Wellfleet Audubon~Birding

Howdee all,

Jeff and spent a few mornings at the Wellfleet Audubon on Cape Cod.

See the Bank of Solar panels behind the signs?

Wellfleet Audubon_006The also use their graywater to water their gardens.

Wellfleet Audubon_007We took a walk around on our own and also joined a birding walk.

imageThe morning of the birding walk we saw this family of Bobwhite on the fence, before we started our walk.

Numbers of Bobwhite are declining with habitat loss on the Cape.

Wellfleet Audubon_001The center has jelly feeders..

Wellfleet Audubon_004Baltimore Orioles love Grape Jelly…I was surprised to see them still going to the jelly. I noticed in Ct. at my parents feeders, the Orioles stop going to the jelly a few weeks after their young fledge.

Wellfleet Audubon_013This was a first for me..have you seen this before?
