Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Hi ...thanks so much for your encouragement of my photos...EG WOW and Mary asked how I got so close...this hawk was at a Raptor Centre and I do have a long lens...he is not one of our local hawks and is mostly found on the prairie I think.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Excellent photographs of this magnificent bird.

Regards and best wishes

Wonderful shots of a great bird. I miss them since moving to Florida from New Mexico, where one flew right past our big front window-- it looked as massive as an eagle!
