Recently, while shooting a lifestyle video for one of our listings in Felida, we had the camera overlooking a spot on the trail. It was a fortuitous spot to choose too. At first, we didn't notice the Great Blue Heron standing on the bank. Nature has ensured these wading birds easily blend in with the habitat along waterways - where they frequently dine.  In addition to the benefit of natural camouflage, they are also able to stand motionless for extended periods of time, waiting patiently for prey to venture near. What a wonderful surprise to see this delightful creature make a move. Although, we weren't treated to its company for long - apparently this hunting bird had places to go.  A moment in nature always brings us unexpected gifts.    Featured photo - Courtesy of the Washington De...

Views Homes in Felida, WAFelida is a town in Clark County, WA that lies northwest of downtown Vancouver along the Columbia River.  It's name has an interesting history. Once a quiet farming community, with older homes on large lots and acreage, it is evolving as a bustling community with many new subdivisions.  Most new houses these days are on smaller lots due to environmental, zoning, and economic considerations, but a few exceptions can be found.  Many of the homes in Felida feature views of Vancouver Lake,The Columbia River, Salmon Creek, or peaceful territorial vistas.  Here is a Market Report for  ViewHomes™ in Felida: To view the full ViewHome™ Market Report, go to our web site.
