Saturday's Critters # 513

 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!

This is a mish mash of photos and various dates in September. Some photos may look familiar many are of same birds and the same views but they are taken on different days. I am still a little behind sharing our outings and birdwatching in my neighborhood and in my yard.


1. Sept 5th, our walk on the NCR bike trail. It is a popular trail for bike riders, joggers and walkers like hubby and I.  Images are of the trail, the moon, cardinal flowers and an unknown bird, possibly a Red-eyed Vireo. Just a guess. 




In my yard, at this time I am still enjoying my Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. 





2. Sept 8th, photos are from our morning walk to our local lake. The water levels are getting lower, more mud than water and we are starting to see some Autumn colors. On this day I saw the continuing Solitary Sandpipers, a new sighting for the lake was a Wilson's Snipe, the Belted Kingfisher is always nice to see. 




3. I had to check with the local bird club members to verify this bird's id, most people said it was the Wilson's Snipe, I had a few people that said it was a Whimbrel and some a little far fetch said it was  Limpkin. (At this time a Limpkin was being seen at the C&O canal trail in Potomac Md). The Wilson's Snipe tend to blend in with the muddy surrounding, it has a dark head with whitish stripes, head is round and it has short legs. The bill is long and straight.  On my photo the bill is facing down which might make it look curved some? 






4. On Sept 9th, hubby and I drove around the lake to another fire road. We had to take another trail due to downed trees across our usual trail.  It was a longer walk total 3 miles round trip. I heard more birds than I could see and photograph. The Eastern Box Turtle is almost a rare sighting around here. The Pokeberries and the Devil's Walking Stick berries were plentiful providing the birds lots to eat. 





5.  Sept 10th, at our local lake and just a short walk from our home is my favorite spot for birdwatching lately. Below are the Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, Belted Kingfisher, Osprey, a view of the lake with the low water level and another shot of the Green Heron.





6. Sept 10th, on this day I found the Osprey sitting in a near by tree over the lake. 





7.  Sept 10th , the Great Blue Heron is always seen at our lake, the fishing must be good. 






8.  Due to the drought our lake water level is getting very low. 





9. I enjoy seeing the Green Herons at our local lake.  




10.  Sept 11th,  another day and another walk to our local lake.  The Great Blue Herons and Green Herons are constant visitors.  The Bald Eagle flew over a few times. 




11.  Sept 11th continued, unknown bird seen at the beginning of the fire road, the lake and lots of turtles lined up on a log. Canada Geese hanging out on the lake shore, a Double Crested Cormorant and more turtles. 




12. Sept 14th, I have been noticing the warblers are showing up in my yard. Below are the male and female Cape May Warblers. They do love the berries on the Devil's Walking Stick. 




13. Sept 14th, hubby and I took our walk on another section of the NCR trail. I found the Belted Kingfisher and a male Downy Woodpecker.





Still behind I am making some headway sharing our walks and bird sightings.  I hope you enjoyed the birds, turtles and photos.

  1. Hi Eileen, I sure enjoyed Saturday’s Critters #513. I’m impressed with the variety of critters, as is often the case with your posts. And it’s so nice to spend a few minutes enjoying nature and getting away from the news of the week. Love the way you put together the collages. The very first image makes a great start with the view of the trail, the moon, the flowers, and (possibly) the Red-eyed Vireo. I enjoy the shots along the trail, even without critters. 😊 Thanks for sharing and hosting. Wishing you and yours a fine weekend. John

    1. Dear Eileen,
      I've now had time to read your post and look closely at all the photos. You saw lots of birds again. I hope the waterfowl still find enough food despite the low water level. I particularly like the sighting of the rare Eastern Box Turtle, the Belted Kingfisher and the fact that the hummingbirds still visit you! The photo of the moon is awesome!
      Happy weekend,
      hugs, Traude

    Yes, enjoyed them all as you took us along with you again! As to the mystery bird, my first thought even before reading your paragraph on it was "Whimbrel"... if YAM's gut reaction is any help at all?! YAM xx

      I am still not sure about the bird, whether it is a Whimbrel or Snipe. The Whimbrel would be way off course, but the birds have been notice to get "lost". Take care, have a wonderful weekend.

  16. back in 2005 when i got my first Rebel DSLR, Diane and I went out every week end to places like this one. the header is drawing me in. I love spots like this and its much like our Emerson Point Preserve. all your bird shots with the paths and trees reminds me that I told Diane, a birder like you are, that i never see birds. she never saw the trees, the stumps, the moss that i was taking. in this post my eyes go straight past the birds to the backgrounds, your focus is the birds. she taught me to look for the birds by saying, the reason you don't see them is you never stop talking or ever stand still. you have to be quiet and still to see them. all that popped in my head with all these beautful photos

    1. Thank you Sandra, for your comment and your visit.
      As a birder, I was told I should stay quiet and just stop in one area and listen for the birds. Then you will notice them moving around you. Taking bird photos is hard, they are usually always moving around.

  23. I like to go through your photos at the bottom of the screen to sharpen my ID skills before reading the narrative, especially since I have not visited any wetlands over the past two years. Like you, I first thought the snipe had a curved bill, but it shape and plumage pattern were not consistent with any other species. I did not go to the books, rather checked your report and do agree.

  60. You have so many wonderful birds ! Green Herons are favorites of mine (maybe the ones we see in Florida are the same ones you see before the fly south!).....

  61. Imagens absolutamente maravilhosas dos seus vários passeios, Eileen! E fiquei particularmente encantada com a foto dos beija-flores! É uma pequena ave, que nunca pude apreciar de perto, e que me fascina, dada a velocidade e delicadeza dos seus movimentos...
    Grata por mais uma notável série de imagens, de grande beleza!
