Cape Cod Winter Birds

I hope everyone had a great holiday. It was so nice to have a white Christmas in the New England area. On Cape Cod more often than not snow turns to rain and have a very wet Christmas, but this year the snow from Dec. 19th's storm (SE Massachusetts got 2 feet) was still on the ground.

Here are some pictures taken by my cousin's cousin Megan (but I consider my cousin too) in Sandwich. Look at those waves!

Like the old saying goes-any cousin of a cousin is a cousin of mine. Nice photos-I haven't seen a Purple Finch for almost a year.

@Larry- yes indeed! I have a huge family, including extended family that I stay in touch with.

One thing that hadn't occurred to me until it was brought up last night (at the South Shore Birders Club dinner) was how easy it is to confuse House Finches and Purple Finches. I better be careful!
