Looking to hire someone to do my trailer wiring.

Forbes Hall ~ Celine Valestrand

As I anticipated the latest annual Book and Bake Sale fundraiser for the library, I thought back to August 2013.  That was my first Book and Bake, and the day I became the island volunteer librarian. I was amazed at how smoothly the sale went.  Each year the volunteers continue to make it happen.  

Forbes Hall is now a large part of my world.  I spend a lot of time in the library/Hunter Room; have enjoyed exercise classes, Soup's On, and many other events at the Hall.  There are so many occasions to meet with islanders.  The Hall is truly a meeting place for the island residents and visitors.  I am looking forward to a beautiful new building.

Noisy Shield-Back Katydid

Hello ~

My name is Jennifer Heron and I'm writing a national status report for the Noisy Shield-back Katydid. This insect looks like a grasshopper/cricket and you'll probably notice it's loud song before you see the katydid. The males call during the day and start with a chirp chirp and then builds to a series of short rasping chirps; starting with a few notes per second but quickly increases the speed to a rapid flutter which is kept up for a long period.

There is a very old record (before 1920) of the Katydid on Thetis Island, and because the habitat on the island is not as urban/agricultural impacted as other areas on southeastern Vancouver Island, I'm hoping there may be a chance someone could have heard the species. It's unlike a cicada though, which is a very loud and constant bzzzzzzz in the tree tops.

Any information is most welcome, or advice from someone keen on iNaturalist or looking for insects/plants.

Thanks for your time,

Jennifer Heron

Cockerel Needs a Home

One very handsome 3 month old grey polish cockerel with frizzle genetics (although he's not frizzle) who has just found his voice.  

We're coming from the city on Sunday and can't have him here.  

Text for picture.  

If there are no takers we'll deal with him, but thought I would offer to save his life.
