  9. lol, that´s a weird nest for the Horned owl. But I guess it works :)

  10. The owl is my favourite today, those tufts, and what a place to nest. Guess when the lights are turned on, he/she will get some extra warmth.

  21. LOL, we had a Pileated Woodpecker visit our yard last weekend while my brother was visiting us and it was like shock and awe for him when he saw him on our tree. "Look, look, look .....at that BIG BIRD." We see them all the time. It was like seeing him as a little child again, full of wonder. Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow -- that Pileated woodpecker is to die for! What a stunner!

  30. Good morning Eileen. I do love all of those photos but especially the American Bittern and the Armadillo. What a wonderful animal that is, and how useful to have all that armour against predators.

    Thanks for the link today. Have a lovely Sunday.

  31. When my kids were toddlers and we'd go for walks, my most pressing desire, was the teach them ... 'All life,' and they would finish, "Is precious."

    ReplyDelete

  45. Wonderful shots. Armadillo looks cute. We don't have them in Poland.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love those "Woody the Woodpecker" woodpeckers. I admit .... in all my years in Florida I've only seen a few and NEVER managed to have my camera with me when they were there. LOL

    Great photos!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The woodpecker is gorgeous..as are the Whistling ducks..Have a great weekend..

    ReplyDelete
  48. Excellent shot of the Pileated woodpecker!!
    But then again all the pictures are excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  49. The woodpecker is so bright and beautiful..

    ReplyDelete
  50. Forgot part of what I intended to say...seeing the Whistlers made me homesick for Tex's blogging. When you see them, do you think of her?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Your photos of the pileated woodpeckers are always the best! My favorite in this series is the armadillo - Whatta cutie, is that possible?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Cool sighting of the Great Horned Owl nest upon the utility pole...and the Armadillo is wonderful. I haven't seen one down in FL since about the 70's.
    I am going to try and catch up a little. Funny...I will get on here these past couple of weeks, be right on something, either typing, shopping, Face-booking and the next thing I know I have been asleep for two hours. I am nearly done with the heavy medications and so I feel better.
    Have a wonderful week dear one~

  55. I love the woodpeckers!!!
    Great photos, as always.

  56. Your Woodpecker always amazes me. A handsome fellow he is. Ours looks a bit different here. Wow, I've never seen an armadillo that close-up before. Those whistling ducks are so sweet.

    Nature is surely beautiful in November, isn't it?

  58. I've never seen an armadillo in real life. Thanks for your close-up shots.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Eileen - Do the ducks actually whistle? I was surprised to see the owl on a nest so out in the open - is that normal? Thanks for including the armadillo - I don't know why, but I have always thought they are cute ....

    ReplyDelete
  60. Great shots! I did not post critters yesterday because I did a Veterans Day post and then fell asleep on the couch!

    ReplyDelete
