Subject: [NHBirds] Sparrows and waterfowl in Canterbury
This morning we took a three hour walk around Brookford Farm in Canterbury,
and tallied 42 species - probably my highest single eBird checklist of the
year so far.

There was a nice diversity of the expected waterfowl on either the back
wetland or along the river, including a total of 18 Wood Ducks. The
highlights were right near the farm store, where there were SINGING Field
and White-crowned Sparrows!! The latter came in to a playback and turned out
to be an immature, and I suspect both overwintered locally since it's a bit
early for Field and a month early for White-crowned. Sparrows in general
were well-represented, with over 30 songs and a dozen Trees, many of the
latter also singing as they prepare to head north in the next couple of

Other highlights were more Killdeer and phoebes, lots of blackbirds, and a
flock of 29 turkeys. On the downside, our "forest friends" were scarce, with
1 each chickadee and RB Nuthatch, and 3 titmice. Four creepers was the only
exception here, and we missed WBNU entirely.
