Saturday's Critters # 231

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 of my yard birds during the end of April and part of May. The chipmunks enjoy the bird seed along with the birds and squirrels.

One of my favorite migrating Spring birds, is the Rose-breasted Grosbeak.


The farm down the street from me has 3 baby horses, they are so cute. There are 2 seen on this photo.


The Chipping Sparrows have returned to the yard.


The chipmunks enjoy seed dropped by the birds.


The female Cardinal is a regular visitor.


The Yellow-rumped Warbler is a new yard bird, I've never seen them on my feeders before.


Even the Goldfinch in the background is wondering why the warbler is at the feeder, lol.



I hope you enjoyed my bird and critter photos. 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;

If I were half as handsome as a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak I would be exhausted from fighting off women!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Beautiful pics of your local critters. I love your bird photos they are so very clear and sharp.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

The grosbeak is one of my favoite birds, in fact, the "spark bird" which gave impetus to my interest in birds.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The little chipmunk sure is sweet. I don't think I've ever seen one here in Florida. Lots of birds in the feeders this morning though! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Diane

Sandra said...

I saw another photo of a yellow rump at a feeder . Maybe this is a new trend.

Debbie said...

i have never seen a grosbeak, they are a beautiful bird and you got a great snap of it - with that cute head tilt!!

i see the yellow rumped warblers only in the winter but i too have one still hanging around. they look different in their summer wear, mine looks like yours but is a much lighter color in winter!!

where's the sun?!?!

hello Eileen. Your yard birds are looking in fine fettle now that spring is finally here. I especially like the Rose-breasted grosbeak and its varied and contrasting colours. The redcap of that little Chipping Sparrow looks so bright!

it only takes a few birds added to my weeks list to make me happy all week. Like the Grosbeak, I watched a feeder the other day attracting a number of them.

Carol Blackburn said...

Two new ones for me; the grosbeak and warbler. Such fun! Thanks for the great pictures. Enjoy your week.
