Our motion detector lights went on last night and there were two beautiful Whitetail deer meandering through our yard. Such a sight to see wildlife so close by.
Then, this morning about 7:30 AM Phil yelled, “Come see this!” There in the backyard were the 2 Whitetail deer munching from our bird feeders, one at each feeder. At first we thought, “How cute.” After about 10 minutes of watching them inhale about 5″ of the bird seed out of each feeder we thought “This is cute, but we are going to go broke as those are shelled sunflower seeds they are inhaling!”
Priceless, don’t you think?
The weather is hopefully getting warmer and we’ll be able to start packing a picnic and enjoy the gorgeous Cape Cod views! This is one of our favorite places for a picnic… or to read a book… or just to sit and relax and enjoy the spectacular, ever changing views! (Click for another photo!)
The first photograph is of the benches facing the water while the second photograph is looking from the beach back to the benches.
It doesn’t get much better!
I love to see the Buffleheads swimming about in the winter here on Cape Cod. They are so distinct with their black and white coloring. I’ve seen many of them at Boat Meadow Creek and at Rock Harbor. They are pretty skittish if they see you or hear you, so it is easier to take a photograph at Rock Harbor where they are further away and there’s some noise about.
This male was flapping his wings as the 2 females swam nearby. There is such a difference between the males and females.
Have you ever seen a Bufflehead? Cool-looking, don’t you think?
It was a gorgeous day for a nice hike at Fort Hill. It was sunny with temps in the 40s but little wind. We had just hiked up to the overlook when this seagull looked as if it was posing on the map of the National Seashore with Nauset Marsh and then Coast Guard Station way in the background.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
The slips are still empty at Wellfleet Harbor but not for long as the spring like weather is slowly returning. I really liked this photograph of all of the empty slips with the dock in the background and the blue sky.
What do you think?
This Song Sparrow was singing away high up in the tree as if he is welcoming spring and the warmer weather, hopefully to come soon. 🙂
We’ve had several Song Sparrows at our feeders the past few weeks. It is such a joy to wake up to their beautiful song outside our bedroom window.
Have you heard the Song Sparrow yet this spring?
