Subject: [NHBirds] Mt Washington Highlights-9/2
Hiked up the Tuckerman Ravine and Lion's Head on the way to Mt Washington
yesterday. Conditions were ideal: 60°F, sunny, no to very few clouds! There
were mobs of people along Tuckerman's Ravine, as would be expected on a
holiday weekend with nice weather, but Lion's Head and the Alpine Garden
were less so. Here were the highlights, avian and non-avian:

American Pipits- 1 at the summit, 1 flying over the ravine towards the

Bicknell's Thrush- Surprised to have one calling just below Lion's Head!

Boreal Chickadee- On the ascent along Tuckerman's Ravine trail

Black-throated Green Warblers

Yellow-rumped Warblers

Belted Kingfisher (at pond across from Pinkham Notch Visitor's Center)

Broad-winged Hawk- Cool to see one start at the base and soar skywards on
thermals alone-- Didn't flap once!

Other non-avian highlights:

Canada Darner- on the shelters at Tuckerman Ravine camp

Milbert's Tortoiseshell- at 5500 feet, at least!

White Mountain Fritillary- An active day for these, saw at least three
above the treeline as I hiked.

Here's the eBird list:
