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.

Today is the letter "T" for the Trumpeter Swans. The Trumpeter Swan is the largest of North America's native birds. It nests in the far north wetlands of Alaska. This is not a Sad Swan Song story as the Trumpeter is a success story.

Today it is the Snow Bunting! This is a bird from the high Arctic and for the snow and cold. It has come here to have a holiday. This is a lovely little bird, mostly white like the snow for camouflage. It is our little snowflake. I just love this little friendly bird.

I am just going to sprinkle some photos I like around in here so as not to be too boring. That is a Red-breasted Sapsucker on the very top and this is what we used to call a Rufous-sided Towhee above.

I have a lot of questions on the subject of nature. I could go on forever with my questions as I am so fascinated with nature and all her wonders. Why is the hummingbird so small yet so smart?
Why are baby hawks so cute and we never get to see them at this stage?
