Loved This Great Blue Heron Stalking His Next Meal On Cape Cod.


The Great Blue Heron is my very favorite bird! I love its features and the majestic way it moves. We were walking the Salt Pond Trail and saw this Great Blue looking for his next meal.

Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

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


I saw this Double-crested Cormorant swimming around on Boat Meadow Creek in Eastham a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised that they were still here. It is a diving bird so it was fun to watch it dive under water looking for food.

I loved its reflection and the reflection of the marsh grass in the water. What do you think?

Red-Throated Loon At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.


I love to see the Red-Throated Loon in the water off of Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod. It is such an elusive seabird as it continuously dives for its food.

This Loon just surfaced and was looking around, so we got a minute to click away.

Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

Female Cardinal On The Beech Forest Trail In Provincetown On Cape Cod.


It was such a treat to see this female Cardinal while hiking the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. I love Cardinals! We had read a story years ago about 2 Cardinals, male and female, who were named Red and Birdie. Since then all of the Cardinals that we see are either Red or Birdie!

Isn’t she beautiful?
