bunny is almost hidden on the far left. The window blinds made this photo look strange. 





5. Jan 26th Prettyboy reservoir has a layer of ice on top and little section of open water where the Canada Geese were paddling around. 





6. I am happy to see we have had enough rain/snow to start filling up the reservoir after last year's drought.





7. After our walk to the lake, we are home to hear the male Cardinal banging on our front window. The female is sitting back further in the rhododendron watching her mate attack his reflection in the window.  





8. Hubby and I enjoy working on 1000 piece puzzles on the bad weather days.  I loved this Toucan puzzle.
