Cape Cod in Late April Part 2

A couple of loons

Last Monday I posted a bunch of photos I took of Osprey.  All of these photos were taken in an hour.  I was on Cape Cod on a “stay-cation” at my cottage for four days without any work.  So what did I do for the other three days, 23 hours?  Well, here are some more photos ;)

Swan on Swan Pond

I Have a Regret, Snowy Egret

I love the egrets I see all of the time. They are a study of grace. Tall and slender but with a beak as fast as a bullet. I’ve taken hundreds of pictures of these birds I called “Snowy Egrets”.

Last year I saw some smaller white birds. They were obviously egrets, but they were about half the size of the ones I was used to. I wondered what they could be.

Snowy Egret

This spring I picked up a book on birds of Cape Cod. They only had one white egret, the snowy. Continue reading
