Birding Falmouth Town Landing

On the evening of August 7th I left Gilsland Farm to return to pick up my Mother from her cousin’s house. I drove as if in a dream, wondering when I would see these places and these people again. New England is such a green place in summer, and the ocean is so blue. Before returning to the house I stopped by Falmouth Town Landing, hoping to see at least a few shorebirds as the sun slowly slipped towards the western horizon. It is the direction I will be heading…in just a few days.

The day is almost here. Tomorrow the movers come. My computer is being disconnected tonight. I do not know when I will be able to check in again. I will see you all again in Tucson…or whenever I can get some WIFI!

P.S. I do have a few posts scheduled, just in case!


  1. Hi Kathie, I wish you safe travels to Tucson. A lovely goodby post.

  2. Good luck with the move Kathie, and the all the travel in between. I'm looking forward to your renewed posts out of Tucson, but will also miss these lovely scenes from New England that you present so well.

  3. I can't wait!!! Now will you go back to the Sycamore blog or stick with this one? Have safe travels. Your parting shots of the birds in flight are gorgeous. One chapter closes and another begins. Chris

  4. You'll be photographing birds no matter where you are. These shore birds are delightful, but then so are the birds of AZ. Safe journey.

  5. Hi Kathie

    You got some lovely photos of the shorebirds. All the best on your move.


  6. I have trawled hack to the beginning of August, so much to see and read. Loved it all highlights for me were the amazing staircase, the muskrat and the flight of sanderlings. Good luck with your move, stay safe.


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
