Subject: [NHBirds] International Migratory Bird Day Results for the Hanover, NH Outing 2018-05-12
In observance of the 100th anniversary of the International Migratory Bird
Treaty Act, The Hanover Conservancy and the Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon
teamed up to sponsor a birding outing at Hanover's scenic Balch Hill
Natural Area.

Conditions were briskly cool, with the temperature near freezing, when
eleven birders set off on the trail leading up to the hill's summit.

A respectable number of species, 35, were observed over the next
two-and-a-half hours. Thirteen species of warblers were recorded.
Highlights included both a male and female Cap May warblers, a Tennessee
warbler and a Nashville warbler. Yellow-rumpeds were the most numerous
warbler species on the morning with nine recorded.

Other highlights included both red-breasted (3) and white-breasted (1)
nuthatches and a vividly red scarlet tanager.

A complete account of the morning's sighting can be seen by using the

Thanks to The Hanover Conservancy's Gail McPeek, along with Len Reitsma and
David Merker, for co-leading. Thanks to the Mascoma Chapter's Blake Allison
for compiling the count list
