The wildflowers are starting to bloom all over Cape Cod. I keep seeing this pretty white one all along the sides of the roads, but I am having a hard time identifying it.
Does anyone know what kind of wildflower it is? It looks very much like a Saxifrage wildflower out in Colorado.
It was such a pretty day on Cape Cod Bay with some clouds in the sky and the sun trying to shine through.
I loved how the sun was glistening on the water.
What do you think?
I took a walk along the beach the other day at high tide and there were Horseshoe Crabs everywhere! I counted 55 in one little area. I contacted the expert at the Massachusetts Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet to tell him what I had seen. He said that with the warmer weather now, the Horseshoe Crabs will be very active.
Did you know that Horseshoe crabs are an ancient group of arthropods whose bodies are encased in a hard, oval shell? They have a long, rigid tail and five pairs of legs that they use for crawling, swimming, and gathering food.
It was really quite a site to see!
There was a Red-Tailed Hawk in the bird bath in our backyard the other day! It was unbelievable!
We rounded the corner to go out back and saw this humongous bird sitting in the bird bath. How funny! He was there long enough to get out our phone and click some photographs. They are a bit out of focus… must have been the excitement!
He has been bringing branches way up high in one of the tall White Pine trees to build his nest. We can see him at work through the pine needles. But never imagined he would ever get that close.
Have you ever heard of a Red-Tailed Hawk in a bird bath?
It was windy but warm on Cape Cod Bay the other day. It was such fun to see the kite surfers out enjoying the wind and waves.
We were driving across the salt marsh early the other day when I saw this coyote out hunting for breakfast. I had never seen a coyote on Cape Cod and this one was just a little ways from our home.
He was way out on the salt marsh as he prowled about. You can see how he is pouncing as he finds something that looked interesting in the grasses.
Cool photo, don’t you think?
