A few Saturdays ago, Jeff and I joined a group of birders on a guided trip Sponsored by Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
The trip left Outermost Harbor..
a fifteen minute trip to South Beach.
Although it wasn’t prime shorebird migration we did see a decent amount of birds.

It was an overcast day, but otherwise quite nice.
I have more photos of birders than birds.
we did see birds, really!
Here is our trip leader looking at one of his favorite birds.

We walked to the ocean, the Golden Rod was loaded with these moths..
