Chatty Willets At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

You can hear the call of the Willets all over Cape Cod this time of the year. It’s as if they’re saying, “We’re back!” (Click on blog link for other photo.)

The Willets love to stand on fence railings, posts, signs and anything they can find to stand on. This guy was walking down the fence at Fort Hill. You can see how different their coloring is when they open up their wings.


Lots Of Horseshoe Crabs Mating At Hemenway Landing On Cape Cod.

It’s mating season for the Horseshoe Crabs at Hemenway Landing. You could see a lot of them along the edge of the water. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

“The crabs live in the ocean year-round but come ashore like clockwork every year between the May and June full moons to mate and lay eggs.” The ones that I saw looked pretty old with lots of seaweed and barnacles growing on their shells.
