Saturday's Critters #304


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 of my yard birds, Monarch butterflies and a couple of neighborhood birds from our walk on the fire road. They were seen from Sept 25 to Sept 29th. 

On Sept 25th, the female Red-bellied Woodpecker at my suet ball feeder. 


Sept 27th Northern Cardinal trying to hide from my camera.


Chipmunk caught in the act, the mouth shape looks like a peanut. 


On Sept 29th we walked on the fire road for about 3 miles round trip. The next 4 photos are from 9/29. This Northern Flicker was calling out to another, when I found it sitting high in a tree top.


Off the fire road, I was watching a few birds eating these berries.  Below is a Tufted Titmouse. 


I am guessing this is a Red-tailed Hawk, I see a dark belly band and dark tips on the wings and brown head. 


A close cropped photo of the hawk in flight.




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















Here is a list of my linky parties;

  25. my first laugh out loud of today, that chipmunk made me laugh. so cute and it does look like he has a whole peanut I sideways... I love the cardinal peeking out between the leaves.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Just go for a walk and you find many interesting critters. You might have to work a bit but they're there like the cardinal.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hello Eileen. That cardinal made me laugh. He's looking straight down your lens as if to say "I'm not coming out until you move that". Your flicker pictures are just super and what a pity we can't hear their calling to each other.

    Have a great weekend and thanks for the link today.

  44. I love when my chipmunks try to jam two peanuts in their cheeks. They are so frantic to gather what they can. Love your array of birds too.

  45. We are seeing fewer and fewer birds around here. Most have headed south and now it's just the winter ones left, which have already started to visit my feeders.
    Enjoy your weekend,

  51. Hi Eileen!

    Ni verkar ha mera sommar kvar än vi har, här finns inga fjärilar eller flygande insekter mera, lite sorgligt känns det alltid vid denna tid på året. Men jag har börjat mata våra vinterfåglar, lite tidigt men maten lockar fram dem så jag kan fotografera dem.
    Bra gjort att fånga en flygande hök!

  52. Love those Flickers - I have a real fondness for all kinds of Woodpecker, but we dont have any in Australia!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
