This Double-Crested Cormorant was posing on the little island of rocks and logs out in the middle or Cliff Pond at Nickerson State Park. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I thought it looked just like a statue… what do you think?
I bet this is not what you thought of when you read the title, “Kayak Fishing On Cape Cod.” This Great Blue Heron was making very good use of this yellow kayak to stand on while fishing for breakfast. It was obvious that he had done it before as he he flew in and was quite adept at it. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
We watched him for quite a while while he kept catching fish after fish. He certainly had found the perfect fishing spot!
We haven’t seen an Eastern Phoebe since we moved to Cape Cod six years ago until… one flew onto the fence right in front of our car by the river the other morning.
My motto has always been, “Don’t leave home without your camera!” Well, I left home without my camera and here was my first Eastern Phoebe. So, I took this photograph with my iPhone. I’ve gone back several times with my camera but to no avail… he keeps hiding in the trees, probably to spite me and my forgetting my camera!
If you know the Belted Kingfisher, you can tell exactly what bird it is by its distinct silhouette. This Kingfisher had just landed on the pole above the water, probably looking for breakfast.
I love his “bad hair” look!
This photograph of the Piping Plover got lost in the shuffle last summer when I was posting bird photos. I thought it was so cute.
Love the blue, blue sky and him looking out from the top of the little dune at Coast Guard Beach. What do you think?
We don’t usually see so many Egrets all together, so it looked like a mini-convention with them all milling about in the tall grass by Cape Cod Bay.
I loved the photograph; what do you think?
