The "pond" is the one behind Price Chopper, identified in eBird reports as "Cranberry Pond Wetlands."

Should have provided that detail the first time. Sorry.

Subject: [NHBirds] Spotted sandpiper
I have a question, Does the spotted sandpiper act like a killdeer if you are close to its nest? Twice now I have seen the same spotted sandpiper act this way. I have not seen a nest, but the bird does this behavior when we walk by a certain area. Thoughts!

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (Gr. Cormorant, RN Grebe, 753 Common Eiders)
Jane and I did a rather complete count of Eiders along the coast from
Seabrook north to Portsmouth.  Low tide, poor lighting, and hordes of
people near Odiorne didn't help.

Common Eider  753     Relatively complete survey of coast.  Includes 606
adults/suabadults and 147 babies.  Surprisingly few babies, but rather
high count of adults.  Counts of babies from past years (not necessarily
complete coast):
7/27/97 - 13 young south of Odiorne.
7/25/98 - 4 young in Rye harbor.
6/17/99 - 3 young at Seal Rocks in Rye.
6/2/02 - 69 young at Seal Rocks in Rye.
6/11/03 - 6 young south of Odiorne.
7/11/03 - 13 young at Seal Rocks in Rye.
6/19/04 - 27 young on NH Coast (19 Seal Rocks & 8 off Little Boar's Head)
7/23/06 - 20 young at Seal Rocks in Rye.
6/20/07 - 46 young on NH Coast (41 at Pulpit Rocks in Rye)
6/15/08 - 90 young on NH Coast
6/14/09 - 69 young on NH Coast
6/6/10 - 35 young at Seal Rocks in Rye
6/7/13 - 148 young along NH Coast
6/23/18 - Not careful differentiation of young.  816 total eiders, 1/2
estimated as being young.
6/22/19 - 147 young along NH Coast
Surf Scoter  2
White-winged Scoter  8
Black Scoter  47
RED-NECKED GREBE  1     At least one continues from Ragged Neck.
Bonaparte's Gull  1     1st summer bird with RBGU.
Ring-billed Gull  42     All 1st summer birds together on north end of
Jenness Beach.  With only a single BOGU.
Common Loon  2
GREAT CORMORANT  1     Young bird perched on rocks off North Hampton
State Beach with DCCO.  Distinctly larger with thick bill and some white
around chin.  Belly not well seen.
Snowy Egret  8     No sign of Little Egret.
Willow Flycatcher  2

Subject: [NHBirds] Mississippi Kite NEST in Durham
The Mississippi Kite nest in Durham has been found and apparently word
is getting out and several birders have now visited.  I first heard
about it from Allan Murray earlier this week.  Jane and I visited the
nest today and readily found it with a bird incubating. More
importantly, I talked for a while with the home owners.  They were VERY
NICE and did not have any major objections to having birders staring at
the nest from the road side.  I told them there may be lots of visiting
birders and they didn't seem to mind as long as people stayed on the
road and did not trespass.  I gave them my name, email, and phone number
if birders were misbehaving.

The nest is in back of the house at #85 Madbury Road in Durham. This is
on the west side of Madbury Road, just south of Edgewood. It is several
houses north of last year's nest.  It is in a white pine tree, and I
believe there is only one obvious pine tree so the nest is quite obvious
from the road.  There is a SIDEWALK and great viewing opportunities from
the sidewalk at #86 Madbury Road (a house that is for sale).  Like last
year, mornings would be much better lighting with the sun behind you. 
Afternoons are tough lighting.

Like last year, parking is at your own risk.  I don't believe there is
"legal" parking anywhere along here.  DON'T BLOCK ANY DRIVEWAYS.

Steve Mirick
Bradford, MA

P.S.  Despite the rather cold, raw, rainy week.  All 3 kite nests,
including one each in Newmarket and Stratham, seem to be doing OK. They
were certainly swaying in the strong winds this afternoon, however!

Subject: [NHBirds] Do you bird in Bear Brook State Park?
I know that Pawtuckaway is a favorite destination for birders, but I am less aware of birding activity at Bear Brook. Nonetheless, I wanted birders to be aware that The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the Bear Brook State Park Management Plan Steering Committee are in the process of revising the management plan for Bear Brook State Park. There will be a public listening session at NH Fish & Game (11 Hazen Drive in Concord) from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. next Thursday, June 27. The purpose of the session is to hear opinions from local and state-wide associations and organizations, recreational clubs, forestry and wildlife professionals, and citizens on the current management of the property, existing uses, and desire and suitability of new uses at Bear Brook State Park.

If you are unable to attend the session but have opinions or ideas you would like to share, you can send them to <Johanna.Lyons...><mailto:<Johanna.Lyons...>.

I am serving on the steering committee, so you are welcome to contact me as well.

Happy birding!

Hi to all our Barefoot Bay Birders,
I am not sure if all our American friends will be able to follow this link
to an article posted by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp). It describes
a fatal disease that is killing many gregarious birds especially finches.
Have a look. It recommends taking down your bird feeders as the disease
spreads through moist bird seed and bird-baths. Our feathered friends
certainly need our help.
Thanks.
... Greg

Subject: [NHBirds] LEE TADPOLE STROLL, Saturday
With permission of the moderator:

This Saturday I'll be leading the Lee Conservation Commission's 2nd annual
Tadpole Stroll. What better way to celebrate the day-old season than by
dipping for critters in the Town Forest's Mast Way vernal pool? Last
year's expedition had folks dipping up fairy shrimp, wood frog tadpoles,
spotted salamander tadpoles, tiny spring peeper tadpoles, and the larvae of
invertebrates such as dragonflies, damselflies, predaceous diving beetles,
caddis flies with their remarkable cocoons, and the strange, scarlet larvae
of blind mosquitoes (non-biting midges). With this spring's abundant rain,
the pool's water level remains quite high and it is brimful with life.

Dipping containers will be available, but feel free to bring your own. A
magnifying glass is also helpful. This is mosquito/tick season, so come
prepared, and wear waterproof footwear (or sneakers that you don't mind
getting wet....).

All ages are welcome! We'll meet at the Lee Library parking lot at 10:00
a.m.

Subject: [NHBirds] Epping notes, Brentwood mitigation
Had a winter wren in Epping yesterday. Not a review species in e-bird, but i don’t ever remember having one here in the summer before. And I think the call notes I was hearing in the area were probably juveniles, so that’s pretty cool.

Two black-throated blue warblers and a Black-billed Cuckoo singing at the Mast Road Conservation Area this morning, but the bugs are wicked bad there now.

Visited Brentwood mitigation a week or so ago. Got a late start, 10am, but did not see or hear any Grebes. The trails are getting pretty overgrown, and lines of sight into the ponds are tougher than they used to be, so it’s possible I just missed them. Tick central, though.

Robert Ridgely and I just spotted the subject bird, along with two Snowies and a Great Egret, in the marsh adjacent to Route 1A, just south of the Rye/N Hampton town line. Birders Karen and Peg were there as well, and mentioned they saw it earlier at the usual spot across from Wallis Sands.

Subject: [NHBirds] Blue-winged Warbler pair Confirmed Nesting in Lyme
Found a nesting pair (and possibly a third individual) off Route 10 about a
mile and a half north of North Thetford Road intersection. I was able to
obtain several photos showing the adults carrying food. A photo is included
in the ebird report at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57497671. Looking
on ebird records, I do not see any nesting records for Grafton County,
though I've heard that Huntington Hill WMA in Hanover has been a reliable
spot in the past.

Took some googling, but I finally verified that these birds retain immature

Adults and immatures turn up annually along this stretch of river, but we

We were driving on RT 101 in the rain today when I spotted the Trumpeter
swan from the car window.
Was able to pull over and confirm with binocs and get some pictures. Sure
comes in handy to be a
birder and carry these items with you at all times!
Can anyone shed any light on why it may be here and staying so long.Why
wouldn't it have left in the spring to
seek a mate? I read it will likely molt in July/Aug so cannot fly then. I
hope it will fly away before fall.

Subject: [NHBirds] Dixville Peak Highlights
Today, Joe Bourget and I traveled north up to the wind farm at the top of Dixville Peak in Dixville in search of boreal birds. It was a good time, even though we missed out on some species we hoped for like Boreal Chickadee, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and Fox Sparrow. The following are our highlights:

OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER: Two birds singing along some of the logged areas along the access road.

BICKNELL’S THRUSH: Three singing birds just below the turbines. An exciting turnout considering we worked hard to find just one when we came up two years ago. It’s reassuring to still see that this species is still so prevalent here since I helped conduct research with this species here back in 2011.

SWAINSON’S THRUSH: Four singing along the road below the turbines.

MOURNING WARBLER: Three singing birds in some of the the logged areas along the access roads.

BLACKPOLL WARBLER: At least 8 birds including some great up-close views of a female.

Here’s a link to the full checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57404534

Afterwards we went over the border to Moose Bog in the Wenlock WMA in Island Pond, VT where we got to see a male BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER near a recently discovered nest sight. I know it’s extralimital, but it finally ended my almost 8 year drought of seeing this species!

Subject: [NHBirds] Mississippi Kites X 6!!!
Southeastern New Hampshire continues to be the "hot spot" in the
northeastern United States for Mississippi Kites.  At least 3
territories are again firmly in place.  After fledging three birds last
year (a single chick from each nest), let's hope for another good season
this year.

STRATHAM TERRITORY - 2 birds - One bird seen INCUBATING IN NEST with a
second bird soaring nearby.  Not sure when incubation started, perhaps
very recently.  This is a new nest site found by Sharon Markey and is
about 1,000' away from last year's nest.  It is high up in a WHITE PINE
tree.  The kites certainly are using a variety of trees and this is the
2nd time they've used a white pine in NH.  The nest is along the
driveway of a residence in the side yard, in a residential neighborhood
with mature trees (like all other nests). Unfortunately, THE NEST CAN
NOT BE SEEN FROM THE ROAD and I'm keeping this nest site location quiet.

NEWMARKET TERRITORY - 1 bird - One bird seen quietly incubating today
high up in red oak along a driveway.  Started incubation at least 1 week
ago.  We didn't search for a 2nd.  Again, this nest appears to be in the
same tree and perhaps the exact location as last year.  Again, I am
keeping this nest site location quiet.

DURHAM TERRITORY - 3 birds! - We got a SPECTACULAR aerial show today of
3 birds together.  Soaring very low over the houses and trees in the
vicinity of Maple Street and Madbury Road in Durham.  At one point, a
bird did a high spectacular dive that dropped a few hundred feet like a
bullet that would have made a Peregrine Falcon jealous! I'm not
comfortable yet with sexing birds, but it may have been 2 males and a
female.  Most of the time, it was just two birds following each other
low over the tree tops, back and forth giving spectacular views.  After
about 10 minutes of driving me crazy, I ran back to get my camera....and
of course....everyone disappeared when I returned!!!  The presence of 3
birds is a bit of a mystery. Jim and Katy had copulation here 3 days
ago.  I was kind of hoping that there would be a bird incubating by
now.  Is this 3 birds of 4 and one is incubating?  Or is this just a
pair with a helper and no incubation started yet?  The nest tree from
last year didn't look to be a focal point today and, although there are
some sticks up in that tree, they may be remnants of last year's nest.

Three or more pairs of nesting bobolinks in a very large Belmont, NH meadow.  What an exuberant, talkative bird and so enjoyable to watch.  They have been around for nearly a month now.  Sent from my Verizon 4G LTE smartphone

The Pair of Mississippi Kite's were very active on Madbury road in Durham late morning, flying back and fourth catching bugs. I observed one bird feeding the other high up in a tree a few houses up for the original nesting site. They did not seem to stay in any one area and I lost the pair flying towards the high school.

Subject: [NHBirds] Piping Plover Chicks - Hampton SP
Four fluffy bits of popcorn (Piping Plover chicks) were running around
Hampton Beach SP, near Concord Ave. A pair is still incubating at the
other exclosure, and another pair seems to have claimed the volley ball
court.

A Least Tern pair is nesting in the same spot as previous years. 2 eggs
were visible when the bird flew to chase two other Leasts that were flying
around in the area.

From: <danafox...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Loons on the coast at this time of year
A few notes on life cycle of the loon.

When a NH loon chick successfully manages to leave its natal lake in the
late fall, it heads to the ocean for the winter. It will remain on the
ocean until it is three - yes - THREE - years old before it returns to
nearby where is was born. For three more years it does this - going to the
ocean in the winter and returning to near where it was born before it is
sexually mature enough to mate and begin its own nesting cycle. Since loons
do not mate for life, it will compete with older loons to secure a mate and
a nesting territory when it is six years old.

Since loons usually lay only two eggs and have this delayed nesting cycle,
it is very important that we all make every loon count and try to ensure
their success.

Contact the Loon Preservation Committee (LPC) in Moultonboro, NH for more
information and to help preserve loons..

Thanks to Steve's heads-up I was able to see and take some pictures of the
bird.............and, meet Steve for the first time. He was there when I
arrived and had his spotting scope on the bird.

He left around noon-time to get a bite to eat. I hung around for about 20
minutes more hoping the bird would come closer. But instead, it flew off
with three Snowy's circling the marsh three times. Then the group flew over
the road in front of me and headed north up the coast line. I drove north as
far as Odiorne State Park and checked out the marshes there. No luck. I then
hooked up with Steve again and told him the bird flew north along the coast
line. He headed out in that direction and I headed back home. Hope he had
luck re-locating them.

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, June 10, 2019
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, June 10th, 2019.



A LITTLE EGRET was seen with 5 SNOWY EGRETS in the marsh located on the west
side of Route 1A opposite Wallis Sands on June 8th, but it has not been
relocated.



A TRUMPETER SWAN was discovered at NH Audubon’s Abe Emerson Marsh in Candia
on April 13th, has continued being seen there, and was last reported on June
8th.



2 MISSISSIPPI KITES were seen soaring over Madbury Road and Oyster River
High School in Durham, 2 were seen in Newmarket, and 1 was seen near the
Great Bay Discovery Center in Greenland, all on June 8th.



2 BLACK VULTURES were seen at Fall Mountain in North Walpole on June 10th.



An ACADIAN FLYCATCHER was reported from NH Audubon’s Popple Island Wildlife
Sanctuary in Epsom on June 6th. The bird was singing from a beaver-dammed
section of Lockes Brook just north of the Loop Trail. Access to and around
the sanctuary is challenging due to parking constraints (roadside only, and
please do not block the road or any driveways) and Class VI road conditions,
which are currently very muddy.



There was an unconfirmed report of a CERULEAN WARBLER in Hancock on June
9th.



A flock of 10 RED KNOTS was seen in Hampton Harbor on June 7th.



A PURPLE SANDPIPER and a DUNLIN were seen on the coast on June 3rd.



A flock of 25 BRANT were seen along the coast in Rye on June 5th.



10 PURPLE MARTINS were seen nesting south of Hampton Harbor in Seabrook on
June 7th.



5 GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS were reported from the Concord Airport on June 5th.



4 AMERICAN PIPITS were seen on Mount Washington, above treeline where they
breed, on June 9th.



Late migrants seen along the coast included a RED-THROATED LOON on June 4th,
and a RED-NECKED GREBE on June 5th.



This message is also available by phone recording: call (603) 224-9909 and
press 4 as directed or ask to be transferred. If you have seen any
interesting birds recently, you can leave a message at the end of the
recording or send your sightings to the RBA via e-mail at:
<birdsetc...> Please put either "bird sighting" or "Rare Bird
Alert" in the subject line and be sure to include your mailing address and
phone number. The RBA is also available on-line at the New Hampshire Audubon
web site, www.nhaudubon.org

Thanks very much and good birding.

I saw four American Pipits on Mt Washington on Sunday while doing plant surveys. It was a beautiful day on the mountain with light winds allowing for hearing the pipits call and getting some photos. The pipits were along the Great Gulf Headwall along the Gulfside Trail. I was also in the Alpine Garden area for a good part of the morning but did not notice any pipits there.

Subject: [NHBirds] Little Egret - No, Acadian Flycatcher - NO, but 2 Mississippi Kites in Durham
I started the day searching the coast for the Little Egret from
yesterday, but no luck.  In fact, there were several other birders
searching as well, but no luck.  From what I heard, there were no
definite sightings at least into the mid-afternoon.  Kind of
frustrating.....let's hope it returns!

Then I headed to Pawtuckaway in search of an Acadian Flycatcher reported
yesterday.  I met up with Susan Wrisley, Zeke Cornell, and Becky Suomala
as well.  We spent about 2 hours searching the park, bu none of us had
any luck with the flycatcher....or Cerulean. (however, we didn't hike up
Middle Mountain Trail)  The last Acadian Flycatcher I had at Pawtuckway
SP was back in 2003!!!  My prior sightings (by song) from Pawtuckaway SP
were 7/7/91, 7/13/98, 5/24/99, 5/14/00, and 6/8/03.

The bird list was rather ordinary, and typical for Pawtuckaway SP:

Jun 9, 2019 8:19 AM - 10:44 AM
45 species
----------------------------------------
Wood Duck  3
Mourning Dove  1
Ruby-throated Hummingbird  1
Great Blue Heron  1
Turkey Vulture  1
Red-shouldered Hawk  1     Heard only.
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker  1     Drumming.
Eastern Wood-Pewee  3
Least Flycatcher  6
Eastern Phoebe  2
Great Crested Flycatcher  3
Yellow-throated Vireo  3
Blue-headed Vireo  2
Red-eyed Vireo  18
Blue Jay  3
Tree Swallow  1
Tufted Titmouse  1
Brown Creeper  2     Both singing.
Veery  4
Wood Thrush  2
American Robin  3
Gray Catbird  2
Cedar Waxwing  1
American Goldfinch  1
Chipping Sparrow  1
Song Sparrow  2
Baltimore Oriole  2
Red-winged Blackbird  5
Brown-headed Cowbird  2
Common Grackle  1
Ovenbird  11
Louisiana Waterthrush  1     Singing from Hemlock grove.
Black-and-white Warbler  1
Common Yellowthroat  3
American Redstart  5
Yellow Warbler  2
Chestnut-sided Warbler  1
Black-throated Blue Warbler  1     Singing along loop road near an
historic spot where I typically get this species.
Pine Warbler  3
Prairie Warbler  1     Power lines.
Black-throated Green Warbler  1     Hemlock Grove only.
Scarlet Tanager  2
Northern Cardinal  1
Rose-breasted Grosbeak  1
Indigo Bunting  1     Power lines.

Then I headed back to Durham and checked out on the Mississippi Kites. 
When I got to last year's nest tree along Madbury Road, I couldn't see
any definite signs of a new nest, but there appeared to be some sticks
(remains from last year?) in last year's location.  I soon located 2
kites, possibly a male and female, circling and feeding above Madbury
Road to the north.  So....good to see 2 kites, and, assuming there isn't
a 3rd bird around, then it appears they haven't started incubation yet.

There’s one calling behind my house. I played a Cerulean song on my ipad, and it came in close, so I got a visual as well. I was also able to record it singing from a nearby Hemlock tree. Also can hear red-eyed vireo, black-throated blue and the ubiquitous oven birds.

Subject: [NHBirds] some Durham highlights
Birders,

I am happy to report that the state's strategic prairie warbler reserve is full, courtesy of the Thompson Forest and state land on Bennett Road, both in Durham. In both places it's pretty much impossible to avoid the little tail-waggers and their wonderful song. If they would just eat ticks they'd be perfect, but it may be that they do eat ticks and hence are so plentiful.


At Bennett Road, there also were chestnut-sided and blue-winged warblers everywhere, with field sparrows, veeries, and other nice singers. The highlight though was a Nashville warbler (not to be confused with the similar Memphis crooner), which seems pretty late. A yellow-billed cuckoo also was calling. I first birded that spot on May 4th and have piled up 76 species already.


At home, a black-billed cuckoo was calling this morning, so a two-cuckoo day isn't just at work.


Moore fields was crawling with bobolinks, at least 20, including some across the road, but that density was in part because UNH is mowing the right side of the field, so not really good news. I have to think that the birds are nesting by now, and the way the males were competing made me wonder if displaced males were crowding established males. Or maybe they're just naturally ornery...

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon field trip: Ashuelot Headwaters Forest, Lempster NH (Sunday, 06/09/19)
It was a great morning for a bird walk through the spruce forests of
Lempster this morning for 6 participants of the NH Audubon field trip to
Lempster Town Forest and Ashuelot Headwaters forest. Warblers were not
very vocal but everyone had good looks at Canada, Blackburnian and
Yellow-rumped Warblers which were the most numerous behind Ovenbirds. A
pair of Winter Wrens were singing at each other as if they were in a
singing competition. Full eBird list below

********************************************************************************************************************************************
The NH Coast was absolutely dead this morning with spring migration now
over. I worked my way quickly up the coast and was almost ready to head
inland when I searched through a group of Snowy Egrets in Rye and found
a nice breeding plumage LITTLE EGRET with 5 Snowy Egrets! Fortunately,
the bird stuck around all day and was seen by lots of birders. It had
two beautiful lanceolate shaped head plumes and nice gray-blue lores.
Photos were difficult for everyone today due to the heat shimmer:

This species has had a "checkered" and controversial history in New
Hampshire as follows:

4/28/1990 - A Little Egret was found and identified by Pam Hunt in Rye
and I subsequently relocated it in Hampton Falls. I remember walking
way out into the marshes on a cold, raw, windy, foggy day in April to
photograph this bird and then running to find a phone booth (remember
them?) and pouring money into the phone calling people. This sighting
came just months after the first United States record from Plum Island
in Massachusetts so there was a lot of excitement! This bird was seen by
lots of people and (at the time) was thought to be the 2nd US record for
Little Egret. Some caution about the ID grew over the years and the
record was ultimately REJECTED by the NHRBC and it is believe that this
individual might have actually been a hybrid. David Sibley used my
photo of this bird in this article:

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sibleyguides.com_2011_08_possible-2Dhybrid-2Dlittle-2Dx-2Dsnowy-2Degrets_&d=DwIFaQ&c=c6MrceVCY5m5A_KAUkrdoA&r=SE5zteKFfWX5ZENcFmEBQrX3sVk9qAkT5a0TvIKJPts&m=ZHkRjtatZn5MtRAVUepxnoE07LPMKKqv-RQGDg8-LHQ&s=xKAilSnADoGE71_jCsWEyYyhAsCOMuzz7WpL75fOJZY&e=

8/2/1992 - Steven Abbott (Denny Abbott's son) documented (with drawings)
a Little Egret (without head plumes) in Hampton Falls marshes. Denny
got to see it, but it was gone by the time I got over to look for it,
and it was never seen again. The record was accepted by the NHRBC, but
was only seen by 2 people so it would not qualify as a first State record.

6/30/1998 - I found a Little Egret in the saltmarshes off Bay Road in
Newmarket that stuck around into mid-August. At that time, it was
private property, but it is now known as the "Lubberland Creek Preserve"
owned by TNC. The bird had only a single neck plume and became quite
famous as this species was still very rare in the United States. People
from all over the US came to see this bird in the 6 weeks that it
visited the marsh. One person flew in from Seattle just to see this
bird and then turned around and flew back to Seattle as soon as he saw
it! Another group of young birders all piled into a truck and drove
straight from Michigan to see it!

6/8/2019 - Today's bird is the first in full breeding plumage for NH.
Remarkably, it took 21 years for another NH record as the species has
increased dramatically in the eastern US and Canada and has been
annually reported in Maine since 2015. Many of Maine's records likely
represent a single individual bird, but there have been distinctly two
birds this year in Maine with one at Scarborough Marsh last weekend. It
is likely this bird is one of Maine's recent birds. For the last two
decades, EVERY SINGLE TIME I see a Snowy Egret, I take the time to check
to make sure it isn't a Little Egret. It finally paid off today! :-)

In other news......I checked the Stratham Mississippi Kites nest spot
from last year, but no luck. I talked to my contact in this
neighborhood and she had a nice photo of a single bird, so at least one
bird (and hopefully two) are back on territory. In Newmarket, I checked
the nest spot from last year and bingo! Almost, or perhaps exactly, in
the same spot as last year, a female is now incubating in a nest high in
an oak. I didn't drive to Durham and check out on this nest area yet.

Subject: [NHBirds] Knots and Brant on coast




Mike Marchand and I were on the coast today for my final shorebird survey of the season. Migrants were sparse, with a single Semi Sandpiper near Little Jacks and a Black-bellied Plover on the far side of Hampton Harbor from the Yankee Co-op. On a second pass by the plover, I discovered a flock of 10 Red Knots that had not been there previously. Steve got the word out and before we left Leo McKillop showed up to see them as well! Breeding shorebirds were more in evidence, with multiple Willets in the harbor area - including a mating pair at the south end of the Seabrook Flats. Near Little Jacks there was a mostly-grown Killdeer Chick in the same place as a copulating pair, making me wonder if they were attempting a second brood.

Working up the coast, our only highlight was a lone Brant off Ragged Neck, but we didn't scan the ocean very carefully in Rye.

Then we shifted to Cliff Swallow surveys, starting with the pair nest-building at Fort Constitution previously reported by Jim Sparrell. Checks at two historic sites on private property in Dover found them at one.

For those who might not be aware of if, NH Fish and Game listed Cliff Swallow as "threatened" in 2017 - on the basis of long-term declines in both the number and size of colonies. Based on recent surveys and a perusal of eBird data, there are probably only 25 colonies in the state (they were confirmed in 80+ blocks in the Breeding Bird Atlas in the early 1980s), and these support roughly 120 pairs. Of these, 3-4 are in the seacoast area, half a dozen in the Lakes Region, and the rest in the North Country (especially Pittsburg). Right now I *think* I know where most of the colonies are, but there is always the potential for smaller ones to go under the radar. If anyone finds Cliff Swallows during their travels, you are encouraged to watch them more carefully to see if you can determine where they might be nesting. And if you FIND the nests, please enter the location into eBird with appropriate notation (e.g., precise location, number of nests) or otherwise get the information to me at NH Audubon so I can follow up on it.

Thanks, and good birding,

Pam Hunt

Subject: [NHBirds] More on color banded Roseate Tern
Just a bit more information regarding the reporting of color banded
birds.....and actually any bird band that is found or read.

The "official" method for reporting bird bands is through the USGS Bird
Banding Laboratory (BBL) web site:

https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBL/bblretrv/

I submitted my sighting of the Roseate Tern through them and found out
that it was banded as a baby in Maine in 2011 so this bird is now going
on 8 years old.  Through a contact, I found out that it was banded on
Stratton Island just south of Portland, ME, not on White & Seavey
Islands.  Apparently they don't disclose precise original banding
locations for endangered birds?....or all birds?

The funny thing is that if you submit the sighting to the BBL, then you
don't get any other data such as past re-sightings of the same
individual bird.  All you get for information is the original banding data.

The other web site to submit color-banded birds is through the Banded
Birds web site:

http://bandedbirds.org/index.html

This web site appears to be much more focused on shorebird re-sightings
with color bands.  Although they accept color bands for other bird
species as well.  This site is run through New Jersey Audubon, Delaware
Fish & Wildlife and US Fish & Wildlife (not to be confused with USGS BBL!)

The funny thing is that if you submit the sighting to this web page, you
don't get the original banding data!  BUT you sometimes get interesting
resightings data.  That's how I learned my Roseate Tern was resighted at
Plum Island last fall!

Sounds strangely confusing?  Yes it is!

There have been a few good birds around on this side of the bay this week. I may have even seen some of them.


On Sunday there was a Louisiana Waterthrush singing on Mill Road in Durham, which isn't too unusual except that it was pretty far from the Oyster River, all the way past Hemlock Lane/Foss farm entrance.


On Monday evening, on the trail behind the Nottingham town hall, things were very quiet (zero ovenbirds?), but there was the always present sapsucker and several waxwings.


On Tuesday, I checked out Lubberland creek in Newmarket and admired the new martin houses, complete with a martin decoy that fooled me for a second. The bayside trail had a Nelson's sparrow singing and 2 semi-palmated plovers. The freshwater side had 8+ occupied heron nests and an occupied osprey nest.


Last evening I was very surprised to see 4 nighthawks over the UNH campus (boulder fields, near the football stadium).


This morning I plowed through the wet field at Lamprey River preserve in Durham on Packers Falls Road. Besides an army of ticks and a gallon of water in my boots, I came away with a pair of blue-winged warblers, singing alder and willow flycatchers at the opposite end of the swale, and several Indigo Buntings. I was surprised to have no bobolinks, bluebirds, or open field sparrows.

Subject: [NHBirds] Acadian Flycatcher -No
Zeke Cornell and I tried for the Acadian that Phil had at NH Audubon's
Popple Island Sanctuary yesterday but with no luck.
There is a water crossing for which boots are desirable.
Note on directions - from Rt. 28 take Webster Mills Road but be sure
to fork left at the unmarked junction with New Orchard Road. Then
watch for Locke Road on the right which maps call Lockes Hill Road.

Subject: [NHBirds] Seacoast Purple Martin update
After another cold and rainy spring, things are looking up at the Seabrook
Martin Colony off of Cross Beach Road. Unlike the previous two years, we did
not find any dead wet Martins in our gourds. There was one dead adult male
found on the road by a neighbor that appeared in good condition. It could
have been struck by a predator. The weather did pose a challenge however. We
did four supplemental feedings by placing freeze-dried meal worms and
crickets in the gourds during breaks in cold stormy periods. All of which
had disappeared by the next nest check, so we believe that helped the early
arrivals get through some tough weather. Below is my report from yesterday:



June 6, 2019: Warren Tested and I were able to get into Seabrook after the
rain stopped and before the tide came rushing back into the "moat". We had
eggs in 9 of the gourds for a total of 34 eggs. One gourd had 6 eggs, 4 had
5 each, 1 had 4, 1 had 2 and 2 had 1. We counted 15 Martins leaving the
gourds, and 18 returning. Only 1 of the gourds had no nesting activity and 4
of the eggless nests had green leaves added. So a big change in the last
week! And much more egg laying to come. No sign yet of the Martins harassing
the swallows, so I am thinking that last year's fledglings have yet to
arrive. When Warren and I went to Seabrook yesterday we saw what appeared to
be Martins feeding on the ground. This is something we have never seen
before. Martins were continuously going to the ground around the gourds (to
hundreds of feet away from the gourd rack and onto the surface of the high
marsh). We watched for 5-10 minutes and it never varied. Up and down on a
frequency of 10's of seconds. None were seen carrying grass and most gourds
had complete nests, so I think that can be ruled out. It appeared that the
entire group was doing this.



The new site off Island Path Road in Hampton has no Martins and two Tree
Swallow nests, one of which was very well developed with a lining of
feathers but no eggs visible.



On private land in Rye a Martin nest site with 14 gourds has eggs and more
Martins than ever. We also have reports of Martin sightings at the restored
nests at the Portsmouth Country Club. Earlier this spring Warren Trested,
John Cavanagh and myself assisted the installation of a brand new 6 gourd
nest site on land owned by The nature Conservancy in Newmarket.



The work in Seabrook, Hampton and at the TNC is supported by Pam Hunt's NH
Audubon Aerial Insectivore Project and the efforts of volunteers.

Subject: [NHBirds] Acadian Flycatcher in Epsom
I heard an Acadian Flycatcher singing for about 10 minutes this morning during a visit to the NH Audubon Popple Island Wildlife Sanctuary in Epsom as I was assessing forest habitat for songbirds. The subject bird was singing from a beaver-dammed section of Lockes Brook just north of the Loop Trail.

Access to and around the sanctuary is challenging due to parking constraints (roadside only, and please do not block the road or any driveways) and Class VI road conditions, which are currently very muddy and rutted. Trail conditions this morning were also very wet due to high spring water including last night's heavy rainfall, and the wet stream crossing on the trail is currently NOT advised. Also be advised of the presence of both deer and wood ticks, especially off-trails, but also in grassy parts of the Loop Trail (I had several of each this morning). However, I was able to easily hear the flycatcher from the trail just before the stream crossing before the bird moved further to the north.
A trail guide to the sanctuary is available here:http://www.nhaudubon.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Popple-Island-Trail-Guide.pdf
NH Audubon has plans to expand parking and improve the loop trail in the coming year or so. We are developing a management plan for this property, which includes a plan to manage forest habitat for birds. In addition to the flycatcher, I recorded 41 other species this morning. The southwestern corner of the loop trail runs adjacent to a large ~10-year old clearcut that has regenerated thickly with hardwoods and contains good numbers of Eastern Towhees, Chestnut-sided Warblers, and this morning, at least one Prairie Warbler. Likely other early successional forest species, too. Please note that this area is privately-owned land, so please respect that and bird the area from the Loop Trail if you do visit.
Other interesting habitats are the shoreline areas and shrub edge along Odiorne Pond, especially near the mapped 'wetland overlook' area. A Nashville Warbler was singing from here this morning.
A full eBird checklist is available here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57139035

Subject: [NHBirds] Reminder -- Mascoma River Greenway Birding Walk This Saturday, the 8th
Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee member Jeff MacQueen will be hosting a
birding event this coming Saturday along the recently opened (July 21,
2018) Mascoma River Greenway Trail (MRG). This paved, segment offers lovely
views of the Mascoma River along its course beginning just east of Alice
Peck Day Hospital (APD) then traveling westerly to its current terminus
near Glen Road and the Miracle Mile. Expect to see a good variety of
songbirds and perhaps some waterfowl.

Meet at the trail's access point parking area opposite APD on Mascoma
Street. From any starting point, head to *I-89 Exit 19*. Coming from the
west, turn right at the bottom of the ramp and head towards Lebanon on
Mechanic Street. From the east, turn left at the bottom of the *Exit 19*
ramp and also head toward Lebanon on Mechanic Street. After about a ½ mile,
you’ll see a left hand turn that passes through the old granite underpass.
On the other side, turn right onto Mascoma Street. The parking area will be
on your right a few hundred feet farther along.

Foot travel will be on a level, paved surface. Bring binoculars and/or a
spotting scope as you prefer. Bug repellent, particularly with tick
prevention in mind, is highly recommended.

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

The walk is co-sponsored by the Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon and the
Mascoma River Local Advisory Committee.

Some birders who saw the Arctic Tern in Rye on Sunday also may have
noticed that one of the Roseate Terns had an engraved color band on its
left leg.  A red band with white lettering engraved D08.

I submitted the data to the bird banding web page:

http://report.bandedbirds.org/default.aspx

The web page didn't indicate where it was originally banded; however,
there was a re-sighting of this same individual on August 6, 2018 at the
southern tip of Plum Island.  So...perhaps a local bird from the Isles
of Shoals?

Here by our house in Rumney a Louisiana Waterthrush has been singing three of the last four days. It is in a deep hemlock lined gully with a small stream, typical habitat. Perhaps all the rain has kept the flow high enough for it to be attracted. Also noted on Saturday, a pair of Spotted Sandpipers on the Baker River, with the male displaying.

Photographed a mating pair of Wood Turtles along the river. First time I’ve seen mating turtles of any species in 47 years in NH.

Yesterday’s meadow walk included a deer and a bear.

Subject: [NHBirds] Barred Owl Nests Drop From 7 to 4; Production Late and Sparse
It’s only a small sample, but here in Hampstead the number of occupied
Barred Owl nest boxes has dropped from seven last year to only four this
year. In addition, fledging was later than normal and fewer young seem to
have been produced. With fewer fledglings it’s harder to ascertain exact
fledge dates, but the owlets seem to have fledged about June 1, later than
the average of May 20-22 and much later than the earliest dates of May 15.

Speculation is that the absence of a cone or mast crop last year put food
stress on Barred Owls last winter, as evidenced by the number of daytime
roadside owls and highway fatalities. A shortage of food would prevent the
females from accumulating enough fat reserves to begin breeding, and may
have affected the number of eggs laid.

This is all part of nature, but it points out once again the important
absence of the chestnut trees in our forests today. Because they flowered
late and were unaffected by frosts, they may have served to even out the
mast supply. We’ll never know for sure.

In any event, 2020 is coming and I would not be surprised to see a recovery.

From: Mascoma Chapter NH Audubon <mascomabirds...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Mascoma River Greenway Bird Walk Coming Up
For the third consecutive year, Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee member
Jeff MacQueen will lead a bird walk along the Mascoma River on the Northern
Rail Trail.

This year's trip will explore the newly opened (July 21, 2018) Mascoma
River Greenway Trail (MRG). This paved, segment offers lovely views of the
Mascoma River along its course beginning just east of Alice Peck Day
Hospital (APD) then traveling westerly to its current terminus near Glen
Road and the Miracle Mile. Expect to see a good variety of songbirds and
perhaps some waterfowl.

Meet at the access point parking area opposite APD on Mascoma Street. From
any starting point, head to I-89 Exit 17. Coming from the west, turn right
at the bottom of the ramp and head towards Lebanon on Mechanic Street. From
the east, turn left at the bottom of the Exit 17 ramp and also head toward
Lebanon on Mechanic Street. After about a ½ mile, you’ll see a left hand
turn that passes through the old granite underpass. On the other side, turn
right onto Mascoma Street. The parking area will be on your right a few
hundred feet farther along.

Foot travel will be on a level, paved surface. Bring binoculars and/or a
spotting scope as you prefer. Bug repellent, particularly with tick
prevention in mind, is highly recommended.

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

The walk is co-sponsored by the Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon and the
Mascoma River Local Advisory Committee.

Subject: [NHBirds] Pawtuckaway State Park today
I met up with Susan Wrisley this morning and we birded parts of
Pawtuckaway SP.  Focusing on the Middle Mountain trail in hopes of
finding a Cerulean Warbler.....no luck....again!  A population "boom" of
Cerulean Warblers occurred in the park in the mid to late 1990's and
early 2000's.  The species was generally an annual occurrence back then
with my high count being 6 adult birds on June 8, 1996 (4 singing males,
1 female, 1 incubating female). But the species has slowly disappeared
and my last sighting of Cerulean Warbler at Pawtuckaway SP was in 2010
along this same trail, although I search (in vain) every year.  This was
my 2nd hike up the Middle Mountain trail this year with no luck.  It may
be that this species is now gone from the park.  And sadly, they seem to
be "butchering" the park with extensive forest cutting in areas.
Hopefully this does not continue into the more productive birding areas
of the park.

Pawtuckaway SP, Nottingham/Deerfield, Rockingham, New Hampshire, US
Jun 3, 2019 8:50 AM - 11:26 AM
Comments:     Late morning visit to park.  Generally cool and windy. 
Not a complete effort.  Met up with Susan Wrisley and we spent some time
walking up Middle Mountain Trail in hopes of Cerulean Warbler, but
(again) no luck.  A Black-throated Blue Warbler singing along the trail
gave us some hope, but alas, no luck.

Thank you very much, the problem is there is no colored band however I found an email address for pic that can be sent if you don't have all the information such as band color or complete numbers.

Hopefully they will be able to ID.

Again thanks so much,

Hi Deb,

You can report bands here for any species. www.reportband.gov

They send you a nice little PDF certificate with some info about the bird
(when & where banded) if they are able to match it. (I reported a herring
gull with a band at Eel pond last month--they said it was banded in 2014 as
a chick near York, ME).

From: Stephen Mirick <smirick...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Nice coastal day (Caspian & Arctic Terns, Parasitic Jaeger, 2 Mourning Warblers, etc.)
For the 2nd straight day, the coast was wrapped in fog.  But that
doesn't mean the birding wasn't any good!  It kept the beach goers away
and it led to a few nice birds.  The first week of June marks the end of
spring migration, but there are still some migrants around.  Random
comments of species seen today:

RED-NECKED GREBE - 2 lingering birds.  One off Great Boar's Head and
another (continuing) bird off Little Boar's Head.  Also a lot of
lingering Black Scoters and a couple of Surf Scoters and two
Red-throated Loons today.

BLACK GUILLEMOT - Two from Little Boar's Head.  Seems to be a lot around
this spring.

PURPLE SANDPIPER - 3 continue at Ragged Neck in Rye thanks to a tip from
Jim Sparrell.  I always tell people Purple Sandpipers are fairly common
in May right up until the last day of May and then they disappear
abruptly.  I only have 3 other June sightings.  Ten on 6/1/98, eight on
6/1/03, and five on 6/6/03.  So these are my 2nd latest records.  There
are mid-summer records from the Isles of Shoals.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/47988787102/in/photostream/lightbox/

RUDDY TURNSTONE - 4 continue at Ragged Neck in Rye.  Nice breeding
plumage males and females.

SHOREBIRDS - Other than the noteworthy Purples and turnstones, we had
remarkably few shorebirds this weekend.  Spring shorebird migration
continues well into June, but we only had a couple of Semipalmated
Plovers today and no sandpipers or Black-bellies or dowitchers.  The
Killdeer nest in the parking lot at Ragged Neck now has babies running
around!

ARCTIC TERN - 1 adult found by Leo Mckillop at Pulpit Rocks in Rye. Nice
find and perhaps a result of the foggy weather.  This bird performed
remarkably well and stuck around for about an hour so many people got to
see it.  Although they nest out on White and Seavey Islands, they can be
very difficult to find along the shoreline.  I have very few records
over the years.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/47988836721/in/photostream/lightbox/

CASPIAN TERN  - 1 apparently migrating north off Odiorne.  Although I
only saw the tail end of this bird flying away, I am fairly confident
this is what I saw.

ROSEATE TERN - Perhaps 7 or 8 foraging with the assorted terns at Pulpit
Rocks.  Beautiful birds.  Some with a nice rosy breast.  One bird was
color-banded and we are going to see if we can look up the numbers we
read off of it.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/47988786937/in/photostream/lightbox/

PARASITIC JAEGER - A shocking surprise.  As I was photographing the
Purple Sandpiper at Ragged Neck, I looked up and saw a bird flying
north.  I thought it was a Laughing Gull until I got my binoculars on
it!  Fortunately, I got a decent photo before it passed by.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/47988778647/in/photostream/lightbox/

MOURNING WARBLER - 2 (!).  Always a nice bird to get along the coast, it
was nice to see two today.  And great looks at both. First a female (or
possibly young male) along the entrance road at the Seabrook wastewater
treatment plant.  Nice views in the misty fog from about 20 feet away
while we sat in the car!!!  Then a second bird....an adult male at
Ragged Neck in Rye.  Jane first spotted it in the lone bush toward the
point near the event tent. It foraged and preened in here for a while,
then started flying all over the place.  From bush to bush as it word
west off of the point.  We got great looks but it too a while before I
(finally) got a documentation photo when it landed on a log in the open
near the cove at the parking area.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/47988785983/in/photostream/lightbox/

MIGRANT WARBLERS - We had a decent number of late migrant warblers
today.  Other than the Mourning Warblers, which are notorious for
migrating in late May and early June, we also had a lot of late migrant
Magnolia Warblers and American Redstarts, and also had a couple of
Canada Warblers.  Numbers should quickly dwindle over the next week.

MIGRANT FLYCATCHERS - Not as many as I hoped for.  Jason Lambert had a
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher near Ragged Neck, but we only managed an 
Alder Flycatcher at Odiorne a couple of Pewees, and a couple of
unidentified empidonax flycatchers.

BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO - A cuckoo was a pleasant surprise at the tip of
Frost Point.  Perhaps an overnight arrival in the fog.

Subject: [NHBirds] murder in the peaceable kingdom
Yesterday I watched a crow circling in the back field. It went down into
the grass and emerged with a large white blob in its beak. It flew off
into the trees and shortly emerged, circling low, landing in the same area
and taking off with another white blob. This time it was pursued by what
appeared to be a red wing. It dive bombed the crow, hit it several times
and was joined by another red wing. Both birds slammed the crow to no
avail The crow, with a full beak, finally flew into the trees.

Everybody has to eat.

Subject: [NHBirds] How to report a banded least tern?
Perhaps this has already been reported, but there is a banded least tern at Seabrook beach. Unfortunately it does not have a colored band only the silver band. You can make out some of the data.

Any ideas? Banded birds are so cool!


Thanks

not so great, to far away but is the same bird, can tell no colored band.

Subject: [NHBirds] Yellow-bellied Flycatchers in breeding habitat in White Mountains
Hiking up the Kinsman Mountain Trail on North Kinsman yesterday I heard at least 4 calling YBFL close the trail where it ascended through the spruce-fir forest above 3,500 feet. They were not giving their “song”, the chebunk call, but the wavering towee call, presumably a territorial call. Also, gobs of magnolia, blackpoll, yellow-rumped warblers. Did not come across any boreal chickadees, though I have had them up there before.

Subject: [NHBirds] North Country highlights, and notes
A four night/five day trip (May 27-31) toPittsburg, Errol/Umbagog (boat trip), and Pondicherry timed out nicely for migrantwarblers, with sparse foliage allowing some nice views.  Highlights: Common Goldeneye- a couple dozen stillcourting in the Rapid River (Maine) where it flows into Lake Umbagog. Ring-necked Duck- many pairs aroundUmbagog especially in the Leonard pond area of NH (with a Moose!). Common Loon- just setting up territories.At least five were calling one evening near our cabins on First Connecticut Lake, souplifting and stirring!Northern Harrier- a pair at Cherry Pondcontinue to be seen from the Tudor Richards platform. Ruffed Grouse- Many heard and one withlots of (within the range of normal) white on it sauntering across a woodsroad. Snipe- only two.Herring Gull- an adult at FirstConnecticut Lake was a bit out of place for the date. [Black-backedWoodpecker- zero. But the primary birding roads are still closed, plus, at thistime of year the species should be incubating which means they are harder tohear/find than later when the young are noisy and the adults are actively feedingthem.] Olive-sided Flycatcher- one at MoorhenMarsh, Pondicherry, was one of the few flycatchers we saw the entire time. TwoKingbirds and a couple of Phoebes were the rest. Though Katrina Fenton reportedto us that she had heard/seen a few Alders and Yellow-bellieds around Umbagog. The bulk of theflycatchers are still to come!Philadelphia Vireo- one seen. The Red-eyeswere still noticeably migrating too. Canada Jay- two adults only. Katrinareports that some young jays have fledged (while many warblers/passerines have yetto reach the area!).
Blue Jay- still migrating with flocks of eight and 15 noted.
Cliff Swallow- A couple of dozen indowntown Pittsburg putting on a wonderful show of gathering mud and buildingnests. Unfortunately, the buildings along Tabor Road only had a few CliffSwallows, so far. Boreal Chickadee- only two. Marsh Wren- two at Moorhen Marsh. Bluebird- one pair along Tabor Road. Swainson’s Thrush- still migrating, notsinging. Warblers- apparently our timing was goodwith 20 species during our visit, mostly in migrating flocks. Most common were Parulas,Magnolias, the Black-throateds (both Blue and Green), and Redstarts.Bay-breasteds were the most common “budworm” species but we had a few Cape Mayand Tennessees as well. Palm Warbler- after we had been unable to see two singing Palms near Moorhen Marsh at Pondicherry two cameand sat in a tree next to the platform while we ate our lunch! Finches- hardly any. Just a few PurpleFinches.  Noteworthy mammals- Black Bear- a motherand cub along Route 3 in Whitefield and a trailing cub (Mom not seen) on the Pondicherrytrail. Moose- six. Almost all young adults. The mostwe have seen in several years. Varying (Snowshoe) Hare- only one but itwas ultra-cooperative. LOGISTICAL NOTES: It is still early-to-midApril in northern Pittsburg. Above Second Connecticut Lake there is still somesnow in the woods and most of the hardwood trees, especially birches, aredevoid of leaves. Land bird migration will continue for another week or two upthere, at least. CONSERVATION NOTES: A big part of this tripfocused on the remarkable conservation success stories in northern NH (Connecticut RiverHeadwaters- 170,000 acres protected, Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge- 37,000 acres and growing, andthe Pondicherry NWR- 7,000 acres) and some of the people who have made it allpossible. NH Audubon has been intimately involved in all of these successstories and continues with several research projects to this day.  Bob Quinn- MWT, for Doug Bechtel- NHAudubon

On my way through Plymouth this evening I heard the unmistakable high
pitched whinny of Merlins along Highland Street. I glanced up and there was
the pair on a dead snag in a back yard. The male left and the female went
after a crow to drive it out of their territory. No doubt one of the crow's
old nests is now filled with Merlin chicks.

Subject: [NHBirds] Final "Feathered Fridays" Report
Finally, a "Feathered Fridays" outing not held tight in the grip of cold,
damp weather. Under pleasant conditions - partly sunny, dry, a light breeze
and the temperature hovering in the mid-50s, eleven participants recorded
46 species over the course three different segments explored in Hanover's
Mink Brook Nature Preserve.

A clear highlight for the morning was the spotting of a non-vocalizing,
black-billed cuckoo perched in a tree near NH Route 10. Another notable
sighting was a singing pine warbler fully visible at close (ten feet?)
range in a white pine; a bird more often heard than seen.

Full accounts of the morning's sighting can be found following these links:

Subject: [NHBirds] Final "Warbler Wednesdays" Outing
The final walk in the Mascoma Chapter's 2019 "Warbler Wednesdays" series
took place under conditions much the same as when the series began on May
1. The weather was cool and damp, albeit the temperature was in the mid-40s
and not in the mid-30s as was the case when the first walk was held. Just
the same, meteorologically speaking, it seemed as if the needle had
scarcely budged.

A dozen people participated and were rewarded with some noteworthy late
migration season sightings. An olive-sided flycatcher was seen in the woods
adjacent to the access trail on the way up to the lake, and at the lake, a
mourning warbler was discovered foraging in some brush near the shore.

In all, 43 species were tallied including three different vireo types;
red-eyed, blue-headed and yellow-throated. In addition to the mourning
warbler, ten other warblers were recorded including a blackburnian,
northern parula (three), American redstart (six) and a black-and-white. A
complete eBird list of the day's counts can be found by clicking on the
following link: https://ebird.org/nh/view/checklist/S56871573

Thanks to George Clark and Blake Allison for being co-leaders, and thanks
to Blake for keeping the eBird count.

Subject: [NHBirds] The "buds" were in Jackson today
This morning, I headed over to my Maine Breeding Bird Atlas block. While there, I got a call from Will Broussard who earlier in the a.m. had led a Tin Mountain CC bird trip to the Cross Valley Rd. area in Jackson. He told me that the area was full of warblers especially Tennessee (TEWA) for which i have been waiting to arrive in the Mt. Washington Valley area. So, after finishing my atlasing, I stopped there shortly before noon on my way home and, sure enough, many of the species were still there. In getting out of the car, I immediately heard the TEWA’s calling. But, the first bird I saw was a male Bay-breasted at eye level. Abandoning the opportunity to get on the TEWA’s, I followed the Bay-breasted to get some photos. Soon, one Bay-breasted turned into 3, 2 males and a female.

By the time I went back for the TEWA’s, there was only silence and no apparent movement. Heading down towards the Ellis River bridge, I could not find them . . . nor much else. On my way back, a fellow who was doing some tennis court maintenance at the local outdoor courts wanted to chat . . . which was a Godsend! Right after leaving him, in a large blossoming apple tree, the first bird I picked up was a male Cape May and then I finally got on a Tennessee. In the end, I stayed at that tree for ~20 minutes taking lots of photos. It turns out there was also a female Cape May and four other TEWA’s! What a way to wrap up my morning of birding!

So, the “buds” in the subject line refers to the spruce budworm species of which I had the three major ones: Cape May (2), Bay-breasted (3) and Tennessee (5-6) . . . and for good measure, a Canada Warbler was hanging around. A shoutout to Will for his phone call!

Full report posted to eBird with photos to be added.

Subject: [NHBirds] ID for a few I have never seen before? Roseate Terns? Red Knot?
Went for a cold walk around the seacoast this morning, let me apologize already if I have ID'ed incorrectly because I believe a few would be usual for this area.


Seabrook Harbor Beach-Roseate Terns 4 of them, there was over 10 on the beach. I thought they were all common terns but when I started to process the pics I realized these were different. Is this correct?

Seabrook beach, this was with a black-bellied plover so I thought it was a female, but know think maybe a Red Knot? Not totally sure.

Hampton on the seawall, I believe this is a Iceland Gull

Seabrook Beach, is this a Sanderling in breeding colors? Or something else

Additionally I saw, 5 Least Terns at Seabrook beach and 4 at Hampton beach State Park

Also two bonaparte's at Seabrook Beach state park.



Thanks

Birders

A quick walk at Moore Fields today (NH 155A) turned up a very late pipit, way back near the end of the gravel road, as well as the kestrel in its usual perch, a bunch of bobolinks and savanna sparrows, a blue-winged warbler and a lone Least Sandpiper (my goal was to find shorebirds).


Recently we've had 1-2 Tennessee warblers singing in our yard 4 of the last 5 mornings (dueling banjos on Monday was the best). Yellow-billed cuckoo in the yard Sunday and Black-billed on Bennett Road Monday, and my favorite moment was getting all 4 wrens in about 20 minutes--Winter on Bennett Road, Carolina on Packers Falls Road, House and Marsh at the Surrey Lane marsh.


And just to remind me to always avoid looking at my desk, there was a female Black-throated blue outside my office on the 4th floor of Horton on campus.

Subject: [NHBirds] Final "Feathered Friday" Coming Up on May 31
Hard to believe, but the month of May is ending and so is the Mascoma
Chapter's series of bird walks at Hanover's Mink Brook.

By any measure, this suite of walks has been meteorologically challenged,
and this Friday's walk May be no exception as there is a 40% chance of
rain. Just the same, unless it is pouring, we will go out.

Meet at 7:00 a.m. in the parking area adjacent to the electrical substation
on NH Route 10 about ¼ mile south of the Hanover business district. The
trails are level but mostly dirt surface. Given the amount of rain
recently, we expect them to be soggy. Appropriate footwear is recommended.

The walk is free and open to the public. All experience levels welcome. Bring
binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. If weather conditions are
inhospitable, the walk will be cancelled. Please check your e-mail early
Friday morning for an update.

To be led by members of the Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon Pelagic Trip - 5/27/19
NH Audubon sponsored an all day pelagic trip yesterday aboard the
"Granite State" out of Rye Harbor, NH.  We started with a tour of the
Isles of Shoals where we saw the wonderful tern colony on White and
Seavey Islands, the Cormorant rookery on Lunging Island and two separate
sightings of American Oystercatchers on Little Seavey Island in NH (1)
and Appledore Island in ME (2).  The two birds on Appledore Island were
seen in a brief attempted copulation.  This species has not been
confirmed as nesting on the islands, but it likely has already nested
out there on one of the islands.

After this, we cruised offshore toward Jeffrey's Ledge.  Early season
whale activity had been reported from southern areas off Cape Ann, but
there hadn't been many accompanying bird sightings.  So we decided to
explore northern areas.   We worked our way east and then north along
the middle or outer edge of Jeffrey's into Maine and continued north to
the "Three Fingers". We then worked back along the inside of the ledge
before turning west and heading home.  Bird and whale activity offshore
was, unfortunately, very slow.  But we still managed to get a few nice
early spring sightings and enjoyed a great day on the ocean.

Thanks to Jon Woolf for organizing this trip, to Captain Pete Reynolds,
and to whale biologists Melanie and Jonathan for helping to spot whales
and birds!

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Variable clouds with some offshore fog limiting visibility at times
Variable winds 5-10 mph.  Seas about 1-3'

BLUE JAY  1 - Rather rare sighting from far offshore.  Blue Jays are
migrating right now, but they are notoriously fearful of crossing water.
Barn Swallow 1
BAY-BREASTED WARBLER  1 - A nice companion during part of our trip. It
landed on various parts of the boat and ate bits of apple for departing.

Subject: [NHBirds] flock of Tennessee Warblers in Antrim!
It didn't sound like a particularly good migration morning when I left my house for Concord this morning, but I decided to stop along the road to the Antrim Wastewater Treatment facility just off Rt. 202. This has always been an excellent little migrant trap for me during the last half of May with good numbers of Tennessee and Wilson's Warblers, among the more regular breeding birds. I walked the usual 5-10 minutes down the road to the gate and didn't hear or see much in the way of migrants. The usual breeders along this stretch include gobs of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats among others, and they were vocal enough. Right before stepping back into my car to head into the office, I heard a call note that sounded like Tennessee (my ears were well tuned to this species after five days on Monhegan Island last week). Upon inspecting a small grouping of tall planted fir trees (the only ones in sight), I did, sure enough, see a Tennessee Warbler - but then noticed more movement. In the next few minutes, I accurately counted at least SIX Tennessee Warblers in this trio of conifers, none of which were singing. I'm pretty sure that, away from south Texas, I've not noticed that particular collection of this species in the same area. So, keep your eyes on the spruces and firs for some of the later 'spruce budworm' warblers, which, by all accounts, are having a banner year in our area.

Michael and I were fortunate to spend the weekend up on the Connecticut lakes, where there is still snow in spots and none of the usual roads are open. We got to hike in East Inlet, Scott's bog, Indian stream, etc. Things are in pretty bad shape so we improvised in other new and different areas (Nature Conservancy Hurlbert Swamp/Bog), and some hikes we never did before (the falls in the river). Had we known we would've taken mountain bikes up!
The birds are starting to come in, not in huge numbers but were great to see and it was so quiet. The only other folks there are fishermen. (No ATV's at all due to mud month)
Highlight was definitely finding 22 Brant on the first Connecticut lake last night while eating dinner, very distant but delightful.
With apologies I did not get another summer tanager, but mistyped the banding code. ( It was a scarlet Tanager.)
Go up, have fun before the crowds get there!

Subject: [NHBirds] Trumpeter Swan and Cedar Waxwings
About 1:00 this afternoon at Abe Emerson Marsh in Candia, the Trumpeter
Swan was nicely visible from a distance, through a good pair of
binoculars. He did perform one wide wing spread for us.

However, the most entertaining were the Cedar Waxwings, must have been 8-10
of them, among the branches of the smaller trees right in front of the
parking area, next to the shore line. Beautiful and so close! Two were
sitting on a small dead log passing one red berry back and forth between
them many times. So cute. Would love to have had a video of that.

Subject: [NHBirds] Waning "Warbler Wednesdays"
The last of the Mascoma Chapter's May birding outings at Lebanon's Boston
Lot Lake is to take place this Wednesday, the 29th beginning at 7:00 a.m.
Significant numbers of migrants such as warblers and flycatchers continue
to be reported, we're hoping they'll still be around for this week's event.

Meet in the more northerly of the two parking lots on NH Rt. 10 directly
across from Wilder Dam.

Walking conditions include a fairly steep, uphill climb and surfaces that
are unpaved and uneven. If rain has occurred recently ground conditions
could be muddy or damp. Sturdy footwear is recommended.

The event is free and open to the public. All experience levels welcome.
Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. In the event of
steady rain, the walk will be cancelled.

To be led by members of the Mascoma Chapter's Steering Committee.

Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon

Subject: [NHBirds] Mt. Wantastiquet Ceruleans- NO
Greetings,

This morning, my partner Kat and I went looking for the previously reported
Cerulean Warbler reported by Pam Hunt. Unfortunately, we were not able to
locate any, singing males or otherwise.

Living in Brattleboro since the fall, this was my first foray to this site
so I am a bit unfamiliar with where they have historically been found.
Nevertheless, we tried our best to follow Pam's directions in her report.
We did encounter several Black-throated Blue Warblers this morning, one of
which was singing a Cerulean-type alternate song. However, it was not as
convincing as some that I've heard elsewhere in the past, so it was rather
easy to dismiss.

While June is looking to be extremely busy for us, we hope to head back in
the coming weeks to hike to the summit spending a little more time again.

Cheers,
Chad Witko

Subject: [NHBirds] Head's Pond today: Olive-sided Flycatcher and BB Cuckoo(
As I was getting out of my car at the parking lot for the Head's Pond trail
in Hooksett this morning, I heard 2-3 repetitions of "quick, three beers"
nearby. On the trail, I was able to locate the sweet spot that let me see
through the trees to an Olive-sided Flycatcher perched in the sun atop an
evergreen. The "vest" was clearly visible.



Also, I heard and saw a Black-billed Cuckoo near the pond at the end of the
trail and also heard a song as I was walking back to the parking lot.
