Saturday's Critters #248

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!

My post is more on our visit to Bombay Hook NWR in Delaware. We were there during a great time to see the Egrets, Herons and Shorebirds on the move. It's migration time, sad to see these beauties leaving us for now. 

Pretty view of a couple of Bobolinks.



Deer and it's reflection


A Blue Grosbeak, sorry about the tree branch in the way. 


Just a guess below is a female Common Yellowthroat


Five juvenile Night Herons. 


Peregrine Falcon


Cedar Waxwing, I hope that is berry juice on it's chest. 


Green Heron in the hunt position. There is a shadow of the tree above right in the heron's head.  


Another Peregrine Falcon


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

  1. Hi Eileen, thanks for posting this meme. I love seeing the Peregrine Falcon and yes, I think the red on the waxwing, is berry juice. Have a great day. Jo

  10. Wonderful variety of birds. Very interesting post!

  11. That is a really nice range of birds, Eileen. The Bobolinks have been gone from here for a couple of weeks now, a sure sign that fall is approaching. You would never know it based on temperature. Yesterday it got up to around 33 degrees and we sat out in the patio at our favourite restaurant for dinner last night. Amazing!

  25. The peregrine falcon is an interesting bird. I watched a camera on a nest box. It's also an example of a rescue bird after it was almost wiped out by DDT.

  49. Good morning Eileen, what an incredible shot of the deer which to me seems to be running swiftly, but to capture the reflection too is wonderful. Win, win, I'd say. You had an abundance of critter friends to share today. It's a perfect time to be out and about.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So pretty Eileen! I love seeing the Bobolinks.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love those Bobolinks. The bird banders must have been busy! Nice to see shots of the Peregrine Falcon. I see very few in my south Florida patch, and only had one photo-op over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I haven't seen a Bobolink in years, great photos Eileen. All of them. I really can 'feel' the serenity surrounding that deer.


    Your sharing is much appreciated with all of us at I'd Rather B Birdin'...thanks so much!

  53. Hi Eileen,
    Great array of different species!
    I wonder why the Green heron has this blackish spot on its face???
    You too enjoy the week ahead :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh another wonderful nature spot and fantastic photos!

    Happy Day to you,

  57. Entering my link a little late, but Saturdays are always a hectic time here, Eileen. I loved seeing all your little bird photos as well as an eastern deer!

    ReplyDelete
  58. visiting you is like wandering in the park!

  59. Wonderful birds -- I especially love seeing the blue grosbeak which I never see in real. (Beautiful even if he is trying to hide behind a branch!). You take the best pictures of perching birds -- they just seem to pose for you. Thank you so much for hosting. (I linked up really late Friday night (Pacific Time) and told myself i'd come back and comment when I woke up Saturday morning. (LOL -- I guess I lost the rest of the weekend somehow)! Happy Monday to you -- that bird in your post this morning is beautiful too!!
