5.11.14 - Mother's Day - Beech Forest Trail
It's not every family that will spoil a mother rotten by going on a hike on Mother's Day, but my wonderful husband suggested it, because he knows how much I love the location and the activity that occurs at the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. If you are patient and quiet enough, you will receive sweet visits from Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse and so many other bird species. It is a SPECTACULAR Bird Nerd spot. Thank you to my incredible family for giving me this day. I couldn't think of a better way to be appreciated on Mother's Day! (click on photos to enlarge)
...and at Race Point:
That Black-capped Chickadee is interested
Painted Turtles basking in the sunny pond
Red-Winged Blackbird (male)
PATIENCE gone... (he lasted a long time)
Happy Mommy Me
This was a juvenile Black-capped Chickadee!
I have never seen Race Point so calm.
Laughing Gull & Common Tern
Hope you had a very Happy Mother's Day too!
