I've compiled a rough list of "coastal" birds recorded this weekend.
Mostly by Jane and I, but also with a few choice "nuggets" by other
birders. I'm sure I'm missing a few species seen by others, but still
interesting to compare and contrast with the Concord list.
Wood Duck - 6 yesterday on Dodge Ponds in Hampton Falls.
American Wigeon - Lots on Great Bay yesterday, but no Eurasian.
American Black Duck
Pied-billed Grebe - 1 yesterday on Dodge Pond in Hampton Falls.
