Inland. I’m guessing there were but we were pressed for time.

IMG_2307.jpg.7e06142ad0362731cfa961f19b1a5b55.jpgAnyone know what this is? A family member sent me a picture of this washed up on a falmouth beach. Mooring, part of a trawler......?

That's definately the tip section of an arrowhead / spearpoint.  The base is snapped off.  Most probably broken during the hunt.

Agreed. I tried to google it identify the type/time stamp but struggled with all the possible options. I found it near the petrified forest in Arizona. I think it’s made out of the petrified wood. Stuff is unbelievable hard. I was on cloud 9

It does look like petrified wood.  With the base missing it's pretty hard to know the type or the era that it was from.   Nice find all the same.

Wish I could take pictures( or more accurately had the desire to spend he money of the right equipment) .....saw a nice drake pintail in with a group of mallards in a pond by the beach at lunch, then around the corner in the surf along the rocks were several groups of harlequin ducks. 

 

I have a canon eos rebel, but just a basic lens , so the pictures I took of the pintail are worthless, and I didn't bother trying to take any of the harlequins.  Maybe next time............

Not MA, but Englewood, FL. Driving along a relatively undeveloped road and saw this guy in someone’s yard. Gopher tortoise. Stopped, ran onto the lawn, and took some pictures. Had to wait a few seconds but he popped back out.

I don’t know the last time I saw a pintail.  
 

Im on Cape Ann and we get quite a few harlequin ducks every winter.  They seem to stay right in the surf along the rocks.  Neat birds
