Colorful Ruddy Turnstone At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod.

If you haven’t been to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary at low tide, put it on your list. You can walk all the way out to the beach and you never know what you  will see and you’re never disappointed!

I saw this Ruddy Turnstone, and many more, the other day. There were so many on the outer beach scurrying about, it was hard to count.

I love his very distinctive coloring. What do you think?

The Piping Plovers Are Nesting on Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day so we took a walk down Coast Guard Beach. It was glorious… one of the Top 10 days!

We got part way down the beach and there were some new signs that said, “Nesting Nervous Birds” and  “Area Closed.” We were surprised as the area was not closed a few days ago. We stopped and looked around getting ready to turn back.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw a Piping Plover in the distance. Something else was scurrying  by the water. My camera has an awesome zoom so I was able to take a few photographs of the family of Piping Plovers from afar.

I had never seen a Piping Plover chick before. They were so cute and so tiny. What an experience…

The benches are still empty but the weather is getting warmer and it’s almost time for summer on Cape Cod! I took this early morning photograph at Boat Meadow beach on Cape Cod Bay. Pretty soon someone will be enjoying that gorgeous view from those benches.

Inviting, don’t you think?

 

The Willetts Were Noisy At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

We have seen so many Willetts this summer, as they are very noisy and let you know they are around. They sound like they are singing “pill-will-willett.” It is a very distinct call. We saw these 2 Willetts  on Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore,  last weekend and many more flying around.

I thought it was pretty cool that I got two of them in one frame. Have you seen or heard any Willets yet this summer?

Memorial Day weekend has been just spectacular with sunny skies and warm temperatures! We took a long walk on Coast Guard Beach yesterday morning. It was warm enough for shorts and a t-shirt. And then walked on the bayside in the afternoon.  It doesn’t get much better!

Boat Meadow Beach on Cape Cod Bay looks like a summer day with people even swimming!
