I have walked by this structure  at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary so many times in the past and never really paid any attention to it. Until the other day…

It is a condo of different types of bird houses! How fun! It will be fun to see what kinds of birds “rent” their space here.

Very cool, don’t you think?

 

Lots Of Fiddler Crabs At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod

If you walk out to the beach at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary at low tide you can see thousands and thousands of Fiddler Crabs scurrying about the mudflats and into their little holes in the mud. They are everywhere!

You can see the vast mudflats in the second photograph. They seem to go on forever.

Have you ever seen a Fiddler Crab? You can tell the males by their exceptionally large claw which is shaped like a fiddle, thus the name “Fiddler Crab.”
