Saturday's Critters # 462

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!

Kauai was our first big trip since Iceland in 2019,  after 2 years of avoiding Covid and Grand-dog sitting for 8 months. I am breaking down my trip photos, I have SO many to share.  Every day of our trip started out with watching the sunrise in front of our hotel. 


Click on photos for better viewing. 



The rest of the day was driving to various spots to snorkel, sightsee and bird watching. 


1. Me and my shadow, views of the beach at Lawai, Zebra Dove, White-tailed Tropicbirds at Wailua Waterfalls, chickens, Hawaiian Stilts. 




2. The Zebra Doves are pretty, A common bird seen on the island.




3. Chickens are everywhere in Kauai. 




4. Wailua Waterfalls




5. The White-tailed Tropicbirds were flying around the cliffs at the Wailua Waterfalls, they are beautiful birds but hard to capture in flight. 




6. Menehune Fish Pond overlook




7. A good distance away at the Menehune Fish Pond I was able to find the Hawaiian Stilts. 





8. The Cattle Egrets are seen all around the island, usually I saw them along the road while driving. 




Stayed tuned, lots more Kauai photos to come, I hope you enjoyed this post.


Thank you for sharing your critters and post!

  1. Birding in Hawaii is full of surprises, but also sad because of the species that have gone extinct are are very threatened. Your photos are great.

    I appreciate your sponsoring this fun critter event.

  30. Hello Eileen :=)

    What a spectacular sunrise, and to be able to watch a sunrise like that every morning must have been really special. Great to see the Kauai wildlife, from chicks. to stilts, Zebra doves, and the more familiar Cattle egrets. Lovely views of the fishpond and the Wallua waterfalls and even some coastal shots are all enjoyable to see.
    Have a great weekend Eileen and thank you for hosting.
    All the best
