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.

Lovely Island Life for L


I am LATE...for all the weekly memes again.  It is "L" week at ABC so here are some Local "L" photos.  Hope you Like them.  These two shots are from Witty's Lagoon this week. It was a hot, hot weekend in the sun here in my Lovely Island Life.





This little Chestnut-backed chickadee was at Swan Lake and so was the little Marsh wren and the Cormorant below.




This is the first little Rufous Hummingbird I have seen this year.


This is the lonely little owl that has branched out from his flower box nest.


Below is a shot of all the little owlets before they branched out to the world.


Below is a shot of a Pintail duck at Esquimalt Lagoon.


Lovely Lilies at Butchart Gardens.


The baby lambs learn to come to the gate.



I hope all the bloggers have a lovely week and I look forward to seeing your blogs this week on ABC Meme, the birdy memes and all the other memes.

 Thank you to these memes for allowing bloggers to share their story.  I may not remember to enter them all but I still list them for others and as this is the quick way for me to do it.

Beautiful images Nora. I especially enjoyed the rufous hummingbird. We're supposed to have them here in my area, but I've never had the privilege of spotting one. So, your photo was greatly appreciated. The owl is beautiful isn't it? Thanks for linking up this week at the Bird D'Pot, it's always a great addition to the wonderful birds in our world!!

We have chickadees and wrens, but different species. I've never seen either of these. Love the owl photo, too! The hummingbird is absolutely fantastic!

These are wonderful shots of your lovely island life! I saw a great horned owl the other day - yes, DAY! I went back the next day with my camera, but he'd left. :(
