My Early Fall trip to the Cape

A snowy zen...
A snowy zen…

So I was hoping that, like last year, I’d see the hundreds of tree swallows feasting on the waxy bay berries.  But alas, the bay berries were still intact. BUT I did get to see hundreds of very cute surf scoters (colorful bills and white dots on the back of their heads), white-winged scoters (white eye liner), black scoters (all in black), and eiders fishing off of High Head.  Scoter is pronounced like voters.    Here is the video of the scoters, my video from last year, and some pictures from this year.

Last year’s video visit:
