Birding | Cape Cod

February 26, 2013 by insideout

Birding in Falmouth goes on year round. This picture was in our Falmouth Enterprise paper this week after being snapped in the backyard of a North Falmouth home. Read more below on what one of our guest’s captured during her Falmouth birding.

Downy Woodpecker in Cape Cod

Downy Woodpecker

The downy woodpecker is the smallest of woodpeckers found in North America.ย  All year long it is a common sight in Falmouth where it can be heard and seen drilling into dead limbs as well as utility poles and other man-made objects.ย  You can identify this woodpecker as male due to its unique red patch on the back of its crown.

One of our birding guests this past season was kind enough to document the numerous birds she heard and or saw while staying at the Inn:

Mourning Dove, Red-bellied woodpecker, Downy woodpecker, Northern flicker, Blue jay, American crow, American kestrel, Black capped chickadee,

Tufted titmouse, American robin, Gray catbird, American goldfinch, White breasted nuthatch and Red breasted nuthatch.

Thank you Elaine!
