Historical and contemporary aspects of my beautiful island home. The landscape, the flora and fauna and my family will be among the treasures found in in these pages.

The Flicker is the largest woodpecker in Newfoundland and is certainly my favorite visitor to the feeder. It is often quite noisy and commonly perches on a high dead tree druming for insects. This cautious bird will fly away as soon as I step into the garden but I had no problem taking his protrait from the kitchen window.
