Welcome to Saturday's Critters!
Hello and happy Saturday!
I feel like I am sharing the same photos, I have not been anywhere special. Hubby and I are doing well, keeping our distance. I am still cutting back on my computer time, resting my eyes. We are waiting for the vaccine, it is slow to arrive here. On a pretty sky day, hubby and I took a walk to the lake. These photos are from my back yard, luckily I see the birds right outside my windows.
1. It seems like it snows every day or every other day, the snow doesn't get a chance to melt before it snows again. In my mosaic I am sharing the Red-shouldered Hawk, a view of the lake, Red-breasted Nuthatch, female Cardinal, Pine Siskin with a Dark-eyed Junco and a male Purple Finch.
2. Over the shoulder look, his back is to the feeders. I am pretty sure this is a young Red-shouldered Hawk. I have caught him in my yard a few times now.
3. I do love seeing these cute Red-breasted Nuthatches this winter, I see at least 2 males and 1 female every day.
4. I see lot of Dark-eyed Junco after or during a snow storm.
5. A pretty male Purple Finch, if you look closely you can see it is snowing.
6. There is a feeding frenzy at my feeders when we have a snow storm. Below are the usual birds at my feeders, the Cardinals, Dark-eyed Junco, Woodpecker, squirrels and one day I saw 20 or more Grackles with a few Starlings mixed in.
7. Below are 2 male Cardinals, one female Cardinal and a Dark-eyed Junco. The squirrel has taken over the feeder.
8. I counted 8-9 squirrels on my deck and feeders, where are the birds? The Hawk must be sitting close by, the squirrels do not seem to worry about a hawk.
Update: Our Grandson Wyatt arrived on 2/15, a healthy 6lb 7oz. Hubby and I, Mama Allie and our son are doing well and very happy. Hubby and I are now happy grandparents..
