Critters, January 9, 2016

Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 1, 2015
I was looking at my photos to see what caught my attention at this time last year and found this Cardinal. He was looking at me as intently as I was looking at him!

Red-Tailed Hawk, Lee County, Mississippi, January 7, 2016

And from January this year - a Red-Tailed Hawk. Even though I was quite a distance away, pushing my zoom to the limit, I think this hawk saw me, too.

And since it is Saturday...
Tennessee River at Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, December 7, 2015 get another Great Blue Heron photo!
The water is so high, the Herons are the only ones that can use the pedestrian walkway beside the river. Thankfully, the actual river bank is still several feet higher than the water at this point.

Hope you have a beautiful week-end!

  1. Good morning, great collection of birds. I love the pretty male Cardinal and the heron. The hawk is an awesome sighting and capture. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Nice variety of birds. I always love cardinals but in the wild with the point and shoot that I carry when running they are devilishly hard to photograph.

  3. Lovely photos of the birds ~ hard to choose a favorite ~ but do love the cardinal.

    Wishing you a fun weekend, ^_^

  4. Great shots! The cardinal is just beautiful.

  5. Those hawks don't miss anything. I'm impressed you got that great shot!

  6. I'm always amazed by how different a heron looks when standing and flying.

  7. The colour of the cardinals never ceases to amaze me - I got rather over excited the first time I saw one!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  8. Lovely heron... he looks proud!

  9. A lovely trio Lea. The cardinal really stands out.

    As I have just changed over to my new blog, I thought I would sign off with my new addy to make it easier for my blogging friends. Have a very happy Sunday :)

  10. There is something so very special with birds of color among the winter landscape. You've shared some gorgeous images this weekend, and I thank you for adding this post for us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

  11. Love that cardinal! We don't have them out here, and I miss seeing them.

  12. so crisp and clear loved these !!

  13. Hola, Mr. Cardinal! Our backyard is full of them, although I can't get any pics as sharp as your.

  14. Awesome shots -- I esp. like the top two. :-)
