Saturday's Critters #16

Saturday's Critters #15


Hello blogging friends,  time for Saturday's Critter party.  Link up your post and have some fun seeing all the different critters..   It is fun to visit with some new bloggers and some old blogging friends.  Either way, I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys all the critters.



These photos are from Monday March 17, St. Patricks Day.. I was home from work because of another snowstorm..


The snow brings many birds to my yard and feeders.. On this day, I saw a lot of Cardinals, WT Sparrow, Juncos, House Finches, my pretty Pine Warbler and a FOY Fox Sparrow seen in the first shot.


On the feeder are two female House finches and one pretty male House Finch.. The male Cardinal is eating off of the deck railing.


The red Cardinals really stand out in the white snow..I hope you enjoy my Cardinals...




Thank you for linking up to the critter party. I appreciate the visits, comments and the support of my blogging friends..

To see more beautiful birds and cute critters

Also please visit:  I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host: Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin. Also, sharing with Camera Critters. Thanks to Misty for hosting.

 Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.

Of course I loved your cardinals. Actually, I love the house finches too. They were everywhere back home. Don't see many where I live under tall oaks. They like blue sky above them. Have a great weekend.

...that top photo is so clear, it's my favorite today.

I only wish we had Cardinals here at altitude - Stellar Jays are as colorful as we get! I think the birds know where the best buffet is.

I love the cardinals in the winter because the white snow and the green of the evergreens makes them stand out. You have a lot of red in these pictues ... very beautiful.

Great photos, cardinals are a delightful treat with their bright colouring, they are very brave to be out in the snow foraging for food.

So many snow days this winter!
