Saturday's Critters #332

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!


Surprise here I am with more yard birds. These were seen on the weekend of April 18th.   I've been seeing more American Goldfinches lately, the male below has his pretty summer colors. 





The Chipmunks are regular visitors to my deck, they know where to find the good food.



There are times I look out my window I see more squirrels than birds.  The critters are well fed.



A pair of Mourning Doves on the deck railing..


 A Carolina Wren searching for sunflower seeds or suet crumbs.



Sharing a meal are the Pine Warbler and a Downy Woodpecker.


I have not shared our new Grand-puppy, Winnie the Corgi has now joined our other grand-pups Nibbles and Chewy. We met Winnie the Corgi for the first on March 15th, before the stay at home started.






I hope everyone is safe, healthy and happy!  


Here is my linky:




Thanks to all my visitors and for all the wonderful comments. I appreciate everyone who loves critters and has linked up their critter post.

  20. The goldfinches look so handsome at this time of the year, with their crisp yellow plumage. They are by far the most common species at my feeders right now, with Mourning Doves a close second.

  25. i always enjoy your yard birds, seeing your visitors as opposed to who visits me. the goldfinch is gorgeous, i have not seen one since they dressed for summer. i am seeing a lot of chipmunks, they are so fast and difficult to photograph but they are so cute!!

    i see most of these birds. i think your yard has more of a "woods" setting than mine, and you see some of those birds that i do not!!

    beautiful images today, many thanks for hosting!!

  29. The more I hear about Corgis, the more I like them. Oliver does that flat hind leg thing too, I think it's hilarious. You are making the downy woodpecker one of my favorite birds with all your lovely photos. I miss the goldfinches that used to populate the tree outside my window, wonder where they went. Your pups are adorable, have a great weekend, Eileen (the birds are very active this late morning as I type this).

    Há sempre mil motivos para fotografar, por aí! Grata pela encantadora partilha!
    Beijinhos! Por aqui também estamos bem... mas é um stress, a série de medidas de precaução que tive de introduzir nas nossas rotinas diárias... e que tomam imenso do meu tempo!... Mas terei de continuar a apostar nelas, para evitar problemas de saúde da minha mãe!...
