Subject: [NHBirds] Snow buntings Alton
Saw my first snow buntings of the year in a blueberry barrens off Africa
Road on Prospect mtn in Alton yesterday - just two individuals.

Also had a group of about 1000 common grackles foraging on the ground deep
within an oak-pine stand - seemed to be eating birch and/or maple/ash seeds
that they were gather among the leaves.

Oh yeah, and the lowbush blueberries were in full flower - not right.

*Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land. By land is meant
all of the living things on, over, or in the earth. Harmony with land is
like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off
his left. That is to say, you cannot love game and hate predators; you
cannot conserve the waters and waste the ranges; you cannot build the
forest and mine the farm. The land is one organism. (A. Leopold)*
