Black-Bellied Plover At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.


It was so cool to see this Black-bellied Plover at Boat Meadow Beach the other day. I took quite a few photographs as I couldn’t identify it then and there. When I got home I put it on my iBird PRO app and realized that it was a Black-bellied Plover inits winter coloring.

I did some research and learned ┬áthat many of them winter here on Cape Cod and are also seen during migration. I had never seen one there before so that was a first for me! Very cool, don’t you think?

West Heartbreak Hill Loop Trail At Nickerson State Park On Cape Cod!


I love hiking at Nickerson State Park, especially offseason. You can pick one of the trails on the map of make your own using the AllTrails app. We hiked the West Heartbreak Hill Loop Trail yesterday and it was so pretty. (Click on blog link for other photo.) There are so many variations, you can make it as long or as short as you like.

Have you ever hiked in Nickerson State Park? It’s just beautiful with so much diversity. This hike was pretty much in the woods and so pretty. Perfect for this time of the year and especially if it’s windy!


Whale Bones At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod.


The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place to take the whole family. There is so many different things to see, any time of the year.

As you head out on the main trail from the visitors center, you will see a variety of whale bones on the left of the trail. They are really cool to see and the kids love them! Take some photographs and see if the kids can identify them when they get home!

The Berries Of The Bearberry Plants Are Bright Red Now On Cape Cod.


The berries on the Bearberry plants are bright red this time of the year here on Cape Cod. They make for a very festive carpet along the sides of the trails. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

In the early summer the tiny flowers on the Bearberry plants are bell-shaped and whitish pink with red stems and tips. The plant itself grows only about 1 foot high and and is very dense so that it looks like a carpet on the ground. In the late fall the flowers are now bright red berries.

Have you ever seen a Bearberry plant?
