Saturday's Critters #215

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


If you love critters and all God's creatures 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!

I am sharing some of my backyard birds and my grand-doggie Nibbles. I hope your enjoy!

January 13th the Blue Jays again were numerous visitors.





Jan 17th another dusting of snow, a squirrel, some Cardinals and Sparrows were on the deck.


Jan. 19th the Red-bellied Woodpecker is a daily visitor, they like the suet, peanuts and peanut suet balls.




Jan 19th, one of the squirrels came to the window, I think he was asking for more bird food.


Jan 12th the Pine Warbler chowing down on some suet.



Chinese Zodiac, it is the Year of the Dog. I am sharing my grand-doggie Nibbles.  This was my son's phone photo. Nibbles, she is a cutie!









I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments this past year ! 


Here is a list of my linky parties;

Wow - just love the Blue Jays - so different from the ones out here on the West Coast. We saw a few when we last visited our son and his family in West Virginia. Cute hungry squirrel and such a cute Grand Doggie - and cut name.

Tom said...

...I love the Blue Jays.

Dearest Eileen; First of all, Thank you very much for mentioning about 'Year of the Dog' in Chinese Zodiac which we use♪ Nibbles is truly a Lovely Girl♡♡♡
I LOVE the scene of blue jay with snow; and felt envious for the varieties of visors you always have(♡^.^♡) I checked the word suet and learned what it is p:-)
I appreciate the wonderful link and enjoyed your nature pictures.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

It is wonderful to see such beautiful birds and a squirrel through the window. Pat the Nibbles from me. Regards.

NatureFootstep said...

the Jay has a cool posture. Is it trying to scare someone else away?

Thanks for hosting and have a great week. I´ll be hanging up my Exhibition on Monday. It will be fun. :)

Hello, Eileen, beautiful collection of photos again this week. The dog is beautiful and the blue jay is a favourite of mine as I like blue and also because we don't have these birds here in Australia.
Have a great new week!

Sandi said...

I wonder what Nibbles is thinking there!

Brian King said...

Great photos of the Blue Jay! They certainly aren't shy about gorging! Neither are the squirrels for that matter.

Cloudia said...

Thank you

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Nibbles sure looks like a friendly dog! Love your birds today...wish we could see our Scrub Jay again. Happy weekend!

Cloudia said...

Yes, E. I love nibbles. And it will be the year of the brown earth dog starting next month :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I’d almost expect the squirrel to knock on your door and ask for more food next! Nibbles has such pretty eyes. Your winter birds are wonderful ... and no wonder since they are so well fed!

Sondra said...

Squirrels are so forward sometimes...lol. Love the Jay and Nibbles is a cutie!

Bob Bushell said...

I love Nibbles, cute. And also the Woodpecker, beautiful bird.

You are providing lots of good things to eat for your bird visitors.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Very pretty jays and perky little Nibbles! zLove that Pine Warbler. Went looking for them early this morning at a spot where they are often found during the winter, but very windy and maybe it just kept them humkering down. Thanks for hosting!

Jo said...

Hi Eileen, your blue jays are beautiful! Thanks for hosting this meme. I'm not able to link up today, probably the Windows Issue on my side! Please link me. Have a great Saturday. Jo

Sussi said...

Phil Slade said...

Hello Eileen. No, the Pochard and the Redhead are entirely different species if closely related. You have so much snow but good to see all those species. I love nibbles, very foxy!

Dee said...

William Kendall said...

Nibbles is a cutie!

Your deck is beautiful and quite the haven, too! Gorgeous photos, as always.

We were wondering what "year" it was and I hadn't checked it out yet! Thanks for the reminder. Cheers to the dogs!

Hello Eileen,
I always enjoy your gorgeous photos of the lovely critters so I thought I would link up with you for the Saturday critters as my today's post is almost all about birds, although unfortunately in Greek!
I wish you a lovely Sunday!!!

As always Eileen thank you for sharing the birds - the Blue Jay looks all fluffy feathered in the winter weather, great closeup.

Hi Eileen, Neat Blue Jay shots! Your deck looks like a great spot for birding! Nibbles is definitely a cutie! Thank you for sharing Saturday Critters #215. And thank you for telling me about your visit to Sequim. I have to agree that is a marvelous spot. A good friend recently retired there and says it is a wonderful place for retirement. Wishing you a happy week ahead! John
