I’ve been looking for the Northern Bobwhite at Fort Hill all summer. I’ve heard his call of “Bob-white, bob-white,” but I haven’t been able to find him.
And then we drove up the road one morning last week and there he was… walking down the road. I was able to get a couple of photographs before he ran into the high grass.
Have you seen the Bobwhite at Fort Hill this summer? #eastham #forthill
These 2 Green Herons were so much fun to watch the other morning. It looks like a mother and a young one. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
The larger one would walk along the rail and the little one would follow along. At one point, it looked like they were fighting as the parent tried to get away.
The last photograph almost looks like the parent is reprimanding the little one. So much fun to watch… and then they both flew away!
Two young Flickers landed on our bird bath a couple of weeks ago. They would hop around the outside and then take a little drink. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
And then, one of them decided to try and take a bath. It was just adorable watching him very carefully get in the water and then splash around.
I love watching the baby birds here on the Cape and all their “firsts.” It doesn’t get much cuter!
When I looked out the window, this juvenile Cooper’s Hawk was looking in at me. It took me by surprise! He looked around, hopped up on the bench, looked around some more and then flew off.
You could tell that he was a young hawk because he kept ruffling his feathers like he was waiting for mom to feed him.
So adorable, don’t you think? What a beautiful bird!
This beautiful Eastern Kingbird has been hanging around our yard all summer. He loves to sit up on a branch high in the trees and come down for an occasional drink. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Have you ever seen an Eastern Kingbird?
I looked out the window yesterday and 4 little Bluebird chicks were sitting around our tiny, little birdbath, trying to take a bath. It was just precious! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
We had some baby Bluebirds here about a month ago, so this must be a 2nd brood. What a treat!
It doesn’t get much cuter!
