Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.


One of my favorite things to do is… get up and go for a hike! I am definitely a morning person and the earlier, the better! The colors were so pretty at Nauset Marsh this particular morning. I love the soft blues and pinks. And that reflection of theĀ  sun on the water… so pretty, don’t you think ?

Look at all of those birds in the water!

Red And Birdie Huddled Together In The Snow On Cape Cod


The snow was falling and it was turning dusk when I looked outside and saw this flash of vibrant red in the evergreen tree. I quickly got my camera and clicked. At first I thought it was a male Northern Cardinal (Red) and then I realized the the female (Birdie) was huddled up right next to him. They were so beautiful with the snow coming down…


Gorgeous Hooded Merganser At Great Pond On Cape Cod.


I have wanted a decent photograph of a Hooded Merganser for a long time, but never seem to get one. We stopped at Great Pond to see if there were any birds around and there he was.

The Hooded Merganser is quite distinctive with its black head with a distinct crest and large white patch when raised and bright yellow eyes. Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?

Have you ever seen a Hooded Merganser?

Waiting For Lunch In Our Yard On Cape Cod!


I walked by our bay window and saw a huge bird on our bird feeder, so I quickly grabbed my camera and clicked. I was so positive that it was a Red-tailed Hawk that I didn’t even think twice about it. He was sitting on top of the feeder patiently waiting for the birds which were noticeable absent.

Until… I put it on my computer and realized that it was a Cooper’s Hawk and he was a beauty! I only got one shot and this was it! Beautiful bird, don’t you think? Have you ever seen a Cooper’s Hawk?
