Wild Cape Cod Notebook: Beech Forest in the Provincelands
Another beautiful Cape Cod secret for nature lovers, the Beech Forest out on the road to Race Point and is especially beautiful in Spring. Check out some of the surprising scenery and bird life we had on recent visits. Many migrating passerines get blown into the Cape landscapes on their way north in strong southerly winds (mostly at night) on their way to summer mating areas in the Canadian forests. Due to blocking weather patterns the birds were a bit late in arriving this year. And since summer approaches it is especially special to enjoy Cape Cod's quiet and often hidden landscapes and wildlife before we once again head back out on the water and the barrier beaches. It will be late in the fall before we again explore inland to any great extent.
