Black And Gray Brant At Wellfleet Harbor On Cape Cod.


The Brant is a part of the geese family and can be seen on Cape cod during the winter months. This Brant was sauntering along the shore at Wellfleet Harbor.

It’s very distinguishable with its black head and belly and brown-grey upperparts. It has pale grey underparts. It’s easiest to identify by its broken collar pattern at its neck.

Have you ever seen a Brant?

Love The trail To Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.


Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore, is one of the prettiest beaches in the country. I love the trail leading to the beach where you can see the water and waves with the dune grass on either side. It’s the “perfect” Cape Cod photo op!

So pretty, don’t you think?

Phil’s Custom-Made Bluebird Bird Feeder On Cape Cod.


We had such a problem last summer with all of the Grackles and Starlings and Crows eating all of the Bluebird’s mealworms (very expensive food but the Bluebird’s favorite), Phil decided he had to do something about it.  He designed his own Bluebird bird feeder that only allows the “little” birds to eat from it. (Click  on link for a better photo.) It has worked wonderfully!

We bought a bird feeder from the Bird Watcher’s General Store in Orleans and then Phil “retrofitted” it with 10 screws going all around the inside of the dish and some electrical tape.  The inside of the dish had to be raised so only the Bluebirds, sitting on the edge of the dish, could eat the mealworms.  You can also adjust the height of the top cover so that only the Bluebirds can get in.  It is amazing that they fly right in and out, even when lowered more than in the photograph.

The Bluebirds and a few other small birds have no trouble flying in for a meal, while the other “pesky” birds that eat everything in sight cannot get in.

Ingenious, don’t you think?


Interesting Buoy On Nauset Beach On Cape Cod.


We saw this very interesting buoy on Nauset Beach the other day. It looked like someone had stood it up in the sand. As we got closer, you could see all of the mussels attached to the buoy. (Click on link to see the whole buoy.)

We wondered how long the buoy has been in the water with all those mussels. Wow! Pretty interesting, don’t you think?
