I made a short sprint along the coast yesterday (1/22). In anticipation of this year's Superbowl of Birding (not competing this year) I came across a small handful of "3-point" birds. Nothing crazy, but those 3-pointers add up.
Green-winged Teal - female or non-breeding male flushed from the saltmarsh south of Rye Harbor Glaucous Gull - right where it should be Snowy Owl - Hampton Beach jetty. Eventually took off heading south (to Plum Island, no doubt) Lapland Longspur - with Horned Larks and Snow Buntings in Hampton Beach State Park parking lot Snow Bunting - a few dozen in Hampton Beach State Park parking lot Savannah Sparrow - in the dunes of Hampton Beach State Park Swamp Sparrow - along Harbor Rd near Rye Harbor
In the yard last Friday, a Pine Warbler briefly visited the suet feeder before disappearing.
