Bird Feathers On Cape Cod

Phil and I were taking a walk from Doane Rock to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod the other day. I saw this huge Red-tailed Hawk feather on the trail. I thought it was so pretty that I took a photograph. I put a penny next to it so you could see how big it was.

A couple of days later I was filling our bird bath and noticed this tiny little feather floating in the water. I wonder what kind of bird it was from? So I put a penny next to it so you could see how tiny it was.

Pretty cool, huh?

Cute Little Bunny On The Trail At Fort Hill In Eastham On Cape Cod

This cut, little baby bunny was just munching away along on the trail at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. I did not faze him at all. He would look at me and munch away. I was so close that I had to step back to get a good photograph.

After he finished eating, he lay down on the trail to take a nap while I clicked away.

So cute, don’t you think?
