Mom Bluebird Feeding Her Three Babies In Our Yard On Cape Cod


The bluebirds have all fledged and sure are hungry. You can hear their little peeps all day long as the moms fly in for the seed and then fly back and feed their young. Yesterday the little babies were all on a branch in a nearby tree.  Mom would  fly down for a seed and then fly back up to the branch and feed each one.

Today they all showed up at our bird feeders. Mom would get a seed and then fly feed each one as they sat there patiently.

It doesn’t get much cuter than this! What do you think?

The Least Terns Are Nesting At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod


The Least Terns were quite noisy as we walked by their roped off area on Coast Guard Beach. The nesting area is off limits to people and pets as the Least Terns and the Piping Plovers lay their eggs and raise their young.

This Least Tern looked so regal as he posed for his photograph!

Lots Of Birding In Our Backyard On Cape Cod


We frequently have 15-20 or more different species of birds frequent our birdfeeders during the day. It is so much fun to watch and see if any new species stop by… and if they stay.

I loved this photograph of the Baltimore Oriole and the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak  feeding at our bird feeders. I was able to get them both in the same frame.

It doesn’t get much better!

Red-Winged Blackbird At Fort Hill On Cape Cod


You can always hear the distinct “Cu-ca-ree” call of the Red-Winged Blackbird as you hike around Fort Hill. They are everywhere and so pretty.

This guy was high in the Eastern Cedar tree along Nauset Marsh just singing away. Love his coloring… so bright and vibrant!

Great Crested Flycatcher In Our Backyard On Cape Cod


It was very cool when I got my binoculars and saw this Great Crested Flycatcher sitting on a branch in our backyard. I kept hearing this very distinct bird call for a couple of days but didn’t know what it was and knew I hadn’t heard it before.

I ran in and got my camera while Phil watched it in the tree. When I looked it up in my bird book it said that it is often heard more often than it is seen and that it stays fairly high in the trees.

I loved the little crest of fluff on top of its head. Have you ever seen a Great Crested Flycatcher?
