Subject: [NHBirds] Bathing with Ants!
Many of us have watched our local sparrows taking dust baths - fluttering, wiggling and rolling in dry soil or sand. But many other birds also enjoy a good dust bath and that includes the Spruce Grouse. Of course, good luck and timing are needed just to see this secretive bird, and a couple of lucky birders hiking in the White Mountains were fortunate enough to stumble upon a Spruce Grouse as it enjoyed a bath in a most unusual spot! Read all about their encounter in the Summer 2012 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V31%20N2%20Summer%202012.pdf
("Dustbathing and Passive Anting by a Male Spruce Grouse" begins on page 37).
Other articles in this issue include: Birding Mount Kearsarge; Field Trip Report-Mount Sunapee in Search of Boreal Birds; photos and field notes from the 2012 summer season and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!
New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.
