Common Eiders At Boat Meadow River On Cape Cod

There is a pair of Common Eiders on Boat Meadow Creek in Eastham on Cape Cod. I’ve seen them recently from the bridge on Bridge Road.

The Common Eider is a large duck, from 23-27″ and usually lives along the coastline in all seasons. It feeds primarily underwater on mollusks by up-ending or swimming with only its head submerged.

It was pretty cool to see ┬áthese Common Eiders as I’ve only seen them a couple of times before. Look at the difference in coloring from the male to the female. Have you ever seen one?

 

Footprints In The Sand At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod

It was a glorious morning to take a long walk on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod. It was also very cool to see that only one person had walked on the beach before us.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! And may you always leave some footprints in the sand…wherever you go!

Walking To Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod Is Spectacular!

My son and I took a wonderful walk to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham when he was here visiting last week. It was early in the morning so there was still a dusting of snow on the bridge at Nauset Marsh.

Beautiful photograph, don’t you think? I liked it so much I used it as my screensaver!

If you have never walked to Coast Guard Beach, put it on your Bucket List… it is worth every second!

Beautiful Red-Bellied Woodpecker In Our Yard On Cape Cod

The Red-bellied Woodpecker is back in our yard here on Cape Cod! We’ve heard his call a lot lately, but haven’t seen him in a while.

I love watching him go up and down the tree, searching for insects, or on our suet holder. He is such a beautiful bird!

Have you ever seen a Red-bellied Woodpecker? Funny how he has red on his head, not on his belly!
