Saturday's Critters #61

♥♥  Happy Valentine's Day ♥♥

Happy weekend..I hope everyone is well.. It's time to share your critters.. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who has linked up in the past and for those who are linking in on this week's critter party. And of course I always appreciate all my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit.


Suddenly my Pine Siskin numbers have increased from just one to three on Feb 9..I am hoping next time they bring their friend the Redpoll  with them to lunch at Eileen's..




Above are three Pine Siskins on the thistle sock..


Meet my new grandpuppy ..Nibbles is her name... Nibbles is a rescue, part German Shepherd.. I am happy I will be able to puppy sit sometimes.. YEA!!



Isn't she cute? My son surprised us with his new puppy last Sunday when we showed up at his place to go out to dinner.. A cute and wonderful surprise..

I hope you enjoyed my new Grandpuppy, my birds and post..Again I thank you for linking up to the critter party. I also appreciate the visits, comments and the support of my blogging friends................... Have a happy weekend!

  23. Nibbles is a very cute pup. What breed is he? I like the 'thistle sock'. I haven't seen a feeder like that before. What type of thistle seeds do you use?

  55. Oh Eileen, Nibbles is just gorgeous and I know how much you will love babysitting!!! If he needs an "auntie" I am available. Eileen, how can I tell the difference between a Pine Siskins and a Goldfinch beginning to turn? I thought I was looking at finches, but in looking at your close-up, I wonder. What woould be the distinguishing factors?..:)JP

  64. Hi Eileen! Thank you so much for hosting! Happy Valentine's Day!! Your Pine Siskins are just gorgeous, but Nibbles is giving them a run for their money. What a cutie!

  65. Adorable "Nibbles".. . . I love the name!
    Just in time for "Saturdays Critters!"

    ReplyDelete
  66. Nibbles is super cute!
    We have pine siskins here at the moment, and we have been warned that many of them actually develop some kind of salmonella that kill them as well as other birds that share the same feeders. It's sad... we will actually stop feeding for two weeks or so until the pine siskins have moved on (they don't stay here). So far there weren't any dead birds in my yard, but I'm not taking any chances.

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a cute puppy! Hope to see more of her.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The puppy is being really good for being in the cart, he`s a cutie! I`m wondering if some of what I thought were finches on my thistle sock are really pine siskins too,thanks for hosting,have a great rest of the weekend,Phyllis

    ReplyDelete
  69. Congrats on the Grand Puppy, Eileen!
    What a bundle of joy! Enjoy!!
    Have a Beautiful Day!

  70. I now have a new love interest. At first I thought you got yourself a new furry companion. But like any 'grand'...you can spoil 'em and send 'em home afterward. LOL Nibbles is precious.

    Loved the Siskin...we don't have them here that I've ever seen.

    Once again, thanks for taking time to add your link to share your birding post at I'd Rather B Birdin'!!!

  75. Hello Eileen,
    I bet you have melted at the sight of this puppy!
    It is soooo cute :)
    Very interesting to see your Siskins, they are quite similar to ours with few differences!
    You have plenty, I had only one female at the feeder so far this winter.
    Thanks for your kind and faithful visits, I have hardly time to blog... once again!!
    Keep well, hugs from France :)

  83. Howdy, I believe your site could be having
    internet browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great site!
