Saturday’s Critters – In the Darkness of Night, and More


I’ve been putting the trailcam out at night. Most nights I don’t get anything but I got this cat one time. I think it is somebody’s pet. It doesn’t have that lean hungry look of a feral cat.

I’ve caught him a few times stalking birds near our feeders during the day.

And we had a bunny one evening. I hope they don’t have a nest in the yard as it is quite sad when our dogs find the nest.


I captured this house finch the other day. I am thinking the bird right next to it is a sparrow.


And a dove scavenging seeds on the ground. They are not as skittish as other birds. They are not too smart with their nesting sites.

And our Lizzy chilling out with us in the living room.

Peace for Ukraine!

    Every time I see your shots, I want a trail cam even more. Once I return “home” I’ll do more research and have a place to order and set one up.

    Hello, Alan
    Your trail cam is nice, capturing the critters visiting your yard. I hope the kitty is not a stray.
    Cute photo of the House Finch with a House Sparrow. Your Lizzy is a sweetie. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

    I’m thinking I need to video our yard at night and see what I see. I love all the critters in your post , especially the bunny, and Lizzie of course!

    Hello, :=) I have often thought how super it would be to have a trail cam, especially set up near nesting sights, but never got around to install one. Night life in your yard must be interesting, well, it is interesting when you see any creature wild or otherwise. I love seeing different species of birds eating peacefully together. You have a beautiful cat. Your photo of Lizzie is lovely.

    Oh my gosh yes, the nests doves make are just like a bunch of grass and pine needles thrown somewhere at random by a drunken bird. I can’t believe any of their eggs even survive and yet I read that they are the most prolific of any birds in the country. I have no idea what to think about that.
