I saw this Mockingbird, high up in the tree, singing away while hiking at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. What a pretty photograph with the blue, blue sky in the background!
They are best known for mimicking the songs of other birds often loudly and in rapid succession. Thus they are called the Mockingbird.
Have you ever heard a Mockingbird? They are usually very chatty and let you know they are nearby.
Hemenway Landing in Eastham on Cape cod is a wonderful spot to launch your boat for a tour around Nauset Marsh or just to sit and soak up the beautiful views. You can even see Coast Guard Station across Nauset Marsh. There is always something to watch whether it is a Seagill searching for food or a clammer digging for his dinner at low tide.
I couldn’t decide if I liked the horizontal or vertical photograph better. What do you think?
It was a gorgeous, somewhat spring-like day here on Cape Cod so we decided to hike the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. The views are spectacular!
Phil took this photograph as we were finishing the Red maple Swamp Trail and heading out to the trail around the meadow. You can see Nauset Marsh and then Nauset Beach way out in the distance.
This was such a beautiful morning on Cape Cod Bay. We stopped and took a few photographs… the lighting was so pretty.

I love the Red-Bellied Woodpecker that hangs around our yard and eats our suet. He is just gorgeous! You can always tell where he is by distinctive call. It sounds like a double “chiv chiv.” You would know if you heard it!
Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
