I spent about 45 minutes at the town beach this morning from 6:15-7:00. The morning sun was tough to contend with & no sign of the bird. I even tried to drive around Arlington Pond but it is not very easy to find good looks at the pond - was wishing I had my kayak and a public boat launch.

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby
Well, my experience at Cobbett's Pond couldn't have been more different from
one of the last posts regarding the booby.



I had to see my elderly father at his retirement home in Providence
yesterday (6/20), and thought I'd give the booby a try on my way home.



That apparently was my mistake. Had I stopped in the morning on my south,
I'd likely have seen it. In the afternoon, it was a no-show.



Oh well.



But the point of this message is to say that while I waited patiently at the
town beach, trying to be as discreet as possible (there were lots of
swimmers, and lots of kids, and there I was in my city clothes), the folks
who noticed me just couldn't have been nicer and friendlier. Many knew just
what I was doing and were curious about the bird, wanting to know where it
came from, and why it was here. Of course I couldn't answer that, but it
was fun to speculate and fun to speak with them.



So, it wasn't all bad. With the help of a lost and confused booby, I think
we gave the people of Windham a very positive avian memory.



Now that she's given us a thrill, let's hope she's winging her way back to
the tropics where she belongs.

Subject: [NHBirds] Booby - NO
I stopped by Cobbetts Pond briefly on my lunch and in the 10 minutes I was
there I did not see the Booby. I don't see any reports after 11am yesterday
(6/20).

Interestingly, someone on Arlington Pond in Salem mentioned to me that they
might have seen the Booby circling over the north east section of the pond
late yesterday. This is another pond with minimum to no access to the
public, with lots of houses/decks to pick through.

I will update the group if there are any updates worth sharing. Any
positive or negative updates from Cobbetts today or late yesterday would be
helpful.

Subject: [NHBirds] Re: viewing the Booby warning
Maybe so, but 95% of the time the bird is not even visible from the road -
so let's save the logistics and just respect the locals (especially if
they're getting annoyed). Not to mention that road has always been
dangerous to walk or bike on. The beach is much better place to view the
bird and has been made accessible for birders to see it. We're lucky the
bird chose this spot and that the town of Windham is even allowing us at
the beach. No need to push it.

Subject: [NHBirds] viewing the Booby warning
I just received a call from two birders at the Booby stakeout - apparently
as they were walking up the road to see if the Booby was visible from the
street, they were heckled by a neighbor passing by in a truck and
threatened to call the police, insinuating that they were going to trespass
(which wasn't the case).

Just wanted to pass this news along for any others visiting. The town of
Windham has been extremely accommodating to us birders allowing so many of
us to view from the beach (which is private), so please keep the residents
in mind.

I would suggest viewing from the town beach to avoid any further conflict.

While hiking up the Falling Waters Trail on The Franconia Ridge yesterday to survey pipits for this year’s Presidential Range pipit survey, I heard, at about 4000 feet in the upper edge of the boreal forest zone, what sounded very like a singing fox sparrow. Unfortunately I could not see the beast, but I am quite confident that it was indeed a FOSP. Also about were several singing Blackpolls, maybe 10 singing Swainsons thrushes.

Subject: [NHBirds] Ashuelot Headwaters Forest/Lempster Town Forest
The Ashuelot Headwaters Forest and the adjacent Lempster Town forest are
turning out to be a great SW NH place to find species typical of more
northern forests. Today I met up with Dylan Jackson to see if we could
find the Yellow-bellied Flycatchers that have been inhabiting the bog in
the Ashuelot Headwaters Forest for the last few years. Unfortunately, we
haven't located the flycatchers yet this year, but we did have a singing
Swainson's Thrush in the Lempster Town Forest. It was only a short ways in
from Mountain Rd. opposite the Ashuelot Headwaters trailhead sign. I had
heard a singing Swainson's Thrush in the same area last year with Pam Hunt,
but it was in July and we thought it might be an early dispersal
nonbreeder. Apparently it liked the neighborhood and came back this year
during breeding season. It was definitely territorial as it quickly
responded to a playback (I wanted to make sure it was a Swainson's call I
was hearing, so I played it on my phone on a low volume). Also had many of
the usual breeders such as N. Waterthrush, Canada W., Blackburnian W.,
Myrtle W., Nashville W., etc. Great-crested Flycatchers are hard to come
by up here but I had two this morning, one at Duck Pond (LTF) and one
at the twin bridges (AHF).

It is now (8:15) perched on the porch railing at the usual home. The homeowner does not really want more photographers there and has put police tape across his walkway.

New Hampshire Audubon Seacoast Chapter


Wednesday June 14, 2017 7:00 pm (note time change) Program - The Messenger-DVD documentary





For thousands of years, songbirds were regarded by mankind as messengers from the gods. Today, birds have woven inextricably into the fabric of our environment and are vanishing at an alarming rate due to threats such as climate change, pesticides and more. As scientists, activists, and bird enthusiasts investigate this phenomenon, amazing secrets of the bird world come to light for the first time in the acclaimed and visually thrilling documentary "The Messenger". Find out what's killing our songbirds and what can be done about it




All are welcome to attend our Wednesday June 14, 2017 program which is free of charge at the Seacoast Science Center (wheelchair accessible), Odiorne Point State Park, 570 Ocean Boulevard, Rye NH (click here for Google maps: http://goo.gl/maps/mfnQT ). Note time changes. Refreshments are at 6:30 PM. Meetings begin at 7:00 PM. Entrance doors will be locked at 7:15 PM. For more information see our web site at http://www.seacoastchapter.org/programs . Cancellations will be announced on http://www.seacoastchapter.org/programs and this Google group.




Make any donation to the Seacoast Chapter in the tin on the food table and pick up a NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter sticker as a thank you!

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby still present




In case people are wondering, a group of us from NH Audubon when down to Windham this afternoon and saw the booby. It mostly perched on the deck railing, but did take flight in response to a passing boat. While it was away, it apparently dove a few times according to a guy on the beach.

Note also that if the bird sticks around into this coming weekend, the issue of parking might become more problematic, especially with school about to let out for the summer. NH Audubon has been in touch with the town and we'll probably come up with some sort of plan to accommodate birders, so watch this space for details.

A Magnificent Frigatebird has been wandering around off the northern New
England coastline and undoubtedly has passed through NH air space.
Firsts seen off Stellwagen Bank east of Boston on Saturday, it was seen
YESTERDAY off Prout's Neck in Maine and likely the same bird was
reported at about noon TODAY AT SALISBURY BEACH STATE RESERVATION in
Massachusetts.

If anyone has time to combat beach goers, get out to Hampton and
Seabrook to see if it wanders back up in our direction!

There are ZERO records for Magnificent Frigatebird in New Hampshire!

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon dedicated pelagic trip (BOWHEAD WHALE!!! etc)
NH Audubon sponsored an all day pelagic trip yesterday aboard the
"Granite State" out of Rye Harbor, NH. We cruised northeast directly up
to the "Three Fingers" at the northern corner of Jeffrey's Ledge in
Maine where we had the highlights of the trip with dolphins, several
whales and a few gannets and a couple of shearwaters. We then cruised
south, following the ledge. It was a "desert" for birds for much of the
route. Barely a gannet or gull for much of the time, but we did manage
to chum in a nice group of Wilson's Storm-Petrels. We finished by
traveling west through "Scantum" where there were several Fin Whales and
then touring the Isles of Shoals where we saw the wonderful tern colony
on White and Seavey Islands, the Cormorant rookery on Lunging Island and
a rare American Oystercatcher on Lunging Island. Thanks to Jon Woolf
for organizing this trip, to Captain Pete Reynolds, and to whale
biologists Melanie and Jonathan who thought "something doesn't look
right about that Right Whale"!

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Sunny - 98F on the mainland, but nice and cool offshore!!!
SW winds 5-10 mph. Seas about 1-3'
Birders - 34

Common Eider - Lots of birds around the Isles of Shoals. Several
creches of baby fluff balls.
Common Loon - 7 inside of Isles of Shoals. Including group of 6
together on water.
Great Shearwater - 2 uncooperative birds on Jeffrey's Ledge in Maine
Sooty Shearwater - 1 close fly-by on Jeffrey's Ledge in Maine
Wilson's Storm-Petrel - 54 total birds. All out on Jeffrey's Ledge.
Many came in for oil slick we put out.
Northern Gannet - 24 total. Mostly 1 year old birds. At least one
adult or near adult.
Double-crested Cormorant - Nice views of nesting rookery on Lunging Island
AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHER - 1 on Lunging Island. This species has raised
eyebrows recently with repeated sightings on the Isles of Shoals. This
species has not been documented as nesting in New Hampshire (or at the
Isles of Shoals), but it is possible they may be attempting to nest on
Lunging Island.
Herring Gull - Nests easily seen on Square Rock.
Great Black-backed Gull - Scattered low numbers of gulls offshore. Mixed
between Herring and Great Black-backed Gulls.
Common Tern - About 6 offshore on Jeffrey's Ledge and Old Scantum. Many
around the nesting colony on White & Seavey Islands. No Roseates or
Arctics picked out.
Black Guillemot - Perhaps 4 total around the Isles of Shoals.
Chimney Swift - Very odd sighting of 2 birds well offshore near
Jeffrey's Ledge. I only got brief looks at these birds, but I believe
this is what they were.

Marine Mammals
------------------------
Fin Whale - Roughly 10+ individual whales. Some nice close views
showing the asymmetric colored jaw pattern. And notably, one individual
that repeatedly FLUKED (rare for Fin Whales).
Humpback Whale - 2 including "Wigwam" and "Pinball" the often seen
female Humpback whale first reported in 1989!!
Minke Whale - Perhaps 3 or 4
Atlantic White-sided Dolphin - 20 to 25 in one pod.

and

BOWHEAD WHALE - THE STAR OF THE TRIP!!!! Very rare species that is
generally found ONLY in arctic waters. A circumpolar species, it spends
much of it's life lingering around the pack ice, and is therefore almost
NEVER seen from anywhere in the United States south of Alaska.
Superficially, very similar to the Right Whale, the Bowhead used to be
in the same genus, but is now in a different genus. Like the Right
Whale, it lacks a dorsal fin, and has a dark tail and it flukes. Unlike
the Right Whale, it has a smooth forehead with no callosities and a
larger bump on the top of the head.

This individual was originally identified as a Right Whale, but after a
dive or two, the whale biologists NEW something was odd. We finally
confirmed this sighting as a Bowhead Whale. More than likely, this is
the same individual whale that has been seen very sporadically in the
northeastern US as follows:

March 2012 - Bowhead Whale spotted east of Orleans, MA by plane during
aerial survey of Right Whales. Later seen during summer 2012 by
researchers in the Bay of Fundy. THIS IS THE FIRST MODERN RECORD of
this species south of the Arctic.
April 11, 2014 - Bowhead Whale spotted in Cape Cod bay in MA by plane
during aerial survey of Right Whales.
April 14, 2017 - Bowhead Whale spotted in Great South Channel in Ma by
plane during aerial survey of Right Whales.

And now......June 12, 2017. Seen near the northern tip of Jeffrey's
Ledge near "the Fingers". East of York County, Maine. Some photos and
video:

Many thanks to Jon for coordinating a great trip on the ocean, to Steve for calling out the critters, and to Pete Reynolds and crew for another fantastic voyage. Birds were a little tough but the Cetacea show rocked!

BOWHEAD WHALE!! mind-blowing encounter with this northern (way-y-y-y northern) critter.

Fin, Minke, and Humpback whales, and a happy pod of doplhins made for a great time with friends and animals.

A quick spin to Windham found the Brown Booby in her little spot. She is a cutie!

I saw the Brown Booby at Cobbets Pond in Windham, NH this afternoon.
It is a life bird for me.
There were about 10 birders looking at the bird who was very
cooperative sitting on the top of the deck rail.
Thanks all for the info to see this bird.***
I parked in the town Beach parking area and no one said anything.

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby stakeout hot spot
For eBird users,
There is now a stakeout Hot Spot for the Brown Booby to report your sighting. It would be great if everyone could use it to submit their eBird reports so all reports are under the same location and easy to find. If you have already entered the sighting you can easily merge your personal location with the Hotspot, so please take a minute to do so. The instructions are below . If you have other checklists from this location, and you only want to merge the checklist with this rarity, there are also specific instructions for this listed.

Thanks!
Becky Suomala
NH eBird and New Hampshire Bird Records
www.nhbirdrecords.org<http://www.nhbirdrecords.org>

TO MERGE A LOCATION:
1. Click on "My EBird" at the top right of any page
2. Click on "Manage my locations" on the list on the right
3. Find the location that you want to merge
4. At the far right of the site entry, click "edit".
5. This should pull up a map with your location at the center and several round "radio buttons" above the map next to the words: Rename, Move, Merge.
6. Click the "Merge" button and pre-existing hot spots should appear on the map as red "pins" and your personal locations as blue "pins".
7. Click on the hot spot you wish to merge your location WITH (your location will be indicated by a green and red symbol). The name of the hot spot will appear at the top of the map indicating how many checklists you are merging with that spot.
8. We highly recommend that you check the box next to "delete after merging" - this will not delete your data or the merged location, it will simply delete that original location so you won't be tempted to use it again.
9. Click on the square box labeled "Merge"
10. eBird will ask if you are sure. Double check before you click "Yes" as this action can't be undone!

All your records for the old location will get relabeled in the database as the pre-existing hot spot. This is the location that will now appear in "my locations." You can always rename a hot spot within your "my locations" list, but that won't change the name in the eBird database.

TO CHANGE A SPECIFIC CHECKLIST LOCATION TO A HOT SPOT LOCATION:
1. Click on "My EBird" at the top right of any page
2. Click on "Manage my Checklists" on the list on the right
3. Find the observation that you want to change
4. At the far right of the site entry, click "View or edit".
5. Click "edit location" on the right next to the location name.
6. Click on Find it on a Map and enter NH, then Zoom to town.
7. Zoom in until you find the appropriate Hot Spot
8. Click on the Hot Spot and then Continue.
9. Your Checklist will appear with the new location.

Subject: [NHBirds] Optimistic Chipping Sparrow Building Nest in Mulberry Tree With 4000 Ripening Berries
Normally the Chipping Sparrows in the yard nest in the tall white pine
trees, for lack of small evergreen in which to do so. But they are
afflicted by cowbirds parasitism and so may be seeking alternatives.

It was with great dismay and disbelief yesterday that I noticed a female
Chipping Sparrow constructing a nest in our white mulberry tree (Morus
alba) that has about 4000 ripening mulberries. in a week or two the tree
will be a madhouse of waxwings, robins, catbirds, tanagers and the
clearly-not-a-vegan red-bellied woodpecker. We’ll have to see how it goes.

I made it down to see the BROWN BOOBY in Windham this afternoon. As earlier mentioned, the bird was extremely cooperative. It was perched on the corner of the roof and just sat there the entire time I was there. I took some photos and a video of this awesome state first. The following is the link to the album.
https://flickr.com/photos/103784740@N03/sets/72157684850836496

Huge thank you first to the homeowner John. He is exactly the type of person we as Birders want rare birds to visit. Very welcoming, accommodating and attentive enough to know that this bird must've been something special. Also a big thanks to my friend Joe Bourget for getting the word out to me to relay to listserv.

Finally, I swung by Newmarket to see the MISSISSIPPI KITES there. I found one bird sitting on the nest but never saw the other bird. The one in the nest didn't really move much so it wasn't the best viewing. I'll have to come back when the egg(s) hatch.

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby update
As Steve clearly stated Re the Brown Booby, the owner up the road (31 Cobbetts Pond) is more than glad to share close up/roof top views of the brown bobby- but it is best to park at the beach (assuming we are not keeping beach goers out - it does say permit required) . Then walk up the Road.

The man who “found the bird” is John Henry Kleschinsky and he didn’t know what it was but knew it was unusual. He called his sister who suggested the Facebook and Mass Birder Facebook postings to get the word out (he said he had a hard time finding such a page for NH Audubon- then went on to call NH Audubon (I suspect leaving a message on the weekend). He is delighted to share the bird, but parking is a huge issue. (John even left a pitcher of cold water out for the birders enjoying the bird.)

Thanks to Dylan for passing this along to the rest of us! and thanks to John who at knew it was rare enough to share!

Subject: [NHBirds] Pawtuckaway State Park
Jane and I spent a very nice morning today at Pawtuckaway State Park.
We were hoping for Cerulean Warbler or Acadian Flycatcher, but no luck
with either despite a lot of searching. We went on two long hikes
including a trail I hadn't been on before. Highlight for us was two
Yellow-billed Cuckoos. We celebrated our exercise walk with ice
cream.....then we got the booby email!

Total list below. Not systematic survey, but comprehensive. We were
careful not to double-count and it gives a relative idea of what species
are most conspicuous at this date. Most birds were heard only.

Pawtuckaway SP, Nottingham/Deerfield, Rockingham, New Hampshire, US
Jun 11, 2017 6:52 AM - 11:20 AM
Protocol: Traveling
15.0 mile(s)
Comments: Just about complete coverage of Reservation Road, Tower
Road, and Round Pond Road. Two long walks including walk out toward
North Mountain and connecting back over to Round Pond Road and back.
Another walk to boulder field and around wetland past climbing cliffs to
Round Pond and back along road to Hemlock grove. Nice warm morning.
Winds increasing by 10 AM.
56 species

Wood Duck 12 Mother with 11 babies
Turkey Vulture 5 In one group near Round Pond.
Broad-winged Hawk 1
Mourning Dove 6
Yellow-billed Cuckoo 2 Highlight of the morning for us. One bird
(female?) giving cow-cow call, and male giving standard song from
opposite side of trail.
Barred Owl 1 Distant calling bird. Possibly in response to my hoots.
Ruby-throated Hummingbird 1
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 2
Downy Woodpecker 2
Hairy Woodpecker 1
Eastern Wood-Pewee 16
Least Flycatcher 3 Seems very low for park. Perhaps due to
changing habitat in park. I only have one other (very high count) from
Pawtuckaway SP of 19 on 6/2/96.
Eastern Phoebe 5
Great Crested Flycatcher 1
Eastern Kingbird 2
Yellow-throated Vireo 4
Blue-headed Vireo 5

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby - Additional information
Please be aware that it is BEST TO SCAN FROM THE BEACH ONLY. DO NOT
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PARK ALONG THIS ROAD. The police are paying
attention and there may be issues.

The bird should be easily seen with binoculars or a spotting scope from
the beach. But it is difficult to pick out as it blends in. Again, scan
the roof tops along the left hand shoreline looking off from the beach.
In the vicinity of 4 +/- American Flags.

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Booby in Windham!!!!
MANY THANKS to Dylan Jackson for getting the word out on this Brown
Booby that was reported on Facebook on Cobbett's Pond in Windham. We got
great looks from the town beach with binoculars and scope.

When we got there, we went right to the Windham Town Beach, located at
45 Cobbett's Pond Road. This is located on the far south portion of
Cobbett's Pond. I'm guessing that this is a private beach for Windham
town residents; however, they were nice to let us in. And Jane and I
let many, many local beach goers see the bird through our scope which
were set up in between beach blankets, literally on the beach. They
seemed to be OK with birders looking from here, but be aware, I'm not
sure about the situation.

We first saw the bird in the far distance soaring over the middle of the
pond and occasionally plunge diving. We didn't see it catch any fish,
but can't be sure. The bird eventually, flew right at us and then
LANDED ON THE FLAT ROOF of a residence right near the beach at about
1:00 PM!!! Apparently this the home of the person who posted to
Facebook. The bird remained there for a long time.....and I hear it is
still there as of about 3:15 PM. We were able to walk a short distance
up the road and get point-blank views at eye level!!!! The home owner
was very nice and proud of his bird....I didn't get his name. He is at
#31 Cobbett's Pond Road. YOU CAN NOT PARK HERE!!!! Parking is
problematic, but perhaps the beach will be OK for parking. Scan from
the beach along the rooftops to the left along the shoreline carefully
just to the right of one of the American flags. If it is on the roof,
you can walk up the road for close views from the road.

To the best of my understanding, the bird was first seen at about noon
yesterday. I'm not sure if had been seen any earlier than this.

This is a FIRST RECORD FOR THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE!!! With recent
strange records all around the eastern U.S., this is not a great
surprise, and we've certainly been on the lookout. But it was expected
ON THE COAST, and NOT from Cobbett's Pond in Windham!!!! A very bizarre
location.

The bird is visible from the town beach still.

Please note the roads around the pond do not allow for parking and birders
should NOT be parking along the road.

A few birders have been parking in areas they shouldn't be and this is
upsetting the local residents. Please don't ruin it for everyone!

Newington malls, runoff pond outside Macy's, Green Heron nested in the oak that is leaning out over pond. Mall security will ask you to leave. I check from road side of pond. This bird (mother on eggs) is very vulnerable. She knows you are watching. Crows and other scavanges are watching also. Be respectful.

Subject: [NHBirds] A new theory on how birds fuel long migrations
There is a very interesting article on the physiology of bird feeding
before and after migration in the Portland Press-Herald by Dr. Herb Wilson,
who teaches ornithology and biology at Colby College. It cites the work of
Dr. Scott McWilliams and his students at the University of Rhode Island
whose experiments have shown that "In preparation for migration, a bird
enlarges and lengthens its gut to allow it to feed more rapidly and put on
weight" and that a bird shuts down its gut during migration, diverting the
energy produced as the gut returns to its normal size to be used for wing
flapping.

http://www.pressherald.com/2017/06/11/herb-wilson-birds-best-off-following-gut-instinct-during-migration/

I think some may find it interesting reading as it also explains why some
birds linger in spots while migrating.

Subject: [NHBirds] Merlins
I'm planting potatoes, Yukon Gold, when I hear a "THWACK" and look up to see a Merlin looking like its recovering from a tumble and a crow not far behind it. I imagined the Crow having attached from above. A minute later I hear the same sound but only see a crow fly out over the oak tree. I have a chair on the edge of the mill pond and looking across a field. I take a break hoping to see feathers fly. I am not disappointed. The Crow is flying into a large, shapely oak in the neighbors yards and appears to be after the something. Two Merlins fly out the far side of the oak and then there are three Crows. They are out of sight more than not but for 5 minutes the five are aggressively chasing each other. One moment the Merlins appear to be on the attack, the next the Crows appear to be chasing the Merlins. I think there is a crow nest in a small stand of tall pines two houses over and wonder if the Merlins threatened the newborn. While this show has my attention the first Kingfisher of the year flies across the field.

Subject: [NHBirds] Concord Airport Highlights
This afternoon I birded at few locations around the Concord Airport. I started at the southern end of the runway then stopped by the terminal before ending at the Karner Blue Easement on Chenell Drive. I also made a quick visit to the pond outside the Steeplegate Mall. The following are the highlights:

PRAIRIE WARBLER 4: Two at the southern end of the runway and two at the Karner Blue Easement.
GRASSHOPPER SPARROW 3: Two at the southern end of the runway and one along the perimeter fence of the airport at the Karner Blue Easement.
VESPER SPARROW 1: In the same location at the Karner Blue Easement as the Grasshopper Sparrow. I saw this bird in this location last year as well.
EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILL 2: Started singing at the Karner Blue Easement at 8:37pm. Both birds only sang for about 30 seconds before falling silent. I left before they sang again.
COMMON NIGHTHAWK 1: Heard the distinct "peent" of a Nighthawk towards the airport at the Karner Blue Easement coincidentally when the Whip-poor-wills were singing. Unfortunately I never saw the bird as it was behind a stand of trees between me and the airport.
HORNED LARK 0: The breeding birds here continue to elude me. Still haven't pin pointed where they've been seen from.

Finally, I found two of my long overdue FOY GREEN HERONS in the pond at the Steeplegate Mall.

One last note: If you go to the Karner Blue Easement be prepared for ticks. I've never had so many on me. Thinking ahead, I brought a lighter and burned easily over 20 off my pants including two Eastern Black-legged (Deer) Ticks! I'm back at home and still finding them so watch yourself.

Odds and ends from along the coast and Great Bay this morning.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/

Surf Scoter 13 lingering from scattered locations.
White-winged Scoter 4 lingering from scattered locations.
Black Scoter 17 lingering from scattered locations.
BUFFLEHEAD 1 Rare summering bird continues from pool south of
Odiorne. This is my FIRST ever June or July record. My previous late
date is 5/29/15.
Red-throated Loon 1 lingering at Odiorne.
Common Loon 5
Red-necked Grebe 1 continues from Seal Rocks.
Great Blue Heron 8 on flats in Hampton harbor.
Great Egret 53. VERY HIGH count of birds for date. My previous high
June count is 18! All on flats in Hampton Harbor at low tide early this
AM. No Snowy Egrets here however.
Black-crowned Night-Heron 1 adult with other herons in Hampton Harbor.
MISSISSIPPI KITE 1+ continues in neighborhood around Great Bay
Discovery Center in Greenland. Today perched in hard-to-see perch tree
just above the old Depot office building. There have been as many as 3
(last weekend) in this area.
Osprey - STADLER IS A FATHER! The nest at the end of Cross Beach Road
has a VERY SMALL baby head (at least one) poking up. Perhaps born in
the last day or two.
Semipalmated Sandpiper 10 lingering south of Odiorne.
Short-billed Dowitcher 1 lingering south of Odiorne.
Bonaparte's Gull 2 immature birds at Odiorne.
Roseate Tern 5 with Common Terns at Odiorne.
Common Tern 225 Huge flock of terns at Odiorne. NONE OR HARDLY ANY
anywhere else on seacoast. NONE in Hampton harbor.
FISH CROW 2 CONFIRMED NESTING near bath houses at Odiorne. Thanks to
Kyle Wilmarth for this one. He saw two birds at potential nest 3 days
ago. This morning, one bird was clearly incubating and was fed twice by
its mate while we visited. Appears that it just started incubating.
PURPLE MARTIN 20+ We were extremely happy to see this huge flock of
martins at the nest gourds off Cross Beach Road in Seabrook. We had
heard that many 5+ had died this spring so far during the cold weather
of May and June. And this was PRIOR to the mega-cold weather from
earlier this week. 20+ is an excellent count for this date. Many were
gathering nesting material along the road. ONE BIRD WAS BANDED ORANGE
OVER WHITE on left leg. Does anyone know where this bird came from?

Hi

Late post - Found a beautiful brilliant male orange scarlet tanager while
walking the Derry rail trail area that passes way too close to rte 93 - not
the best place to bird by ear!! Found him on a trail off the main trail on
Thursday the 8th. Haven't seen one for many years. Tried to see if he was
still around yesterday but road work on rte 93 was so close and deafening.
I thought the equipment was coming for me!!

Subject: [NHBirds] 2017 Results: 7 Barred Owl Nests in Hampstead, 5 Duck Nests in Yard
Again this year there were seven pairs of Barred Owls that nested
successfully in nest boxes placed around Hampstead.

Six duck pairs attempted to nest in boxes on our one acre lot and five
succeeded: three Wood Duck, two Hooded Merganser. Only one duckling (a
Hoodie) was observed to be captured by the owls. One Wood Duck nesting was
thwarted by a gray squirrel after the duck had laid six eggs, but the
squirrel paid for its sins by becoming owl food.

Subject: [NHBirds] Peregrine and Chimney Swift
While driving down Main Street this evening, I spotted a Peregrine Falcon
swooping upward onto the steeple of St. Patrick's Church on Spring Street.
I swung by Spring St. and pulled over into the (packed) Superior Court
parking lot to quickly snap a couple of photos and see if I could identify
the individual.

It was our territorial male, ("Monster".) Good to see him! I was
live-parked in a handicapped spot so quickly left and was starting to leave
the driveway when I spotted a small bird lying in the middle of the
driveway--a Chimney Swift.

The little bird was still warm and bore the characteristic "snip" to the
back of the neck, the Peregrine's coup-de-grace.

Many Pigeons and Woodcocks, Flickers and Mourning Doves, Robins and
Flickers have fallen prey to the Nashua Peregrines throughout the past
years, but I have never seen one go after such a small (and agile) bird.

I could not stay to see if "Monster" flew down to retrieve his prey.

An addendum to my nest query: as I look more carefully at my photos, the nest isn’t lined with mud — just coarse grass.

Subject: [NHBirds] Miscellaneous sightings this week
A few miscellaneous sightings from this week...

I stopped at Chapman's Landing on the way to work yesterday, and saw
a large raptor - not large enough to be an eagle, but still pretty
large - on the nest platform there. Making out details was tough
against the bright sky, but I'm pretty sure it was an osprey. Could
the osprey that used to nest there be thinking about trying it now,
after the eagles left? Isn't early June very late to start a successful nest?

This afternoon after work I went by Pease Tradeport and stopped at
the pull-off by the old gate of Grafton Road. I'm pretty sure I
heard at least two Meadowlarks singing from somewhere out in the grass.

An evening look along the coast a couple of days ago found several
terns - probably Common Terns from the White/Seavey Island colony -
fishing near Odiorne Point.

And has anyone else noticed an explosion of House Sparrows this
year? At Massabesic Center, house sparrows have taken over the
nest-boxes in the fields near the Center buildings. Where the skies
over the fields were full of Tree Swallows in past years, this year
there seem to be only a handful of swallow pairs.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wells, Maine - King Rails mating!
Hi all,Apologies that this isn't a NH bird, but Jim Sparrell still said it was worth posting, as it's in the far south of Maine. There's been a continuing king rail on Eldridge Rd. in Wells and tonight I went (for the fourth attempt) to see it. I met Jim and Katie Towler there, and as we were talking it emerged from the reeds only about ~15 ft in front of us. After preening, a female flew in and immediately the male mated with her. The male hung around a bit and the female returned to the grasses. I happened to be filming the whole thing! Jim's got great photos too which he will hopefully post, but if anyone is interested in the video: https://flic.kr/p/VCZ1H4This was an incredible experience for me, as it's a life bird and a rare one at that, and this suggests they're here to stay and raise young!
-Molly JacobsonMerrimack 
(P.S. - The reason I haven't been/won't be posting to the google group this summer; I am staying in Wells for an internship with the Rachel Carson NWR, I work with the piping plovers and least terns up there. But rest assured I'm finding some great birds! Just got lifer upland sandpiper and eastern meadowlark as well today. Come find me on the beach if you're in the area!)

Subject: [NHBirds] Finally, a Black-throated Blue
It has been a nearly month since I expected to hear a Black-throated Blue Warbler singing here. This morning, I finally heard one in the birches by the house.
Where were they???

Also, finally saw an Eastern Bluebird in town on Monday, another seemingly a month late.

An over-mature aspen, full of dens made by sapsuckers and flickers, has become a Wood Duck nest. I observed an entry a couple weeks ago, after seeing her fly over the house several times. Should be jump day soon, if not already.

Also singing this morning: Red-eyed Vireo, Wood Thrush, Veery, BT Green Warbler Chestnut-sided Warbler, RB Grosbeaks, Purple Finches… Cold and wet after another 1.5” of rain.

Subject: [NHBirds] RFI: Pondicherry NWR

Hi all,

My finance and I will be visiting southern NH in July and making a two day
trip to the White Mtns for birding. We wanted to stop at Pondicherry in the
morning "on the way" to Mt Washington but have never been there and were
hoping for some advice (off-list is fine). Seems like most trips are in the
2-5 mile range and the hike to Little Cherry Pond, where most of the
boreal-type species seem to be, is about 4 miles roundtrip. We will have
our 5 year old with us and I was wondering if a) any part of the trail is
doable with a beefy stroller (I read that the trail from airport rd to
Waumbeck Junction is "wide and flat.") or b) if folks could recommended a
shorter loop that would give us a fair chance of seeing our target birds?
The 5 year old birds with us regularly and can typically walk about 1.5 - 2
miles. Also, is there access from 115A or is the only trailhead on airport
rd? Our targets for this area are Mourning Warbler, Lincoln's Sparrow, or
maybe Black-backed Woodpecker if possible.

Alternatively, are we better off just hiking to Waumbek Junction and
looking for Mourning Warbler there and skipping Little Cherry (since we
will be in the mtns anyway later), and then birding the airport grasslands
and marsh? I also imagine the bugs are pretty bad this time of year and
might preclude a longer hike.

Thanks so much in advance,

Frank

I decided to return early this morning to see if perhaps they were not on the nest yesterday because of all the people later in the day. Continues to be no least terns, I fear that they probably abandoned the nest. I am disgusted to see all the footprints underneath the protection ropes and in fact watch the woman further up the beach walk right up the middle of another roped off area.

Subject: [NHBirds] Nottingham and Lee 6/7
Birders,

I've been walking the trail behind Nottingham town hall sporadically this spring when my boys have been having martial arts classes in the hall. I've built my list up to 56 species in a little more than a month (and they're up to yellow belts!), with such goodies as Winter Wren, Evening Grosbeak, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and Broad-winged Hawk (today's best addition to the list), plus 11 species of warblers, which isn't bad given that it has usually been 50 and rainy, plus I missed about 10 days in May.


On the way back to Durham this evening I stopped at the Gile Road marsh in Lee and was immediately greeted by two Virginia Rails grunting at me and/or each other. I then heard a peent that sounded like a Nighthawk, but I couldn't locate the bird. This seems fairly far south for that species in June, but I'm not sure what else it could have been since it didn't sound right for a woodcock (and are they peenting now anyway?).


And as a side note, Moore Fields had singing Bobolinks and Savannah Sparrows this morning. And 3 Fish Crows were in downtown Durham.

I did an overnight visit around the Nelson, NH area to bird/photograph a

observed/photographed the feeding behavior at heron nests at my arrival
plus early next morning. Photographed a pair of Red-breasted Nuthatches
feeding their chicks, another first for me. Other species seen and
photographed include: Red-winged Blackbird, Eastern Kingbird, Great-crested
Flycatcher, a cooperative Gray catbird, a Cooper’s hawk up high in blue
skies. A beaver at work, two owls calling each other from far away in the
morning. What could possibly top this trip? A bright male Scarlet Tanager

Subject: [NHBirds] Little Blue Heron, Brookline
There was a Little Blue Heron (1st spring) in the Lancy Brook wetland at
5:15 pm today, the wetland is just below the Brookline Airport. Best
viewing is from the dead end road (Lancy Brook Road). The LBHE was still
present when I left at 5:40 pm.

This picture was shared by a member of the NH birds Facebook page
yesterday. It's not the best quality, but it's getting suggested ID's of
Coopers Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, and Crested Caracara. Interesting enough
that I thought I would share, especially in case it's the latter.

Subject: [NHBirds] Whippoorwill (duo) heard at Massabesic
I was hiking in the evening around sunset on Fri 6/2 and heard not one, but
two whippoorwills. I hike there a lot and this was my first hearing them.
Are they common or uncommon around the lake?

Subject: [NHBirds] The Forts, the coast, and finale in Hollis. Sunday
Michael and I got an early start (0400) with hopes of finding some remaining warblers at Odiorne, and vicinity today.

It was a bit cool to start but bright and sunny when we hit to coast. Unfortunately the activity was not as anticipated.

We did however after much searching find the previously missed Thick Billed Murre off the end of the park (as described by Susan Wrisley and Jenna Pettipas the day prior), but trying to get a shot across the water was more than challenging and disheartening. So we entertained ourselves with the local nesting birds in the area. Phoebes on nest, Black Capped Chickadees hollowing out a stump, and later at Fort Constitution an able pair of Cliff Swallows building their nest (was that area abandoned last year?)
Along the trails of Odiorne we found a very large grey wing on the ground (not sure ID, suspect gull sp), the dinner, no doubt, of a raptor.

At Fort Stark we were able to get better shots of the same Murre (still not great and now closer to Odiorne). And from Ft Constitution, a very pale red throated loon.

We did not see much else along the coast remarkable (other than the summer crowds returning) except for 8 mute swan on Eel Pond.
Back home we did a swing through Hollis, hoping to catch up with Chris McPherson's Olive Sided Flycatcher of the prior day. Initially no luck, but had Green Heron, 4 Great Blue Herons on nest, and as the evening rain came in with an increase in bug activity, much more activity -including the Olive sided flycatcher. All in all an excellent day.

Subject: [NHBirds] Watts Sanctuary and Copps Pond
This morning, Zeke Cornell and I headed to Huntress Bridge Road in
Effingham which goes through NH Audubon's Watts Sanctuary. It's a bog
with some species that you might expect to be farther north. We drove
Huntress Bridge and Rt. 153 that borders the west side of the bog and
tallied 47 species, including 14 species of warblers all of which were
singing on territory.

Highlights were:

Red Crossbill 2 flying over

Olive-sided Flycatcher 1

Alder Flycatcher 6

Canada Warbler 4

Magnolia Warbler 4

Northern Waterthrush 5

Nashville Warbler 4

Singing Purple Finch


We then headed to Copps Pond in Tuftonborough. After watching from the
boat launch, we then found the path to a viewing platform. The path
starts on Rt. 109A and has a small sign but no obvious parking so we
missed it initially. There was lots of activity including a family of
otters - 2 adults and 3 young.

Bird Highlights:

Pied-billed Grebe 3

Northern Harrier, 1 apparent female that was hunting over the marsh -
worth watching for possible nesting

Wood Duck female with 10 chicks

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Big Day - 141 Species (TWO King Eiders, THICK-BILLED MURRE, Caspian Tern, BB Woodpecker, etc.)
Jane and I attempted a rare JUNE Big Day. Most of our attempts are
during the 3rd or 4th week of May. We figured that we'd give it a shot
for June. A long and fun day. Starting before dawn in Concord with a
wonderful chorus of Whip-poor-wills, then continuing on to Airport Marsh
and Pondicherry, then Trudeau Road bog and then the long drive back
south to the Concord airport, areas of Newmarket and Durham, the Pease
Tradeport and then driving south on the coast to finish the day.

We ended with 141 species. Surprisingly few shorebirds and
herons/egrets. But we "cleaned house" with lingering sea ducks!

2:30 AM (leaving house) - 8:00 PM (finishing in Seabrook)
Partly cloudy, 44F - 73F
Calm with increasing SSE - SSW winds late in afternoon.

Canada Goose
Mute Swan - 8 (!) on Eel Pond. All adults. This is the most I've seen
in a few years at a given spot in NH. I thought we had nearly gotten
rid of them.
Wood Duck
American Black Duck
Mallard
GREEN-WINGED TEAL - One male at Airport Marsh
KING EIDER - TWO at Little Boar's Head. There are a TON of Common
Eiders along the coast right now with adults, sub-adults, and fluff
balls. We searched exhaustively for the King Eider up along the coast
in Rye, but came up empty. Then we got to Little Boar's Head in North
Hampton, and one of the first birds I got on was a FEMALE King Eider!
Excitedly, I got it for Jane as it swam side by side with a female
Common Eider. As we were celebrating this bird, I scanned and there was
THE IMMATURE MALE King Eider!!!! Again, swimming and diving....with a
young male Common Eider!
Common Eider - A ton of birds all along the coast. Fluffball chicks
everywhere as far south as Bicentennial Park in Hampton.
Surf Scoter - A few on coast
White-winged Scoter - A couple on coast
Black Scoter - Still a fair number of scoters on coast. Mostly Black
Scoters.
Hooded Merganser
Common Merganser - Female at Airport Marsh
Red-breasted Merganser - Female at Little Boar's Head.
Wild Turkey - Only about 3. All up north. Two ON SKI SLOPES of Cannon
Mountain!
Common Loon - Including one on Airport Marsh. About 8 on coast.
PIED-BILLED GREBE - One adult at Surry Lane Marsh in Durham.

CASPIAN TERN - Distant bird flying north off Concord Point.
Roseate Tern - At least two along shoreline in Rye.
Common Tern
THICK-BILLED MURRE - 1 bird continues. Today from Fort Stark in New
Castle. Remarkably late bird and my first ever June record. According
to Keith & Fox, there is one other June record, a freshly dead bird from
June 2, 1931 in Seabrook, and there is a single July record from
White/Seavey Islands on July 12, 1997. We had searched for about an hour
yesterday for this bird that Jenna and Susan reported, but no luck.
Today, we got it! In roughly the same location they reported it
yesterday. Probably easiest to see from Frost Point at Odiorne Point SP.

This morning for two hours a Canada Warbler was singing all around our camp which is right beside the shore.
You know what is like to suddenly hear something in a place you have never heard it before. Your mind races through the antipated and suddenly you realize this is different. I grabbed my phone and pulled up I Bird Pro (Thanks Steve) and quietly played the Canada song. Don't you feel so good when you have correctly Id'd something! Next I had to get Bob on it.
A male hummer was zipping up and down impressing the female. White Nuts, Purple Finch and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks had found the feeder since we put it up last weekend I was pleased to know

Birders,

I hit a couple of spots early this morning in the towns in the subject line and had some good birds which I assume to be breeding:

--Faculty neighborhood in Durham, Carolina Wren

--Woodridge area, Gnatcatchers

--Doe Farm, Blue-winged, Prairie, Black-and-White, Chestnut-sided Warblers, and (the surprise of the day) a singing Northern Waterthrush, as well as 4 Willow Flycatchers

--Lubberland Creek in Newmarket, great looks at two Saltmarsh Sparrows (with 4 more of that genus out of range to ID), 2 occupied Osprey nests, a Barred Owl barring the trail, a Semi-palmated Plover, Marsh Wrens, Swamp Sparrows, and several warblers.


I ended the morning with 11 warbler species, none as unexpected as the Waterthrush.

Late morning hike up the Edmands Path to Eisenhower and then along the

going as I was heading up the Edmands Path since it was still early and I
was moving slow enough - I didn't stop often so I probably managed to get
85-90% of the birds.

down to Mount Clinton Road)
Blue-headed Vireo - 5
Red-eyed Vireo - 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet - 5

I just hiked up Eisenhower and Pierce this afternoon. While heading home, I
swung through Base Station Road and checked a stretch of road I had two
Mourning Warblers around this time last year. I parked and walked along the
recently cut/regenerating stand on the west side of the road and had one
male Mourning Warbler. Not heard singing but calling and seen bouncing
around in the dense vegetation (Bird remained perched for atleast 2-3
seconds/long enough to confirm ID)

Subject: [NHBirds] Kestral - June 4th

Watched a Kestral today as it hovered, and scouted the tall grass field
behind the house here in Northfield NH. He was tormented by the tree
swallows that have a nesting box. And though the Kestral returned again
and again to the field, and dove several times into the grasses, I did not
see him successfully capture a meal.

See my photos on Flicker of the Kestral and Brown Thrasher.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/151291218@N03/34933318282/in/dateposted-public/

Also today in the hedgerow we watched a Brown Thrasher, he is a regular
visitor going from the field hedgerow to the treeline, he works the edges
of the bushes.
A male Baltimore Oriole visited the hedgerow this afternoon and yesterday.
We believe he is nesting in the forest edge nearby.
Bobolink yesterday, flying over the field.

This morning in Hampton NH I came across a pair of Least Tern nesting? Is this a correct ID. They were much smaller then what I have seen for Tern before.

Subject: [NHBirds] Changes at Pawtuckaway State Park
Just want to let you know that the usual birding meeting and carpooling spot
at the powerline on Reservation Road (backside of Pawtuckaway) is off
limits. We spoke with one of the abutters who said that he and a neighbor
had posted signs indicating that the powerline cut is private property
because others had been dumping trash there. We were able to persuade him
to let us park there for carpooling today, and our argument that we were
more apt to pick up trash than to dump it seemed to soothe him. He was
congenial and polite and finally told us that if birders wanted to leave
cars there that we should stop by his house (51 Reservation Road) and let
him know we were doing so.



Another long-held birding spot now more inaccessible. The neighbor on the
other side of the powerline came out when we walked a short distance down
the powerline, told us we were on private property, but left when told about
the conversation with his other neighbor.

Interesting. I stopped at Chapman's Landing on the way to work yesterday
(Friday 6/2) and there was no activity at all around the nest
platform. And a week or so ago, I stopped for a quick look and saw an
osprey repeatedly buzzing the nest, as if it wanted to land on the
platform and something (one of the eagles?) was holding it off.

Did the eagles' nest fail?

heard a Nelson's Sparrow, which I tried to get in the scope

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon pelagic trip - last call
Listfolk,

There's still a couple of days left to sign up for NHA's spring
Pelagic Birding Trip. And there's still plenty of room, too. In
fact, we're still a couple short of our 30-person minimum. If you
were planning to go but just haven't signed up yet, well, today's the
day! Massabesic Center will be open until 5pm. Call 603-668-2045 or
email <mac...> to sign up.

WHAT: An all-day trip into the Gulf of Maine, looking for pelagic
birds (although we'll also check out any whales and other marine life
that we encounter).

WHEN: Monday, June 12th.

WHERE: Meet dockside at Rye Harbor at 7:30AM for an 8:00AM departure.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Hopefully, good weather and lots of interesting
birds!

REGISTRATION: You must register in advance for this trip. We need a
minimum of 30 people to pay for the trip. We've set a maximum of 50
so that the boat doesn't get too crowded. Cost is $70 for NH Audubon
members, $90 for non-members. Contact Massabesic Audubon Center
(phone 603-668-2045, email <mac...>) to sign up. Contact
either MAC or me with any questions you might have. Please be certain
that you leave a phone number or email address where you can be
contacted on Sunday June 11th, in case we have to cancel due to
weather.

To go with the trip, I will be holding a 1-hour workshop at
Massabesic Center on Saturday June 10th, as a basic introduction to
the most common pelagic birds and how to identify them. Since we
generally see both whales and birds on these trips, the workshop also
includes information on the common whales of the Gulf of Maine.

Four were observed in a territorial squabble low to the grass of an unmowed, hillside hayfield bordering N. Thetford Road. This field had nesting bobolinks last year.  Across the road in a more level, lower-lying and wetter pasture, also unmowed, were seen perhaps a dozen red-winged blackbirds (only one female among them) perched on utility wires.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wrapping Up "Warbler Wednesdays"
This past Wednesday's visit to Lebanon's Boston Lot Lake brought our 2017 series of outings there to a close.
Nine birders participated in the final walk, setting off uphill to the lake under cloudy skies with the temperature in the mid-50s.
Just thrity-five species were observed during the two-and-a-half hour walk; a clear indication that many species seen earlier in the month have moved on to their breeding grounds while those staying locally have begun the busy task of nesting and rearing this year's young.

The day's highlight was the re-locating and viewing of a yellow-throated vireo nest with both parents observed coming and going. No more than a small, ball of lichens, resting on a thin branch, high up in a maple, the nest was well-observed by all attendees who agreed its very survival in such a precarious circumstance was a true wonder.
The total for this year's five count days was 77 species including 18 different warbler types. Highlights there were a bay-breasted, three blackburnians and a singing Louisiana waterthrush.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wood Duck fledging video
As part of our Water Matters Exhibit Pavilion at the Squam Lakes Natural
Science Center, I have a Critter Cam exhibit with various live cameras. One
camera looks over one if our ponds and right now on a Wood Duck box. The
Wood Duck began incubation around April 26. On the 27th the camera captured
an encounter with a Hooded Merganser that entered the box while the Woody
was in there. The shaking box suggested a bit of a wrestling match inside.
Last Sunday the chicks left the box....all eleven. This clip shows the
departure of the first six....but check out #5.....it's a Hooded Merganser
chick.

So...I guess Mrs. Merganser's visit was a productive one.

Subject: [NHBirds] Odiorne State Park (GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER, Red Crossbill, etc.)
An interesting morning today on the coast. The weather front last night
brought calm and shifting winds last night and thick fog this morning.
And a few interesting spring migrants. I had a combined total of 12
species of warblers from the Church Street Parking lot and Odiorne.

The highlight, by far, was a female GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER. My first in
New Hampshire since 2000 and only my 2nd in NH since 1993. This species
has decreased its range dramatically in the northeast due to habitat
loss, and perhaps competition with Blue-winged Warblers. It used to
nest (rarely and locally) in the Durham area back in the 1980's and
1990's. This is also my first record for this species for Odiorne Point
State Park and my 33rd species of warbler for the park!

Another odd sighting at Odiorne was a male RED CROSSBILL! A rare June
record for the seacoast!

Subject: [NHBirds] RFI - purple sandpiper
Hello Birders!

We are California biologists and birders visiting Maine/NH for about a week. I've subscribed to both listservs and use eBird and Facebook, but was hoping to "pick you brains" on any lingering purple sandpipers (without going to an island). We know that we are "late" but suspect there are a few resisting migration. We spent a bit of time around The Rye area today and may try again this week. Our experience tells us that locals are the best source of information and that they don't always post that info.

Thank much and Bird ON!

Subject: [NHBirds] Common Nighthawk volunteers needed
Hi All,
As the reports show, Common Nighthawks are on the move and arriving at nest sites. There are few nesting locations in New Hampshire and NH Audubon's Project Nighthawk attempts to confirm and monitor the sites. Watches take place in the evening from 8-9:30 (or 3:30-5:00 am) at a given site. The most active monitoring takes place in Concord, Keene, Grantham and the Ossipee pine barrens, but there are several other sites with potential nesting. If you're interested in volunteering for the project, there is a training on Thursday evening - details below. If you can't make the training but are interested, please contact me.

Thanks!

Nighthawk Watch Volunteer Training:
Thursday, June 1, 2017
6:30 - 9:00 pm
NH Audubon's McLane Center, Concord

This training is designed for volunteers new to Project Nighthawk but it is valuable for volunteers who have watched only a few times and as a refresher for experienced volunteers. We will have an indoor introduction to nighthawks and nighthawk watching and then drive to a location where we can observe a displaying nighthawk (hopefully) and practice recording its behavior. Please contact me if you are interested in attending.

Subject: [NHBirds] Star Island (Apparent LAZULI BUNTING (!), Olive-sided Flycatcher)
Twelve other birders and I headed to Star Island this morning. In spite of
near-continuous mist and moderate winds, we had an an excellent day.
Unfortunately, these conditions kept most birds low in the thickets, and
many birds were seen briefly or missed by some. Extra-unfortunately, this
includes by far the most unusual bird of the day, an apparent female
plumaged LAZULI BUNTING which was originally seen only by me, but at least
half the group got looks at it. Sadly the bird was incredibly camera shy,
and disappeared as soon as anyone tried to take its photo. After
reviewing literature, I have a hard time believing that an Indigo Bunting
could match the plumage of this bird (notes below). Otherwise, a female
PURPLE MARTIN and OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER ( https://flic.kr/p/U1hush ) were
the most notable species and new Star Island birds for me. The Olive-sided
Flycatcher gets some serious bonus points for being perhaps the most
cooperative bird on the Island.

Full list follows.

Savannah Sparrow 1

Song Sparrow 12

apparent LAZULI BUNTING 1

Argh!!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! Infuriating bird that evaded the numerous
cameras in spite of being seen by most. Initially spotted by me in the
small patch of rose/poison ivy next to the dock. The bird then flew to the
larger patch of vegetation near the gazebo where Robbie, Robert and I had
good, close looks before the bird apparently flew off east across the
island. Later seen on at least 5 separate occasions by various combinations
of people, mostly in the vicinity of the garden, usually out in the open
briefly before disappearing into the dense vegetation or flying off to the
distance.

Typical passerina bunting shape... small passerine with moderately long
tail, large head, and almost conical bill. The most striking feature about
this bird was the broad, conspicuous white wingbars, which were obvious
even in my initial, incredibly brief views. Overall gray-brown without
contrast between face and throat, with a warm wash on the breast and
whitish belly. The lesser coverts were bluish. In spite of close (perhaps
10 feet), no streaking was observed on the breast or belly. Upper mandible
was blackish and lower paler gray and appeared slightly heavier than I
expect for Indigo.

I *really, really *wish someone had managed to get photos of this bird.
Ultimately I had the opportunity, but it was before I was seriously
entertaining the possibility of Lazuli. After looking into it further, I
think it was overwhelmingly likely (even factoring in the differential
abundance of the two species in New England) that this bird was a Lazuli,
and have a hard time seeing how an Indigo could match what I'd seen.

Bobolink 1 Female

Red-winged Blackbird 5

Common Grackle 12

American Goldfinch 6

Subject: [NHBirds] Final "Warbler Wednesday" Coming Up on the 31st
Hard to believe we're at the end of the series. Many transitory migrants already have passed through heading to their nesting grounds, while those migrants who nest here are getting on with that process.
What will we see this coming Wednesday morning? Please join us to find out.
We'll begin at 7:00 a.m. departing from the more northerly of the two parking areas across from the Wilder Dam on NH Route 10. 
The event is free and open to the public. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. The first part of the walk traverses a steep incline with an uneven gravel and dirt surface. Appropriate footwear is recommended.

Subject: [NHBirds] Willow and Olive-sided Flycatchers at Pondicherry in Jefferson
We biked in on the rail trail from Route 115A in Jefferson to Cherry Pond at the Pondicherry NWR on Memorial Day. We heard and saw a Willow Flycatcher at Cedar Marsh and on the way back a few hours later we heard and saw an Olive-sided Flycatcher in a snag by the trail. We also had alder and great crested flycatchers at the same location. Cedar Marsh is named for northern white cedars growing along the edge of the marsh and it is located on the freshly mowed rail trail about half way in from Route 115A in Jefferson to Cherry Pond. We also walked to to Little Cherry Pond and the bog plants were in full bloom. We had a wood duck perched in a tree near the edge of Little Cherry Pond that took off as we arrived and I thought from the sound of it that it was a large hawk. I could see it in flight and saw that it was a wood duck. We also saw a coyote with a snowshoe hare as we were biking out. We had a total of 51 species that we saw or heard. No black-backed woodpeckers at Little Cherry and I think they might be nesting now and being quiet.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (lingering sea ducks)
Jane and I hit the coast again today. The weather continues to be
dreary. Continued easterly breezes brought another cold raw morning.
Temperatures dropped to about 49F and the winds were blowing moderately
out of the east at about 15 knots. The stagnant weather pattern has
generally kept the migration slow along the shoreline for the last week;
however, a few birds are slipping through. Despite the weather, there
were a few migrants at the Church Street Parking lot including 2
Wilson's, 3 Common Yellowthroats, a Redstart and an Alder Flycatcher.
We couldn't relocate the Gray-cheeked type thrush seen yesterday.

Offshore, there isn't a lot of gull or tern activity. And shorebirds
seem to be clearing out, but there should be more coming. Some of the
biggest highlights this May have been the unseasonal rarities including
Thick-billed Murres, Razorbills, and the immature male King Eider. We
saw NONE of those today, but they may still be around. Tough viewing.
Sea ducks ad loons had been lingering in large numbers; however quite a
few have cleared out in the last week. Highlights today included:

Surf Scoter 1
White-winged Scoter 5
Black Scoter 35 Mostly in two flocks.
Long-tailed Duck 1 Continuing bird inside Rye harbor.
Red-breasted Merganser 3 Two at Seal Rocks. One at Rye ledge.
Red-throated Loon 2 One in breeding plumage off Seal Rocks. Another
migrating.
Common Loon 5
Red-necked Grebe 2 Continuing birds. One off Seal Rocks. One off
Little Boar's Head.
Northern Gannet 1 Adult or near adult off Great Boar's Head.
Bonaparte's Gull 1 1st summer bird. Remarkably FEW Bonaparte's
Gulls so far this spring. THIS IS ONLY MY 3rd for the spring!!!

Subject: [NHBirds] Common Nighthawk roosting continues...
For five days in a row...a common nighthawk has been on the same branch
roosting during the day. Please stay on the trail...there is evidence
someone went off the trail into the long grass...probably for a
picture...but there are possibly nesting birds in there. Best lighting
seems to be 3-5pm for pics. There are a few small holes to shoot through
from one side of the tree, but the other side is wide open and
unobstructed.

Take first left upon entering Pickering...then first left down steep hill.
Go past stone bench and look for the huge birch tree on left. He is in the
left side about 1/4-1/3 of the way down. Easiest spotted if you pass the
birch tree to the large bush on the right and turn around. There were two
more spotted yesterday in the large tree before the birch...but lighting
and visibility were tough. All three flushed from a nearby raptor...but at
least one is back today...the one on the birch.

Hope everyone gets the chance to see this magnificent bird.

Subject: [NHBirds] Mississippi Kites
Yesterday at 2pm, I went to Huckins Dr in Newmarket looking for the Mississippi Kites and just as I was completing my way around the circle assuming I would not find them, I saw the silhouette of a bird of prey flying which according to its shape I assume it was the kite. It flew around the area for a few minutes circling and tucking its wings in and diving and it really put on a good show for my wife and me. Eventually the bird left heading toward the elementary school.

The pics are not great but I think they are enough to make an ID.

Subject: [NHBirds] Just north of the Notches . . . Bicknell's, etc.
The past two days, I have been able to get out birding to several locations “north of the notches” although not far north. The main take away is that the migrants have largely passed by and the residents are on territory. In particular, it appears that Bicknell’s Thrush along with Yellow-bellied Flycatchers are on territory—more follows.

Yesterday, Joe Scott and I birded Hazen Pond (Whitefield Airport), Pondicherry NWR and the Trudeau Rd. area, the latter two birding by bicycle. At Hazen Pond, highlights were Bobolinks, a calling Wilson’s Snipe and a fly-in to the pond by an American Bittern. It was neat to see a Hooded Merganser fly into a nesting box and there was a lone Common Loon on the pond. Joe had a Moose that he saw from the railroad bridge just beyond the pond’s outlet.

At Pondicherry were we birded much of the time with Susan Wrisley, her niece Jenna and John from the Lancaster area where we had 16 warbler species (plus a 1th species Blackpoll seen by Susan and Jenna) all of which are most likely breeding birds including 6 Canada’s and a Mourning Warbler near Waumbek Junction which is probably the same bird recently reported by David Govatski. While we also went to Little Cherry Pond, we dipped on Black-backed Woodpecker but did have a couple of Yellow-bellied Flycatchers. Other species included Ruffed Grouse, Merlin and a couple Purple Finch.

After that, we went to the Trudeau Rd. area but again dipped on Blacked-backed Woodpecker. We did have 3-4 Yellow-bellied Flycatchers as well as 10 warbler species.

Today, I hiked up Mt. Pierce via the Crawford Path. There were lots of Yellow-bellied Flycatchers (7) but my highlight was 3 Bicknell’s Thrush one of which I was able to get a visual. Two were heard and\or seen right near the summit area but in different areas. I also had a Gray Jay.

On Thursday, I birded Base Station Rd. (road to the Cog Railroad) in the Bretton Woods area searching several spots that have had Mourning Warbler the past 2-3 years but was not able to come up with any. My guess is that they are now on territory or soon will be.

Full reports posted to eBird.

Zeke Cornell and I did some early morning birding on the coast, then
we went on the Grante State for a whale watch out of Rye Harbor and
were joined by Katrina Fenton, Jon Woolf, and Steve and Jane Mirick.
The whale watch was mostly in Massachusetts waters at Jeffreys Ledge.
The Gannet show was spectacular with a densely packed flock of about
500 circling over a small area of water above whale activity. The
whales were also wonderful with four species: great looks at 8 Sei
whales feeding close to the surface, 5 Humpbacks including a mother
and calf, 1 Minke, and about 10 Atlantic White-sided Dolphins jumping
out of the water. Highlights below.

Subject: [NHBirds] the week in birds
Monday I saw a junco stop briefly at my feeders in Richmond. No idea why
they are so scarce in summer. I saw one a few weeks ago, one saturday of
the previous week in Keene, but by and large they are scarce (but not
absent) in the warmer months.

A few times this week the Pine Warbler returned to my feeders in Richmond.

Saturday while taking a walk on Fish Hatchery Rd.(also in Richmond). I saw
a FoY Black and White Warbler.

Today I saw a FoY Yellow Bellied Sapsucker on a tree outside my house in
Richmond. Odd seeing one this late in the year. (in early May I heard but
did not see some, and usually they move on by summer).

I also went to the Hinsdale setbacks today where I saw alot of Redstarts,
some warbling vireos, a red eyed vireo, and a rose breasted grosbeak.

Sadly it has been about a week since I seen the Pine Siskins. I was hoping
I had something special here. Most write ups of southwestern NH outside the
Connecticut River valley tend to say the only interesting birds are on
mountain tops.

Subject: [NHBirds] Mea culpa--Oriole nest!
Alas, I made the cardinal sin of jumping to conclusions when I spotted a
pair of Orchard Orioles at the DMV in Nashua, then spotted a yellowish bird
wiggling into a small, round Oriole nest in the adjacent tree...

The nest belongs to a pair of Baltimore Orioles. I saw the female fly in
and out today.

But I also saw the male Orchard Oriole flying across the river nearby, so I
suspect their nest is close by!

Apologies, that'll teach me.

Subject: [NHBirds] broadwing hawks in Concord
A kettle of 6 broadwing hawks made themselves heard and then seen over my
house this morning. There has been a broadwing around in the last few
weeks, I had heard and seen him. Could this be the brood of a nest? do they
fly together like that at this time? wondering

Subject: [NHBirds] Penacook Merlins, among other things
Greetings all,



I neglected to note that last week was the 500th running of my 6.5 mile
Penacook Bird Survey. The 501st started off with a bang, when less than half
an hour in I encountered a very vocal pair of Merlins in the vicinity of
81/82 Borough Road. There is a nice row of conifers there has potential as a
nesting location. Other signs of nesting included a Chimney Swift going down
a chimney and a recently fledged cowbird being attended by a phoebe.
Additional highlights included TWO Yellow-throated Vireos along River Road,
a Corvus hat trick, and perhaps the last migrant on the survey this season:
a single Blackpoll Warbler.



The total of 75 species is again above average (10 year mean for late May =
72).



Here's to the next 499 walks around Penacook!

Subject: [NHBirds] Hinsdale grasshopper sparrows and fish crows
This morning I refound the grasshopper sparrows that Wendy and Tyson found yesterday. There were at least 2 birds, possibly 3. During the hour or so that I spent at Walmart the numbers of fish crows varied from 0 to 4, with birds arriving and leaving. I suspect that the Walmart mall is a foraging area for them and that if they are indeed nesting they may be further away in the riparian forest along the Connecticut. May even be on the VT side of the river.

Subject: [NHBirds] Hinsdale fish crows
A brief recap on the history of the birds at the Walmart parking lot: they were first seen on May 14 when only two birds were present (this does not mean that they were not there in previous years - who goes birding in Walmart Parking lots, after all). numbers were up to 3 birds a few days later on May 18, and then 6 birds on the 24th. One bird reported for the 27th. It is possible to go there and see no birds, as has happened to me - I suspect that they are roaming more widely as there have been two reports from Brattleboro VT, about three miles to the north, in the last couple of weeks. Are they nesting? No obvious signs yet of birds carrying nesting material, but I have to assume that they are. Time will tell….

Subject: [NHBirds] Grasshopper Sparrows - Hinsdale
Today 2 of us when looking for the Fish Crows at Walmart on Rt. 119 in
Hinsdale. We spotted and heard a Fish Crow right away, but heard a
Grasshopper Sparrow in the old race track next door. we spent about 15
minutes getting closer as 2 birds sang and called. We had a great but brief
view of one as it perched in the lower branch of a shrub and sang. I tried
for a picture but it was too quick and I didn't get to focus. There was a
Savannah sparrow also in this area, but we were so close and saw this bird
so there was no mistaking the song for a distant note of a Savannah. Lifer
for both of us! Wendy

I birded along the NH coast this morning, working my way from south to
north, looking mostly at waterbirds and more-or-less ignoring landbird
habitat all morning. A few highlights from the morning:

Red-throated Loon - 1 1st summer at Jenness Beach near the parking lot..
getting late
Black-crowned Night-Heron - flyover in Hampton Harbor
Roseate Tern - 5 foraging off Seabrook Beach
Least Tern - 1 foraging off Seabrook Beach
Piping Plover - 1 on Seabrook Beach
White-rumped Sandpiper - nice looks at a bird in the flats just north of
the Hampton Marina
THICK-BILLED MURRE - from Rye Harbor State Park, originally seen by Mike
Harvey from the M/V Granite State. At one point perhaps 15 feet from me at
the end of the north jetty in the harbor (https://flic.kr/p/Vdvgy6)
Purple Martin - at least a dozen foraging along Seabrook Beach

Subject: [NHBirds] The “Dinner’s Ready” Call of the Female Barred Owl
I’ve known for some time that the female Barred Owl, in addition to her
“listless Sora” call asking her mate to bring food, has a similar call for
her young when the food arrives. This morning I was close enough to hear it
well - 20 feet away.

The call is given in “sotto voce” since it is only intended to carry a
short distance, no more than fifty yards. It begins like the “begging”
call, but ends in a sharp “eek”, reminiscent of the call of a Rose-breasted
Grosbeak. The young respond vocally and the volume of their response tells
her where to direct the food - the squeakiest wheel gets the grease sort of
thing. The response of the young fresh out of the nest is like a hiss. As
the young grow, it evolves into the “begging” call, until two months out of
the nest it is very much like the mother’s.

Various options exist this summer to see Bicknell's Thrush in the White Mountains. Hiking is a good option for those who are fit and equipped. Typically we find this thrush above 3,000 feet in balsam fir stands. Some trails are better than others but I don't have the space to list all of them.

The other options include:
Cannon Mountain Tramway at Franconia Notch State Park opening on 2 June with the first tram up at 0830. $18 for adults and check the web site for up to date information.

Mount Washington Auto Road in Pinkham Notch. The Auto Road has special Bicknell's Thrush tours or you can drive your own car. Check the Auto Road web site for more details. http://mtwashingtonautoroad.com/events/bicknells-thrush-tours

Wildcat Gondola in Pinkham Notch. Not open until 2 July. Check their web site for details.

Jefferson Notch Road may not open until mid-June or later due to ice remaining on the road.

Most of the White Mountain National Forest Roads are now open and you can check the web site for details: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/whitemountain/home/?cid=stelprdb5183538

I checked the status of the Jefferson Notch Road for birders interested in hiking the Caps Ridge Trail that starts at an elevation of 3,000 feet. NH DOT reports ice and soft roadbed conditions and they are unable to work on it until the frost and moisture leaves. This could be mid-June and possibly later.

Subject: [NHBirds] Green Heron, Pine Warbler
Yesterday (well Tuesday, I am writing this late) I saw my first of year
Green Heron in Keene. A pair landed in a pine tree by the pond by Target.

Today (Wednesday) I was sitting outside on a bench by my feeders when an
odd bird landed on the suet. The colors reminded me of a female goldfinch
but the beak looked pointier. The sun was in my eyes and it flew off when I
lifted my camera. I went inside to see if it returned. No unusual bird
returned to the suet but one did land briefly to pick around on the ground.
A Pine Warbler! This has me rethinking the roles of warblers at bird
feeders. Each spring and fall Ovenbirds forage under my feeders but I just
assumed they forage their by coincidence. Twice I saw a Black Throated Blue
land by me feeders then fly off. I assumed birds are just curious on other
foraging birds but found nothing to eat. Now I wonder if occasionally
warblers will snatch bird food.

Subject: [NHBirds] 30 Nighthawks- Swanzey
Today 30 (possibly more) Common Nighthawks were feeding above the area of the waste water treatment plant at the end of Airport Road in Swanzey. I was across the river (west of the plant). They were foraging in a loose flock and occasionally calling. At times they were above me over the fields and oxbows on the west side. Due to the trees and topography I could only count 30 at one time, there could have been a few more individuals in the flock. I have never seen a spring flock in migration - only the larger late summer flocks. Wendy

Subject: [NHBirds] Webster Natural Area / Kingston Beginner Bird Walk
Eight birders joined Betsy and I for a beginner bird walk on Green Road and
the Webster Natural Area in Kingston this morning. We split most of our
time between walking the road along the Atlantic white cedar swamp and
perusing the field and shrubs of the old Kingston Fairgrounds. Migrants
were scarce and we ended the morning with an even 40 local breeders
including two Eastern Bluebirds making deliveries to one of the recently
installed nest boxes. We watched a boisterous Common Loon cruise over head,
presumably commuting from Country Pond to Great Pond. Other species that
teed up nicely for folks included Eastern Towhee, Prairie Warbler and Field
Sparrow. While Northern Waterthrush were pretty much always within earshot
and quick to defend territory, none gave us particularly revealing views.

Thanks to the Seacoast Chapter for giving me the opportunity to lead the
walk and especially thanks to the kind folks that joined me in swatting
away the mosquitoes this morning.

To: NHbirds <nhbirds...>


Yesterday I dropped by the DMV area at exit 5/Broad Street in Nashua and
spotted a little yellow/green bird flying into a tree--a female Orchard
Oriole. She popped into her little nest--and a male flew across the
river. I first thought it was a nest exchange, but apparently the males do
not brood, so perhaps he was standing by guarding the nest.

I am having difficulty uploading to and editing Flickr, so here's an eBird
list with some DMV photos including the nest--a busy little spot yesterday.

A long trek through Southwest Park complex yesterday turned up
disappointingly few migrants which sadly seems to be a trend these past few
years.

Subject: [NHBirds] Nice birding trip today
Joe Scott and I left the Mt. Washington Valley area this morning to bird several areas south of us. We had a great day approaching 90 species including 16 warbler species along with Orchard Oriole, American Bittern, seven species of flycatchers among others.

We started at NH Audubon’s Thompson Sanctuary where we first heard then saw an American Bittern which later took flight and was joined by a second bittern giving us great views. We also had both Alder and Willow Flycatcher, Virginia Rail and a nice male Hooded Merganser.

At Pickering Ponds, we had 67 species including 14 warbler species, two Black-billed Cuckoo’s that were hanging together, a male Orchard Oriole. The highlight of the warblers was a Mourning Warbler which was calling loudly right at the entrance to the ponds; we got quick but good views of the bird. Other warbler species included a Blue-winged, Wilson’s, Blackpoll and Canada. The area was crawling with Yellow Warblers and American Redstarts. We had 3 Empidonax species: Least, Willow and Alder. Lots of photos posted to eBird on this list.

At Pease, we had an Upland Sandpiper, 2 Eastern Meadowlarks and 2 American Kestrels.

The last stop of the day was in Newmarket where we found the previously reported two Mississippi Kites who gave indications of nesting as we saw them copulating.

eBird lists were posted for all 6 locations we birded.

Birdsong Identification Workshop at Bellamy River Wildlife Management Area

(NH F&G property - not the Audubon Sanctuary)



A Workshop to benefit New Hampshire Bird Records



Saturday, May 27, 7:00 am - 11:00 am


In this workshop we'll listen and look for spring birds of the fields,
thickets, forests and wetlands. We'll walk around the Bellamy River WMA in
Dover to learn about and practice birdsong identification. Possible bird
species present at this time of year include: Orchard Oriole, Scarlet
Tanager, Bobolink, Willow Flycatcher, and Blue-winged Warbler. Meet at
Garrison Road access parking lot in Dover at 7:00 A.M. Please carpool and be
prepared to walk up to 1-2 miles.


Mark Suomala has been teaching birdsong identification for more than
15-years, and conducted a breeding bird survey on the Bellamy property for
NH F&G.



Let me know by email if you plan to join me or just show up!.



Bring binoculars, bug repellent, sturdy walking shoes, a notebook, water,
snacks, and rain gear. Heavy rain will cancel.



Suggested donation $10 per person but any amount will be gratefully accepted
(cash or check, please). All proceeds will be donated to New Hampshire Bird
Records, a terrific birding resource published by NH Audubon.

Can it be? Are we really at the end of another season of "Feathered Fridays?" Tempus fugit! Beginning at 7:00 o'clock Friday morning, we'll take one more look through the wetlands and fields of Union Village Dam Park for late migrants and, now, locally nesting birds. Reports indicate some interesting species are still being seen. Our first three walks yielded records for 61 different species. Perhaps we'll add willow and olive-sided flycatchers to our season count.
As always, our jumping off point will be the parking area accessed by following Buzzell Bridge Rd. in from VT Rt.113 almost opposite E.C. Brown's Nursery. The lot is about 1/3 mile in, on the left, before a metal gate.
The walk is free and open to the public. Bring a spotting scope and/or binoculars as you prefer. The walking surface is level and unpaved. We will be in grassy fields part of the time. Be tick wary.

I met two Swedish birders at the Pondicherry NWR in Jefferson and Whitefield and they reported seeing a pair of Black-backed Woodpeckers along the Little Cherry Pond Trail. By the time I walked in the birds were gone but I did have a consolation prize in seeing a black bear cross the trail in front of me. Great-crested Flycatchers and Eastern Wood-peewees were calling and this was my first day finding them here. Gray tree frogs were pretty vocal too.

Excited to discover this after the fact - thought I was going crazy when
I saw a bright yellow bird with a black chin, about goldfinch-sized,
and couldn't find anything remotely matching it. Took quite a lot of
searching later to key it out. A first year male and a female in a
tree by the boat launch of Horseshoe Pond, making chuk calls at each
other. One was carrying nesting material. Was going to get a picture
but a car spooked them and they flew off across the pond. Seven lifers

Subject: [NHBirds] Wanna See a Long-eared Owl?
I’m pleased to see that Phil Brown has suppressed the details of the
Long-eared Owl sighting. The Ontario bird lists have stopped publishing owl
sightings because they only lead to harassment by fotogs looking for the
“money shot”. I wish the NH bird list would do the same with MIKI sightings
and leave them in peace.

That said, if you ever want to see a Long-eared Owl, the place to go is
Whitefish Point Bird Observatory in the UP of Michigan during the first two
weeks of May. This year they’ve banded over 300 of the suckers, with
similar numbers of Saw-whet Owls as well. In some years they have
phenomenal numbers of Boreal Owls (but not this year.) That’s in addition
to a great raptor migration and an astounding number of lost birds that get
there and don’t know what to do. So they often end up at the Observatory
gift shop feeder.

The observatory manages the site so the owls are not harassed yet you are
allowed to observe the banding process. In the evening, after sunset, you
may even get to see Long-eared Owls lift off from the jack pine forest,
gain altitude, and head out over Lake Superior to make the 17 mile crossing
to Canada.

Of course, if you REALLY want to see Long-eared Owls, head to downtown
Kikinda in Serbia in the wintertime, where up to a thousand birds may be
found roosting in the central plaza!
