Cape Cod

Sanderling, Coast Guard Beach, Eastham, MA

I made a trip down to Cape Cod starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. Although not a birding trip I managed to get some birding in at various locations around the area centered on Eastham. I made trips to Coast Guard Beach, Fort Hill, Head of the Meadow Beach, Pilgram Heights, Wellfleet Bay Audubon Center, and a whale watch out of Provincetown. I have not totalled up species yet but I will update later. I did manage a new state species, Yellow crowned Night Heron leaving a roost near Fort Hill. The whale watch produced several whales but very few pelagic birds with no shearwaters at all. The only pelagic birds were a handful of Northern Gannets and a single Red necked Phalarope. I was quite surprised to find no other birds out there on the southern end of Stellwagen. There were a few other birds of note but I will have to update the post at a later time and add a more few photos.
