Saturday's Critters #262

Welcome to Saturday's Critters !

I am taking a break, slowing down my blogging and commenting the next few weeks. I will only be posting my Saturday's Critter meme. I hope everyone takes time to enjoy the holiday.  Merry Christmas to all who celebrate. 

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!

Pine Siskins and American Goldfinches at the feeders.

Can you see Chewy over in the corner of the deck, he is looking for the squirrels.

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








Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  43. Lots of squirrel watching goes on here too by our two, and much excitement if one ventures onto the veranda. Meanwhile interesting for me to compare our bird sightings...haven't seen any pine siskins which is odd, but lots of American Goldfinches here.
    Eileen, hope you have a wonderful Christmas season and get to do all the things you love.
