Took a day trip to the lower Cape this week – which means if you live in Chatham, as we do, one travels to the north toward the unique and beautiful landscapes of the Cape Cod National Seashore and the sprawling sand spit that is the Provincelands. The deciduous forests here are at their peak in fall foliage color and when one observes these surroundings in the incredible autumn light at this time of year ……well…..see what you think. Also lovely to study the magnificent Northern Harrier hunting rodents amongst our stunning natural environments. Other notable bird life observed were a sharp shinned hawk , 2 pairs of hooded mergansers , several golden crowned kinglets, a ruby crowned kinglet, a blue headed vireo, a black throated blue warbler and a magnificent blue winged teal which was foraging among the cat tails. Note that some of the images are made of the same vistas as lighting conditions changed in the warm late afternoon offering changes in the mood.
All part of the “septober” magic we have been blessed with again this fall on Cape Cod..
