Saturday's Critters #382

 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!


I have some more photos from our late February getaway to Maryland's Eastern shore. On the way home from Ocean City, Md we stopped at Blackwater NWR for a ride on their wildlife drive. These photos were all taken from our car. 

1. As soon as we entered the wildlife drive we saw the Canada Geese and Tundra Swans were sharing these wetlands. 

Click on photos for larger viewing.  




2. Below are the Canada Geese in front but just past the geese is a group of Ring-necked Ducks. You can see the ducks better if you click on photo for a larger view.



3. The Mallard Ducks seem to be a common sight on these wetlands.



4. I was amazed at how many Tundra Swans were seen on this day, they migrate north for the spring/summer season. 





5. More Tundra Swans mixed in with the Canada Geese. 



6. A pretty male Northern Shoveler. 



7. The Great Blue Herons can always be seen at the wildlife refuge. They may have a rookery nearby. 





8. Another view of more Tundra Swans. 



9. There may be a controlled burn in the distance but there are even more Tundra Swans on the river and nearby wetlands. 



We saw a few eagles, the trail in the forest is closed while the Bald Eagles are nesting. I hope you enjoyed our visit to Blackwater Wildlife Refuge located in Cambridge Maryland.

Saturday's Critters # 381

   Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


Hello and happy Saturday!   

Happy Easter everyone!!

I have some back yard birds to share, seen on different days around the end of March. 

1. I have been seeing the Pileated Woodpecker at our wood pile. If the Pileated Woodpeckers are not at the wood pile I hear and see them in the forest next to our house.  This shot looks like a female and was taken from my dining room window. 




2. Below a Downy Woodpecker with a Pine Warbler, the Woodpecker again with a Cardinal and a backside of the Cardinal with a Red-breasted Nuthatch.  



3. The Pine Warbler is a summer bird, they breed in the forest next to our home. 




4. I am still seeing the Red-breasted Nuthatch, at least 3 two males and a female come daily as of March 20th.  




5. March 20th I was still seeing a few Pine Siskins at my feeders.  




6. A bad bad bird, sitting on our swing. Just kidding, I know they need to eat to survive. 




7. A Tufted Titmouse is one of my regular yard birds, seen year round.  




8. From one of our fire road walks, I believe this a Hermit Thrush. I see a reddish tail.  While walking the fire road, I could hear more Pine Warblers, I can hear the Eastern Phoebe and I was sure I heard a Northern Parula. 



9.  Previous years we were seeing 6-8 Great Blue Heron nests in our neighborhood, then last year something happened. They all left, I am not sure why. This year we are seeing a few herons returning to the trees that held a nest. I am hoping they are back and things are normal.  This photo below was taken from my driveway on March 11th, I am not sure if this is when they returned previous years.. 





I hope you enjoyed my birds as much as I do, my simple pleasure is bird watching.
