Pileated Woodpecker

Pileated Woodpecker on 'crazy' snag. Dead trees sustain woodpeckers! They should be left standing in their full glory as they support a network of organisms!

This bird was making quite a row! Looking for his/her mate.

Snowy Reflection

Today was a beautiful (but very cold), sunny day. I walked around 5 miles to Pickles Marsh and back. Saw a troop of 12 kinglets feeding (on what?) in the road in Winter Wren Wood. This photo is of Chickadee Marsh from Lake Road.

Home in the snow

My house in the snow this morning during the latest wallop of winter


I am setting up this blog as a place to share photos and thoughts on life here on Denman Island. I hope others share this spot to share their views on the physical, biological and social fabric of this little island near the edge of BC. Let me know if you would like to share your images or experiences.
