It was a rainy day last weekend when we stopped to see if there were any birds at Boat Meadow Beach. An there, on the mud flats, was a group (also called a “wedge”) of Egrets just hanging out.
What a treat!
What a sight to see all of these Cormorants enjoying their time on this Sunfish which was waiting to be taken out for the season. There was even a Cormorant standing on the mooring and more of them just swimming around anxious for that precious space to open up.
All I could think of was that I hope whoever owns this boat brought a big brush to clean it off. Or maybe just flip it over! The Cormorants were loving it!
The Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is just gorgeous this year. They have done a beautiful job creating a flower garden with walking paths so that people can really enjoy the natural environment. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
There are so many different varieties of flowers that bloom at all different times of the summer.
What a wonderful place to explore and enjoy!
We have seen so many Baltimore Orioles at our jelly feeder the past couple of weeks, I keep thinking that they must be filling up for their migration. I’ve never seen so many… sometimes there’s a line of 7 or 8 waiting for the feeder. And it is quite amazing that they patiently wait for their turn.
We look forward to their return each spring. They are such a beautiful bird and so chatty and colorful. We will miss them when they finally leave in the next couple of weeks.
