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 mostly at my Facebook Page Island Rambles or my Instagram islandrambles.

Here is another pretty new bird, a Clay-colored sparrow.
There was one visiting a feeder out in Sidney. He looked somewhat like a Chipping but not really as the colors around his eyes are different. There is a lot of white around this ones eye compared to the Chipping with the dark streak. And the Chipping has a more rusty colored head.
He seems to be enjoying the seed in the feeders.
They usually are in the Great Plains but sometimes I guess they get mixed up and end up on our coast here.
Have a great week birders and bloggers. It is very busy here with rare birds showing up each week.
