Time For Biking On Cape Cod!


Biking on Cape Cod is one of my all-time favorite things to do! I love to get up early and be on my bike by 6:00… then I have the road and all the wildlife and birds to myself! It doesn’t get much better!

So glad that the warmer weather is here, hopefully to stay! I took this photograph at Rock Harbor which is along my favorite route!

Have you gotten your bike out yet?

Pretty Yellow Wildflower On Cape Cod.


I’ve seen this small, yellow wildflower on the side of the roads and also by the parking lot at Coast Guard Beach, but have been unable to identify it. The flowers are about 1/2 inch and the plant is about a foot high.

Does anyone know what kind of wildflower this is?

Brilliant Summer Tanager In Our Yard On Cape Cod!


It was such a treat to see this beautiful Summer Tanager at our bird feeder the other morning. We’ve only seen one in our yard a couple of years ago and it then only stayed for a few minutes. This Summer Tanager stayed for three days.

I wonder where he goes for the rest of the summer? Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?

Many thanks to Stephanie, Executive Director at Wild Care, for correctly identifying this as a Summer Tanager. Thank you, Stephanie!
