The red-breasted nuthatches have to be my new favorite bird to watch while I'm home. I've seen them in my parents' yard during my past few visits. What usually alerts me to their presence is their unique squeaking chatter. It's obviously much like that of the white-breasted nuthatch but since I know theirs so well I can tell when it's the other bird.
My friend Chris Walsh saw some Snow Buntings on the spit in Mashpee the week of October 29th. He also saw a Rough Legged Hawk over the marsh near Provincetown.
Another bird I'd love to catch is the Snowy Owl. I read that they're around on the Cape right now in the Cape Cod Times.
