There were four beautiful Great Egrets on the edge of Nauset Marsh looking for food. It was interesting watching them as they stalked their prey and then made a dash for the fish.
Such a gorgeous bird, don’t you think? They look so regal as they stand in wait for their next meal to come along.
There are many different trails that you can hike at Fort Hill… through the woods, across the boardwalk, in the meadows and more. I love this hike along Nauset Marsh with Coast Guard Station in the background.
So pretty, don’t you think?
We stopped to watch this Great Blue Heron fish at Nauset Marsh and, before we knew it, it had caught a fish.
So cool…. my all-time favorite bird. Isn’t he beautiful?
We were just finishing our hike by Nauset Marsh the other day when I saw these tracks in the snow. What on earth were they? At first I thought they were hiking pole holes, but there were no hiking boot tracks or any other tracks nearby. Hmmm… (Click on blog link to see other photos.)
The only other tracks I had ever seen in the snow that came close to these was a Great Blue Heron. Their tracks were huge! So I put my foot next to it, which you can see in the 2nd photograph. I wear a size 9, so these tracks were pretty big.
And there were a lot of them. What were they? What were they doing? Where were they going? Anyone have any other ideas? Am I close? Am I way off? Any comments are welcome!
One of my favorite things to do is… get up and go for a hike! I am definitely a morning person and the earlier, the better! The colors were so pretty at Nauset Marsh this particular morning. I love the soft blues and pinks. And that reflection of the sun on the water… so pretty, don’t you think ?
Look at all of those birds in the water!
The Doane Rock Trail to Coast Guard Beach has so much diversity. You walk in the woods, along the coastline of Nauset Marsh and over 2 boardwalks. This is the first boardwalk through the tall reeds of the marsh. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
I took it in a horizontal and a vertical. Which one do you you like better?
