Subject: [NHBirds] 2020 Coastal CBC highlights and numbers
The early morning 4F thermometer reading gave way to 28F for this year's coastal NH CBC, 19 December, which covers portions of the following towns: Exeter, Portsmouth, Newfields, Rye, Stratham, Hampton, Seabrook, Kensington, Greenland, Newfields, and Hampton Falls. Many thanks to sector leaders, participants (small numbers to honor CDC guidelines), and feeder watchers.

Highlights
----------
Number of Birds: 27,590
Number of Species: 107

As others have posted, winter finch numbers are good and it was a banner year for the coastal CBC:

Red Crossbill-59
White-winged Crossbill-57
Common Redpoll-111
Pine Siskin-57
Pine Grosbeak-32
Evening Grosbeak-1

This year's impressive Red-breasted Nuthatch turnout yielded a respectable 481. Take a stroll in the wood and you're bound to be treated with little tin horns.

Lingering warblers were Pine and Black-throated Blue, and a count week Snow Goose.
