The Goldfinches Are Turning Vibrant Yellow On Cape Cod


It’s so much fun to watch the Goldfinches as they change from a drab yellowy-brown in the winter to a bright yellow for the summer.

These two Goldfinches were getting a drink at our bird bath. They lean down and get a drink of water and then put their heads back and swallow. So cute, don’t you think? It looks like the one on the left is singing!

Bluebird Couple In Our New Birdhouse On Cape Cod


We put our new birdhouse up a couple of weeks ago and within 20 minutes we had 2 Bluebirds checking it out. We were thrilled! And then they left.

Hmmmmm. Where did they go? Were they coming back? And then a couple of days ago they returned. They have been in and out of the birdhouse so I presume they are making a home? I sure hope so! We already have Bluebirds in one of our houses on the other side of the yard, so this would make 2 Bluebirds and 2 Chickadees! Awesome!

Family Of Swans At Boat Meadow On Cape Cod


It was such a treat to see this family of Swans at Boat Meadow on Cape Cod Bay the other day. At first I thought they were white buoys that had washed in during the storm, but, as they got closer to shore, I realized they were Swans. I have never seen Swans swimming there before.

Pretty, don’t you think? The juvenile was just following along behind mom and dad. So cute!


Feeding Frenzy At Nauset Beach On Cape Cod


The birds were loving the huge feeding frenzy at Nauset Beach, part of the National Seashore. There were birds everywhere, diving into the water, so there must have been fish everywhere in the water. It was really beautiful to watch.


I couldn’t decide which photograph I liked better, What do you think?
