Yesterday the NH Rare Bird Committee (NHRBC) voted on records of review species covering the four 2017 seasons - Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, and Winter 2017/2018. Highlights were the addition of 5 species to the NH statelist -
Common Shelduck - 8/13 - 9/11/17, Rye
Yellow-nosed Albatross - 7/4/17, Seavey and Star Islands (previously on the NH hypothetical list)
Brown Booby - 6/10-20/17, Cobbetts Pond, Windham
Western Wood-Pewee -10/1/17, Star Island
MacGillivray's Warbler - 9/4-11/17, Odiorne Point State Park (previously on the NH hypothetical list)
That brings the NH statelist to 418 after the addition of an amazing 10 species over just the last 2 years.
The complete report of the NHRBC's 2017 votes will be published in a future edition of New Hampshire Bird Records.
