Beautiful Killdeer At One Of The Tidal Ponds On Cape Cod.

I haven’t seen a Killdeer on Cape Cod in a long, long time, so this was such a treat when I saw a bird with a distinct striped neck by the little tidal pond. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

I clicked away and then put it on my iBird PRO Sleuth App and knew it was indeed a Killdeer. And then, when I got home and put it on my computer, I realized that there were two of them!

Have you ever seen a Killdeer?

Sandbar…Just For A Bit At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod.

When it’s low tide on the bay side of Cape Cod, the tide swings are just amazing. It feels like you can walk out for miles. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I was on the Eastham side of Rock Harbor, enjoying a nice walk on the beach when this family on the sandbar caught my eye. They were having such a good time.

And then when I looked back over 5 minutes later, they were gone as was almost the entire sandbar.

Enjoying Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

It was a gorgeous beach day and people were certainly taking advantage of the perfect weather to spend some time at Coast Guard Beach, part of the National Seashore and rated one of the Top 10 Beaches in the USA.  Looks like summer is here!

High Tide And Low Tide On Cape Cod Bay.

It makes such a difference if you take a photograph at high tide or low tide on Cape Cod Bay. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

I took this first photograph at low tide at Boat Meadow Beach. You can see all the green sea grass that comes out at low tide as well as the huge sand bars with the boats sitting on top of the sand.

I took the 2nd photograph the following day at high tide. Such a  completely different feeling, don’t you think?
