Saturday's Critters #338

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! 

Thanks and  check back for any replies to your comments.


I am sharing some of my recent yard birds.  The Goldfinches are always a treat to see. A brightly colored male and a female nearby.



 The bunnies have a place in our yard too.



 The squirrels are never far away, they know when it time to eat.



A pair of our pond frogs. 




The Indigo Buntings seem to come and go, I am always surprised to see these pretty blue birds in my yard. This Indigo Bunting looks a little young, not entirely the pretty blue color. 








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


Here is my linky:

  3. this time the blue bird is the most beautiful in the group or the indigo buntings. These colors are terrific.
    I like to see the rabbit or the goldfinches, it's not beautiful. The wildlife is so fascinating with you!

  19. We have a superabundance of rabbits this year, and while we enjoy them, they are capable of driving my poor wife crazy as they nibble away on everything that tries to grow in her garden. I think we need a resident Great Horned Owl - and maybe a couple of Red-tailed Hawks too!

  57. You've got the same fun visitors in your yard that I do, including a Blue Bunting, which I'm surprised seems to have stayed around. We did have what I'm sure was a whole family of Cardinals the other day - Five of them were on our front porch, it was a real treat to see and watch them..... where was my camera? :-)

    Hope you are well, Eileen and enjoying your weekend!
