Thanks to ALL who came out in costume to celebrate Green Halloween, the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History's Halloween celebration...No Tricks, All Treats.
There was record-breaking attendance, more than 675 folks showed up, most of them in costume and all of them in great spirits! I finally dressed up as my favorite bird - a CROW!!! A recurring theme I hear when visiting with guests at the museum, is that the kids I get to meet, are the third generation of museum visitors and that the wonderful place it is, has become a family tradition. There is always something to learn, to see with new eyes and to enjoy over and over again. I was stationed in Bird Alley, and as some of the kids were playing the recorded bird calls over and over, some of the younger guests just stared in amazement, thinking that the big dark bird at the end of Bird Alley was making those sounds. I wish I had video of their expressions!
The BEST treat for me is when I get surprise visits from young Bird Nerds I know! I get to see how they've grown and if I'm lucky, I hear about their latest bird encounter. (double click photos to enlarge)
