Saturday's Critters #343

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


Hello and happy Saturday!


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!


July 1, seeing the male and female Eastern Bluebirds in my yard for a few days. Maybe they are starting their 2nd nest for the season. 

These photos are all photos of the male Eastern Bluebird, he is a pretty blue color.   The female does not have as much of the blue color.  



 These are different photos, the Bluebird sat still and posed for me.


I may have mentioned it before, the beautiful Eastern Bluebird is my spark bird.  It is the bird that sparked my interest in birding.. 


The pair of Bluebird like to sit on the end of our gutter, which is right above one of our bluebird houses.  This might be their 2nd time nesting this season. 






Thanks to all my visitors and for all the wonderful comments. Stop back for any replies to your comments. I appreciate everyone who loves critters and has linked up their critter post. Wishing everyone a great weekend!

    How he looks at you curiously, such a cute bird!

    It's so great to watch the bird life, it's always the same for me.

  32. As I stared at your beautiful bluebird and scroll down and look carefully at each picture and thought the fact that I have never seen one in real life and then I scrolled and there was that adorable female. She made me laugh out loud because she looks like she's pregnant and absolutely adorable

  33. Nice portraits! It is so true that birds sometimes will stand perfectly still. I know that this protects them from detection by predators if they "freeze," but at other times maybe it is just a way of saving energy.

  37. Happy Saturday Eileen. Bluebirds are so family oriented they are the module parent...so glad your pair had a successful nesting season same here I saw one of the fledglings with his specked breast in the yard yesterday and I know the parents are still bringing food to the nesting place so I figure second brood of the year. We are so fortunate to have these masters of bug catching in our lives!

    1. Thanks Sondra!
      The Bluebirds are model parents and great at catching the bugs.
