Saturday's Critters #15

Saturday's Critters #15


Hello blogging friends,  time for Saturday's Critter party.  Link up your post and have some fun seeing all the different critters..   It is fun to visit with some new bloggers and some old blogging friends.  Either way, I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys all the critters.

One of my winter birds...the White-throated Sparrow..


This farm is around the corner from me and I often see these goats, some are miniature maybe Pygmy Goats and look so cute. On this day, I had to stop and take  some shots from the road..I see a Robin on the far left near the fence.


A long-hair dude, he is kind of cute..sometimes there are 15 of these little goats walking free in the neighborhood and farm.. I have seen them close to the road sometimes with their peacock friends..










Thank you for linking up to the critter party. I appreciate the visits, comments and the support of my blogging friends..

To see more beautiful birds and cute critters

Also please visit:  I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host: Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin. Also, sharing with Camera Critters. Thanks to Misty for hosting.

 Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.

  5. I was always crazy about guys with long hair---must have been a sign of the times back then. The long haired goat is awesome--I wonder if they use the fur (hair?) for spinning....

    not sure i have ever seen such a cool little goat. he needs some sunglasses. he is so hip!! ha. ha!! sort of reminds me of a little doggie, what are they called yorkies or something?!! ... all furry like that. what a sweetie. most goats around here in VA are used for mowning lawns. they work wonderings.

  36. Nice sparrow Eileen. Love the Long-haired Dude too - we could all have used some of that coating this winter. Thanks for hosting again. Have a great weekend. Phil

  37. You get some of the most amazing shots. I can't seem to catch my year around hummingbirds(2) with my camera. I can't believe I have these two hummingbirds all winter long. First year this has happened.

  38. HI Eileen Yes you are right, really cute goats. Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting

  39. I assume that being in a rural area there isn't so much danger for animals close to the road, but that is the first thing that came to my mind when you said you saw the goats and peacocks by the road. I hope they are safe because they are most certainly adorable as is your White-throated Sparrow and even the little Robin in the corner. It is so good to start seeing the birds around again. Lovely post ...

  41. Forgot to comment on how cute your goat photos were when I was here earlier. I see now that my Turkey photo showed up, but not my name Montanagirl under it. I must not know how to do it properly.

  42. Those goats are too cute! Thanks for sharing your photos.

  43. I saw some White-throated Sparrows when I was in San Francisco - it's great to be able to recognise some of the birds you post.

  44. Dearest Eileen;
    The White-throated Sparrow looks SO lovely with its white feather around the throat♡♡♡ Handsome "long-hair dude"; Silly me thought I need to check what kind of goat he is from the word (just only a moment), haha.
    May your sweet nature be kept forever!!!

    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
