Fall Colors and Critters

My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #137.

I'm late with my posts this week, so this one is also for:

Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #151

Anni's I'd Rather B Birdin'

and Carmi's Thematic Photographic 387 - Where I Shop

This hotel is next to Berkeley Springs State Park.

These minnows live in Warm Springs Run, the creek under that bridge.

George Washington's bath tub:

I don't shop in many stores in Berkeley Springs, but this is one I visit often.

How about a bird and a fence? This is one of 'our' porch birds, a Downy Woodpecker.

A White-breasted Nuthatch:

Race for the seeds:

Fall colors from Cacapon Mountain and Lake Siri:

Beautiful Autumn color!

Nice shots! I am not familiar with Lake Siri. Google says it is in Coolfont Resort. I've have to check it out. We went to Warden Lake this week (near Wardensville) for the first time and I got some nice pictures.

That bathtub doesn't look all that comfortable. I sure hope he got a better one as President.

That looks an interesting shop! Looked at it closely and decided "hardware" means the same in American/Canadian English as it does in the UK! (You can never be sure!!)

Love your downy woodpecker. We have had a rare bird - a Lesser spotted woodpecker, coming to our garden feeder for the last three months, though he has missed a day or two this week. He is about the size of a smallish starling and very, very rarely seen in gardens. But we have BIG trouble with squirrels and jackdaws now - they eat everything, hanging onto the feeders and keeping the smaller birds away.

Hello, it is nice to see the minnows in the clear stream. I love all your feeder birds, I miss feeding my yard birds. Theda is happy going on a walk. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Loved the birds naturally....you get a great variety of species!!
And those minnows...wow, what terrific numbers and the image is so clear!
Your autumn colors are spectacular.

Your bird photos are outstanding!!!
Thank you for stopping by to add your link to this post for us birders this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always greatly appreciated.

You're having a lovely autumn, colourful and sunny.

G.W. "bathed" here. That's a new one.

P.S: The above took several tries, & I had to prove I wasn't a robot.
