Saturday's Critters #228

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


If you love 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!


These are some more images from our visit to Kiwanis Lake in York Pa. The Canada Geese have claimed most of the park area for themselves. Just watch where you walk.




It was a windy day, check out the feathers on this Great Egret below.

  6. Good Morning Eileen. You made me laugh there - "watch where you walk". Yes, those Canadas do know how to make a mess. What a beautiful condition that Great Egret is, I've never seen one in breeding dress.

    Have a lovely weekend and thanks for today's link.

  15. Hi Eileen, I have no entries yet for this week, but wanted to stop by and tell you what a beautiful share you had, and those nests on previous post are amazing. I can only see such in Florida. Recently I did hear of a rookery of Great Blue Herons a two hour drive from here though...hmm Happy week...hoping for Friday~

  36. Love the nest pic~ wonderful. And the windblown feathers are beautiful. I know what you mean about Canada Geese ... I had a real love-hate relationship with them when we stayed on the lake in Oregon. So sweet with their family groups on the water ... so messy on the land around us. Thank you for hosting.

  37. Lovely views of the Egret.
    So perfectly white and smart!
    Have a nice weekend, Eileen!

  38. I remember Vs of Geese flying overhead as they migrated. What a sight!

  39. Astonishing feathers, so delicate looking!

  40. Hi Eileen, What a neat group of photos. I now know what they mean by "getting the feathers ruffled." :-) The Great Egret takes it in stride. Thanks for sharing, as always, and for your kind comments on my blog. Hope you have a great weekend! John

  41. Where there are geese, there are geese "landmines"!

  48. had to laugh at 'just watch where you walk ' as it is the same situation at a local park close to me where they love the creek :)

  49. Hello Eileen,
    you show some very beautiful pictures and I think the egret is also put on the picture very nicely.
    I never thought about sharing my birds. Because of the accident, I still have to get income again. Next week I will share the post of the tree stickers.

    Have a very nice new week.
    Greetings, Helma

  60. Beautiful photos. It is very hot here and the birds are back in force. There is a woodpecker that never stops, crows to pick the fruit off any tree and more pigeons than I would wish. And they all make the most awful racket very early in the morning :-)
