Saturday's Critters #163
Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.
A male Painted Bunting.
Juvenile Little Blue Heron, Anhinga and a Tricolored Heron.
The same spot a few seconds later, there was the Anhinga, two Glossy Ibis and I believe a juvenile Little Blue Heron or could be an Egret.
A Glossy Ibis
My favorite Black-bellied Whistling Ducks.
The Green Heron another favorite bird.
I am not sure if there are two eagles or an eagle and osprey battling over a fish.
An Armadillo seen on the way out of Circle B Reserve.
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!

Morning Eileen. I can see why you say that place never disappoints. Love the armadillo - what a great animal. Love the colours in the Glossy Ibis too. It's not often you see those shades captured like that. Have a great weekend down there in the sun.ReplyDelete
I painted bunting is gorgeous! We'll be on the look out for one now! Love all of your critters today! Thanks for hosting! Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
you must be in heaven seeing the painted's!! and so fun to see such a huge variety of the birds we only hoped to see up here!!ReplyDelete

Great sighting of critters! Thank you, Eileen for hosting and have a beautiful day!ReplyDelete
the anhinga looks like a flamenco dancer and I love the glossy ibis, much prettier than the whiteReplyDelete
Hi Eileen, The Painted Bunting is one of my favorite birds with its beautiful colors and you have a great shot of one to start this edition of Saturday's Critters! Enjoyed all the photos. Thank you, as always, for sharing and hosting. Wishing you a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Hi Eileen, I loved that first photo. The bird looks so cute and lovely. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Your photos of the birds are wonderful Eileen and oh my goodness...the Armadillo...love it!ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds! Great shot of the armadillo too. I usually don't them in the daytime, except if they are dead on the side of the road!ReplyDelete
Armadillo! I haven't seen that creature for a looong time. Great capture, Eileen.ReplyDelete
I have yet to visit Honeymoon Beach. I find it more satisfying to capture photos of Painted Buntings in the wild than at a feeder. Just love those colors.ReplyDelete
...lots of neat critters, I love the Armadillo!ReplyDelete
There are painted buntings around here?!! Awww. I've never seen ONE. JeezReplyDelete
Love your shots
All photos are wonderful ~ as always ~ my favorite is the painted bunting and the armadillo ~ thanks,ReplyDelete
Wishing you a Happy Weekend ~ ^_^
Haven't posted on your link up in awhile. We had a great road trip through the south so lots of material for posting. We ended up in FL. Are you living there now full time?ReplyDelete
Fantastic birds to witness on your visit and beautifully photographed too, Eileen!ReplyDelete
I just adore the armadillo shot! He's a cutie in his own right!
Enjoy your weekend!
Once again lots of birds, amazing aspects seen in your travel, Eileen! Many thanks for sharing them with us! A very good day and weekend, too!ReplyDelete
Wonderful birds photos! Happy weekend!:)ReplyDelete
The armadillo is such a catch Eileen! The glossy ibis would probably hard to overlook! And I see that last Nov. you went on vacation to Mexico - hope you had fun walking on the beach (one of my favorite things to do)!ReplyDelete
Also, you are missed at All SEASONS - hope to see you there soon! (photo link open from Sunday through Wednesday evening 7pm Pacific time) Have a great weekend:)
Loved this post Eileen, great shots of the critters. A place we will definitely have to check out the next time we go to Florida. I hope to join in one of these days but am not up to regular blogging yet. Fighting off my third bad cold. So many people walking around are coughing and sneezing. That time of the year I guess.ReplyDelete
Eileen, nice collection, especially the Armadillo. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I love seeing the assortment of birds & creatures that you spot, Eileen!ReplyDelete
Wow an armadillo. Great photo. I've never seen one. Can't say they are cute!! : )ReplyDelete
Dearest Eileen; Wow, Armadillo and not in the park, how wonderful to be able to see such unique critter♡♡♡ Painted Bunting is so lovely♩ I have new pictures of cormorants to share. I will check the difference from Anhinga :-) I always LOVE to see "The Green Heron" in your post, wishing to be able see another color p:-)ReplyDelete
So sorry for my late linking, Dear friend.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

Oh Eileen, Eileen, Eileen...that close-up of the male bunting is PERFECT!!! From the shore birds to the Eagles and the Green Heron, you had me hooked and then the armadillo entered the picture!!!...:)JPReplyDelete

The last photo is a fine looking fellow.ReplyDelete
Love the Armadillo..good shot!! good catches of the Glossy Ibis and the Green Heron as well..I hope you are enjoying your weekend..I'll have to see if I have any critters to share..ReplyDelete
Never saw that last bird. Must be hard to fly with that armor. :))ReplyDelete
Wow! An armadillo! I've only ever seen one once and it was late at night so I didn't get a very good look.ReplyDelete
No armadillos here! i enjoyed your post.ReplyDelete
Armadillo???? That is something I have never seen nor heard about before.ReplyDelete
You have seen so great birds! Wonderful series of photos.ReplyDelete
Painting Bunting and Armadillo in one post! Thats not playing the game - so want to see both!ReplyDelete
Sorry about slow reply - I have been in New Zealand and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.
Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
I also want to convey my thanks to you for sharing this with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin'....it's always much appreciated. Of course, love the birds today, but that armadillo steals the show this time. I see 'em here, but not this close.ReplyDelete
I love our meetings on Saturday's Critters and your fantastic photos !!ReplyDelete
I have a problem with the connection to the new widget, but always I've included a link to your blog!
Happy weekend !!
Love the bird shots, Eileen, but the armadillo takes the prize this week!ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting.
Hi Eileen! I joined this week. Not mutch to see in my garden this time of the year so a pic from April. Your bird shots are great, as always!ReplyDelete
It's beautiful day, all those birds, water birds. And the Armadillo, brilliant.ReplyDelete
Whistlers! Yeah! I miss seeing Tex's Whistlers. Love that Ibis...his feathers are like the male turkey feathers...reflects all kinds of colors according to how the sun hits them I don't think we have them here, but I sure wish we did.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a great week ahead of you Eileen...your comments are always so cheery.
wonderful photos of the different birds. The glossy Ibis is fabulous !
Best regards, Synnöve
I love the colours in the plumage of the glossy ibis.ReplyDelete
I always enjoy my visits to your blog Eileen,ReplyDelete
The images you share showing the many different birds and the range of colours in their plumage, is just a delight.
I do hope you've had a good weekend, we have had a lot of rain in the UK.
My good wishes for the coming new week
All the best Jan
Finally got my post in, it's been a full busy and working weekend! Your critters are pretty and right where they belong, and Friday morning, we got our squirrel intruder out!ReplyDelete
Terrific blog . I love your birding shots...:)ReplyDelete

Um abraço e boa semana.

I didn't realise you had Armadillos in the U.S. We saw one in Argentina years ago. Another nice collection of birds too.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! The armadillo is amazing- I have always been fascinated by them!ReplyDelete
Hi Eileen. What a large wing span on the Anhinga, and, beautiful color. I really like your shot over the lake with the eagle. Great photos. Have a splendid day!ReplyDelete
oh that armadillo made me laugh! Only seen one in a zoo :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful post, filled with lovely birds Eileen and my favorites of them is the Anhingas. Cannot wait to see them again this week ending. Thank you for all that you do in hosting this meme~ReplyDelete
You got some of everything! Whistlers are also my favorites.ReplyDelete
Fantastic photos Eileen!
