Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Welcome to my blog world. This is a photo blog, poetry and short story blog about my life on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. 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. I am also at my Facebook Page Island Rambles or Islandrambles at YouTube.

Pretty Birds

Just my pretty birds in my yard today.  My Flicker comes to visit me.  He brings a friend sometimes.  He is getting braver and sleeps in this tree. He looks at my camera but does not leave now.  Usually announces his arrival with a piercing call for everyone to hear.  His wings make a lovely noise.
He likes the fat and peanuts.

Oyster River and Owls

I am so sorry for my absence from blogging as I took most of October off to rest and we did travel to the Oyster River a few times.  I will include below some photos of the sky at the mouth of the Oyster River where we camped near Campbell River, B.C.
