Saturday's Critters #74

Happy weekend, everyone!  It's Saturday and 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 my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit.

I am sharing more of the birds we saw while visiting the Circle B Preserve near Lakeland Florida.


A Little Blue Heron



A Black-crowned Night Heron


A Tricolored Heron, I love the breeding blue color on this heron's bill.


We saw a lot of White Ibis, Great Egret and Wood Storks

I hope enjoyed my Florida birds.. I still have more Florida places and birds to share..that will be in a future post..Thank you for the visits and for all the nice comments.. As always I appreciate your participating with my critter party..Have a happy weekend!

  9. Your bird photos are great, I especially like the Tri-Colored Heron, its feathers are perfection and I like the way the ones on the wings look so carefully arranged. The blue on the face is elegant, too, and what a long sharp beak it has!

  11. Hi Eileen--I laughed when I saw the photo of the little Blue Heron--I don't know if it's the eyes or what, but what a silly face.
    Great shots . You really saw a lot there. What an enjoyable trip.

  24. Those are amazing birds. I've always thought the blue heron was so graceful and pretty. The second one I've never seen before and wouldn't have had any idea that it was a heron. Great photos, Eileen!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dearest Eileen; So amazing to see your great captures of three different Herons♡♡♡
    I could have a photograph of usual white heron today p:-) I DO wish we have place like Circle B Preserve in my area :-)
    Thank you very much for hosting, Dear friend. I wish I had the energy to visit other friends... Night Night from Japan.

  33. the day of the herons!!! gorgeous "big" birds, they are all my favorites!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wonderful photos from Circle B, a place that I still have not visited, believe it or not. I must admit to being a stay-at-home kind of birder, mostly because of having a wetland adjacent to my Florida home, and so many local opportunities when I am here in my second home in Illinois.

  43. Hello Eileen. You have some stunners there. The Tri-coloured Heron is a real winner with your picture capturing such splendid summer plumage detail. But the Little Blue runs it close and I love the ribbons on the Night Heron - all very splendid.

    Thanks for hosting again and enjoy your weekend.

  55. Wonderful photographs! Tri-colored Herons and Little Blue Herons are both on my I-hope-I-see-some-day list. They are both so beautiful and I, too, love that blue breeding color. It is magnificent. We do have Black-crowned Night Herons at Reifel Sanctuary, but Bill and I haven't been there since he sold his truck. It's a bit too far to bike. All to say this is great post! Thanks so much for hosting. I hope you are having a happy weekend!
