Happy Memorial Day weekend!! Remember all those who sacrificed and died while serving our great country.

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 images from our walk at the local Hashawha Nature Center.  Canada Geese with some older goslings.

  5. Kanada gäss är fåglar jag känner igen, vi har dem här också vid vattendrag och sjöar. Vanlig över stora delar av världen gissar jag. Trevliga bilder där de går med sina småttingar.

    Eastern kingbirds i boet, de är väl dolda så jag gissar att du vet var du skall leta för att få syn på dem.

    Trevlig helg!

  9. Hello Eileen,
    Nice series of photos of these different birds.
    The last photo is my favorite.

    Best regards, Irma

  10. I have found that kingbird nests are often very well hidden. Up in Illinois there was a goose with gosling and a gander which was extremely aggressive. They had to shut down the boardwalk because it would physically attack humans who ventured near.

  11. those goslings are adorable and the bird in the green leaves is so beautiful, the one with the balls hanging from the trees

  16. Hi Eileen, Hope you had an excellent week and enjoyed the blog break. I am going to need one of those myself soon. This morning I enjoyed all your pics but especially the Canada Geese like I've been seeing at Green Lake on my walks. So, hope it's OK, I'm linking up my post from yesterday which featured some goslings. Quick question: Can I link up two posts under one Saturday's Critters? Thanks, as always, for hosting. And thanks for your comments on my blog ... I always appreciate them. Have a happy long weekend! John

  26. Hello Eileen. I must echo your first sentence. The bond between our two countries so far apart is an important and I hope everlasting one. Soon in the UK we commemorate the D Day landings in France which helped to save Europe from domination by Germany. Have a great weekend my friend.

    1. I agree with you, Phil! My dad was on Normandy Beach on the day after D Day. He always had tremendous respect for our allies. Our bond with them keeps all of us safe!

  37. Hello Eileen! I saw a beautiful, similar sight at my daughter's house last week alongside the pond that backs up to their yard. A mother Canada Goose was fussing over her wee ones - balls of soft fluff! At home, my husband fills a bird feeder and we both enjoy seeing different species flitter about. So do our 6 cats! (Through the window only, of course! - They never go outside!)

  44. Good morning Eileen, and I'm hoping your Memorial Day celebrations are not happening in the pouring rain as we have here. Although it's rained on this day before, still planning on going. My son in law is currently deployed now and it's always been a major part of my world. You sure have been to more incredible places, and your captures are outstanding. Happy trails enjoy your day!
