Saturday's Critters #227

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

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!

Some more of my yard birds, some winter birds still here as of 4/16/18 and first of the season Eastern Phoebe have arrived.

I am still seeing a lot of White-throated Sparrows around the yard, they have a pretty song. 


Below are two photos of the Eastern Phoebe.





I've been seeing two bunnies in the yard, maybe some baby bunnies will arrive soon.











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

I don't know whether the sparrows in your post is the same as the ones visiting my garden. They do look similar and we have lots of them here. Thank you for hosting and have a great and happy weekend!

Beautiful! Love bunnies.

Glad to see your birds and a bunnie. They have cut down a lot of forest around my area so wildlife has vanished too :( Not fun!

Sussi said...

Haven't seen any phoebes here for the past few weeks but hope to catch up with them and the sparrows when I get to Illinois this weekend.

David Gascoigne said...

It looks like the winter that seemed to go on forever this year is finally relinquishing it’s grip so I will be looking for Eastern Phoebe any day now. Nice reminder for me. White-throated Sparrows are already arriving but a few overwinter here so it’s hard to know which ones are genuine migrants.

Sandra said...

sweet little peter cotton tail bunny... bunnies are becoming pets for the elderly because they are easy to care for, floppy ear bunnies are so cute

Tom said...

...brown seems to be theme today!

Lynne said...

I found your post quite charming Eileen . . .
Especially when you mentioned “sound” . . .
We have had two days of blue sky, bright sun . . .
Springtime perfection . . . cool yet perfect . . .
And being outdoors with the “bird songs” is the best ever . . .

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I don’t think I have ever seen the phoebe (at least not to identify it)..it’s a soft and pretty bird. I always like seeing rabbits. Thanks for hosting this fun sharing party.

Oh! it's Peter Cottontail!! What lovely post! Have a wonderful day!

Jeanie said...

I love that sweet bird with the bit of yellow at the top. And oh, a bunny!

I've only seen two bunnies this year -- they're late too!

Debbie said...

i don't see the eastern phoebe here, the are pretty and have a soft feather pattern!

i have so many bunnies in my yard right now, big bunnies, i am sure to see some little ones soon!! if you are not familiar with how they nest, google it, it is interesting!!!

Lea said...

Eastern Phoebes are just the cutest little birds. The more I see them, the more I like them! Have a great weekend!

Squeeee, who can't grin at the bunny?! Happy weekend. YAM xx

Jo said...

Hi Eileen, I love all LBJ's sparrows, warblers etc. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for hosting this meme. I love joining in and have again today. Have a wonderful day. Jo

Betty Crow said...

We have eastern phoebes nesting in our shed. They don't seem to be afraid. They often pose on our fence and let me take pictures as long as I don't move too much. I would love to have a White-throated sparrow pic to add to my sparrow collection. I like that little splash of yellow. We have a bunny family living in a brush pile not far from the house. They come up to the yard in the night to eat food that fell out of the feeders. Gus likes to chases them away. I don't think he could ever catch one, but it is fun watching him speed after them. Have a wonderful Saturday.

What a cute bunny!

Phil Slade said...

Hi Eileen. I remember that White-throated Sparrows were the most numerous migrant I saw in Canada in late April. I guess that you're getting those migrants now.

I hope You have a lovely weekend, and thanks for today's link-up.

Jeevan said...

Lovely capture on birds and the bunny! The sparrow almost resembles our house sparrow. Your capture on Eastern Phoebe is poetic on the second image.

italiafinlandia said...

Beautiful captures. The bunny is so tender...
Have a nice weekend!

June Caedmon said...

What a sweet little bunny, Eileen! I enjoy watching they Eastern Phoebes we have here. Such neat birds. Have a wonder-filled week!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Maybe you will get many bunnies around in the yard. They are very cute, but not in the garden.
Beautiful shots,

Happy Weekend!

Very nice ! I love the bunny !

Jeanna said...

I didn't expect to see that splash of yellow on any sparrow, quite fetching. I haven't seen the cranes, just heard them, I'm sure they're finding food in the neighborhood but am worried a bit out the robins although everything is just about melted and hopefully the ground is softening.

Merlesworld said...

I love to sit and watch the small birds in our garden they are so quick as they dart around.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

what always blows me away when I come here is you identifying the different sparrows because to me they have always looked the same :)

Well I have my PARENT sparrows busy building a new nest under an awning on the side of the house and then their babies will be the NOISY sparrows later on :)

Lowcarb team member said...

I do like your first photograph of the white-throated sparrow, I can almost hear him singing!

Such a cute looking bunny.

Enjoy your weekend and have a fabulous new week ahead.

All the best Jan

A Colorful World said...

Love that Eastern Phoebe, and that bunny! Hope you are having a wonderful spring. I am back finally after a working break, then being sick and having to make a three day (with travel) trip to Portland. Be back with Critters next week!

Linda W. said...

Awww....cute bunny! Yes, the songbirds are back at our house too, and I love to hear them in the morning.

Mia said...

Great shots, Eileen. Oh I love bunnies!!!!!!! Kisses, my friend.

happyone said...

Great shots of the birds and cute bunny. : )

Angie said...

Eileen - be careful what you wish for with the bunnies ... thanks for hosting!

Linda said...

I don't think we have phoebes in our yard. We do have plenty of bunnies.

Ranten said...

Lovely pictures! Happy sunday!

Anni said...

I'm sending my thanks to you for sharing your blog photos with us bird lovers this weekend. It's our privilege to visit you from I'd Rather B Birdin'!!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

I love to watch sparrows. I don't know what it is about them, but the way they move about on the ground is intriguing to me.

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Thanks for sharing your yard birds and hosting your Saturday's Critters.

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, I sure enjoyed these photos. That bunny is especially cute! Thank you, as always, for sharing and for hosting Saturday's Critters. Best place for critter photos on the web! Take good care and have a happy week ahead! John

I hope you had a Happy Earth Day ...
I appreciated your words on your post above "take care of our earth. It is the only one we have."

All the best Jan

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I was happy to see rabbits in my garden again recently. The foxes had almost eliminated them all! Habe a wonderful week, Eileen. Happy Earth Day!

Kelleyn Rothaermel said...

The bunny is so so cute! When we were in Holland this weekend we passed a parcel of land that was dedicated as a bunny sanctuary. It was fun to see so many bunnies in one place.

Laura. M said...

Lovely Eileen photos.
And this goes for the earth, which can not be commented.
We have an obligation to take care of it, it is the inheritance that we receive and that we will leave to our children.
Good tuesday Eileen.
Besos

Karen S. said...

Hello Eileen, your quotes are perfect and each critter scene after the other such a wonderful view, and gives me hope that I'll be seeing some of that around here too, soon. It's getting better, although still some snow remains and the ice isn't out of our lakes yet.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Eileen; First of all, so sorry for my belated comment.
We can see many sparrows especially in the rice paddy, but not so handsome like White-throated one p;-) TI thought your Eastern Phoebe look a bit like our Pale Thrush. I always admire rich nature in your area v(^_^)v
Thank you SO much for hosting wonderful link and always appreciate your sweet comments♪
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

ellen b. said...

Sweet birds and a cute bunny, too. The wild bunnies around here are increasing in number...no surprise. :) Hope this week is going well for you.

JP A Quiet Corner said...

Eileen, I have come to adore Eastern Phoebes, although I will always remember the one that attacked me!!! I wonder if I'll have lots of bunnies this year like that cutie?...:)JP

Thankful Thursday
