Adorable Long-Tailed Duck In Provincetown Harbor On Cape Cod.

I’ve seen this little guy swimming around in Provincetown Harbor a few times but he was never close enough to get a photograph. So when I saw him a couple of days ago I thought I would try again. He still was a bit far away…

He is a Long-Tailed Duck, non-breeding with winter plumage. His colors are gorgeous. Stephanie Ellis, the Executive Director of Wild Care Cape Cod helped me with identification. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you, Stephanie!

He was just so adorable. One of my friends said he looked like a cartoon duck. I think it looks like someone glued cotton balls all over his head! Very distinctive!

Colorado Rockies Or Provincetown On Cape Cod?

We were driving to Provincetown yesterday morning and noticed that there was a pretty heavy coating of snow from Eastham to Provincetown. It was really pretty.

Then when we passed East Harbor the snow-covered dunes looked just like the snow-capped  Colorado Rockies! Wow! Pretty cool, don’t you think?
