Yesterday Was A Gorgeous Day For Kayaking On Cape Cod!

Yesterday was one of the “10 best”days  here on Cape Cod with the temps in the high 60s and sunny with a little breeze. Just perfect. Hopefully you got to spend a little time enjoying the outdoors with the colder temperatures looming around the corner. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

We watched these two kayakers land at Boat Meadow Beach. What a beautiful setting. And then… two Yellowlegs flew in which you can see better in the 2nd photo.

Did you get to enjoy the outdoors yesterday?



Lesser Yellowlegs At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.

This Lesser Yellowlegs was posing for some photographs at Boat Meadow Beach the other day. I love his yellow legs and feet! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Beautiful bird, don’t you think? I can’t decide which photo I like better… what do you think?

Four Rare Whimbrels At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.

Yesterday was one of those days where, if you want to get out and take a walk, you do it between raindrops. Well, the rain had stopped and the sky didn’t look too dark so I thought I’d walk over to Boat Meadow Beach. Was I in for a big surprise! (Click on blog link for other photos.)

As I walked out the door, I turned around to get my camera and a plastic bag in case it started raining. I was so glad that I grabbed my camera as I saw 4 Whimbrels feeding by the water’s edge. They were just beautiful.

I’ve only see them once before here on Cape Cod at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary a few years ago, so this was a big treat! It is rare to see them on the Cape,  especially four of them together.

They are easily identified by their black and white-striped crown and long “decurved” bill. Have you ever seen a Whimbrel? It certainly made my day!
