Saturday's Critters #27

Saturday's Critters #27

Hello and happy weekend!  It's that time to share your critters. I hope to see you join in with the Saturday Critter Party.

Wow, I just read that this is my 800th post.. I can not believe I have made 800 post..

I am sharing some more birds and critters I saw while vacationing in Belize..


 Some of these birds were included in a previous post but a smaller photo in a mosaic. I thought it would be nice to see the birds in a larger photo..  Above is the Brown Jay one of my Belize lifers.



The Social Flycatchers seem to be a common bird seen all around Belize. Many were seen at our Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge.



 Another lifer is the Yellow-Green Vireo..was seen while eating breakfast every morning in a nearby tree. I was not kidding before when I said it was difficult to eat while my eyes were following birds around and seeing new life birds.


The iguanas were seen in several places. Some of these critters can be very large in size.


Another Belize lifer the Yellow-faced Grassquit..also seen at our rainforest lodge. I hope you enjoyed my critter post. Now, I want to see your critters..   I wish everyone a happy weekend.





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

    Brown Jay and Belize Lifers are wonderful with larger pictures. My favorite is the third picture and smiled to read that you were too busy looking at birds; I CAN guess♡♡♡ And wish to see the large sized iguanas p;)

  12. Good morning Eileen. Thank you for the chance to share in your day today and hearty congratulations on reaching 800!

    Your bird pictures from Belize continue to be outstanding and I especially likle the Social Flycatcher. I think that like you, if i were in Belize it would be hard to take time out from birding to simply eat.
