Hooded Merganser for Saturday Critters

The Hooded Mergansers are back but I have only seen the males so far!.I have seen them for two days now, so it should be no problem finding them again this morning. I don’t think I have ever taken a picture of one taking off in flight before until Thursday of this week (shown below). This one probably took off as it looked at me sitting narby with my camera pointed at it!

I am linking today to Eileen’s
Have a great day everyone.! I hope to spend part of my day out looking for ducks as the rivers are starting to break up a bit more now.

Family Cats for Saturday Critters

.My daughter has two Maine Coon cats and they are both big gorgeous animals with wonderful, gentle manners.  If anyone is familiar with Maine, you will find the cat's name interesting if you know
some Maine place names.  Lubec is the orange cat and Wiscasset is the other one.

The black cat is our cat. Actually he belonged to our son's family but when they had a new baby  the cat was given to us as it loved jumping in the baby's crib too often.   Our cat's name is "Shakey".
When Shakey arrived in his new home as a kitten, he was quite nervous and was shaking all over, so he became known as" Shakey cat". Shakey is now about 16 years old and is rather standoffish and is not a lapcat, but we love him as he is now ours.

Have a great weekend everyone, it is now March so despite a big storm moving in for the weekend, we can anticipate spring coming along later this month!
