5.11.14 - Mother's Day - Beech Forest Trail
Provincetown, MA
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)
