Saturday's Critters #251

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!

I have not been many places lately due to the weather so here are more photos from my backyard.

Not sure if this is the Eastern Wood PeWee or a Eastern Phoebe? 



Sorry for the photo quality, they were taken through the window.  I started seeing the warblers on 9/11 and now on 9/23 I am still seeing the Cape May Warblers. 



I've been seeing a few Cape May Warblers at these berries for a week or more. The male Cape May Warbler is a brighter color yellow.



Looks like  a Hermit Thrush like to eat these berries too.



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





Here is a list of my linky parties;

I like watching the birds in my garden too but I couldn't get good pictures of them because the slightest movement will send them flying away.

The Hermit Thrush sure is beautiful.

I saw those berry plants for the first time on our walk yesterday. I think my plant app called them Devil's Walking Stick?

Oh my - lots of cute birds in this post.
Berries feed so many of us, including humans. That's wonderful, isn't it?
Thanks for hosting.
Have a Happy WE, Eileen!
Peace :)

These are beautiful photographs.
My favorite is the first photo.
I can not add my link anymore, last week did not work either and now again not.
Best regards, Irma

The first one has interesting pale colours. Sorry I don't have any critters this week.

Lea said...

It is always fun to see migrating birds return to spend the winter with us! It is amazing to see how far some of them travel.
Thanks for hosting, and have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Weekend!

Phil Slade said...

Good morning Eileen. The Cape May Warbler is rather beautiful. And I'm not sure about the peewee. But thanks for the link up today. Have a good weekend despite the weather.

Helma said...

Hello Eileen,
beautiful pictures of the birds in your backyard.
I wish I had such a backyard :-)
Sorry for my late response but I was internally for study one week and the days were from 9 to 9:30 pm.
No time for blog.
Greetings, Helma

Sometimes bad weather is is nice just to provide time enjoy your photo collection-- I certainly do. That is an Eastern Wood-Pewee-- angular "crested" shape of head, prominent wing bars. First year phoebe may have buffy wing bars and rounder head.

Sandra said...

I would be happy to see yellow birds outside my window. I take photos through the window but it is a truck in a yard. ha ha

Have a nice weekend.

Jenn Jilks said...

Our birds have pretty much flown, we're back to the same old winter birds, for the most part. I'm so happy to see yours!

Last night, we had a mother and 3 small raccoons under the feeder. Must excitement in the dark...
Have a great weekend!

Tom said...

...they look 'berry happy.'

Brian King said...

You get some nice visitors! Beautiful yellow on the warblers!

Nick V. said...

Lovely shots, Eileen, I especially like the little thrush.
All the best, enjoy the weekend.

Sami said...

Love watching the birds in my garden too. The yellow bird is similar to the honeyeater bird that we get here.

Lynne said...

What is the berry?
The Warblers and Thrush no doubt think they are in “berry heaven.”

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

You are the queen of bird photos and identification. I'm participating in Camera Critters this week. Thank you for hosting!

Andy Wilson said...

All those berries make for a nice bird restaurant!

Linda G. said...

What we see most at our feeders are sparrows, various kinds, and the black-capped chickadee. Good pictures of the birds at your feeders and in your yard.

Cloudia said...

They were looking up at you, E! <3

William Kendall said...

They're very pretty.

Angie said...

Eileen - thanks for hosting! I enjoy living vicariously through you and others to see the migrating birds. Being so far north, the birds are slim pickings these days! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Missy George said...

I can't help you with your dilemma about which is which. I'm not familiar with those birds. I think the only one I've seen here is the warbler. Great pictures thanks for sharing hope you're having a good weekend.

Sussi said...

Lovely birds!

Betty Manousos said...

Debbie said...

i am late to the party as i was away. my lovely iPhone will not send emails or i would have emailed you to join me in as i know you would have done that!!

your backyard birds are beautiful, i don't see any of these birds in this area or in my yard!!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

It is hard to tell in that first photo if it's my favorite Eastern Phoebe - It certainly looks one.

I've been here in Kentucky the last several days, and its been really hot and humid, and I've not seen a single bird, but lots of butterflies. :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Those beautiful warblers love the berry bushes -- just love what you see from your window!! Thank you as always for hosting.

Karen S. said...

Oh my such a lovely shade of pink! Great captures, and you get the best shots!

Nick Va said...

Beautiful shots, as usual, Eileen!
Enjoy the new week.
