South Cape Beach is about 20 minutes from our house on the Cape Cod. I have shown recently the Willet on the beach and my walk through the Great Flat Pond Trail of the pine barren. In May and June, it is the migratory Season, we can see many birds returning or passing through. Quite a few pairs of willet nest on South Cape Beach. This one was away from the beach and seeking food at the Swamp area. I like the photo which shows it in a different habitat.
Usually we see Swan in man-made lakes in the parks. Only on the Cape Cod, do I see Mute Swan in the wild and during migration. I have shown their magnificent figures in flight last year. I was glad to see them coming back to the Sedge Lot Pond of the beach this year again.
Look how magnificent they are, coming in for the landing against the morning Sun.
I was so happy to see the egret, the first time for me on the Cape. We have large, middle, little and cattle egrets in Taiwan. But this one is different.
See its black bill and yellow feet, which it raised up for us to see. It is a Snow Egret.
It was very Shy and flew away the minute it saw me approaching.
Here is a common Sparrow on the beach. I love the color of the background of this picture.
This is a female Tree Swallow. The Tree Swallows have established well in the many man-made little bird boxes over the mud flat.
This male Tree Swallow was trying to dive-bomb me, see its brilliant blue feathers.
