Saturday Critters ~ 223 ~

The bird feeders have been very busy these days...
I would say things are back to normal since the hawk visited.
We have not seen the hawk in weeks and I think the birds feel safe again,
happy again, although I think they could have lived without this last snow storm.

Thursday was a busy morning at the window, 
I didn't get much "work" done but I did get some really nice pictures.

The first three are of three different Chickadees...

I like this one as you can see the snow coming down...
 poor Chickadee getting pummeled with snow.

And this one as it shows a little bit of Spring and a big bit of Winter.

These next two are of my Male Downey Woodpecker...

This Mockingbird is the first one I have seen this year...

not camera shy at all.


I'm sure the Robins know they came back too soon.

Yellow Rumped Warbler

Blue Jay

Male Cardinal

These were all taken Thursday March 22nd, I think we had about 18" of snow.

Sharing today with


  1. Wow, Debbie! Your birds in the snow look beautiful. I enjoyed everyone of your photos, it would be hard to pick a favorite.
    I hope the snow is melting, we have a nice sunny day today. Thank you for linking and sharing your post. I also appreciate your visit and comment. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. I will never have such a view from the window. Cute birds, I love robins, and admire cardinals. Greetings.

  3. Superb photos of all the birds but I LOVE those of the mockingbird & the American Robin! It is like a giant compared to our wee robins!

  4. Hello Debbie!:) Exquisite images of ALL the birds. Wow! They need to be in a published book.:)

  5. Very beautiful and sharp close-ups.
    My favourite is perhaps the blue jay...

  6. You should submit your photos to Birds & Bloom magazine. I have a friend that does and is always having one of her photos published.

  7. A foot and a half of snow, oh my gosh! I hope it melts soon. Your photos of birds are gorgeous, Debbie, I agree with everyone else who said they should be in a book or magazine!

  8. We have some yellow rumped warblers, I am so glad you got that shot, as I have watched them but I couldn't figure out what they were. Your photos today are magnificent Debbie.Much better than any bird book I have ever seen. I really enjoyed seeing them all so close up. I wish you could come here and take pictures. Then you could help me identify them. Just lovely today.

  9. Oh these are all such great photos! We love seeing the little woodpeckers here too and looks like Mr. Robin needs to come back to Florida! Enjoy your weekend!

  10. Beautiful pictures. I do love how the falling snow shows up in some of the pictures.Well done and the work will be there another day, while the birds may not be.

  11. Wow, how many beautiful birds, all the photos are amazing but the Robin's close-up and the last one are spectacular.

  12. Your photos are absolutely stunning! Wow, just gorgeous! Lovely birds...especially loved that chickadee!

  13. I LOVE SEEING ALL YOUR BIRDS, Debbie! Y'all have a bigger variety than I have coming yet. Your photos are stunning, they really are. Love the bluejay best and wow, that beautiful robin in the snow! Hope you have a real nice Sunday!

  14. Fantastic photos! You certainly had lots of company! Glad they're back!

  15. great collection...I love chickadees, and titmouse ... I must go tend the feeders.

  16. So enjoyed your beautiful pictures, especially with the snow, just fabulous. Greg has named our woodpecker Bob, they way he moves when he eats from the suet :) We have 3 different kinds of big black birds that knock them away, which makes me sad but Greg says all birds get hungry we can't just feed the pretty small ones.

  17. Great series of images. Birds and snow always make an interesting photographic combination.

  18. Well, I am glad you abandoned your work and focused on these photos - brilliant, each and every one. I have a real soft spot in my heart for the Titmouse ...

  19. Yep, this makes my morning so much brighter!

  20. Breathtakingly brilliant selection of photographs.
    I've scrolled up an down quite a few times.
    Simply stunning, and the fact that they are in the snow somehow adds to the beauty.

    All the best Jan

  21. Oh my these are fantastic shots. I loved them all but the brightness of the colors of the Robin, Blue Jay and Cardinal are stunning. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos. Hugs~
