Bird sightings on Cape Cod

Recent bird sightings on Cape Cod (as of
Dec. 5) as reported to the Massachusetts
Audubon Society.

A very rare little egret, a European cousin to our more familiar snowy egret, has been seen by Kalmus Beach in Hyannis. Both great and snowy egrets, each rare for December, are also in the area. Two black-headed gulls and a laughing gull have also been seen at Kalmus and also Ocean Avenue Beach.
