In my unending and mostly futile search for warblers migrating locally, I stopped by the NH Department of Transportation lot off Broad Street at Exit 6. Bordering the Nashua River and opposite Mine Falls Park, it can be a nice little spot to check.
No luck with warblers, but an American Bittern and I surprised one another when I walked back past the little detention pond next to the parking lot-- literally feet from the Everett Turnpike! It didn't freeze for photos though, but flew toward the Nashua River, and all I got were a few poor pics of it flying away.
