This morning as John and I ate oatmeal and toast and
 drank coffee outside, this little fellow visited. I love being so close to nature.

Northern Flicker spotted at Surfside RV Resort, Parksville, B.C., Canada.
Do you have a favorite bird?


  1. That is a beautiful bird! My favorite bird is the plain ole Robin. The reason? My dad and I had an annual contest late January on.... to see who could spot the first Robin. He usually won. Now, I play the game for both of us.

  2. Ah! The small pleasures that make life beautiful!

  3. Hey Levonne! Nice picture :) We are finally going to go fulltime on 10/1! After heading to South Dakota, then making our way back here for a reunion of sorts in South Carolina, we'll be in CA for Christmas. We have applied to work at one of the Monterey County parks (maybe Manzanita!) We'll be available Jan. 2013, so we're excited!

    1. That's fabulous! Can't wait to have lunch with ya!

  4. Thought about you yesterday when Craig and I walked at the beach. Even though we didn't walk as often as I would have liked, I miss our treks. Girl time is good.

  5. glad you are enjoying your time on Vancouver Island!..birds?..not really into birding as much as some are..but I do like the little chickadees!..they are my fave!

  6. What a beautiful bird - I have no idea what it is but it has lovely markings.

  7. One of my favorite things is sitting outside in the morning with my coffee watching the birds. Great photo!


I always love to hear your thoughts.
