Saturday's Critters # 467

 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 will be away from my computer, but I will visit your critter posts and blogs as soon as possible. Thanks for linking up and for your comments. 

I hope you will enjoy some more of my Kauai Birds, each day we visited different beach parks. I found some birds in each park. I promise to be done with my Kauai posts soon. Just one more post to go hang in there. 


1. Salt Pond Beach Park, here I found the Wandering Tattler, the Pacific Golden Plover, the Common Myna and the chickens.





2. There are two Tattlers seen in Hawaii, the Wandering Tattler and the Gray-tailed Tattler, they are shorebirds found on the Pacific Coast and Hawaii. This bird forages while bobbing it's tail up and down. 





3. The Pacific Golden Plover was seen in various places around the Island of Kauai.





4. At the Spouting Horn Park, I watched a Cattle Egret foraging, there were also some of the Red-crested Cardinals, Common Myna and chickens. 





5. The larger shot of the Cattle Egret. 





6. One of the few Brown Anole lizards we saw during our vacation.




7. Kauai Coffee Company self guided tour. The gift shop, the huge metal chicken, Saffron Finch, Java Saprrow, Golden Plover, various flowers and coffee trees. 



8. Three Java Sparrows which is a lifer for me. Also seen here was a Saffron Finch. I have seen the Saffron Finches in Curacao. 





9. Four of the Java Sparrows with the Saffron Finch. 





10. On our return to our hotel, we always saw at least one of the cats  seen daily hanging out at the hotel lobby. 




11. I believe these birds are the Wandering Tattlers, they were seen on the beach during the sunrise.

  1. Great birds from Hawaii! Have a good weekend, wherever you have traveled to. I didn't have any critters this week, but if our lives go as planned, we'll be birding next week so I'll have some good ones.

  14. I am still enjoying your Kahui trip birds Eileen. It's good to see both of the tattlers for comparison. And those Cattle Egrets just get everywhere don't they? I'm loving that lizard display. Nature is simply amazing, wherever we go in the world. Thanks for the link up again and enjoy your weekend.

  16. Beautiful catch of birds and beach scenes; I especially liked the curved pond beach and the blowhole of the spouting horn park, which appears to be fun to watch. The Kauai Coffee Company looks like a fantastic place to explore and see the coffee trees because coffee plants aren't allowed to grow into trees here, maybe to minimize issues in picking the seeds. Enjoy the weekend

  19. Takes me back to happy days spent with Wandering Tattlers in California. It's a great reminder of the epic migrations of some shorebirds. There are so many introduced species on Hawaii as your pictures reveal.

    Aquelas garças brancas também se deixam ver por estes lados... ainda há pouco tempo estiveram alguns dias por estas paragens. No meu post mais recente, a primeira foto, mostra uma, em pequena dimensão... pois a foto foi tirada com alguma distância, da minha janela da cozinha!
