I love this photograph of this Seagull standing on the sign for Fort Hill above Nauset Marsh in Eastham on Cape Cod. Fort Hill is one of my favorite places to hike and go birding on Cape Cod. It has a series of trails which  you can take in the woods or out by the marshes.

This Seagull is showing you the map of the area so you can decide what you would like to do!

Cute little Welcome Sign, huh?

This flock of birds was flying by on the shore of Wellfleet Bay in migration formation so we quickly got our cameras out and clicked away. And there, as if forming a circle above, was part of a rainbow as we looked up.

Very cool. Wishing you all a Happy New Year and may you find a rainbow in the New Year!

This Seagull was so much fun to watch as it was trying to open a clam that it had found at the beach inlet in the water. First he leaned headfirst down to get the clam. And then he deposited it on the sand and stared at it.

He then put it back in his beak and started to fly, all of a sudden dropping it on a rock in the water.

He proceded to find it under the watwer, pick it up and swim to shore and have himself a feast. He was one mightly proud seagull!

Pretty amazing, huh? He not only knew where there was a rock under water, but knew exactly where to retrieve the clam once it was smashed.
