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;
