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?
This little Tufted Titmouse was searching for food along the side of the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. He stopped long enough to look at me so I could get a nice photograph.
Beautiful little bird, don’t you think?
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.
This beautiful Northern Flicker loves our bird bath… either just to take a drink or to take a bath. I loved the lighting on him.
His coloring is so pretty; what do you think?
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?
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?
