Spring migration is underway and it's the time of year when many misidentifications occur because observers are unfamiliar with the normal arrival schedule of common species. Some arrive early (Eastern Phoebes are already being reported) and others much later (don't expect to see the similar-looking Eastern Wood-Peewee until May). If you're wondering when you might expect to see the return of your "favorite" bird, check the spring arrival chart in this article from the Spring 2007 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V26%20N1%20Spring%202007.pdf ("Spring Arrival Dates Revisited" begins on page 57).
Other articles in this issue include: Spring Birding in Southwestern New Hampshire: Swanzey, Keene and Surry; Northern Goshawk Research in New Hampshire; Wild Turkey Behavior; field notes from the 2007 spring 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.
