Subject: [NHBirds] Head's Pond today: Olive-sided Flycatcher and BB Cuckoo(
As I was getting out of my car at the parking lot for the Head's Pond trail
in Hooksett this morning, I heard 2-3 repetitions of "quick, three beers"
nearby. On the trail, I was able to locate the sweet spot that let me see
through the trees to an Olive-sided Flycatcher perched in the sun atop an
evergreen. The "vest" was clearly visible.

Also, I heard and saw a Black-billed Cuckoo near the pond at the end of the
trail and also heard a song as I was walking back to the parking lot.

Here's my species list (most are by ear only):

environmentalist realizes that nature has its pleasures and deserves
respect. A planetist puts the earth ahead of the earthlings." --William
