9.22.15 - Cape Cod Museum Of Natural History - Tuesday Tweets - John Wing Trail
Brewster, MA

The colors are starting to turn towards those lovely muted fall tones on the marsh.  We heard some chatter over head as we began our walk this morning, not knowing if we'd be feeling some mosquito relief, or be fighting our way through an attack yet again!  It was a peaceful walk this morning!  We were hearing more than seeing at first and I wanted to reach the beach again, well... because we can.  We were able to complete the trail loop - something we don't often get to fit in, but we seized the moment, and that trail I feel could put anyone at ease.  Even the breeze through the reeds and the oak trees made any anxious thoughts blow away.  It was nice to be in the sand, searching for the birds in the distance.  I'm looking forward to another new season, and it won't be long I feel before my cap is switched to a warmer hat!  Summer is on its way out... (double click photos to enlarge)  Rick's pics are WONDERFUL!

To me, this photo makes the gull look almost like a Bald Eagle!
