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


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 inits winter coloring.

I did some research and learned  that 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?

Love The Wild Turkeys On Cape Cod!


I thought it would be fun to post a photograph of one of Cape Cod’s many Wild Turkeys on Thanksgiving. I took this photo last summer when this male was strutting around our yard courting a female. It was quite a sight to see!

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! May you find a few minutes to go outside and enjoy some nature… after your delicious Thanksgiving meal.

Great Blue Heron Fishing In Wiley Pond On Cape Cod!


If you want a truly beautiful hike through the woods and by a kettle pond on Cape Cod, try Wiley Park in Eastham. You never know what you might see!

I love hiking Wiley Park. There are so many different trails to take and  I never get bored… there is always something new to see.

The other day we were walking over the bridge and I happened to look down and saw a Great Blue Heron fishing in the pond. I certainly was in the right place at the right time. He was so patient… just look at his eyes.

Have you ever hiked Wiley Park?

Double-Crested Cormorants At Boat Meadow Creek On Cape Cod.


I was just commenting to Phil a few days ago that I hadn’t gotten a good photograph of the Double-Crested Cormorant this past summer. I was just never in the right place at the right time. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

And then as I was walking over the bridge on Boat Meadow Creek the other day, I saw three Double-Crested Cormorants. How cool!

This  2nd Cormorant was just standing on the river bank looking around.  I loved his big, webbed feet!

Cute little guy, don’t you think?
