Saturday's Critters #131

Saturday's Critters #131

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

Wishing a Happy Father's  Day to all the father's in blog world.  I am sharing my male Red-bellied Woodpecker. He is a treat to see any time he visits my yard.


 The Red-bellied Woodpecker put on a show for me.






The woodpeckers are always vocal around my yard. If this one sees me outside he will start chatting away. I think he is asking for some peanuts.


As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

  9. Dearest Eileen; I LOVED your sweet male Red-bellied Woodpecker; How CUTE♬♬♬ I especially love the third photo you kindly posted larger one from the collage♡♡♡
    The color coordination of his body is amazing, I realized that the eyes also have the tinge of orange♪

    My husband is still trying to do for my late parents house what he can do to look better. Repairing net window, painting weather door etc.; haha, just wishing his efforts will be rewarded. I did my first painting job p;-)
    I WISH I can visitmany of my kind friends this weekend.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  60. lovely photos of a handsome little woodpecker

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'll say your woodpecker put on a show for you. Mine fly in, take a few bites, then fly back out again. (Although I have managed to snap a few photos of them when they do.) Have you seen your male feeding his female mate? (I was fascinated the first time I saw the male doing that in my yard.)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Those are terrific shots, Eileen.

    When the West Virginia Red-bellieds see me, they let out a squawk and fly off into the woods.
