Hello and happy Saturday!

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 am sharing more recent yard birds and birds seen on our local fire road walks to the lake. I was seeing migrant warblers in my yard for most of September. They love the Devil's Walking Stick berries. Photos were taken from my windows, it is nice to see these birds without having to travel somewhere.
I may be away from my computer but I will be visiting everyone who has linked up a post and those who leave me a comment as soon as possible. Thank you always for participating and loving all the critters.
1. Below male and female Cape May Warblers, guessing the bottom row is a Tennessee Warbler and far right is a male Black-throated Blue Warbler.
2. I know these photos and birds all look familiar, but they are new photos I have not posted previously. I have been seeing the Cape May Warblers at these berries every day for weeks. Some times there are 4-5 Cape May Warblers chowing down berries.
3. The photos below are from one of our morning walks to the lake, we saw 2-3 Great Blue Herons, Double-crested Cormorant, Green Heron and the Belted Kingfisher can be found in the same spot almost daily.
3-A I was able to catch the Belted Kingfisher with the Green Heron hanging out on the same tree. The Green Heron is a little hidden, can you find it below?
4. A little further drive away is one of my favorite county parks, we do a loop hike around the park. We saw a large flock of Blackbirds, maybe Grackles, a group of Cedar Waxwings were also flying across the park. A Gray Catbird, Finches, Downy Woodpecker and a visit to the park's raptor center.
5. Back in my yard, the male and female Black-throated Blue Warblers were being seen eating the berries. During the month of September I could not pass my windows without looking out and seeing Warblers eating these berries.
5-A. The Black-throated Blue Warbler , it is 4-5 inches in length. The male is blue above with white underneath and has a black throat, face and sides. The female is a brown-olive color and has the white spot on it's wing, my photo of the female is on the top left above.
6. Living so close to the reservoir, their are days we take a ride around the lake to see the dam. On this day there was a small group of Canada Geese and a group of Double-crested Cormorants.
7. A group of Double-crested Cormorants seen swimming in the reservoir near the dam bridge.
8. A view of our lake during one of our early morning walks, we saw the steam fog rising over the lake.
An added extra, our grandson Wyatt not a critter but very cute.
