Saturday's Critters #37

Saturday's Critters #37

Happy weekend and welcome to Saturday's Critters! I am looking forward to see all the critters this week!


These are some shots of the the Northern Mockingbird and the American Goldfinch.. The photos were taken a few weeks ago during one of our weekend walks at the local park..


 I saw a few of the Northern Mockingbirds around the trail..


The Goldfinches seem to be enjoying some seeds off of a dead flower..


Here is another angle of the American Goldfinch showing their backs. This is a pretty male with the bright yellow colors of summer.


On the way home from the park, hubby and I always slow down to see the animals on this farm. On this day the goats all turned their heads and looked our way too..Aren't they cute? I hope you enjoyed my birds and critters.. Now its your turn, to share your critters..





 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!

I LOVE your Mockingbird and Goldfinch; especially the blurry yellowish leaves which matches finch's color and make him more stands out♡♡♡
Lovely goats' brownish line oh their faces and ears are SO CUTE:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Both the Mockingbirds and American Goldfinches are among my favorite birds. The goldfinches should return here to the southern US in late fall, wearing their drab plumage. They leave early spring, when their plumage has started turning bright yellow and beautiful. The goats are pretty as well! Thank you for sharing your walk with us!

Yesterday when I was walking to my car from my office I kept hearing an Eastern Phoebe, over and over again. I'd never heard one by my office before, and then I realized it was a Mockingbird -- It totally fooled me!! :-)

I hope you're enjoying your weekend, the weather couldn't be any better could it?
