Saturday's Critters #205

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

If you love critters like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

For my critter post I am sharing mostly bird photos from our visit to the Susquehanna River and Conowingo Dam. This time of the year you can usually see  a hundred or more Bald Eagles. We went a little early and these are some of the birds and photos from our visit.

Double-crested Cormorants.

  5. Good Morning Eileen. Thanks for the link-up this morning. I am so impressed with your raptor count. I can only dream of seeing one Bald Eagle, never mind a hundred.

    Super shots of the Great Blue Heron. What a tremendous bill they have - it gives some idea of how big the heron really is.

    Have a great weekend.

  12. Bald Eagle is no longer a rarity in southern Ontario, but I have certainly never seen a hundred at one time. Must be a great spectacle.

  41. Eileen - as you know, I wrote in my post this week about the recovery of bald eagles, so it was serendipity to see so many in your post. AWESOME! Thanks for hosting this wonderful linky.

  47. The heron hiding in the rocks is an amazing photo!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How exciting to see multiple bald eagles!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Some gorgeous birds here. I particularly like the herons and the birds of prey. We see herons from time to time here. I distinctly remember seeing some down at the estuary of the Glenelg Rvier just over the state border one time. I didn't know what they were and had to look them up when I got home - Night Herons. Very similar to your great blue heron, but in shades of brown.

    We have birds of prey and we often see them while driving, but rarely in photographable spots like this. Great photos :D The biggest we have is the wedged tale eagle and I've seen them once in my life circling high above. To see them like this is truly an honour.

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos :D

    Best wishes,
    Liz

  53. Such wonderful eagle photos, really appreciated the ones of the juvenile eagles. Eagles usually arrive in our area (well, north of us) around December or January. I'm hoping to get to see them this year. Looks like you saw a lot of wonderful and interesting birds.

  54. I am finding I have no ambition today & I should be out birding. Instead I tought I'd go out in search of those fine feathered beauties with YOU! Thanks for letting me and all at I'd Rather B Birdin' tag along.
