Black-Bellied Plover At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.

29 views

It was so cool to see this Black-bellied Plover at Boat Meadow Beach the other day. I took quite a few photographs as I couldn’t identify it then and there. When I got home I put it on my iBird PRO app and realized that it was a Black-bellied Plover in its winter coloring.

I did some research and learned ┬áthat many of them winter here on Cape Cod and are also seen during migration. I had never seen one there before so that was a first for me! Very cool, don’t you think?

Nauset Marsh From The Coast Guard Beach Overlook On Cape Cod.

One of the prettiest views of Nauset Marsh and Coast Guard Beach is from the overlook by the Coast Guard Beach parking lot. There are benches and a picnic table if the weather is nice.

In this photo, you can see Nauset Marsh off to the right and Coast Guard Beach to the left. Down the middle is Nauset Spit where the Atlantic Ocean empties into Nauset Marsh. The boats that are moored there look like little dots in the water.

Such a pretty overlook. Have you ever been there?
