Todays Hummingbird images are dedicated to the fine folks at Michell Valley Plants! For the past few years they have provided all my bird friendly plants and flowers , and organic fertilizers to make them flourish.
Thank you ever so much for your help establishing my gardens...
The birds just think you are awesome too!!!
I hear there is currently a big plant sale at Michell Valley Plants, so head down for some Fall bargains before they close for the season.
Look for the big plant display behind Michell's Market on Island View Road and #17 Hwy.
I saw 100's of Swallows today
This bird came close enough for me to get a few photos...
Sharp Shinned Hawk
Muscovy Ducks ... Originally wild stock came from Central and South America and are now domestically raised all over the planet. Large birds noted for their tasty eggs which are superb to eat or used in gourmet baked goods!
Fantastic, fresh and delicious free range Duck and Chicken eggs can be found all year long at Happy Chicken Farm 1474 Wain Road in N Saanich ...
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
