  2. Wonderful, Cindy! I am on Vancouver Island (it’s my home!!) and happy to see you in these local parts πŸ™‚ Wonderful photo ~I hope the bird has a pretty voice as it sings too

    • Christy, I am so in love with this island and The Sunshine Coast. I wanted to move here when I retired, but my hubby was reticent. I just feel so comfortable here with the nature and wild ones, and their citizen protectors. I just learned that generations of Bartons (my father’s famiily) had settled all over Canada. I never knew this. Today was grizzlies, scores of them, river and sea otters, I could go on and on….

  3. I’m not so sure I like Canadian birdies very much… The Toronto Bluejays just came into Seattle and took 2 of 3 games, putting a damper on our playoff hopes ~ your photos, however, quite brilliant like always Cindy πŸ™‚

    • I was just in Seattle. I am still reeling from Pike Place Market. Fabulous and full of life, but oh so many tourists! It’s like Disneyland. I put off going there for years when it was less visited and this is my penance. Love all the volcanoes. Beautiful.

      • Summer at Pike Place Market can be miserable…in the fall/winter, nothing better πŸ™‚ My grandparents met at a coffee shop here, so I love it when there is a more blue-collar, working atmosphere there πŸ™‚

        • It was a Thursday mid September. Word has gotten out. The entire world loves Pikes Place Market for good reason. It feels very Latin American open market to me which I love, plus of course, we did go twice, to eat the seafood, which Seattle does like it should be done.

  4. This is a fuzzy shot where its feathers are all “fluffed up!” I like that it looks like it came from the local beauty shop and had a “blow dry!” πŸ˜€ Hugs to you, dear Cindy! ❀

  7. Goodness, what a complete joy to see and photograph. This little sweetheart must enjoy the temperate climate on the coast as I’ve not seen them in our hood. But I wish I did as she’s so beautiful. The beak looks more like a Budgie or parrot. It’s so different than most wild birds I see. Little poofy wonder. Was it chilly at the time? xk
