Saturday Critters ~ 170 ~

I have been home a bit the last few weeks because of the weather and the temperatures.
I never mind, I only have about a zillion things to keep me busy.
The yard birds also entertain me when I don't get out.
Here are a few of my favorites from this week.

Chickadee

Male House Finch

Titmouse

Female Cardinal

Yellow-Rumped Warbler

And this, my Flicker, who is the most difficult to photograph.

And although it feels like Winter outdoors, it sounds like Spring.

  3. Fantastic! I believe you must have them trained at this point. ;-) The Flicker is beautiful!

  4. The Flicker may be the most difficult but also the most rewarding.

  14. In my opinion, ALL your bird species today are 'challenging to photograph'!! But, my goodness what glorious image you've captured. So perfect in every way possible.

    Thanks so much for your participation this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'! I never stop enjoying your birding photos.

  15. Wow. They are all incredible, like scanning a nature site, but the last one, your flicker, oh my goodness what a sweet pea!

  16. Hello, Debbie! You are lucky to see all these birds posing for you and your camera. I love the Flicker shot. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

  17. You have great yardbirds -- and the Flicker shot is perfect (and I know how hard they are to get). Thanks for visiting me on my little blog and no need to thank me for leaving comments here. I do keep my blog as a memory 'diary' (more and more important the older I get), but I also really enjoy visiting others and I love the connections we bloggers make through comments. I love knowing a little bit about what its' like to live on (for instance) the Jersey Shore .... and all the different parts of the country and other countries too -- things I never ever would have learned without blogging.

  20. Nice shots. I love the sounds of spring, though I couldn't hear them above the wind today. I have so many things to keep me busy, sometimes it's almost paralyzing--not knowing where to start.
