Town of Sandwich is at the shoulder. It is the oldest town on Cape Cod. Cape Cod is separated from the mainland by Cape Cod Canal. Part of the Sandwich is located on the mainland and part of it is on Cape Cod. Scusset Beach is on the mainland part of Sandwich at the north end of the Cape Cod Canal. It is a State Reservation with a very nice beach and camping area. I went there for some birding last week. On the beach, there was a flock of seabird. They are probably the most common gull in America, the Ring-Billed Gull, Larus dalawareniss. When I first looked at seagulls, they all looked the same. But when I looked more carefully, they all looked different. The main reason is, they change their look as they get older or are in breeding season. This one is at very young age, it is the first spring for it. I read somewhere, when we photograph bird, we should be at the same eye level as the bird. Thus you can see that I was crawling on the sand like a real bird photographer.
