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.

Wow Baby Owls Wow

wanna see some baby w...owls???

(I have not gone crazy yet, although I think may have gone owl crazy, we are at the letter "w" for the ABC Linky)

Wonderful w...owls!

These are the adult owls. Whoot Whoot.

So happy that I met an old friend who loves owls like I do! Now I am in owl heaven.

Here are some baby owl photos.

He is waving "bye bye". I hope you are having a happy week.

  1. Those are so charming. I've never heard of "Wowls" before, though I used to work with a young boy who insisted on calling them "Howls" which is not a bad name for our Tawny Owls considering the noise they make.

  2. Hello, love the all the owls. Great series of photos. Happy Monday and have a great new week.

  3. Aren't they wonderful creatures? Our barred owls chose not to nest here this year. I miss them!

  4. Hi Nora, The owls are wonderful! I rarely get to see them where I live. Such gorgeous pix. It's good to be in touch with you again. Thanks for popping by to say hi and leaving your kind comments. Hugs

  5. Awwww! So lovely.

  6. Wow indeed!! Your owls are Owlsome.

  7. Even people who are especially drawn to birds are entranced by owls, and little baby owls reinforce that attraction sevenfold, Have a great day, Nora

  8. Oh my gosh!! This post & your photos are absolutely FABULOUS!! I too love owls.

    Thanks so much for linking in this week...truly a treasured post!

  9. These pictures are adorable ! I love owls, they have the same eyes as my cat Rosie which I call my little owl when she makes her big eyes !

  10. Your owls are wonderful.

  11. Super selection of gorgeous Owls.

  12. Oooh, the baby owls are cute, cute, cute. I like that's waving his yellow foot at you. :-)

  13. Oh what a great post Nora..I don't have any owl photos. Barn owls are very rare in our area even now due to the use of rodent poisons for decades. But I do hear a great horned during the winter. Enjoyed the videos too... What a nature archive you have...Michelle

  14. Wow! Love the owl photos ~ especially the babies!

    Happy Midweek to you,

  18. Loved these. Owls are so cool and those baby owls were just adorable.

  19. W ...owl is right! I am told there are owls in our 'neighborhood', but I have yet to see them. So I will (have to) be satisfied with your glorious shots. I especially like that fluffy little young'un.

  20. So many nice comments today. Thanks to each of you. I love them.
