We’ve had some beautiful days here on Cape Cod the past couple of weeks, so we got our binoculars and headed to Boat Meadow Beach to see if there were any shore birds around. From the car we couldn’t see much so we thought it would be fun to walk over to Rock Harbor via the flats. Were we in for a treat!
There were shore birds everywhere on the flats searching for food. We got our cameras out and clicked away, hoping for that special photo op. It wasn’t until we got home and looked on the computer that we saw some birds that we had never seen before. In this frame you can see a White-rumped Sandpiper, a Semipalmated Plover and a Western Sandpiper. We had never seen the White-rumped Sandpiper or the Western Sandpiper before.
How cool is that?
