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.

Birds of the Week

It has rained here for weeks so.....

there are no opportunities to get out and get good photos of birds. We have been doing interiors.

We did see a shorebird at Oak Bay.  Yellow Legs.

For The Bird d'Pot Sunday

For Macro Monday these are the birds at the museum.

For Ruby Tuesday

For Wild Bird Wednesday

For Good Fences Thursday
Some video and pictures from the archives as the weather is so bad I have not been able to get any photos.  I am going to take a blog holiday for a while after this.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
Today I am linking to:

  1. It's been an odd time lately for birding also...close by. The summer hurricane has displaced many species.

    Love ALL your photos Nora. Sending along my thanks to you for linking in with us at I'd Rather B Birdin'

  2. You must be so frustrated with the weather. Good to look back through your archives. Hope the week improves.

  3. We're getting some steady snow here but I've gone out in it anyway. I think I'd prefer rain. Some lovely photos, I really like the view down the bridge with the red railing and the top photo of the surf and birds and darkening sky.

  4. That eagle-- do they pause for a moment like that or did you just get a once in a million shot?

  5. It has been cold so I have stayed in. But this Saturday is our local Eaglefest and 2 of my students and their families will be attending as will one of last year's so I am planning on braving the cold for this event.

  6. All of my recent bird pics have come from the truck window. It has been cold! Love the birds, especially the eagle video.

  7. Love seeing the Eagles! Beautiful Osprey, too!

  8. I'm fortunate because I see birds from my window. Your photos are always excellent.

  9. Beautiful collection Nora. You remind me that I haven't had a single morning to spend at our Eagle nest.

  10. thanks for joining Gosia

  11. Thanks so much for these lovely comments. I will reply on each of your blogs as time permits. I appreciate your comments so much.
