Saturday's Critters #241

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 photos from our last visit on July 7th to the Conowingo Dam and Susquehanna River trail. We saw lots of Eagles, a few Cormorants, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Black Vultures and a deer.

Bald Eagle on the tower and I believe the other bird is a Black Vulture.

Great Blue Herons were seen up and down the river, great views from the river trail.


More Great Blue Herons, there is a heronry or rookery located in the trees across the river. 


Two Eagles and 5 Great Blue Herons, can your find them all?


Black Vultures hang by the parking lot, some were on top of the cars that were parked. 


I zoomed in on this white-tailed deer, it was on the island in the middle of the river. 



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

Those vultures remind me of a Disney cartoon character-kind of spooky!

Sandra said...

great find on the eagles and I did find the herons and the eagles but it was very difficult and took a while

Angie said...

Eileen - bald eagles are so majestic - warms my heart that you are seeing so many! Any idea why the vultures like to hang in the parking lot? Thanks for hosting, and have a super weekend!

Hello, beautiful photos of all the birds. I really enjoy seeing the Bald Eagles, they are so beautiful. The deer is watching you and posed nicely for the photo. :) Thanks for hosting, Eileen and have a wonderful weekend.

Love the eagles and herons. At Everglades National Park, the Black Vultures were chewing and pulling on the rubber weatherstripping around car windows. Not sure why, but it must taste good! It got so bad that the Park was distributing tarps to cover the visitors' autos.

Tom said...

...the eagle in flight is wonderful.

Hello,
I always like to see the bald eagles, but also the vultures are interesting. Thanks for hosting our pages and have a sunny pleasant weekend!

Phil Slade said...

Eagles and vultures! It's a treat for me to see those Eileen. We get neither of them around here. Thanks for the link-up today.

So good o see thriving wildlife in your shots. Usually I see seaeagles soaring the skies every now and then even if they are fo far off to capture. And deers I used to see almoet every week. Now it is empty. They cut down too many forests and then no rain in months. :( Today I share an old image.

Debbie said...

i forgot to comment on bambi...i LOVE deer. that is a familiar pose, one i see often, you got a great picture with all that foliage around!!!

Nick V. said...

Lovely shots of the birds and the deer, Eileen. I found all of the seven birds in the "magic photo" :-)

Sondra said...

EAGLES!! Love them. LOTS of Vulture! I was trying to remember where I was, and I think it's the Dupont Forest in NC a trail to a Waterfall, the parking lot had stacks of old traps laying around so we could toss one over our cars to avoid being pelted by vulture droppings! My Van is tall and I had trouble getting the tarp up and over so I just did the windshield it was okay when I got back!

Nick V. said...

PS: Thanks for hosting, Eileen! Have a great new week.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It's so neat to see the eagles together. I am never sure when I see a juvenile. We expect to see that white head! Beautiful photos! Happy Saturday! Hugs, Diane

Sandi said...



If I could fly...


Brian King said...

Love the eagles! I wish they were more common in my area. The GBH's are and one of my favorites!

Jenn Jilks said...

We finally ventured out and saw a heron, too.

Betty Crow said...

Amazing to see so many herons in one place. I am so jealous of the bald eagle. I want to see one in front of my camera more than any other bird. One of these days...

Cloudia said...

Thank You Eileen!

Red said...

The great blue herons have great color for blending in and protecting themselves.

Jeevan said...

Looks like a place of birds of prey! Superb capture on the birds and a zoom for deer

Linda W. said...

William Kendall said...

Jean @sonotorganized.com said...

Something so breathtaking about seeing an eagle in flight!

Linda said...

Wow, what does a bald eagle say to a vulture?

Wow you find some great birds. They are so big!

Missy George said...

Great Eagle shots..That deer has it's eye on you..Enjoy your week..

Jeanna said...

Did you know eagles and vultures were pals? That's an impressive combination, I think the vulture knows where its bread is buttered.

Mikael Bergman said...
