One my way back from Washington, DC to Cape Cod, I stopped by at Hyannis Transportation Center waiting for Sealine bus to take me to Mashpee. In the station, I picked up The Guidebook Cape Cod. As I read on, I found each Friday in May, the Mass Audubon Society run a Birding Cape Cod out from the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. I enthusiastically called them and made a reservation for yesterday, May 8th.
I arrived on time at 9 a.m. with a group of senior citizens, all of them were seasoned birders and have known each other well. The guide took us in a van to several well known birding spots including the Pilgrim Hights at Truro and Race Point near Province Town. These are bird watchers, thus they were happy with just spotted the birds with their binocular, unlike me trying hard to photograph the birds with my 80-400mm lens mounted on D700. After the tour, I walked around the Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary, which I have visited last year. Overall it was a very successful trip. Following are the birds that I saw and photographed.
Greater Yellow Leg
Male Northern Cardinal
Male Eastern Bluebird
Female Eastern Bluebird
Male Red-winged Blackbird
Female Red-winged Blackbird
Female Scarlet Tanager (This one should be Female Baltimore Oriel, notice the white strait on the wing, 5/12/2010)
