Carolina Wren singing in my backyard this afternoon. Confirmed visually. Last summer had a pair nest in an old bucket in my garage. Eggs laid but nest abandoned. Maybe this year?

Not a creeper. Possibly a kinglet. But it sounded lower and sweeter than i would expect and have ever heard from a kinglet.

Subject: [NHBirds] Walpole Black Vultures
Two BLACK VULTURES continue with the Turkey Vultures around Fall Mountain in Walpole. I saw both birds today around 1:45pm.

Other new arrivals today (in Sullivan County) include Merlin, Kestrel and Rusty Blackbird. Hoping tomorrow’s warmer weather starts pushing more birds north.

Subject: [NHBirds] Song ID help
Howdy,

Could anyone point me in a direction?

I heard a song today that sounded like the first part of a RCKI song. Building louder into a very short jumble at the end. It was lower and sweeter than a RCKI. My only guess is a SOSP making an interesting song...

Thanks,

Traveling down Wednesday Hill Rd from Lee to Newmarket, saw FOY phoebe
perched in an autumn olive in the field across the road from the elk farm.
Crossing into Durham on Packers Falls, approaching the intersection with
Mill Rd., we passed a red shouldered hawk perched on the roadside utility
line. Just past the intersection with Bennet Rd. we saw a circling
red-tailed hawk, and approaching the Newmarket Town Line, we saw another
perched in a pine. Once we crossed the town line into Newmarket, there
were turkey vultures galore - two pairs circling along Packers Falls, and
four more as we came into town where Elm Street intersects with S. Main
St.

Subject: [NHBirds] Walpole Ross's Goose
This morning I went to look for the Ross's Goose that has been seen in
Westminster, VT and Walpole, NH since 3/18. After 20 minutes of scanning
through Canada Geese flocked around the island just south of the NH-123
bridge in Walpole, I located the bird near a pair of neck-banded Canada
Geese. Soon after the sun rose, the geese started taking off in small
groups, one of which contained the Ross's Goose. While most groups headed
to the corn fields at Westminster Station, the Ross's Goose and 4 Canada
Geese flew northward above the river.

Waterfowl migration seems to be picking up steam along the Connecticut
River - Mallard, American Black Duck, Ring-necked Duck, Wood Duck, Hooded
and Common mergansers, and Common Goldeneye were also present.

A complete checklist of my morning outing, including photos of the Ross's
Goose, can be found here <https://ebird.org/nh/view/checklist/S54066770>.

Subject: [NHBirds] Likely a phoebe today in Bow
While driving on South Bow Road this afternoon, going by Merrill Crossing, what I thought to be an Eastern Phoebe crossed the road in flight, at eye level, just a few yards ahead. It vanished in to shrubs along side the road. I got a pretty good look at it, and no I am not 100% sure. Let’s call it 98% sure. The main reason I’m open to being wrong, is that I don’t see any Phoebe reports yet, while being as familiar with the species as any of you reading this.

Subject: [NHBirds] Owl ID
Can anyone help identify this owl (zoom in center of picture)?
I'm thinking Barred, but it looked smaller than Barred owls I've seen in
past.
Also, the bill was dark grey; not the yellow I expected to see on Barred.

Location:
Spotted from Rt101A West in Amherst NH.
5:30PM March 18, 2019
Parked @ St Paul's Lutheran Church
3 Craftsman Ln, Amherst, NH 03031
Walk from parking lot towards Rt 101A
In a tree just across from small pond.

Thank you,
Donna

Hello Everyone,
Had a pair of Golden Eyes on the Squam River yesterday along with several
Hooded and Common Mergansers.
At least two Bald Eagles have been regulars around Ashland as well.
Today was our first Red Winged Blackbird and several Grackles.
A large Coopers Hawk took out a pigeon in our yard just last week.
We have seen a couple Turkey Vultures here in Ashland and some in Bristol
yesterday as well.
Happy Birding

Perhaps Mr. Owl or Mr. Hawk have something to do with these guys missing.

Speaking of Mr Hawk, I haven't seen our local red-shouldered hawk in the

Interestingly, my local squirrel population is thriving; fat lil buggers.

Is everyone tired of the spring announcements yet? I’m not!

This morning’s fresh arrivals include 12(ish) JUNCOS. This is the first time they have been seen on our farm in 2019. They are joined by 2 SONG SPARROWS, also newly arrived today.

This week have been the first BARRED OWL vocalizations that I have heard this calendar year. There was one perched above the chicken coop this morning as well, large and particularly dark.

This early afternoon there was a TURKEY VULTURE soaring above, the first of the year for me.

On Friday I had a single singing AMERICAN TREE SPARROW out behind the house.

Happy spring!

I was driving by the Mount Washington Regional Airport, also known as the Whitefield Airport, on Sunday 17 March 2019. I saw 3 Horned Larks and 5 Snow Buntings in a small patch of grass that was not snow covered along Airport Road. I also saw 6 Snow Buntings on Sunday at The Rocks in Bethlehem while doing some apple tree pruning. On Friday I saw 6 Snow Buntings in a field off of Route 116 in Jefferson. Appears that these birds are heading north to the Arctic.

On Sunday morning at our feeders in Jefferson we had 17 Evening Grosbeaks, 32 Redpolls, 2 Ravens, 1 Ruffed Grouse and the usual chickadees, red-breasted nuthatches and juncos. The ruffed grouse loves to eat dried mealworms. The bag says that chickens love these meal worms and I guess the grouse do too. On Saturday we had our first Grackle of the year.

Subject: [NHBirds] Penacook Birds




More signs of spring in Penacook the last two mornings. No noteworthy arrivals, but all the usual suspects are now here in force: redwings, grackles, Song Sparrows, and a couple of Turkey Vultures. Species totals were 35 and 29 on the 10k and Island surveys respectively, both of which are the highest since last October.

Other highlights from yesterday include two apparently migrating Cooper's Hawks and a flyover Pine Siskin along Bog Road yesterday. I also had a siskin last week, and I'm wondering if they've started trickling back north now that warmish weather has started to arrive. This morning netted a Barred Owl in someones yard and a flyover pair of Peregrines. Also of note is an increase in numbers and locations for Blue Jays. For most of the winter the only place I've seen them locally has been in the vicinity of Fowler Street to the south of me, but yesterday and today they were scattered along both routes. Like the siskins and Cooper's Hawks, they're likely starting to return from points south.

Thus afternoon I'll be checking a couple of spots along the Merrimack to see what might be in the area in terms of early waterfowl.

Good birding to all!

Heading down the driveway, even with the windows up and the radio on, I thought I heard a red-winged blackbird's unmistakable trill. Backing up the hill, windows now down, radio and heating/cooling fan off, I was delighted to have my suspicion confirmed by a small chorus of red-wingeds calls. It took me a couple of minutes, but I located a trio of red-wingeds concealed in the foliage of one of our property's old, unkempt apple trees. Hooray!

Subject: [NHBirds] Sullivan Co. Birding
Today I birded within the Sullivan County lines and I was well rewarded. Migration is definitely underway in the area especially in the Connecticut River Valley. I spent the majority of my time in the river valley but also poked around a few places in Newport and Sunapee as well. I ended my outing with 35 species, and while yes, those numbers are low, the species were worth the effort:

SNOW GOOSE: One seen in an overhead flock of Canada Geese from Wetherby Road in Charlestown.
Canada Goose: Several migrating along the CT River, two in Sunapee in Wendell Marsh.
WOOD DUCK: I had my first of the year (FOY) in Claremont on Thursday, but I found another pair today along Wetherby Road.
American Black Duck
Mallard
Hooded Merganser
Common Merganser
Wild Turkey
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
KILLDEER: FOY in the fields off Trask Brook Road in Sunapee
TURKEY VULTURE: My Sullivan County FOY. Two in Charlestown, two in Newport.
NORTHERN HARRIER: FOY, seen over St. Pierre Inc’s pit in Charlestown.
Bald Eagle: Two adults over Wetherby Road, an immature along Route Windsor Road in Claremont.
Red-tailed Hawk
Downy Woodpecker
Blue Jay
American Crow
Black-capped Chickadee
Tufted Titmouse
Eastern Bluebird
American Robin
European Starling
PINE GROSBEAK: One in a fruit tree outside the Rite Aid Pharmacy in Newport.
HOUSE FINCH: One singing in Newport. This species is notoriously scarce in Sullivan County but have been becoming more regular in Newport recently.
SNOW BUNTING: Four around the ponds at the Charlestown WTP.
American Tree Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
White-throated Sparrow
SONG SPARROW: Numbers are starting to climb in the CT River Valley. Only found one overwintering bird all season.
EASTERN MEADOWLARK: FOY. A big surprise when I accidentally flushed it from the side of Langdon Road in Charlestown.
Red-winged Blackbird: Had my FOY on Thursday, but numbers are climbing.
Common Grackle: FOY.
Northern Cardinal
House Sparrow

And from the Merrimack Valley and Lakes Region:

Blackbirds, grackles, killdeer, and a flicker were in the West Portsmouth Street/Locke Road area of Concord this morning. Becky Suomala and I also got the overwintering Winter Wren at the latter location to sing a little for us.

Later in the morning, Unity Dienes and I explored Tilton and Laconia, where there were also reasonable numbers of grackles and blackbirds, a&nbsp; three Ring-necked Ducks above Silver Lake, and a kingfisher and pair of Wood Ducks in downtown Laconia.

Song Sparrows are starting to sing in most locations.

Bring it on (but get out tomorrow before it starts cooling off again)!

It's that great time of year when things really start to move. A quick
drive around Kingston, East Kingston and Kensington produced several
blackbird flocks consisting of mostly Common Grackles with some number of
Red-winged Blackbirds present.

Bodwell Farm in East Kingston is picking up a bit. There was a handful of
Green-winged Teal among a couple hundred Mallards and American Black Ducks.

Powwow Pond and the Powwow River has been pretty active for much of the
winter with things picking up in the last couple weeks. A FOY Killdeer
called over head today while yesterday, there was a decent showing of
waterfowl on the Pond:

8 Canada Goose
3 Wood Duck
35 Mallard
15 American Black Duck
1 Northern Pintail
21 Ring-necked Duck
2 Bufflehead
11 Hooded Merganser
8 Common Merganser

Subject: [NHBirds] Great Bay Access - CLARIFICATION and list from this afternoon
Just to clarify/expand on Susan Wrisley's post from earlier today.

The access to Great Bay off Osprey Cove Road she is talking about is
from Conservation Land at Brackett's Point.  It is NOT the short
"resident access" path close to the water on Osprey Cove, nor is it from
Brackett's Point Road (cottages) off Great Bay Road further to the
east.  Both of these locations are Private Property.  Stay out of these
spots.

This public access land Susan is talking about can be a spectacular
location for seeing ducks on Great Bay, but a spotting scope is
absolutely essential and a short walk is required.  I am not aware of
any name for this public access property.  For now I am calling it
"Brackett's Point Conservation Land" unless/until someone corrects me.

Parking is from a small gravel parking lot (currently covered with snow)
near a cemetery (didn't note street number....see map) off Osprey Cove
Road in Greenland.  Signs are not terribly obvious, but they are present
which show that this is public access property. From the parking lot you
walk along a poorly maintained foot trail crossing an overgrown pasture
field to access Brackett's Point, where there are tall White Pine
trees.  It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk which is currently not too
difficult since there is only a small amount of snow and it is currently
well packed.  Please see the map below for more specifics.  And below is
my list from this property this afternoon.

Map

pick out.
CANVASBACK  2     Female and male.
REDHEAD  2     Males.

Greater Scaup  2,000     Rough ballpark. Biggest concentration was to
the east, but several hundred more toward the west.  Possibly a Lesser

Horned Grebe  1     Continuing. Uncommon for date.
Ring-billed Gull  20

Surprised to see this.

Hi Folks,
Sorry to post an extralimital sighting here, but it might be worth conveying to nearby VT birders. I’m currently on my way home from Pittsburg, NH and just passed through North Hartland, VT on I-91. Off to the West I saw an all white raptor flying over a field near 681 Route 5. It was too distant to tell what it was but I’m thinking either a Snowy Owl or perhaps a leucistic Red-tailed Hawk. May be worth checking out if you’re in the area.

Saw two turkey vultures flying very low over Beaver Brook in Hollis yesterday, and another two on Saturday over the Mass Pike. A sign of spring perhaps? Hopefully some open water soon will bring a few ducks! Last year the red-winged blackbirds returned mid-February and I was getting ring-necked ducks on Horseshoe Pond too. Still haven't seen a blackbird yet this year.-Molly JacobsonMerrimack(on spring break)

From: Alfred Maley <alfredmaley...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Eagles Arriving, Goshawk and Lesser Kestrels Visit the Farm
Relentless blue skies have made for hard hawk watching, but there’s now a
steady stream of Short-toed Eagles migrating over the farm, as well as the
first Booted Eagles, which will become very numerous in the next two weeks.
The big surprise yesterday was a flock of six Lesser Kestrels circling over
the house at mid-day. Although they nest in Los Barrios in nest boxes
placed on the cathedral and on apartment buildings, this daintier version
of the Eurasian Kestrel is rarely seen on the farm.

Lesser Kestrels have the peculiar habit of migrating in same-species
flocks, which helps with identification. Another raptor, the Levant
Sparrowhawk, also migrates “gregariously”, helpful in distinguishing that
more-eastern species from the Sparrow Hawk in places like Istanbul.

Probably the rarest bird recently was a male second-winter Goshawk that we
first spotted in January when a flock of Cattle Egrets exploded out of the
pasture and this big accipiter flew past us. Without binoculars at the time
we were unsure what it was. Then we found a pile of egret feathers in a
wooded copse near the manor house and then had several more sightings
around the gardens and wooded areas - a good spot from which to foray out
after those pesky egrets, which are currently everywhere. The egrets will
soon depart to form nesting colonies over by La Janda. The Goshawk, only
the second one I’ve seen here in nineteen years, probably will retreat to
more heavily wooded areas to seek a mate and nest.

Subject: [NHBirds] Bald Eagles,Redpolls,Barred Owl
I saw a pair of mature Bald Eagles flying near Horseshoe pond in Concord
today.

12 Common Redpolls have been at my feeder in Dunbarton, eating hulled
sunflower seeds in the
feeder & on the ground. They are also using the heated bird bath side by
side with the Goldfinches.

There was a Barred Owl in a tree near my garage again Sunday, napping for
hours. Our yard has
had a nesting pair here the past 2 yrs with 3 babies each time. I am
looking forward to
more babies this summer with their interesting hissing calls.

Subject: [NHBirds] Mascoma Chapter Field Trip: Saturday, March 23
Sitting, looking out the kitchen window at the snow-covered fields, it is
hard to believe we're talking about spring migration, but we know it will
happen regardless of current conditions.

Please join members of the Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee as we take a
tour along the Connecticut River's Vermont side in search of migratory
waterfowl and early arriving spring songbirds.

The outing is to begin at 8:00 a.m. Meet in Dartmouth’s new, Lewiston
parking lot adjacent to the Norwich end of the Ledyard Bridge to form car
pools.

We'll first check out Norwich’s, riverside Foley Park adjacent to the
Ledyard Bridge. From there we’ll head north searching the river and its
adjacent inlets, fields and woods for avian activity. Likely stopping spots
include “Pompy Flats,” Kendall Station Road and Campbell Flats

The event is free and open to the public. All experience levels are
welcome.

Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. Walking conditions
are level traveling over mostly paved surfaces.

In the event the river is frozen over to the north, we'll head south
searching the open waters at White River Junction and farther downstream.

Blake Allison, Steering Committee Chair

This will include their trips to the Asa Wright Nature Center of Trinidad. Unique bird sightings include Scarlet Ibis, Oilbird, Motmot, Honey Gripper, Tanager, and hummingbirds all quite unlike our summer residents.


Saturday Mar 23, 2019, 7:00 AM to 3:30 pm, Field Trip to NH Coast
From Odiorne Point to Hampton Beach State Park, we will be looking for seabirds along the NH coast (e.g. Loons, Grebes, Seaducks, Alcids, and Gannets). Bring your scope if you have one and pack a lunch. We will meet in Nashua at the Exit 7 Park & Ride, on the hill behind the Fireside Inn and Suites, or contact Richard Bielawski at

On Saturday while driving near Exit 7 of Route 101 West, Sylvia Hartmann and

places (and the probable reasons for that), this isn't surprising, but it
was amazing to see the bird at this location.

Subject: [NHBirds] Redheads and other highlights
Birding continues to be relatively slow with a dearth of spring migrants in this cold March. We did find a few signs that birds were starting to move:

- the 4 adult male Redheads on Great Bay, already posted

- 43 Turkey Vultures roosting at the edge of a marsh on the north side of Rt. 101 at Exit 9, Exeter

- 27 Great Cormorants tallied on the coast after not seeing any last weekend.


Other highlights from the day included:

Green-winged Teal pair at Downing Ct., Exeter

Ring-necked Duck 3 with 17 Lesser Scaup at Exeter WTP

Black Guillemot off Seabrook Beach

Purple Sandpipers 7 at the end of the Hampton River jetty

Red-throated Loon 3 from Fort Constitution

Subject: [NHBirds] Black-backed Woodpeckers at Pondicherry in Jefferson
Saw three adult Black-backed Woodpeckers at Pondicherry on Saturday morning. A pair was along the far end of the Mooseway Trail about 0.2 miles from the junction with the Little Cherry Pond Trail on a knoll working on some dead spruce. Photos on eBird. A third was drumming in a dead spruce at the south edge of Little Cherry Pond. Also had a hairy woodpecker, pileated woodpecker, two brown creepers, two red-breasted nuthatches, three black-capped chickadees, and a ruffed grouse that exploded out of a snow cave along the Mooseway Trail. A few red squirrels and what appeared at first to be a small polar bear turned out to be a beautiful Samoyed dog named Carter.

Trail and weather conditions for woodpeckering were perfect. Blue sky, crisp air, and a slight breeze made it the best day of the winter for me so far. I kept my snowshoes off on the packed trails and listened for the tapping of woodpeckers every two hundred feet in suitable habitat.

I’ve seen hundreds, maybe thousands gather in the area just below the falls
at the Fishways/Eversource complex. I’d been looking at the river for ducks
and went to turn around at the end of N. Commercial St. when they started
to fly in.

I’ve got a bunch of photos somewhere. This was several years ago.

Bathing, conversing, squabbling, eating, roosting—a noisy group! And quite
a spectacle!

Hi Geoff
A week ago I was at an evening meeting at Catholic Medical Center on the top floor, looking out to the west. As twilight fell there was a massive number (Would guess easily 1000’s) swirling around local church top and chimneys. This continued for some time, and was a truly stunning sight in the almost dark sky. I lost track as I had a presentation to do, then when it was over no sight of these crows. Clearly there is an very large crow population along the Merrimack River in Manchester. No idea where they settled, but I have seen hundreds in the past settle just north of Bridge street along route 3 but never in these numbers.

Hi Dana
Yesterday afternoon, Thursday 3-7 to be exact, at around 4:45, I was driving South on 93/293 from Bow down through Manchester, to Litchfield. Then back again shortly after. While traveling South, and just South of the Hooksett tollbooth, there were dozens of crows crossing over 93, coming from the area of the Merrimack river, going toward the West. I was counting best I could, 30-35 visible at any given time, in this ongoing stream of crows. I sighted them first from 150ish yards, after passing them by equal numbers were showing up from the East as they continued West.
Then further down, more crows. Again, crossing 293 this time, near the 93-Exit 10 split, Crossing over 293, and flying West. In the same streaming as noted above. And further down, more again. When I came back north, 45 minutes later, all were gone apparently, except for the first spot I noted, where there was still this ongoing stream of crows, crossing 93 close to the tollbooth. Dozens of crows at a time visible above as I passsed by underneath. I was getting the impression this river of crows was going the entire time, between when I was driving South, to when I came back.
This isn’t the first or second time I’ve seen this crow-thing going on in the late afternoon, between Hooksett and Manchester. Sometimes I see them flying South along the river in Manchester, and I’ve seen hundreds (maybe even 1000 or more) in the trees along side 293, and/or the river, in Manchester. This, late afternoon, almost dark even, in the area of the Amoskeag bridge exit, and immediately South of it. Not long ago, in the fading twilight, I estimated several hundred, maybe 1000, crows in the trees in this spot, along both sides of 293 and the river itself, while another estimated 250 were in flight above my car. I can’t be the only person up this way to be noting these numbers of crows in the Manchester area.

I am no expert, but I’d guess that most of the time, it doesn’t seem like the crows I see could possibly get to Lawrence before full darkness sets in. It’s another 25 miles or so South. At other times, like yesterday, it doesn’t seem like they’re heading to Lawrence at all. Instead they vanish while heading west, on the North side of Manchester, or even further up in Hooksett.

Subject: [NHBirds] Exploring Tools for Citizen Science
The Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon is to host a "Winter Nature Series Talk"
at Hanover's Howe Library this coming Tuesday, March 12 beginning at 7:00
p.m.

There have never been more programs available for people to engage in
"citizen science." In the Upper Valley there are Vermont eBird and New
Hampshire eBird as well as iNaturalist. These tools not only help you track
your own sightings but put a wealth of useful and interesting data at your
fingertips.

Exploring and understanding all these programs have to offer, can be
somewhat daunting, but Vermont Center for Ecostudies "Citizen Science
Outreach Naturalist" Nathan Sharp is more than capable of helping
interested users navigate their way.

Nathan will provide an introduction to both the eBird and iNaturalist
portals showing how to enter data into both websites. He'll also discuss
the myriad uses of eBird and iNaturalist, ranging from tracking the
migratory patterns of birds, to pinning down locations for hard to find
species, to viewing phenological changes throughout the year. 

Whether just starting out or experienced users looking to maximize the
range of information available to them, attendees are sure to find Nathan's
talk both informative and entertaining.

Subject: [NHBirds] Crow Patrol March 6, 2019
Crow Patrol Wednesday March 6th -

Temp 24 degrees, wind 10 mph out of the west, sunset at 5:38 pm.

Last night Bob and I went out on Crow Patrol about 4:45 pm and drove by the
Riverside State Park seeing just a couple of crows. We checked in at the
boathouse - again no birds so on to Industrial Way. A few crows were
streaming in from the south on the west side of the New Balance Distribution
Building. On to the Affinity parking lot - more were gathered along the
river and in the trees to the west. Back to Andover St. and into Andover
Place where beyond the initial buildings, crows were beginning to gather,
many were on the ground in the swampy areas on both the left and the right.
A few on roof tops and in the trees - 2,500 birds.

Craig Gibson had passed through minutes before and said and had none further
west. Back to the Riverside State Park where Craig said birds were being
seen. A few visitors were watching with him. Hundreds of Crows in waves were
starting to move in from the west over the northern hill side - not over the
river as the night before. Some started to come from the east over the land
too. You could see them perched in the tallest trees on the far hillside
but none by the river - in stark contrast to the night before.

We stayed the longest and watched them eventually sliding eastward along the
far tree tops. By 6:15 we left to try and find where they had settled but it
was probably too late to do this as it was getting dark by then. We went
north on Rt. 28 and then cut west as if to go to the cemeteries and then
turned south at the rotary near the cemetery and despite driving all around
and eventually driving down Ames St. to Water St. - we saw no roosting
crows. They had outwitted us again!!

Bob counted about 12,000 crows but many could have come in from the north
and not been visible to us . Why they suddenly do something new is still a
great mystery. Possibly, this is why we return again and again to see what
new excitement they will evoke another night and hoping we may someday
figure out why they do what they do!!!

We will be on Patrol tonight Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Please
come very soon if you wish to see the show this year as they soon will be
staying on their nesting territory or heading far north to establish one.

Email me if you would like to join us.

Wow, what a find! I came across the bridge from South Berwick into Rollinsford about 8 this morning and caught a glimpse of an eagle, which sure didn't look like a Bald. I was too far away to draw a conclusion, but maybe Deb's bird was in the region all day.

I am beyond excited to say I photographed an immature golden eagle on the Dover NH/South Berwick Maine boarder this afternoon. I stopped because I saw an immature bald eagle circling with a mature balded eagle, then another immature showed up, one quick look and I knew it was not a bald. I enjoyed what seemed like 5 minutes of thrills as all three flew with each other, never showing any aggression. Right over my head! The two immature went way up high and flew off in the direction of the bay, the bald followed behind.

A very exciting experience!

Subject: [NHBirds] nature travels this summer in northern NH

Birders,

 

I’d
like to highlight two annual birding/nature travel opportunities I’ll be
leading this summer in northern NH. We will visit both well-known and
little-known birding hotspots in search of unusual or range-limited species,
warblers, nocturnal species, and boreal birds. We will focus on bird ID,
migration and life histories, learning bird songs, and birding by habitat. Both
experiences are suitable for both beginning and advanced birders. In addition,
these tours offer some great opportunities for bird photography, and the food
and lakeside accommodations are excellent.



 

Birdwatching Retreat Weekend at
Purity Spring Resort – June 21-23, 2019

 

The weekend will focus on the
amazing array of birds around Purity Spring Resort and other well-known and
little-known locations around the Mount Washington Valley. Upwards of 100
species of birds are possible, including some rare and local breeding species. This package birding weekend is
non-birding spouse-friendly and includes lodging, guide costs, presentations,
Friday dinner through Sunday lunch, and use of resort amenities.

 

Connecticut Lakes of Northern New
Hampshire – August 26-30, 2019

 

Five days of leisure AND birding in Pittsburg, NH and
surrounding locations in search of boreal birds, early migrants, and wild
natural places. Lodging at the scenic Glen Lodge on First Connecticut Lake.

 



Group size is limited, and these tours have filled in past
years, so please email me at <pbrownnature...>
for more information.

Kathi and I skied to Cherry Pond on a snowy Monday morning. We only saw or heard one bird but it was a female Black-backed Woodpecker. The location was in a patch of dead balsam fir trees along the rail trail about 0.4 mils in from the Airport Road Trailhead. The rail trail here is on a high fill area where it drops down on both sides at a stream crossing. We also saw a white-tailed deer that crossed in front of us.

Back at home in Jefferson we had 42 Evening Grosbeaks and 28 Common Redpolls when we returned. We also had a Ruffed Grouse picking up spilled seed under the feeders.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast Field Trip (Redpolls, Fish Crows, and 2 owls (in MA))
Jane and I led our annual March field trip along the NH coast yesterday
for the Joppa Flats Education Center of the Massachusetts Audubon
Society.   8 birders joined us.  We started at Joppa Flats, and after a
short Screech-owl stop, we drove directly up to Portsmouth (to avoid a
road race in Hampton) and worked our way south along the coast,
finishing briefly at Salisbury Beach State Reservation.  In NH, we
stopped to bird at Fort Constitution and Great Island Common in New
Castle, Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, Pulpit Rocks pull-off in Rye,
Rye Harbor State Park and Rye harbor boat launch, North Hampton State
Beach, Bicentennial Park in Hampton, Church Street (water tower) parking
lot in Hampton, and Seabrook parking lot overlooking Hampton harbor in
Seabrook.  We finished with a Snowy Owl at Salisbury Beach State
Reservation.

The weather was great, with sunny skies, seasonable temperatures, and
zero wind.  But the residual waves from a storm the day before made for
challenging views of offshore sea ducks.

----------------------------
Canada Goose
Mallard
American Black Duck
LESSER SCAUP - 3 continue in Rye harbor from boat ramp.  Two females and
a male.
Common Eider

parking lot in Portsmouth harbor.  Kept diving a lot however!
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
GLAUCOUS GULL - Old reliable, "Glockenspiel" continues from Seabrook
bath house overlooking Hampton harbor.
Great Black-backed Gull
Red-throated Loon - 1 seen by Jane and a couple of others from Fort
Constitution.  Scarce since December.
Common Loon - Lots.  Including at least 14 from Pulpit Rocks in Rye.
Great Cormorant
Turkey Vulture - At least 2 or 3.  One at Seacoast Science Center in Rye.
Bald Eagle - 3 for the day including one INCUBATING on nest in New
Castle, and 1 close flyover at Ragged Neck in Rye.
Red-tailed Hawk
EASTERN SCREECH-OWL - 1 beautiful red morph catching some morning rays
in Newburyport, MA to start the day.

Zeke Cornell and I birded the coastal area yesterday. Overall things
were quiet with similar species as have been present the past few
weeks. There was a big swell on the ocean which made seabirding a
challenge. We had no alcids. We also looked for the Canvasback found
by Robbie Prieto at Great Bay Discovery Center without luck, although
there were large numbers of distant Greater Scaup and Common Goldeneye
feeding along the edge of the ice. We did have 5 Bald Eagles for the
day and lots of Red-tailed Hawks. A few highlights below.


Newington Rd., Greenland

Snow Goose - 1 with a flock of Canadas in the fields by Great Bay Farm

Barred Owl - sitting in the sun on the edge of a field

Red-winged Blackbirds and grackles - only a small flock


Exeter

Turkey Vultures - 15 roosting in Front St. cemetery

Lesser Scaup - 18 at the WTP, numbers slowly building


NH coast

Red-throated Loon - 1 at Seal Rocks, Rye, they’ve been scarce for us
lately

Scaup - 3 sleeping in Rye Harbor, not usually seen there

Subject: [NHBirds] Newport/Sunapee Birds
This afternoon I drove to several areas, mostly in Newport, in search of birds (and any signs of spring). Not so many signs of a change in season, but I did find some interesting birds. It’s intriguing the difference a day makes. Yesterday, I scoured Sullivan County and couldn’t find one thing to write home about but thankfully today was a little better:

In the Sugar River along Sunapee Street in Newport there was a pair of COMMON MERGANSERS and a single Drake COMMON GOLDENEYE. The Mergansers are my first of the year in Sullivan County outside the CT River. The Goldeneye was my first of the year in the county in general.

Outside the Sullivan County Courthouse on Main Street in Newport there were 9 PINE GROSBEAKS feeding in a fruit tree. I was surprised to see them as I hadn’t seen any or read any reports about any in a few weeks now. Nearby amongst a big flock of starlings, there were also Cedar Waxwings and Robins. Some of the Robins were heard softly singing, so hey, that’s a sign of spring right?

In Wendell Marsh in Sunapee, three CANADA GEESE were seen out amongst a group of Mallards, Black Ducks and Hooded Mergansers. Canada Geese don’t overwinter in my area and these birds seem to be early returning migrants. I’ve been seeing them around for a couple weeks now, likely coaxed back into the area by one of the past “heat waves.”

The biggest surprise of the day came in the form of an immature NORTHERN GOSHAWK. It was perched in a tree in a mature pine forest along Corbin Road in Newport. The first perched bird I’ve since I believe 2012! Unfortunately, it didn’t stay put long enough for me to get my truck parked and attempt a photo. A great sighting nonetheless.

On route 85 where the railroad tracks go under the road. If you're going
toward Rte.108 it will be on your left in a tree just after the tracks.
Great looks!

Subject: [NHBirds] banded female mallard Gilman park exeter
I saw a banded female mallard today at Gilman park in Exeter, along with all the rest of the mallard which are feed by the women across the street. Of course the only shy one was this banded one. Not sure if there is enough for an ID or not?

Thanks

Subject: [NHBirds] Is it Spring yet?
Got a double treat today birding the trail behind Ashuelot Park in Keene. About one half mile up the trail and past the small wood bridge I was greeted by both a gray catbird and a hermit thrush no more than 15 feet away from each other and about 20 feet from me. I watched the thrush for about 10 minutes perched in the understory before it flew off. A couple of hardy souls to be sticking around here this time of year. Russ ChretienKeeneSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

Subject: [NHBirds] Redpolls and Evening Grosbeaks in Jefferson
On Friday 1 March we had a high count of 67 Redpolls at our feeders in Jefferson. We have paper birch trees that they perch in and are easy to count. Our Evening Grosbeak count was 11, and that is the lowest number in a few weeks.

Birders reported seeing a Black-backed Woodpecker on the Little Cherry Pond Trail on Friday and a Barred Owl on the Mooseway Trail on Saturday, also at the Pondicherry NWR. I was birding in the Northeast Kingdom of VT on Saturday morning and we saw five black-backed woodpeckers including three on the same tree. Woodpeckers have started their territorial drumming making them easier to find. Snowshoes are needed if you leave the road because the snow is really deep.

Subject: [NHBirds] A 5 Owl Species Day
On advise from some of her Facebook friends, Susan Wrisley and I decided to
head up to Amherst Island in Canada for the wintering raptor show being
reported there.

A 9 hour drive left us only a few hours of daylight to explore the island.
Those 3 hours, however, were the 3 on my most productive birding hours ever!

Sighting included ...

20+ Red Tails, 12 in view at one time!
A dozen+ Harriers,
4 Rough-legs,
2 Bald Eagles,
1 Saw-Whet owl,
1 Barred owl,
2 Great-horned owls,
5 Snowies,
and ...
20+ Short-eared owls!

After watching an adult Eagle, only 50 feet away, chasing & catching voles
running across the snow we saw a large kettle of birds rising from the
field that turned out to be all Shorties leaving their daytime communial
roost and dispersing across the field. It was a truly amazing spectacle.

Later we found them dispersed across the east side of island, it seemed
like every other fence post had a Shortie teed-up.

Can't wait to see what Saturday brings.

Susan Wrisley, Hollis

Subject: [NHBirds] Kites, Eagles Arrive at the Farm as Andalusians Celebrate Bureaucracy and Kleptocracy; Caterpillar Perform a Procession
Today (Feb 28) was “Día de Andalusia” where Andalusians celebrate their
self-imposed bureaucracy and kleptocracy. It was in 1980 when a new
democracy was being formed. The Basques and the Catalans adamantly wanted
their own local government where they could be served in their own
language. The embryonic Federal Government caved in. The Andalusians, not
to be outdone, demanded the same thing. Soon 17 “states” were formed in a
country only three fourths the size of Texas, each with its own president,
vice-president, congress and hundreds of political advisors and
consultants. They’ve regretted it ever since, as scandal after scandal has
rocked these local governments, public payrolls became super-dimensioned
and taxes rose and services declined.

(I guess I shouldn’t throw stones - we have Rhode Island.)

The Black Kites and Short-tailed Eagles were not deterred, however, by
political considerations as the winds finally switched from East (Levante)
to West (Poniente) which sends the birds our way. The light winds produced
a few hundred Black Kites and the first Short-toed Eagles of the season,
one of which may have been the farm’s summer resident as it was quickly
busy hunting over the house and patio.

The skies were filled with Griffon Vultures, but for a reason other than
migration. A cow on the neighbor’s ranch had died and had been dragged out
for the vultures. Literally hundreds are attending the ceremonies and will
do so for the next day or so.

The other notable event began on Wednesday, when I noticed a circular mass
of the pine processionary caterpillars (*Thaumetopoea pityocampa*) under
our pine tree. Because their “hairs” are highly irritant, people dislike
them and destroy them when possible, but I find them fascinating. They are
famous for forming processions, with the head of one behind the rear of
another, with the procession always led by a female. They’ve spent the Fall
and Winter eating pine needles and are now off to burrow into the ground
and pupate. I think the “circle the wagons” formation I saw was to prepare
to spend the night together.

This morning about 10:30 AM I discovered them in a line, slowly marching
across a space of about fifteen feet over a heavily trafficked area to a
shrubby. area where they would be safe from detection. But would they get
there? After worrying and checking every hour or so, I finally found them
in another circle, just a foot away from safety. They were having a
planning season! Fifteen minutes later they were safely hidden away.

Why do I care? Well the pupae these caterpillars will turn into one of the
favorite foods of the Hoopoe, which is due to return from Africa within a
week or so. There’s nothing quite so cool as a Hoopoe on your lawn poking
its huge bill into the ground to dig up a processionary caterpillar pupae.

Subject: [NHBirds] Ebird Entry Reminder
This is a reminder to please enter your winter sightings into NH eBird ( www.ebird.org/nh<http://www.ebird.org/nh> ) right away. The winter season runs from December 1 through February 28/29 and data should be entered by March 5th! That will ensure that it is incorporated into the dataset available for New Hampshire Bird Records and North American Birds. It's great to have everyone's sightings in the database for use by both publications.

Thanks!

Subject: [NHBirds] new Osprey nest platform at Strafford County Complex installed
The new Osprey nest platform was erected this am under frigid and blustery conditions. Thank you to Eversource who donated the pole installation via a hardy crew from JCR Construction Company, Inc. of Raymond. Also kudos to Richard Bickford who constructed a handsome platform with funds from Seacoast Audubon. Photos to record the event were taken by Alan Murray, Sam Stoddard, and Sue Bickford. Chris Martin of NH Audubon provided input on logistics. The project was approved by Strafford County Administrators and Commissioners.
Sue Bickford's attempt to record the proceedings with a drone was not possible because of the wind, but when weather permits, she will use the drone to record the final product. Sue will do a presentation on using drones for Natural Resources projects for the Seacoast Chapter's Oct. program. A video she took this morning will be shown at the program and also will be provided to Eversource and JCR.
The process was something to behold! Thanks to everyone who contributed. Dan Hubbard, Rochester

Subject: [NHBirds] Plymouth, Holderness birds
I gave a friend a ride down to Plymouth today. While I was waiting around for her I drove around to check some of the fruit trees in the area for feeding birds.On Russell Street I found a dozen female Pine Grosbeaks feeding on some fruit trees in the town library parking lot. At one point while I was photographing them I saw a Northern Mockingbird drop into a shrub across the street feeding on some other berries. Also while photographing the grosbeaks at one point a good sized flock of waxwings flew over and kept on going somewhere where I was not able to relocate them.Later I checked the trees down on Holderness Rd around the college buildings and found about 30 robins working the berries on several trees there.                                                                                                                Duane Cross

Zeke Cornell and I birded southeast NH and the coast today. As already
posted by Zeke, we had a beautiful, very white Snowy Owl at Hampton
Beach State Park, on the roof of one of the adjacent houses. There was
also a flock of 31 Snow Buntings. Although we found the expected
winter waterfowl on the coast, numbers were low except for the
continuing huge flock of Black Scoters and Common Edier at the mouth
of Hampton Harbor. Here are some of the other highlights of the day.


Northern Shrike immature - South Road, East Kingston, in the farm
fields south of the elementary school


Red-shouldered Hawk adult - Rt. 107/108, East Kingston by 14 Main St.


American Wigeon - 1 at Powwow Pond, Kingston with 10 Hooded
Margansers, 6 Common Mergansers, and an assortment of Mallards,
blacks, and Canada Geese


Chipping Sparrow - 1 on Giles Rd. at Rt. 108, Kingston and a
Red-winged Blackbird


Black Guillemot - 1 at Concord Pt., Rye


Purple Sandpiper - 4 at Bicentennial Park, Hampton


Common Grackles - at least 100 at Great Bay Farm, Newington with 50+
Red-winged Blackbirds


Red-winged Blackbirds - 2 at Clair’s Landing at Lake Massabesic,
Auburn

This morning at Pickering Ponds, there was a Hermit Thrush in a shrub next to the Cocheco River which was shortly joined by a catbird; 2 "half-hardies" in one bush. Two Golden-crowned Kinglets were nice also. Dan Hubbard, Rochester

Subject: [NHBirds] Dickcissel, Bohemian Waxwing and Turkey Vulture
We took a drive around Laconia looking for birds.

Lots of open water in the river, so there were hundreds of Mallards,
with some Black Ducks, Hooded and Common Mergansers, and some Common Goldeneyes.

We found a first winter female Dickcissel with a small flock of House Sparrows
in bushes at the intersection of Fair St and Winnisquam Ave.
They flew from there, across the river to Water Street.

And we saw one Bohemian Waxwing with about 7 Cedar Waxwings
at the corner of River St and Arch St.


On the way home, we had a Turkey Vulture flew over us along Rt 107 in Gilmanton.

One Turkey Vulture circling very high overthe dump piles, beyond workable lens distance.
It worked up and dow amongst the usual cloud of gulls and flewout of its gyre to the East.

There was an adult goshawk at the NH Audubon Thompson Wildlife Refuge this morning, plus about 17 redpolls. The previous day, a Barred Owl was hanging around the area. Yesterday afternoon a sub-adult Bald Eagle flew north over the Bearcamp Rivet Drainage along Bearcamp Pond Rd.
