Subject: [NHBirds] Fw: 09/10/17 Pickering Pond walk 60 species
34 birders joined me for an enjoyable walk around Pickering Ponds trails
on Sunday. Bird numbers were not overwhelming, but some good looks at
some interesting species were had. The weather was pleasant as were
the participants. Thanks to scribe Zeke Cornell for the trip report
below and to Becky Suomala and Zeke for helping with crowd control.

Protocol: Traveling, 2.5 mile(s)

Comments: NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter outing led by Dan
Hubbard. This annual autumn migration walk had its largest
attendance of birders, and they were rewarded with a nice
assortment of warblers and some unexpected visitors like Scarlet
Tanager, Swainson's Thrush, Brown Thrasher, and Lincoln Sparrow.
