Saturday's Critters #18

Saturday's Critters #18

I hope everyone has had a great week! After starting the week with bad weather, we are finally warming up. I am looking forward to a warm sunny weekend..We are kind of slow here to start blooming, I hope to see some of my flowers soon..

 Ok, 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 catch up with some old blogging friends.  Either way, I hope everyone enjoys the critters.



 The week started with some snow..after a rainy weekend


My cute Pine Warbler is back and is a regular visitor to the suet..


A distant relative of Bubba is saying PLEASE, PLEASE bring out some more peanuts.



Another regular visitor to my suet is the male Downy Woodpecker, the male has the red spot on his head..

I hope you enjoy my birds and critter. I am looking forward to seeing your critters.

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

Lovely photos, Eileen, Bubba must have sent this one over to you. I haven't done a critter link for a while, life a bit stressed lately, but 2 days now, going reasonably with less pain. Hugh is hoping it will continue this way. Cheers, Jean.,

We never have had any luck with suet, even when we add peanut butter to entice. Your birds look like they love it! Beautiful shots!

I tried the suet once again and a herd of sparrows finished it off in two days..arghhh.
Love your photos today- especially that first one in the snow...but hope you are getting warmer weather now.

The snow is really coming down in the first photo! Wonderful shot of the warbler! Never had any of any species at the feeders.

The cardinal is saying ,"Let me in out of the snow."

We had a cool but sunny day here today, so I hope this weather is working its way toward you and you won't have to get snow/rain in any more pictures of your Saturday Critters.

Linda said...

Love the first picture! And the squirrel looks cute and friendly.

Sandy Carlson said...

These are fantastic. And your banner is beautiful!

HansHB said...

Great photos!

Phil Slade said...

Looks like the Pine Warbler is getting some Spring colour there Eileen. Maybe as a warbler he should be eating pesky insects rather than raiding your feeders?

It's brilliant that you host this get together each week.So many participants now - thank you.

rainfield61 said...

Helma said...
