I love the bright pink Stork’s-Bill wildflowers that bloom very early on Cape Cod. They were one of the first to bloom along the trails in Colorado too.
They are so small and delicate with 5 petals and grow close to the ground. I saw these in huge patches at National Seashore Visitor’s Center in Eastham.
Have you ever seen Stork’s-Bill wildflowers?
The Osprey are back and abundant around Nauset Marsh and all the salt marshes on Cape Cod. This one flew right overhead just as I clicked.
Beautiful bird, don’t you think? Have you ever seen their huge nests built on top of a telephone pole?
We always know when the Red-Bellied Woodpecker is hungry at the Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary because you can her squawking from far away! You can walk down the Silver Spring trail and hopefully see her poking her head out of the hole in the tree, which is her home about 20 feet up.
Have you ever seen a Woodpecker’s hole in a tree? Pretty cool, don’t you think?
I saw this beautiful blue wildflower at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary the other day, in the garden outside the Nature Center. I think it is Blue-Eyed Grass, It was so pretty and so delicate.
Does anyone know if it is Blue-Eyed Grass?
Since I wrote this Blog, someone commented that it is a Glory of the Snow wildflower. Kudos to my readers for taking the time to help me identify it! Thank you!!
I took a quick walk down to Boat Meadow Beach before the storm was upon us. The sky was so pretty. I Look at those clouds!
What do you think?
The hike at Morris Island in Chatham on Cape Cod is so pretty. You can see the steep steps that lead down to the pristine beach.
Don’t forget your binoculars as there are sure to be some interesting things to see along the trail and beach!
