A Fresh Mussel Feast For this Hungry Seagull On The National Seashore On Cape Cod


I saw this seagull hovering above the rocks on the National Seashore on Cape Cod as it let the bundle of mussels fall and crack open. How ingenious!

Of course, another Seagull was waiting nearby to share in the delicacy. But no, this one was not to be shared! Ha!

Nauset Beach In Orleans On Cape Cod Was Beautiful After The Snow!


Nauset Beach, part of the National Seashore,  in Orleans on Cape Cod was gorgeous after the snow last week. It was blustery and cold and only one person was brave enough to walk along the shore.

Pretty, don’t you think?

Beautiful Northern Flicker On Our Bird Feeder On Cape Cod


This was such a pretty photograph of the Northern Flicker in our backyard. You can see all of his colors: his spotted chest with the black semicircle, the black patch near his beak, the red spot on the back of his head and a very distinct yellow under his tail which is very prevalent when he flies.

Such a gorgeous bird… Have you ever seen a Northern Flicker? I bet you have heard one!

The Tides Are Really High Here On Cape Cod


We were so surprised to see all of the white caps and extremely high tides on Cape Cod Bay. You can hardly see the beach in this photograph at Boat Meadow on Cape Cod with the tides so high.

Wow! We’ve had quite a few days of extreme weather from the high tides to high  winds and frigid temperatures to all of the snow! I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Forecasters are predicting another big winter storm tomorrow into Wednesday! Gotta love this New England weather!!

Lots Of Snow Here On Cape Cod!


Well, we got about a foot of snow Friday into Saturday! And the temperatures were in the teens with winds of about 45 mph! Unbelievable!

So we went to the gym in the morning and then hunkered in for the rest of the day! Good day for a fire in the fireplace, a good book or to catch up on my Blog! 🙂 and a cup of hot chocolate!

Rumor has it that we are supposed to get another whopper of a storm on Tuesday. We’re keeping our fingers crossed! It’s supposed to be almost spring!

We’ve  had a lot of birds at our bird feeders in this cold weather. We counted over 40 birds at one point yesterday: Lots of Bluebirds, Goldfinches, House Finches, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Nuthatches, Juncos, Wrens, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, Cardinals and Downy Woodpeckers. It has been such a treat to watch them all day!
