Saturday's Critters # 32

Saturday's Critters #32

Happy weekend and welcome to Saturday's Critters! Ok, it's time to share your critters. I am an animal lover, I always look forward to seeing everyone's cute critters..




 I am sharing some of my yardbirds from this week. The Scarlet Tanager is one bird I usually hear singing from the treetops. But on this day the tanager came down into my yard and was bouncing up and down catching some bugs around my weeping cherry tree. The Eastern Bluebird is keeping the tanager company.


 The Scarlet Tanager is a breeder in the woods next to our house.. It is still always a treat to see them out in the open..


Again the Eastern Bluebird and it is keeping company with what I believe is a Eastern Wood Pewee. I could hear the Pewee calling..



The Blue jays are regular visitors to our yard, they love the peanuts..I hope you enjoyed my birds and post this week.




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

The Scarlet Tanager is gorgeous with his bright plumage. I especially enjoy seeing the Blue Jay, we don't have them here and I miss those peanut picking critters.

Bob Bushell said...

The Scarlet Tanager is my fave, it's colour is quite outstanding. But all them are superb.

Phil Slade said...

The first picture is just great Eileen. It's the way it shows the contrasting colours of the Cardinal and the Bluebird. Well the second one is great too, and the Jay.

many thanks for the chance to meet up with everyone from across the world today. Enjoy your weekend.

Such beauties Eileen. All of them. It's been months since I've seen a scarlet tanager. Wow...a most perfect profile you got of it.

Still recouping from my summer ailments so I'm not posting much on Hootin' Anni's yet. Trying to catch up on those who visited with me this week....

Happy weekend dear one...

Black Jack's Carol said...

Oh, my, what wonderful birds are attracted to your backyard. I would give a lot to see any one of them here, but appreciate your wonderful photographs so I can share them second hand :) Thanks for being a wonderful host, Eileen!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Sure wish we had the Tanager here!! Love his vivid color. We do have the Blue bird and I have two blue bird boxes, but the sparrows always build their nests in the blue bird boxes.

Gerald (SK14) said...

love the colour of the scarlet bird

Breathtaking said...

Wow, such colourful beauties in your garden, and lovely photos.

Eileen, I would love to join in
your Saturday's Critters, but I hope you will understand if I don't, as these days I want to spend more time with my 80yr old husband, which means I have to visit less.

Many thanks for your visit!:)

Adam Jones said...

Wow! What a smart looking bird. Lovely pictures as always.

Shannon W. said...

That Scarlet Tanager is stunning. They're a colourful family.

Christian Weiß said...

Great birds, the tanagar is really a color spot.

Our photos said...

Very nice !

Mike said...

Beautiful! So cool that the Tanager and Bluebird were close enough to be in the same photo!

Andrea Priebe said...

Your Easter Bluebird seems to make the rounds and has wide and varied taste. The Tanager is a magnificent bird and I love that his mate is yellow ... really? I have a Pewee and a Phoebe calling all of the time and on a rare occasion I see one of them and can't, for the life of me, tell which one it is. Wonderful post, Eileen.

Betsy Brock said...

Oh, I'm SO jealous you have a tanager in your yard! Gorgeous!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Hi Eileen! I always enjoy your photos! I've loved catching up on your blog seeing what I've missed this week--The fledgling Tufted Titmouse is a real cutie!! Our birds are starting to return now that I'm feeding them again. I stopped when the Phoebe's were raising their brood.

Susan said...

Oh my...the Scarlet Tanager is beautiful. Maybe one day I'll be lucky enough to see one for myself. That bright orange, wow!

Stephanie said...

The Tanager bird is gorgeous as well as the Blue Jay.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...
