I thought this was a cool photograph of the very unique channel markers at Rock Harbor. They look like trees guiding the boats into the harbor or out to Cape Cod Bay.
Such a tranquil, simple photograph. What do you think?
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?
This Catbird was singing away, high in the tree at Fort Hill in Eastham. I love this time of year when it seems like everything is coming awake from the wildflowers and plants to the birds and the animals.
Cute little guy, don’t you think? He looks like he is ready to take off!
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?
This is the first of many, hopefully, Painted Lady butterflies that we will see here on Cape Cod this summer. They are usually very abundant here on Cape Cod.
Beautiful coloring, don’t you think?
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!
