A Yellow Warbler showed up on the suet feeder this morning. He joins the Pine Warblers and the Prairies.
The Blue Birds are carrying nesting materials into their box. Fortunately the Tree Swallows aren’t here yet.
Yesterday and again this morning, there was a Flicker drumming on a dead branch making quite a racket. I’ve not been aware of their drumming in the past.

Subject: [NHBirds] Penacook Survey: new mid-April record
Greetings all,



My tally of 56 species in 3.5 hours beat my previous mid-April high by one,
but I'll take it.



New arrivals included Lousiana Waterthrush and Swamp Sparrow, while Fish
Crow was the first for the ROUTE this year (they've been nearby). In the
last half hour there was a small push of migrating hawks, with 3 Sharpies, 1
Cooper's, and 1 Broad-winged. Add in a Sharpie seen earlier along Bog Road
and I set a new high count for that species (4! Woo hoo!!). Other highlights
included 2 drumming grouse, my first GC Kinglet on the route since January,
the Field Sparrow continuing at 30 Pines, and a flyover Common Loon.



For some species, notably RC Kinglet and Palm Warbler, numbers were DOWN
from last weekend, which is odd because both seem to have increased more
generally. Juncos and siskins were also down, but they're both clearing out
for the season.



Record for late April is 59. We'll see what happens next weekend!!

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (Bald Eagle CHICK, Gannets, Glaucous Gull, Razorbills)
The Noreaster yesterday doesn't seem to have produced a lot on the coast
from yesterday or today.  Highlights that I heard about yesterday
included about 4 Laughing Gulls, 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, and a
Bonaparte's Gull.  Today Jane and I got out and there was the first good
northbound movement of Northern Gannets and a few other birds.  Grebes
were (more or less) similar to before the storm.

Highlights today
----------------------

Red-breasted Merganser - 1 LEUCISTIC bird (caramel/white) female in
Hampton harbor.  While I was watching this bird in scope, I witnessed, a
BRUTAL and SUDDEN attack by a Great Black-backed Gull, which dispatched
a male Red-breasted Merganser and dragged it onto a mud flat to eat!!!!
Northern Gannet - 207 MIGRATING north in a couple of hours.  Pretty
steady movement.  Wish we got to the coast earlier as I'm sure we missed
a lot at dawn. My first significant numbers of 2021.
Common Eider - 118 MIGRATING north in a couple of hours.  A lot more 
(not migrating) on the coast.
RAZORBILL - 11+ still on the coast.  Mix of adults and winter/immature
birds.  At one time, 6 or 7 on the water at the same time from Ragged
Neck in Rye.
Black Guillemot - 1 immature bird moving north.
THICK-BILLED MURRE - 1 moving north.  Holly Bauer reported 2 off North
Beach in Hampton.
Alcid sp. - 9 mostly moving north.
GLAUCOUS GULL - 1 immature bird lingering in Hampton harbor.
Bald Eagle - 2 adults PLUS AT LEAST ONE CHICK IN NEST in New Castle!!!!

Subject: RE: [NHBirds] More Grebes
The Grebe fallout continues:

As Rob mentioned there are lingering Grebes in the Lakes Region. I bumped into Ken Klapper at Leavitt Beach and he had similar numbers of Horned to my count yesterday (and Rob’s earlier today) . . . and the single Red-necked.

I stopped by Big Squam Lake (looking from Rt.3/25 near Piper Cove) and had a nice group of 7 Red-necked Grebes. I scoped Little Squam and didn’t see any grebes . . . but larger than normal numbers of Ring-billed Gulls.

The Merlins at the Science Center are VERY vocal. As I was leaving yesterday I saw a lovely courtship display which ended with copulation.

Subject: [NHBirds] Watch for Louisiana Waterthrush!

New Hampshire is home to the Northern Waterthrush and the Louisiana Waterthrush. These look-alike warblers, both of which will be found skulking in brushy tangles of low wetland areas, can be very difficult to identify based on sight alone. One key to remember, is that the Louisiana arrives here before the Northern, and this is the time of year they return. By focusing on preferred habitat, breeding distribution and migration behavior, you can make a reliable ID even if the bird's not singing. Check out this article from the Spring 2014 Issue of New Hampshire Bird Records for three important "rules of thumb" to keep in mind when trying to identify these Waterthrushes: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V33%20N1%20Spring%202014%20web.pdf ("A Tale of Two Waterthrushes" begins on page 37). Other articles in this issue include: Birding Hidden Towns of Northwestern Grafton County; The Inland White-winged Scoter Flight of May 2014; field notes and photos from the 2014 spring season; and of course a Photo Quiz! Enjoy them all!

New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.

Sandhill Crane Monroe
Duane Cross <duaneups...>: Apr 13 01:30AM

I have lived within 4 miles of the Monroe Sandhill Cranes for 6 years now without having had the good fortune of seeing them though I will admit I haven't tried very hard either. Yesterday evening my wife and I were hanging out at the Mcindoe Falls Dam hoping for a good photo-op of the Ospreys at the nest there. I noticed a large bird fly up from the Vermont side of the river upstream of the dam and fly downstream towards us. I thought at first it was a heron but it didn't take long to realize that it was a Sandhill Crane. The bird flew over the bridge and dam and continued down river until it was out of sight. On the Osprey news here one bird has been here for at least a week now waiting for the return of it's mate.                                                                                                                                                             Duane Cross
Jeff MacQueen <jmacqueen...>: Apr 13 05:30AM -0400

I have a couple of observations and questions for anyone on the group about
these birds. I moved from the Upper Valley in NH to the Northeast Kingdom
of Vermont in the past year and have been birding a lot in Monroe and
Barnet where they can be seen. I usually came up from the Upper Valley
every year to see them, sometimes it would take me 3 or 4 or more tries.
There are a lot of cornfields and hayfields up here. I believe “Oscar”
(named by local schoolchildren) was first seen along Plains Rd. in the
1990’s. What is the lifespan of a Sandhill Crane? Could it still be Oscar
who is now breeding (and has been every year for the past three years or
so)? There are currently at least three birds in this area. I think
Oscar(?) and his mate prefer the NH side while last year’s “colt” prefers
the Vermont side based on sightings this year so far. If the male is not
the original bird, that was seen for I believe, 15 years or more by
himself, could the female have returned with a new mate one year? If anyone
is interested in trying to see these birds, drive along Plains Rd. in
Monroe and check every hayfield and cornfield or try the “Stakeout
Alternate Sandhill Crane” spot on Rt. 135, (details in eBird) just don’t
block the farm road that goes down to the hayfield. Jeff MacQueen, St.
Johnsbury, Vt.

Barred Owl Defends Nest Site Against Raccoon
Alfred Maley <alfredmaley...>: Apr 13 03:29AM -0400

Linda was on an early morning walk in the West Road Conservation Area on
Saturday when a Barred Owl (presumably a male) flew past her and after a
young raccoon that was beginning to ascend a tree near a nest box. The
raccoon leaped off the tree and scurried off into the woods.
 
I put flashing on the nest box trees to prevent them from becoming raccoon
condominiums, but I’ve always wondered how well the owls can avoid
predation in a natural setting. Apparently they can and they do.
 
Eggs will start hatching this week (if they haven’t already) and the
females will soon be able to leave the nest for short intervals. There has
been a lot of celebration this past week in the nest in our yard, so things
seem to be going well.
 
We also have three Wood Duck nests under way in boxes in the yard.
Incubation began in two of them the night before Easter.

Fw: Re: Fw: Scott Weidensaul at The Music Hall, Portsmouth NH - 4/20
Dan Hubbard <danielhubbard...>: Apr 12 08:40PM -0400

Scott will also be doing a Zoom program for the Seacoast Chapter on June 9. Dan Hubbard, Rochester
 
Dear Community Members,
 
On Tuesday, April 20 at 7pm, Pulitzer finalist Scott Weidensaul comes to The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH as part of the Innovation + Leadership series, with his new book A WORLD ON THE WING.
 
The ornithologist, naturalist, and author of nearly thirty books will discuss his breathtaking new book that introduces readers to scientists, researchers, and bird lovers alike. Through a global look at bird migration from the mudflats of the Yellow Sea in China to the remote mountains of northeastern India to the dusty hills of southern Cyprus, Publishers Weekly says A WORLD ON THE WING is a book “Bird enthusiasts and fans of nature writing shouldn't miss.”
 
The 7pm event includes an author presentation and interview with Portsmouth's own Jameson French, CEO of Northland Forest Products, naturalist, and birder; followed by an audience Q&A. This event will be held at The Music Hall at 28 Chestnut St., in Portsmouth, NH. The theater is following state and local guidelines, in addition to utilizing a brand new HVAC system. More information on The Music Hall's safety protocols here.

Loons on Little Sunapee
sallie barker <salliebarker...>: Apr 12 08:27PM -0400

We thought we heard a loon at bedtime last night, but could not confirm.
However, we definitely heard loons in the plural today on Little Lake
Sunapee! Hoping they return to their man-made nest in their safe haven on
Stanley Point.

feeders
JM Maher <jeannemariemaher...>: Apr 12 06:41PM -0400

Avian activity isn’t the only thing starting to pick up. This afternoon at our condo in Jackson a black bear Mom and Cub wandered by in search of goodies. If you haven’t already it is time to take in the feeders. (unfortunately I was downloading my photos from earlier today and my card was in my computer when I grabbed my camera for some shots)

Burley Farm and Deer Hill WMA
Patricia Maxwell Wood <patriciamaxwellwood...>: Apr 12 06:28PM -0400

Burley Farms was sporting a fair amount of Avian activity late this morning. But most notable was a Pied-bill Grebe in the main Beaver Pond.
Deer Hill was a bit quieter after noon but I didn’t leave without nice views of a Hermit Thrush, a couple of Eastern Phoebes and one very curious American Beaver who swam right up to the edge of third pond.

Ps. Rumor has it that two Common Loons followed the fish hatchery truck into Sand Pond in Marlow/Lempster this past week … the day after ice out to be precise!

Barn Swallow, Goshawk, Ospreys
Iain Macleod <pandiain.im...>: Apr 12 05:55PM -0400

FOY Barn Swallow with a group of Tree Swallows over the big lake in Gilford.
Ospreys back at several more Lakes Region nests today and 2nd confirmed
hatch at a Lakes Region eagle nest.
While scanning the fields at Moulton Farm in Meredith a Northern Goshawk
briefly circled with 2 Red-tailed Hawks then continued north (acted like a
migrant).
Loons were everywhere and lots of singing Pine Warblers.

Subject: [NHBirds] NO fallout in Concord :-(
Between Becky Suomala, Unity, and myself, we checked all the main ponds in Concord this morning with no signs of grebes or other fallout waterbirds (I also made a run up to Webster Lake in Franklin that was equally unsuccessful). Highlights were large numbers of Tree Swallows foraging low over some ponds, and a flock of ~20 Palm Warblers at Turtle Pond.



Things are still hopping in the Connecticut Valley, with *61* RN and *112* Horned Grebes on Lake Morey in Thetford, VT. I was half-tempted to drive up to check Mascoma Lake when I was in Franklin, but I *do* have work to do today…

Just got a report on the Upper Valley listserve that there’s something of a waterfowl fallout brewing on the Connecticut, with LT Ducks, and Horned and RN Grebes. Although the Connecticut Valley always seems to fare better than elsewhere in NH during these event, it’s certainly worth checking your local water bodies for grounded ducks, grebes, and other waterbirds.

Seen this morning on one of the tube feeders. Yes, I know they should come down. Trying to finish of this season's seed. I know this venture is on borrowed time. This weekend is the end.

Subject: [NHBirds] Breeding Merlins in Holderness again
I am watching and hearing a very vocal pair of courting Merlins from my office window at the Science Center. They have been around since Saturday. Lots of calling and food deliveries. Yesterday I watched the female cache a freshly delivered Chickadee (I guess she wasn't hungry)

All the Merlin nests I have found in the Lakes Region have been in abandoned crow nests in pines or spruces. I have found a suitable candidate nest near where they are calling.

The Merlin population is pretty well established in the Lakes Region these days (and throughout the state). There are regular nesting territories that I have found in Ashland, Plymouth, Tilton, Meredith and multiple here in Holderness. Based on how many I have "tripped over" there must be several dozen pairs in the Lakes Region.

Subject: [NHBirds] budding Pine Grosbeaks
Not a current sighting (I think all the Pine Grosbeaks have gone north) but Rich's observation of the budding crossbills is similar to a winter observation here in Webster. 
I watched a  group of about 20 Pine Grosbeaks eating the buds of a Sugar Maple tree over a period of at least ten minutes. At the time (late December) there was still a good crop of fruit and seeds of various kinds, therefore, I thought this was a bit unusual even though the species is known to have a varied diet. It is also interesting to note that only one or two of my flock were brightly colored males versus Rich's amazing flock of almost all bright males.
For areas of the state that receive snow during this next weather event it could create concentrations of early migrants along plowed roads.

Subject: [NHBirds] White-winged Crossbills eating oak buds
I watched a flock of 28 White-winged Crossbills nipping off the buds of oak trees this morning. I was on a bluff above the Contoocook River almost at crown height of the trees which grow from the base of the bluff. Therefore the birds were just above eye level so I could clearly see them nipping off the bud. Several birds also sampled the flowers of a maple but did not seem to like them and they would move back to the oaks. The flock consisted of 26 males in shockingly bright plumage and 2 female/immature birds. Cornell’s website describes crossbills eating deciduous tree buds as an unusual feeding behavior sheen most commonly in irruptive years as cone crops are diminished.

Hi all,

Just sitting and working on the back deck this afternoon yielded 22 species
in my backyard. Eastern Bluebirds using the nest hole of a dead tree fended
off one of the Pileated Woodpeckers that came by. Maybe the two Pileateds
were looking for a nest hole of their own? I'm glad the Bluebirds won,
because they found the hole over a month ago!

Subject: [NHBirds] Dozens of Bluebirds....Not!
I looked outside on Sunday and kept noticing bluebird after bluebird
in my new suspended Squirrel proof feeder. I was surprised to see so many
very active at the feeder. After intermittently watching their activity I
finally got out the binocs for a closer look. What a surprise it was to
see that the flock of Bluebirds were really the usual variety of feeder
birds, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Downy & Hairy woodpeckers etc.
I had put up my new birdfeeder earlier in the week, a top of the line
expensive splurge of a squirrel proof feeder. The only thing is, it has a
clear blue plastic hood that is tall like a witches hat ( kind of homely)
but it has proven to truly be "Squirrel proof".
BUT, now all the birds no matter which species all look blue!!
So much for fancy, expensive feeders! Anyone want to make an offer!?!
Jennifer,

Subject: [NHBirds] REMINDER*** NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter Wednesday April 14, 2021 7:30 PM Zoom Program - Ravens, Wolves and People ***
New HampshireAudubon Seacoast Chapter  Wednesday April14, 2021 7:30 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada) Zoom Program: Ravens, Wolves andPeople    Common ravens are known to scavenge fromwolves and people, but the degree to which they exploit  these and other sources of food has not beenstudied in detail. In 2019, Matthias Loretto and presenter John Marzluff begantagging ravens in Yellowstone National Park with long-lasting GSM transmitters.After tagging >60 ravens and relating their movements to those of people andwolves, they are gaining an appreciation of the raven's reliance on bothproviders. John will describe the movements of territorial and non-breedingravens and relate these to wolf- and human-provisioned foods. He will focus onthe exploits of individual birds to emphasize variability. They observed ravensusing wolf kills, but the ravens' discovery appears more incidental than aresult of following or purposeful search. As they begin to quantify therelationship between wolves and ravens, they may learn more about raven andwolf synchrony, but at present, it appears to be weak, with discovery of killsoccurring during the day rather than after communal roosting. Ravens madeextensive use of anthropogenic resources, including direct handouts, wastewatertreatment ponds, dumps, agriculture, roadkills, and hunter offal. Territorialravens have extensive knowledge of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem andexploit areas in excess of 6500 square miles to obtain their yearly needs.    Bio: John Marzluff is James W. RidgewayProfessor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington. His graduate(Northern Arizona University) and initial post-doctoral (University of Vermont)research focused on the social behavior and ecology of jays and ravens. Hecontinues this theme investigating the intriguing behavior of crows, ravens, andjays. His current research focuses on the interactions of ravens and wolves inYellowstone. He teaches Ornithology, Governance and Conservation of RareSpecies, Field Research in Yellowstone, and Natural and Cultural History ofCosta Rica.Professor Marzluffhas written five books and edited several others. His Welcome to Subirdia (2014Yale) discovers that moderately settled lands host a splendid array ofbiological diversity and suggests ways in which people can steward these richesto benefit birds and themselves. His most recent book, In Search of Meadowlarks(2020 Yale) connects our agriculture and diets to the conservation of birds andother wildlife.   Dr. Marzluff has mentored over 40 graduatestudents and authored over 140 scientific papers on various aspects of birdbehavior and wildlife management. He is a member of the US Fish and WildlifeService's Recovery Team for the critically endangered Mariana Crow, a formermember of the Washington Biodiversity Council, a Fellow of the American Ornithologist'sUnion, and a National Geographic Explorer.     All are welcome to attend our WednesdayApril 14, 2021 program via Zoom.

Subject: [NHBirds] Hermit Thrush Evening Song-Wilton
Tonight, I got to listen to the lovely song of the Hermit Thrush in my
woods. What a great way to discover their arrival.

Lots of different turkey groups have been foraging in the yard. An
assortment of males and females. One group was 9 males and 2 females.
Recently 3 hens have been coming into the yard to eat bugs and seeds-they
arrive individually, but usually about 5 minutes apart. They often come
from 6-7 pm. Maybe they have nests nearby-I read that they usually lay
their eggs from mid-April-early May in NH with an average of 12 eggs!

Subject: [NHBirds] Sandhill Crane Monroe
I have a couple of observations and questions for anyone on the group about
these birds. I moved from the Upper Valley in NH to the Northeast Kingdom
of Vermont in the past year and have been birding a lot in Monroe and
Barnet where they can be seen. I usually came up from the Upper Valley
every year to see them, sometimes it would take me 3 or 4 or more tries.
There are a lot of cornfields and hayfields up here. I believe “Oscar”
(named by local schoolchildren) was first seen along Plains Rd. in the
1990’s. What is the lifespan of a Sandhill Crane? Could it still be Oscar
who is now breeding (and has been every year for the past three years or
so)? There are currently at least three birds in this area. I think
Oscar(?) and his mate prefer the NH side while last year’s “colt” prefers
the Vermont side based on sightings this year so far. If the male is not
the original bird, that was seen for I believe, 15 years or more by
himself, could the female have returned with a new mate one year? If anyone
is interested in trying to see these birds, drive along Plains Rd. in
Monroe and check every hayfield and cornfield or try the “Stakeout
Alternate Sandhill Crane” spot on Rt. 135, (details in eBird) just don’t
block the farm road that goes down to the hayfield. Jeff MacQueen, St.
Johnsbury, Vt.

Subject: [NHBirds] Barred Owl Defends Nest Site Against Raccoon
Linda was on an early morning walk in the West Road Conservation Area on
Saturday when a Barred Owl (presumably a male) flew past her and after a
young raccoon that was beginning to ascend a tree near a nest box. The
raccoon leaped off the tree and scurried off into the woods.

I put flashing on the nest box trees to prevent them from becoming raccoon
condominiums, but I’ve always wondered how well the owls can avoid
predation in a natural setting. Apparently they can and they do.

Eggs will start hatching this week (if they haven’t already) and the
females will soon be able to leave the nest for short intervals. There has
been a lot of celebration this past week in the nest in our yard, so things
seem to be going well.

We also have three Wood Duck nests under way in boxes in the yard.
Incubation began in two of them the night before Easter.

I have lived within 4 miles of the Monroe Sandhill Cranes for 6 years now without having had the good fortune of seeing them though I will admit I haven't tried very hard either. Yesterday evening my wife and I were hanging out at the Mcindoe Falls Dam hoping for a good photo-op of the Ospreys at the nest there. I noticed a large bird fly up from the Vermont side of the river upstream of the dam and fly downstream towards us. I thought at first it was a heron but it didn't take long to realize that it was a Sandhill Crane.

Subject: [NHBirds] Fw: Re: Fw: Scott Weidensaul at The Music Hall, Portsmouth NH - 4/20
Scott will also be doing a Zoom program for the Seacoast Chapter on
June 9. Dan Hubbard, Rochester

Dear Community Members,

On Tuesday, April 20 at 7pm, Pulitzer finalist Scott
Weidensaul comes to The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH as
part of the Innovation + Leadership series, with his new
book A WORLD ON THE WING.


The ornithologist, naturalist, and author of nearly thirty
books will discuss his breathtaking new book that
introduces readers to scientists, researchers, and bird
lovers alike. Through a global look at bird migration from
the mudflats of the Yellow Sea in China to the remote
mountains of northeastern India to the dusty hills of
southern Cyprus, Publishers Weekly says A WORLD ON THE
WING is a book “Bird enthusiasts and fans of nature
writing shouldn’t miss.”


The 7pm event includes an author presentation and
interview with Portsmouth’s own Jameson French, CEO of
Northland Forest Products, naturalist, and birder;
followed by an audience Q&A. This event will be held at
The Music Hall at 28 Chestnut St., in Portsmouth, NH. The
theater is following state and local guidelines, in
addition to utilizing a brand new HVAC system. More
information on The Music Hall’s safety protocols here.


Please feel free to share the event page with others who
may be interested. We hope that you’ll join us for this
educational conversation with Scott Weidensaul and Jameson
French!

All the best,

Brittany Wason, Literary Producer & Content Manager,

Burley Farms was sporting a fair amount of Avian activity late this morning. But most notable was a Pied-bill Grebe in the main Beaver Pond.
Deer Hill was a bit quieter after noon but I didn’t leave without nice views of a Hermit Thrush, a couple of Eastern Phoebes and one very curious American Beaver who swam right up to the edge of third pond.

Subject: [NHBirds] Nesting
Looking out my kitchen window this morning, I saw a Robin and an Eastern Phoebe adding nesting materials to last years nests. The nest the Robin is adding material to has been used for 4 summers, this summer will be the 5th year. I check it for mites every year between nestings. ( no mites have been found) It is usually used twice every summer. The nest is on a nesting shelf I put up under an overhang on my potting shed. The Phoebe nest was made last year in our pavilion.
There are two other Robins nests that I need to check for new materials, one is in an open nest shelf on a shed and another is tucked up in a leanto. Both had two nestings last year.
Also, a Chipping Sparrow was in our feeders this morning, three Tom Turkey, 10 jakes, and 14 hens are in the yard daily. Lots of gobbling, strutting, and ignoring going on.

Squamscott River, Exeter. End of Swasey Pkwy where it joins Newfields Rd.

Greater Yellowlegs 1 FOY
Lesser Yellowlegs 1 FOY

Birds were feeding side by side only a few feet from each other. As I observed them, I kept wishing Ornithology students could have been there since differentiating size in some species can be challenging for beginners. I believe this is the first Lesser Yellowlegs I’ve seen on the Squamscott in Exeter.

Been hearing constant drumming for a couple weeks, recently saw one at the top of a nearby maple tree in early morning sunlight, and this afternoon two walked side-by-side feeding as we watched from close range.

Subject: [NHBirds] Lee/Durham highlights
Birders
There were a few nice finds around this weekend in my 5MR circle.

Friday evening I went to the Bennett Road F&G property in Durham for the woodcock show and had 6 buzzing and whirring.

Saturday poking around Durham I had the continuing Red-throated Loon from Adams point and my FOY Savannah sparrows at Moore Fields.

Today in Lee my favorite find was a quartet of shovelers at Gile Road in Lee. Other highlights were singing Louisiana Waterthrush at Little River park, singing thrasher at Old Mill Rd, along with Virginia Rail, Palm Warbler, and a bunch of sparrows (Field and Savannah were cool to hear and see). But the best combination of ambience and birds was at the Irving at the traffic circle, where the day's only Killdeer watched me buy gas and a doughnut.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wood Ducks
Had a pair of Wood Ducks in our backyard this morning flying from tree
to tree looking for a nest. The female found one, a gray squirrel's
nest. The squirrel climbed up the tree and looked into the hole of the
nest at the female inside. Neither duck gave ground and the squirrel
left. What eventually scared off the ducks was me walking into our
sun-room. The tree was too close to our house.

The male turkey's arrived today. The females have been here for several
weeks.

And yesterday, our bats have returned.

Here is a picture of the Wood Ducks with the female inside of the hole

Subject: [NHBirds] Penacook Survey - 51 species
Unity joined me for my weekly 10k around Penacook, which was quite birdy for
most of the almost 5 hours we were out.

51 species is above average for the middle third of April, but not
record-breaking. The record is 55, and maybe if I'm lucky I'll beat it NEXT
weekend!

As befits this warm spell we've been having, the STARTING temp of 9 degrees
(Celsius) was actually the highest by far since Sept 29, 2020, and the first
time above freezing since Nov 14. Methinks we've finally escaped winter's
grip.



Bird highlights today included the following:



First local Palm Warblers, RC Kinglets, and singing Hermit Thrush.

LOTS of YB Sapsuckers N Flickers, Chipping Sparrows, BH Cowbirds, and Pine
Warblers.

Record highs of 5 Belted Kingfishers and 11 N Mockingbirds.

Fun surprises were Barred Owl, American Kestrel, and Field Sparrow.



On the down side, this was the first survey since October 25 without one or
both species of crossbill, and the first since Jan 3 without Common Redpoll.
Although I won't be surprised if I still find a random crossbill, y guess is
that redpolls had headed north at last. Still a handful of siskins around
though. And despite warm temps and sunny skies, we failed to find any
raptors except Turkey Vultures.



Good birding!

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] More Chickadee MIGRATION!
Steve, about a week ago I had a swarm of about forty chickadees at ‘osprey cove to bracketta point’ they were clearly migrating WEST along the south shore of the bay. Makes more sense after what you wrote that they were too timid to cross the bay north but instead circumnavigate around the edge. On Friday I saw smaller numbers of 4 or 5 at a time doing the same thing at the rail bridge to the west of the discovery center. Clearly trying to avoid water crossings by skirting the bay.

Jane and I worked up the NH coast this morning with not a lot worth mentioning.  At about 9:30, we checked out the "Chickadee Migration Spot" in Portsmouth (where we had 38 migrating 2 weeks ago) near the Pease Golf Course and immediately saw a group of migrant chickadees gathered in the "Magic Cedar" at the edge of the course.  We then watched the chickadees fly over our heads and cross Grafton Road to the ENE.  This continued for flock after flock for over 2 hours and we counted 120 Black-capped Chickadees migrating.  Flocks would gather along the edge of the course and make the crossing.  Flocks were as follows:  11, 5, 4, 3, 6, 6, 8, 9, 4, 3, 4, 5, 1, 13, 5, 9, 2, 9, 13.  They worked the whole edge (sometimes back and forth trying to find the best spot to cross.  But often they would gather in the "Magic Cedar" which is the northernmost point of vegetation for them before a long crossing over grassland.

Over the years, Jane and I haven't witnessed much Chickadee migration so this has been interesting for us.  Chickadee migration is particularly interesting and fun to watch.  They are "tree to tree migrants" and are VERY fearful of crossing long distances.  This is unlike other diurnal passerine migrants such as Goldfinches, Blue Jays, and Swallows.  So this spot appears to be at least a "decent" location to witness the birds moving.  They may be concentrated by Interstate 95 to the east and Great Bay and the Pease Tradeport to the west and northwest.  I think the chickadees are very fearful of crossing I95.  When we watch them gather along the trees, they frequently make "false starts"  flying out of the tree toward Grafton Road, but then quickly double-back and dive into the Cedar.  Presumably, these birds are heading northeast toward northern Maine or maritime Canada.  Also of note was the sighting of 6 TUFTED TITMICE migrating with the Chickadees.  I don't think much is known regarding the migration of Titmice.

Apparently these migrations of Chickadees are somewhat regular, but variable.  According to Scott Weidensaul in an email message to the Pennsylvania listserv two days ago:


Adult chickadees may not migrate, but young black-capped chickadees often move south in significant numbers after productive breeding seasons, like the one across much of New England and southern Canada last summer. Banding records suggest these irruptions occur about every other year. And unlike most passerines, chickadees migrate by day, not after dark. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a widespread return movement of chickadees heading back north at this time of spring.

According to Keith & Fox in "Birds of New Hampshire":



Spring. Birds that moved south in winter regularly begin returning northward in late February and in March, migration usually continuing into April. Changing numbers of birds at fixed locations such as feeders and birds seen migrating indicate movement:  “8 new banded” at Hanover 12 Feb 1958 (H.C. McDade), 13 at Charlestown 1 Mar 1969 but “fewer after that” (W.W. Kidder), flock of 30 left feeders at Hanover 8 Mar 1962 (B.E. Weymouth), “3 days ago 20, now 40” at East Kingston 3 Mar 1977 (D.W. Finch). Examples in April include “25+ banded, a decided migration” at Center Harbor 30 Mar 1971 (J.P. Merrill); “first migrants” at New Hampton 8 Apr 1969 (V.H. Hebert); 6 migrating at New Hampton 12 Apr 1962 (R.W. Smart, V.H. Hebert); “residents returned” at New Hampton 27 Apr 1962 (R.W. Smart, V.H. Hebert); “determined 75+ were migrating that morning” at Rye 1 May 1972 (E.W. Phinney, banding station report).


I was trying to figure out if there is a better spot for witnessing the migration, but I'm not sure if I can find one.  This spot seems to work.  Still not certain what the best weather is for migration.  Today was sunny and warm with light SW winds.

Subject: [NHBirds] More bluebird cam, now with added chickadees
Mrs. Bluebird is making excellent progress on her nest in our box. Looks
like she's down to minor additions and adjustments. Today's video shows her
coming and going a few times, working on the nest each time.

And, now we've got hopes for chickadee cam. I made a couple bird boxes for
the Piermont Library and installed them last week. A chickadee checked one
out within an hour. Yesterday and this morning, the pair of chickadees were
checking out both boxes. (You'll have to watch closely, the second one just
peeks in the entrance.)



I'm going to try to update my blog every day to let everyone keep up with
the birds. You can find all the posts at: https://www.ianclark.com/blog/ .

On this, just my second day back in NH, after enduring a long bitter winter in Fort Myers (it got down into the forties three times; it RAINED one day!) I have been  enjoying Florida weather here in the Lakes Region.  Today at Eager Island in Laconia there was a leucistic Common Merganser - see photograph in eBird list.  I'm afraid this early spring has reduced waterfowl numbers so that I missed the bulk of the migration.  But the next wave is coming - there was a Tree Swallow at Lilly Pond today and a Hermit Thrush at Proctor Preserve in Center Harbor yesterday.  The Ospreys at Opechee Park appear to be incubating.

Happy to report that today there is a pair of herons back on the one and

Last spring, we did not notice any action on this nest until April 29, so
this is much earlier.

Subject: Fwd: [NHBirds] Evening Grosbeaks and Redpolls in Jefferson
Hi David,

Similar here. Yesterday ~150 redpolls, today only 5. The past week averaging between ~150 and large numbers frequented the feeders more often throughout the day. Was great to have them as daily visitors in this Covid winter. Feeder trays remain available,
no bears around yet (they usually arrive when the campers arrive), and take all feeders inside every evening.

As an aside, yesterday noticed a solo very healthy pine siskin in the flock.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wild Turkeys SWIMMING in Great Bay!
Although not nearly as odd as a Razorbill hiking up Mount Chocorua(!!!),
I was still stunned to see 3 Wild Turkeys "swimming" in Great Bay.  They
were fairly far out toward the middle of the bay and I saw them while
scanning through the distant waterfowl with my spotting scope.  At one
time they floated past a Common Loon.  Not a sight that you see every
day!!  I have no idea how they got there, but it didn't appear that they
could do much other than float with the tide.  After about 10 minutes, I
lost sight of them as the tide carried them eastward.  This is most
definitely a first for me!

Otherwise, birds were rather ordinary on the bay.  Appears to have been
a departure of a few species.  Totals from a comprehensive scan at 3
locations along the southern and eastern shoreline:

Canada Goose    6
Wood Duck    2
American Black Duck    302
Green-winged Teal    15
Greater Scaup    270
Lesser Scaup    3
Bufflehead    75  The only noteworthy numerous duck.  Seemed to be
everywhere.
Common Goldeneye    7.  Just females and one immature male.
Interestingly, the young male had a crescent shaped white mark on the cheek!
Red-breasted Merganser    20
Wild Turkey    10 including the 3 on the bay.
Common Loon    5 to 7 birds.  One coming into breeding plumage.  The
rest were young birds.
Double-crested Cormorant    8
Great Blue Heron    9
Osprey    4
Northern Harrier    1 adult male
Bald Eagle    1 immature.

Out before light to the SELT Mast Road property. Itching for a grouse, to no avail. But 3 singing Pine warblers, a singing Brown creeper while in the field of view, two pairs of wood ducks and two singing Hermit Thrushes are the highlights, those and with fecundity apparent in vernal pools. And had good luck with Greg Tillman’s Louisiana waterthrush at 0830.

Subject: [NHBirds] Spring arrivals - Clough
Unity and I spent a few hours walking the flood control lands in Weare this
morning, eventually making it to Clough SP.



It was a very birdy time, with lots of the migrants already here in force
like blackbirds (including 3 Rusties), juncos, and Song Sparrows, plus god
numbers of YB Sapsuckers, Pine Warblers, and a few lingering waterfowl.
Noteworthy single new arrivals included singles of Swamp Sparrow, both GC
and RC Kinglets, and Purple Finch. A couple of drumming grouse and a RS Hawk
were also nice finds.



Heads up that the south winds overnight are likely to result in some good
migration the next couple or mornings, before rain Sunday into Monday shuts
things down for a little while longer.

Our bluebirds have returned to claim their nest box! (Well, two bluebirds
that look like our bluebirds from the last two years, we're hoping their the
same couple.) Mr. Barry Bluebird has been checking on the box regularly for
a week or so. A few days ago, he dragged a couple stalks of grass in. After
that, Jeans took over and things are moving along. She got serious about
building on April 7. You can watch the first videos here:

https://www.ianclark.com/blog/2021/4/bluebirds-continue-to-build-their-nest



We're watching a pair of eastern bluebirds in a nesting box in West Newbury,
VT. The Wi-Fi camera is permanently installed in the box so we can watch
without disturbing the birds.

Spring is arriving in West Newbury. Yesterday we had our FOY eastern
phoebes and two butterflies (moths?).

Anyone have a fox, coyote or bobcat den? I'm always looking for mammals to
photograph.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon Pelagic Birding Trip!
Hi all,

The virus stopped us last year, but it won't stop us this year!
Massabesic Audubon Center is again running a pelagic-birding trip this
spring in association with Granite State Whale Watch.

WHAT: An all-day trip into the Gulf of Maine, looking for pelagic
birds (although we'll also check out any whales and other marine life
that we encounter). As always, we've chartered the whale-watching
boat Granite State for this day of birding along Jeffreys Ledge and
wherever else the birds may lead us. Steve Mirick will be on the
microphone, and our hosts will be the highly skilled and experienced
Captain Pete Reynolds and his crew. We'll leave dockside at 8am and
stay at sea the whole day. We should return to Rye Harbor around
5pm.

WHEN: Monday, May 31 (Memorial Day).

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

WHAT TO BRING: Binoculars, of course. Plan on bringing a lunch;
Granite State's on-board snack bar will be serving only prepackaged
food. A digital camera if you have one -- these trips often produce
excellent photo opportunities for both birds and whales. Weather on
the open water is unpredictable, so dress warm, in multiple layers in
case you get too warm and need to take off a layer. Certainly bring
sunscreen, and either sunglasses or a hat. Bring motion-sickness
pills if you're vulnerable to seasickness. Granite State's seating is
mostly wooden benches, so a seat cushion is a good idea if you have
trouble with sitting on hard surfaces.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Hopefully, good weather and lots of interesting
birds! Every trip is different, of course, but past spring trips have
produced Northern Gannets, Wilson's Storm-petrels, Great and Sooty
shearwaters, Northern Fulmars, Red-necked Phalaropes in breeding
plumage (a rare and impressive sight indeed), a number of migrants,
and a number of near-shore species. We often get good looks at Common
and Roseate Terns from the White/Seavey Island tern colony, and Black
Guillemots also appear around the Isles of Shoals most years. We've
also gotten good looks at several whales of various species. In 2017
we got a once-in-a-lifetime gem: a wandering BOWHEAD whale!

REGISTRATION: You must register in advance for this trip. We need a
minimum of 30 people to pay for the trip. We've set a maximum of 40
in keeping with restrictions due to COVID-19. If those restrictions
are loosened prior to trip day we will add spaces, up to a maximum of
50. Cost is $70 for NH Audubon members, $90 for non-members.

To sign up, please use the NH Audubon website:
https://www.nhaudubon.org/event/pelagic-birding-trip/

Contact either NHA or me with any questions you might have. Please be
certain that you leave a phone number or email address where you can
be contacted on Sunday May 30, in case we have to cancel due to
weather. There is no rain date; we go on the 31st, or not at all.

To go with the trip, I will be running a 1-hour workshop on Sunday May
30, as a basic introduction to the most common pelagic birds and how
to identify them. Since we generally see both whales and birds on
these trips, the workshop also includes information on the common
whales of the Gulf of Maine. At this time it looks like this will be
a virtual workshop, not in-person.

My thanks go out to all who have made these trips a success in past
years, and I hope to see you again this year ... along with as many
new faces as we can fit! :-)

I had just finished a chore in my backyard this evening at about 7:40 and was headed for the house when I heard a distinctive “peent”. Although I’ve heard recordings of this bird, it was the first time I’d heard it in person. Over the next 20 minutes the bird flew from one location to another, each about 20 feet apart. Each time it landed it would “peent” for a few minutes and then fly off. As far as I could tell there was only one bird and I saw no aerial display. I’ll pay attention again tomorrow night. A new yard bird for me.

Subject: [NHBirds] Swanzey and Richmond birds.
I finally saw some birds worth reporting this week.

Yesterday by the back of the Swanzey airport on 32 (back by neighbors) I
saw a kestrel. I also saw two ringneck ducks on the small pond their.

Sadly most of the unusual waterfowl on the airport road are gone except for
mallards, black ducks, and hooded mergansers in the brushy area. (Last week
when driving their a hawk flew across the road low to the ground but I
could not find it to get a good view to ID ir).

Today I seen a FOY yellow bellied sapsucker in Richmond. This week phoebe
returned to Richmond despite them being in Swanzey for a couple weeks.

A couple odd but not rare sightings from last week were a mockingbird in
Richmond, picking around under my feeders. (They are common in suburbanized
parts of surrounding towns but I rarely see them in Richmond. Also a Red
Winged Blackbird whose wing patch was grey was photographed by my father in
Richmond.

Subject: [NHBirds] *** NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter Wednesday April 14, 2021 7:30 PM Zoom Program - Ravens, Wolves and People ***
New HampshireAudubon Seacoast Chapter  Wednesday April14, 2021 7:30 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada) Zoom Program: Ravens, Wolves andPeople    Common ravens are known to scavenge fromwolves and people, but the degree to which they exploit  these and other sources of food has not beenstudied in detail. In 2019, Matthias Loretto and presenter John Marzluff begantagging ravens in Yellowstone National Park with long-lasting GSM transmitters.After tagging >60 ravens and relating their movements to those of people andwolves, they are gaining an appreciation of the raven's reliance on bothproviders. John will describe the movements of territorial and non-breedingravens and relate these to wolf- and human-provisioned foods. He will focus onthe exploits of individual birds to emphasize variability. They observed ravensusing wolf kills, but the ravens' discovery appears more incidental than aresult of following or purposeful search. As they begin to quantify therelationship between wolves and ravens, they may learn more about raven andwolf synchrony, but at present, it appears to be weak, with discovery of killsoccurring during the day rather than after communal roosting. Ravens madeextensive use of anthropogenic resources, including direct handouts, wastewatertreatment ponds, dumps, agriculture, roadkills, and hunter offal. Territorialravens have extensive knowledge of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem andexploit areas in excess of 6500 square miles to obtain their yearly needs.    Bio: John Marzluff is James W. RidgewayProfessor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington. His graduate(Northern Arizona University) and initial post-doctoral (University of Vermont)research focused on the social behavior and ecology of jays and ravens. Hecontinues this theme investigating the intriguing behavior of crows, ravens, andjays. His current research focuses on the interactions of ravens and wolves inYellowstone. He teaches Ornithology, Governance and Conservation of RareSpecies, Field Research in Yellowstone, and Natural and Cultural History ofCosta Rica.Professor Marzluffhas written five books and edited several others. His Welcome to Subirdia (2014Yale) discovers that moderately settled lands host a splendid array ofbiological diversity and suggests ways in which people can steward these richesto benefit birds and themselves. His most recent book, In Search of Meadowlarks(2020 Yale) connects our agriculture and diets to the conservation of birds andother wildlife.   Dr. Marzluff has mentored over 40 graduatestudents and authored over 140 scientific papers on various aspects of birdbehavior and wildlife management. He is a member of the US Fish and WildlifeService's Recovery Team for the critically endangered Mariana Crow, a formermember of the Washington Biodiversity Council, a Fellow of the American Ornithologist'sUnion, and a National Geographic Explorer.     All are welcome to attend our WednesdayApril 14, 2021 program via Zoom.

Subject: [NHBirds] Greater Scaup etc., Lily Pond, Gilford
A group of us birded from Tilton to Gilford yesterday with these highlights:
Ring-necked Duck- about 60 on Lily Pond in Gilford. 
Greater Scaup- one male and two females seen with the Ring-necks on Lily Pond which allowed a great size and head-shape comparison. Furthermore, the two female scaup exhibited the rarely seen pale crescent on their cheeks, which is a breeding season characteristic. 
Bufflehead- at least seven lingering birds.
Common Goldeneye- small numbers but the courtship antics of one male was highly entertaining. 
[Common Loon- Zero! Not many have arrived yet.]
Osprey- a male moving sticks around in the nest at Opechee Park in Laconia. 
Bald Eagle- two or three each at Silver Lake and Bartlett Beach (Winnisquam Lake, Laconia). 
Cooper's Hawk- an adult male carrying a small prey item (unidentified) which put on a sky-dancing flight right over our heads.  
"Eastern Bluebird" by a Northern Mockingbird- it had all of us fooled! :) 
crossbill species- heard by Anne and Miki at Opechee Park.
Bob with lots of help from Tom, Anne, Trudy, Miki, Jack, and Dot.

Hey All,

I know leucistic feathering in birds is interesting to many bird enthusiasts (me too!). There’s an interesting leucitic Red-winged blackbird at Quincy Bog, Rumney NH. Very vocal. I am 110% certain I saw this bird on March 22 but I could not confirm the ID at the time as it was very distant. Assuming that it has been at this location for a while, I hope that it stays for a while. Very interesting to watch in flight! Would appreciate comments by the experts as to its leucistic morphology.

Subject: [NHBirds] Meadowlark volunteers needed
Greetings NH birders,


Want to be outstanding in your field? If so, than NH Audubon has a job for you!


Because of long-term declines, NH Fish and Game listed Eastern Meadowlark as state threatened in 2017. Meadowlarks were once common in open agricultural landscapes across much of the state, and even occurred regularly into northern Coos County as recently as 25 years ago. Now they are increasingly restricted to scattered sites in the Connecticut and Merrimack Valleys, and near the seacoast, with only a handful of recent records north of the White Mountains. Even in the south, numbers continue to decline, and some formerly-reliable sites - like the Concord airport - no longer appear to support meadowlarks.

Thus, in order to get a better idea of where meadowlarks continue to occur in the state, NH Audubon is undertaking a "meadowlark blitz" this summer - with the option of continuing into 2022 if needed. We are doing this as part of a two-state effort with partners at the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the University of Vermont. Even though meadowlarks are more common in Vermont (especially in the Champlain Valley), similar declines are being seen there as well.

To amass this needed current data, we are hoping to recruit some enthusiastic volunteers willing to spend some time between May and July looking for meadowlarks. This can involve visiting pre-determined sites (I have a list!), and/or simply searching areas of suitable habitat. A key requirement is that you visit each site three times (roughly monthly) and spent the same amount of time at each visit. Depending on the size of the site and its distance from your home, each survey should be easily accomplished in a few hours, if not significantly less. More detailed instructions will be provided to volunteers who sign up.

We'll also be looking for Vesper Sparrows, which have declined similarly (if not more so) although they are not currently considered threatened or endangered. Sometimes Vesper Sparrows occur in the same areas as meadowlarks, but are more likely in habitats with sparser grasses and scattered shrubs. Because of this, there are additional Vesper Sparrow sites in areas with less historical meadowlark activity (e.g., the Ossipee Pine Barrens).

Surveys will begin in May and continue through July. If interested please reply to me at <phunt...>, and be sure to let me know where you live. I hope to start assigning people to sites by the end of the month.

Hope some of you can join me in this effort!

Pam

Subject: [NHBirds] pipits, etc., in Kingston
Alice and I walked an old farm field in Kingston Saturday morning and saw what we thought were a flock of woodcocks, maybe 10 of them, but now believe they may have been Wilson’s snipes, since they were seen not far from here recently. We think woodcocks don’t “flock” in that way. We watched three flickers arguing, many, many killdeer, and watched a harrier gliding over the wet fields. A red-headed duck (m&f) flew up from a pond, but we’re really uncertain about what it was. Red-headed is only a description, not naming the species. On Sunday I went back to try to re-find the snipes to get a photograph, but instead found a flock of about 5 or 6 American pipits! (my favorite old bird book calls them Water pipits) We’ve only seen pipits there once before, and that was in October of 2015.

Subject: [NHBirds] Lakes Region Ospreys and Eagles, etc
Ospreys we're back at three Lakes Region nests today including a female
that we banded in 2012, back at her nest for at least her tenth year. I
didn't see any at five other nests I checked.
At Lily Pond in Gilford a male Osprey was fishing in the strong wind. He
plunged and caught a small yellow perch.

Also at Lily Pond a single female Greater Scaup was in with the 60+
Ring-necked Ducks.

I checked six eagle nests. One had already hatched and I saw the female
feeding a single 2-3 day-old chick. At two nests the tell-tale white head
low in the nest indicated incubation. At two other nests, the pairs are
still working on getting a substantial-enough nest established... hopefully
next week they will be incubating.

Other birds:
Fish Crows were calling near the Tilton Diner.
There seemed to be lots of Ring-billed Gulls on the move today. I kept
seeing small flocks moving in a northerly direction.

Sapsuckers arrived over the weekend. FOY in Center Harbor yesterday and
another in Sandwich today.

Subject: [NHBirds] fun seacoast finds this morning
Greetings all,



Unity and I headed to the coast this morning, where we met up with Angie
Krysiak for a couple of hours. My time was initially occupied by setting up
the Purple Martin gourds in Seabrook and Hampton, while Angie an Unity
explored Island Path and Hampton Beach SP. After that, Angie left and Unity
and I continued up to Meadow Pond and inland to the Exeter WTP. Among our
highlights are the following:



Pair of Peregines over Island Path

Adult Glaucous Gull continues on the Seabrook restroom (didn't see the young
bird)

Osprey perched in the marsh off the end of Cross Beach Road

3 Piping Plover and 2 "Ipswich" Savannah Sparrows at Hampton Beach (I missed
the latter since I was off raising gourds)



Meadow Pond was hopping, with three Gadwall, 212 GW Teal, and a calling
Virginia Rail.



And the usual suspects were at Exeter, with a single obvious Greater Scaup
mixed in with the dozens of Lessers and Ring-necks. Also an impressive 19
Buffleheads, all but one in the lower two ponds.

Hi All,

I got a few replies on this hawk ID and confirmation from David Merker that it is a young Red-shouldered hawk and definitely not a Broad-winged hawk.
(One other person suggested juvenile Red-tailed hawk).

If anything changes I’ll let you know.

Subject: [NHBirds] FOY Broadwing, Palm Warbler, and Tree Swallow in Amherst
We were outside enjoying the sun when I heard and then saw our First Of Year Tree Swallow. Shortly afterward we heard our First Of Year Broad-winged Hawk, and we looked up to se an adult Broadwing circling right over the house, perhaps 120 feet up. One of the local Redshoulders engaged it, and the Redshoulder and its mate escorted the Broadwing SW and out of the neighborhood. Unless my eyes and ears deceived me, a third Red-shouldered Hawk join the escort posse.

Fifteen minutes or so later, I walked out back to the edge of marsh, where I found a Palm Warbler working its way along the bank, and then an adult Red-tailed Hawk towards me, over my head, and then toward the house. The Redshoulder pair objected just as strenuously to the Redtail’s presence in the neighborhood as they had objected to the Broadwing.

I was very pleased to see the Easter otter this morning off Long Marsh road; I think it was eating a Cadbury’s Fish Egg.

EBird liked the Red-throated Loon at Adams Point and the lucky 13 pipits at Moore Fields. My favorite peeps though were 5 Rusty Blackbirds and pair of Purple Finches at Oyster River forest.

Subject: [NHBirds] Some FOYs around Great Bay
Osprey Cove yielded few ducks but did have a FOY Pine Warbler and a cavalcade of chickadees in two distinct flocks. The corn stubble at Great Bay farm did not disappoint with 6 FOY Wilson’s Snipe, 4 Turkey Vultures milling about on the ground and a FOY Kestrel atop a recently erected house. Two more Kestrels at Short Street as well as a very accommodating FOY Savannah Sparrow feeding on the ground next to the ‘parking logs’. Lastly a pair of FOY Osprey near one of the platforms inside the weapons depot. It was a very good day for Phoebes (8) and flickers (5). 110 Black Ducks and a scattering of goldeneyes scaup spp and Bufflehead.

Subject: [NHBirds] Cliff Swallow at Odiorne!
The warm weather over the last week or two of March seems to have
brought up some record early arrival dates for swallows in NH as far as
I can tell per Keith & Fox:

Barn Swallow - 3/27/21 with a bird seen in Greenland and another in
Exeter!  Previous early date of March 28 (1985 & 2004)
Northern Rough-winged Swallow - 6 birds found by Pam Hunt in Merrimack. 
Previous early date of April 3rd (1997 & 2010)
CLIFF SWALLOW - 1 today at Odiorne.  Foraging by itself in the high tide
area near Frost Point.  Previous early date of April 8, 1954! (My
previous earliest was April 15, 2001 in Rye!)
https://flic.kr/p/2kQLDxP

Otherwise today at Odiorne, there seemed to be a nice fall-out of
Phoebes.  I took a long walk around the park and had 16 total!  One of
my highest spring totals.

Subject: [NHBirds] GWT Hillsboro/East Washington
A flock of 7-8 mixed male/female Green-winged teal in a nearby field, which
is covered in several inches of Spring runoff water, today at 4:30pm. This
is in Hillsboro, very close to the Washington town line and East Washington
village (1 mile up the road.) A first-ever sighting of this species for me
anywhere around here, nearby, and it is very close to home (basically right
out in front!) in over 5 years of living here. Photos good enough for
positive ID.
Hopefully they’ll stick around for a couple of days or more.

>----------------------------------------------
>CDC and public health officials in several states are collecting
>different types of data to investigate a multistate outbreak of
>_Salmonella [enterica_ serotype] Typhimurium infections in people.
>Epidemiologic and laboratory data show that contact with wild
>songbirds and bird feeders is likely making people sick in this
>outbreak.
>
>Epidemiologic data
>------------------
>As of 30 Mar 2021, a total of 19 people infected with the outbreak
>strain of _Salmonella_ Typhimurium have been reported from 8 states.
>Illnesses started on dates ranging from 26 Dec 2020 to 16 Mar 2021.
>The timeline of the cases can be found at
><https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/typhimurium-04-21/epi.html>.

>Mississippi / 1
>New Hampshire / 1
>Oklahoma / 1

>Washington / 6
>-----------------
>Total / 19
>
>Sick people range in age from 2 months to 89 years, with a median age
>of 16 years, and 63% are female. Of 17 people with information
>available, 8 have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
>
>Wild songbirds, such as pine siskins, can be found throughout the USA,
>so this outbreak may not be limited to the states with known
>illnesses. The true number of sick people in an outbreak is likely
>much higher than the number reported because many people recover
>without medical care and are not tested for _Salmonella_. In addition,
>recent illnesses may not yet be reported as it usually takes 2 to 4
>weeks to determine if a sick person is part of an outbreak.
>
>State and local public health officials are interviewing people about
>the animals they had contact with in the week before they got sick. Of
>the 13 people interviewed, 9 (69%) reported owning a bird feeder and 2
>(15%) people reported contact with a sick or dead wild bird. 10 people
>have pets that had access to or contact with wild birds.
>
>Laboratory data
>---------------
>Public health investigators are using the PulseNet system to identify
>illnesses that may be part of this outbreak. CDC PulseNet manages a
>national database of DNA fingerprints of bacteria that cause foodborne
>illnesses. DNA fingerprinting is performed on bacteria using a method
>called whole genome sequencing (WGS). WGS showed that bacteria from
>sick people's samples are closely related genetically. This means that
>people in this outbreak likely got sick from contact with the same
>source.
>
>Officials in Oregon and Washington collected samples from sick or dead
>wild pine siskin birds. WGS analysis showed that the _Salmonella_ from
>the pine siskins are closely related to bacteria from sick people.
>
>WGS of bacteria isolated from 14 people's samples and 3 animal samples
>did not predict any antimicrobial resistance. Standard antimicrobial
>susceptibility testing by CDC's National Antimicrobial Resistance
>Monitoring System (NARMS) laboratory is currently underway.
>
>Public health actions
>---------------------
>On [1 Apr 2021], CDC issued an investigation notice about this
>outbreak to remind people to not touch or hand-feed wild birds with
>bare hands and always wash hands after touching wild birds, bird
>feeders, and bird baths. Clean and disinfect bird feeders and bird
>baths weekly or when they are visibly dirty. If you find a sick bird,
>call your state wildlife agency or wildlife rehabilitator. If you find
>a dead bird, check with your state wildlife agency for information
>about reporting dead birds in your area.

Subject: [NHBirds] Drama in the Yard: Redtail Takes MODO From Cooper’s Hawk
At 2:30 PM I looked up from the puzzle to see a cloud of feathers rising
from the lawn and an adult female Cooper’s Hawk sitting on a not-yet-dead
Mourning Dove. I went for Linda’s camera, hoping to get a picture,
concerned that the hawk would quickly dispatch the dove and fly away with
it. But the hawk was staring at the sky, immobile. I took some pictures
through the slider until suddenly the Coop took off one way and the MODO
another way, not flying well. Suddenly into my field of view appeared a
Red-tailed Hawk, hot on the trail of the dove. It was short and sweet. The
Redtail then lifted off up into the trees to do some plucking and after a
few minutes it took off for parts unknown.

The Redtails in the neighborhood are pretty domesticated and they regularly
visit the ratla when food is scarce. But they don’t often get to savor
sunflower chip-fattened dove.

Subject: [NHBirds] When will they arrive?
Spring migration is underway and it's the time of year when many misidentifications occur because observers are unfamiliar with the normal arrival schedule of common species. Some arrive early (Eastern Phoebes are already being reported) and others much later (don't expect to see the similar-looking Eastern Wood-Peewee until May). If you're wondering when you might expect to see the return of your "favorite" bird, check the spring arrival chart in this article from the Spring 2007 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V26%20N1%20Spring%202007.pdf ("Spring Arrival Dates Revisited" begins on page 57).

Other articles in this issue include: Spring Birding in Southwestern New Hampshire: Swanzey, Keene and Surry; Northern Goshawk Research in New Hampshire; Wild Turkey Behavior; field notes from the 2007 spring season and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!

New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.

Subject: [NHBirds] Birding in southern Coos county April 1....No joke!
The calendar says April 1. All of our snow had almost disappeared, but
then last nights rain turned to snow about 7 AM today, and it has been
snowing ever since (and pretty heavy as I write this at 6:50 pm) at our
location on Old Cherry Mountain Rd in Carroll at an elevation of 1700'.
Birds were everywhere, so feeders did not get taken down today. All the
usual customers were present, Black-capped Chickadees, Red and white
Breasted Nuthatches, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Brown Creeper , and still
about 30 Common Redpolls. Today however they were joined by 8 Dark-eyed
Juncos and a Song Sparrow. Also today the Barred Owl who has been our
regular visitor since Feb appeared, watching for what ever 4-legged
critters appear under the feeders. The feeder birds ignored it. Probably
the most interesting bird sighting today was just down the road, where
there are farm fields, 4 American Kestrels were observed at once on the
wires, in close proximity to each other, scanning the fields. I do have
pictures of the Barred Owl which I will get into e-bird later.
We have 3" of snow and counting, so who knows what the morning will bring.
April 1st birding at its best!

Subject: [NHBirds] 2 Pied-billed Grebes Peterborough
Over the past few years I have thought I was hearing Pied-billed Grebe vocalizations at the Contoocook River Reservoir (above the Wilder Dam on Hunt Rd) in the emergent vegetation. However, the road noise and vegetation prevented confirmation. Tonight there were 2 grebes swimming and diving in the pool of water which is currently devoid of the vegetation. I believe they may have been breeding there for the past few years.
Also present were 6 Rusty Blackbirds.

I've been able to record Blue Jays in the act of mimicry on several
occasions. Starting at the 2:18 time mark on this collection of mimics are
a few examples of Blue Jays imitating Red-shouldered and Red-tailed Hawks.
Rather convincing by ear but also similar when viewed as a spectrogram side
by side with the bird being imitated.

Blue Jays are notorious for imitating Red-shouldered and Red-tailed hawk calls. I've heard some people say that they do it to scare other birds away from a food source, like a bird feeder, but I don't know how much truth there is in that. I do know I've heard them imitating hawks more than once. Last year I also heard one that seemed to be trying to imitate a duck - a Mallard's quacking, to be exact.

Subject: [NHBirds] Concord waterfowl and hawks (no cranes)
A group of us birded several of Concord's waterfowl sites yesterday with good results. BTW, folks should get out this morning if they can to see what might have been brought down by the rain/snow. 
Our highlights were a good variety of mostly diving ducks plus a modest but fun hawk flight. We went to Horseshoe Pond, Hoit Road Marsh, and Turtle Pond. No cranes but lots of birds and fun! Highlights: 
WoodDuck- most have blended into their breeding grounds but we had several nice looks at this species. Ring-necked Duck- about 100in total with 30 or so at Horseshoe and twice asmany individuals at Hoit Road Marsh.

Bufflehead- two or threeat Hoit Road and Ken and I saw two more on Snow Pond after the officialtrip was over.

CommonGoldeneye- one adult male plus several sub-adult males and a couple of females,all at Hoit Road.

HoodedMerganser- at least six at Hoit Road with a nice “performance” by two ofthe males.

CommonMerganser- several, mostly fly-bys.

Double-crestedCormorant- two adults at Hoit Road. A “first of the season”species.


We were treated to a small stream of hawks at the end of the morning from the deck at Turtle Pond TurkeyVulture- one or more. 

Osprey- a first of the season for all of us.

BaldEagle- an adult eagle, which obligingly came in from the south to fish and perch. Anne also sawone during our drive.

Sharp-shinnedHawk- one bird with ID lessons from Ken.

Red-shoulderedHawk- one bird with ID lessons from Ken.

Red-tailedHawk- one briefly at Horseshoe and then two during “hawk hour” at TurtlePond.


Killdeer-one heard at Turtle Pond.
AmericanKestrel- one male by Bob and Ken at Maplewood Farm.
CommonRaven- one where we met christened the first "Raven Fans" walk of the year!
TreeSwallow- flocks of about 30 at Horseshoe and ten at Turtle Pond werefirst of the season for most of us.

AmericanTree Sparrow- a brief but decent look at one before it flitted away, soon tohead north.

Red-wingedBlackbird- normally not a highlight at this time of the spring but one male at Horseshoe was vigorously showing off its colorful "shoulders" by lifting those patches well clear of its other wing feathers. Impressive!


Bob Quinn with great assistance from Ken Klapper, along with Tom, Dot, Nola, Diana, Jack, Anne, Sylvia, Sally, Kathleen, and Miki. 
Bird on!

Subject: [NHBirds] Eventful evening in Swanzey
I have the day off today so I did a little bit of bird watching in Swanzey.
First I stopped by Wilson Pondnd at around 4:00 p.m. where I saw a few
candidate geese and a flock of probably about a dozen ring-necked ducks who
were also joined by a pair of bufflehead and a female scaup. Not sure
whether greater or lesser.

Then I picked up a friend of mine from Richmond and we went out to airport
road this was about 5:30 p.m. that's where most of the fun happened. Before
we even got to the parking lot of the terminal I saw something out of the
corner of my eye and when I pulled over and got the binoculars on it it was
a peregrine falcon. Once we got past the parking lot and into the marshy
areas we saw several tree swallows over that first pool of water and quite
a few Ravens were hanging around down in that area as well. Then I'm at the
last pool of water before you have to turn around we saw a small flock of
ringnecks with three female hooded mergansers and I would say the main
attraction of the evening which was a pied billed grebe. just before the
entrance to the sewage treatment plant there was a broad-winged hawk in a
tree with two crows above it and they seem to be coexisting peacefully
believe it or not. on our way back we took a little walk down the path
where the short-eared owls had been seen and we did not see any of those
but we were fortunate enough to see a Merlin who sat right out in an open
tree branch and allowed us to get a really good look at him.

One more macabre site that we saw out in that area was evidence that two
beavers had been poached with their skulls tails and paws strewn about the
area

Subject: [NHBirds] Cranes in Concord--whoops
Reposting, because I forgot to change the subject line when I posted about
hearing one this morning, and where.


****
I spent about an hour this morning looking for the Sandhill Cranes and met
two other birders doing the same thing. No luck on finding them in the
scope but as I arrived back to my car in the second parking lot, I heard
one call quite clearly a couple of times. It sounded like it was coming to
the back behind the trees and EAST of the parking lot (whereas the main
portion of the marsh is west). It was surprisingly loud and it didn't
sound too far away, but maybe it was coming from a bird in flight. I did
try to see if I could see them behind one of the three houses just up the
road, but no luck.

A nice bonus was finding a small flock of about 5 Golden-crowned Kinglets
in the woods between the main parking lot for the marsh and the back
wetland. I've missed them!

Here in Jackson we’ve had a day of snow, and wind with gusts reported over 50MPH. Dark eyed juncos returned with large flocks of Robins all around our yard. So of course that would mean the birds would stay down right? Headed over to Sherman Farm (Conway) and sure enough apron 2000 canada geese, keeping company with 19 Snow geese. Not the largest number we’ve seen here but the best so far this year.

Hi all,

I swung by the pull-off at Mud Pond (Peterson WMA) on Route 101 in Dublin to check for waterfowl on the recently open water. I was very surprised to see a juvenile Golden Eagle circling above the marshes for about 10 minutes before taking off to the North. Also, had good looks at a female Northern Harrier.

Unfortunately, I did not have a camera on me, but I’ve linked my eBird checklist with my field notes.

Happy birding,

Subject: [NHBirds] More Lakes Region birds
The crazy winds made for white caps on all the pond, so birding was
challenging

On Lily Pond in Gilford the flock of Ring-necks was at 85 and had been
joined by a nice adult pair of Greater Scaup.

On Opechee there were scattered groups of Ring-necks and a Common Loon.

In Tilton the Fish Crows were back at the other Lakes Region hotspot for
this species. They are always (in season) around the Tilton Diner and
Walgreens.

Eagles were having wild rides in their tree-top nests. I confirmed
incubation at two more nests in the town of Meredith.

I half-heartedly glanced at a few Lakes Region Osprey nests in passing but
don't expect to have any back until next week.

Subject: [NHBirds] Concord Cranes - NO at 11:00
Unity and I checked for the Hoit Marsh cranes from 11-11:30, but saw no sign
of them. There is a LOT of habitat (both marshy bog and cornfield) in this
general area, so they could certainly still be around. Others saw them
shortly after I did, so it's certainly worth checking again - perhaps
earlier in the morning when they were seen today (7-8ish).



There was also an usual Mallard hybrid in the eastern corner of the marsh -
not far from the platform. The sides of its head were paler than I've seen
on any cross with a black duck before, so we were wondering if there could
be something else in there (e.g., Am Wigeon). For fans of hybrid duck
puzzles, a few poor pix are on my eBird checklist:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S84336243



Enjoy, and don't get blown away out there!

Subject: [NHBirds] Sandhill Cranes in Concord
I guess persistence pays off.



I spent a fair bit of time this weekend making periodic forays to some of
Concord's good waterfowl areas, having not been around Sat morning when
there were Gadwall around. This morning I figured I'd try one.more.time in
the event the wind and rain had grounded anything new.



Still lots of Buffleheads and Ring-necked Ducks around, but the obvious
highlight was a pair of SANDHILL CRANESat Hoyt Road Marsh. They were the FAR
back (northwest) corner and probably only viewable from the viewing platform
accessed from the upper parking lot.



This is an interesting location because it's actually pretty typical
BREEDING habitat, whereas most sightings of migrant cranes tend to be in
cornfields. Time will tell of these birds stick around, but I'll be checking
with some frequency!

Migrating birds are returning!

Saturday I saw my first of year Turkey Vultures in Richmond and heard the
call that sounded like a scolding house wren but I could not locate the
bird in the thick bushes.

Sunday I seen a song sparrow in Richmond (they tend to leave the upland
areas in the winter) and quite a few song sparrows in Swanzey by the
airport.

Also by the Swanzey airport I seen a FoY phoebe. I also saw three black
ducks, a mallard, and a hooded merganser.

Subject: [NHBirds] Hinsdale migrants and fish crow passage
Most waterfowl have now left Hinsdale but juvenile Barrow’s Goldeneye
remains, plus a male american wigeon and a single great blue heron.
Also, 5 crows flying north over the setbacks. Did not call, but based
on their shape and flight I am convinced that they were fish crows.
Becoming more and more convinced that there is a regular early morning
northward passage over the setbacks in mid-late March. Since these
birds do not call much nailing this down is a problem. Pam Hunt and
others had 4 (I think) FICR passing over yesterday. Puzzling to say
where they are headed to as we are already close to the northern edge
of their breeding area. However, the more I see of this the more I
become convinced that there is a hitherto undetected regular northward
passage of this species up the Connecticut Valley in early spring. I
suspect that this passage (if I am right) has been largely assigned to
American Crows. Wish that they would call more often!

Subject: [NHBirds] Coastal MIGRATION! (Swallows, Kestrels, Turkey Vultures, BARN SWALLOW, CHICKADEES!)
A wonderful day on the coast today with lots of birds migrating and lots
of FOY's (fist of year birds) for us.  We spent about 3.5 hours just
watching migration from Hampton Beach State Park and from
a location near the Pease Golf Course in Portsmouth.  We also walked
around the long loop at the Portsmouth Country Club.  Highlights:

Brant (FOY) - 6 together in ocean off Foss Beach in Rye.
Northern Shoveler - Two pairs at Portsmouth Country Club.
Gadwall - Pair at Portsmouth Country Club.
American Wigeon - Only about 8 at Portsmouth Country Club and no signs
of Eurasian.
American Black Duck - 507 counted on Great Bay from Portsmouth CC.
Common Merganser - 5 MIGRATING at Hampton Beach SP
Mourning Dove - 1 MIGRATING at Hampton Beach SP.
Piping Plover - Now 3 at Hampton Beach SP.
Double-crested Cormorant (FOY) - 1 in Hampton salt marsh.  3 more on Eel
Pond.
GREAT EGRET (FOY) - 6 total.  3 in Hampton Salt marsh.  2 offshore at
Hampton Beach SP.  1 more on Meadow Pond.
Turkey Vulture - 90 total for the day from various spots!  Most deemed
migrating.
Northern Harrier - 4 migrating.
Bald Eagle - 7 total.  Some migrating and some locals.
American Kestrel (FOY) - 10 migrating.  A few others not migrating.
Merlin - 2 migrating.
Peregrine Falcon - 1 immature bird in salt marsh in Hampton. Watched it
cough up a pellet.
American Crow - 23 MIGRATING from Hampton Beach SP
Fish Crow - 3 deemed to be MIGRATING from Hampton Beach SP.  Later a
group of 8 together, possibly migrating.  All calling.
COMMON RAVEN - 8 birds on coast!  Remarkably how Ravens and Fish Crows
are now regular on coast.  20 years ago, they were both rare on
immediate coastline.
BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE - Clearly birds were migrating today.  At a
"pinch point" we watched chickadees and titmice gather and cross over an
open area.  Over the course of an hour and a half we saw 38 migrating
birds!  Very cool.
https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/320390251
https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/320390271
TUFTED TITMOUSE - 4 MIGRATING with Chickadees.  The first time that I've
witnessed apparent migration for this species.
https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/320390271
Horned Lark - One flock of 11 migrating.
Tree Swallow (FOY) - 54 MIGRATING.  Several more back on territory at
boxes along Cross Beach Road in Seabrook.
BARN SWALLOW (FOY) - Extremely well seen bird at Portsmouth Country
Club.  Appears to be a RECORD early arrival date.  It beats my previous
early date by about 10 days!!!  Apparently beats the previous early
arrival date by one day for the State according to Keith & Fox.
Snow Bunting - 3 latish birds at Hampton Beach SP.
Eastern Meadowlark (FOY) - Two together at Portsmouth CC.  Beautiful
views as they foraged on fairway.  About right on time for arrival.
Red-winged Blackbird - 6 MIGRATING
Brown-headed Cowbird - 118 MIGRATING
Common Grackle - 53 MIGRATING

Subject: [NHBirds] SW NH highlights
Unity and I did our annual Connecticut River "duck run" today, although it
appears many of the ducks had already passed through given the warm weather.
Nowhere did we have large numbers (even of geese), but diversity wasn't bad.
The highlights were a pair of Lesser Scaup on Wilson Pond in Swanzey and the
imm male Barrow's Goldeneye in Hinsdale. The latter was sitting on a log
(?!?) in the middle of the river, and generally giving poor views, but with
persistence we finally got a good profile view of the head to clinch the ID.
Other Hinsdale notables included the Pied-billed Grebe, a SINGLE GWTE, four
Fish Crows over the causeway, and Jack Swatt migrating north between CT and
Lempster.



Some of our best birds were along Airport Road in Swanzey from 7-9. These
included our first Tree Swallows of the year, a great look at a harrier, a
calling snipe, and a SINGING Hermit Thrush. The latter was a fairly faint
song although the bird seemed pretty close, so we wonder if it was a young
bird that overwintered and is just getting geared up for spring.



Farther up the river, a most excellent highlight was lunch at the Hungry
Diner in Walpole. Great food, a flight of craft beers, and a nice enough to
site outside watching for Black Vultures over Fall Mountain. We actually
brought a scope out to our picnic table but all we saw were Turkey Vultures.



We ended at the Charlestown WTP, where things were pretty quiet, although 3
Am Tree Sparrows at the edge of the parking lot were a nice bonus and the
last new species for the day.



Tomorrow's rain will hopefully ground a few waterfowl, so get out early and
get a little wet - who knows what you might find!

were many singing Song Sparrows, which just arrived a couple of days

This afternoon at 1:15, I saw were 4 Sandhill Cranes flying over the Spit
Brook Fire Station in Nashua. They were headed east/northeast at an
altitude of about 500 feet (very rough and quite possibly incorrect
estimate). Since I keep binoculars in my car, I was able to see the gray
coloration, wing shape, legs extended beyond tail, and long necks of these
birds.

Subject: [NHBirds] Hummingbirds in the Snow!
In late May 2013, an unexpected and heavy snowstorm hit New Hampshire during peak hummingbird migration. The result was a nerve-wracking time for North Country birders as they made efforts to help the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds endure the wet, heavy snow and frost. Read all about it in this article and photo gallery from the Spring 2013 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V32%20N1%20Spring%202013%20web.pdf ("Hummingbirds in the Snow" begins on page 30).

Other articles in this issue include: The Connecticut River Valley-Vernon Dam and Hinsdale Setbacks; Fallout!! May 2013; photos and field notes from the 2013 spring season and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!

New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.

In a flock of about 40 green-winged teal this morning at Hinsdale Setbacks: a male euro green winged showing the prominent horizontal white stripe above the folded wing and a complete lack of the vertical pectoral stripes that characterize yank green winged males. Also around were a juvenile male Barrow’s Goldeneye (moulting into adult breeding plumage), the seasons first pied-billed grebe, and a newly arrived phoebe.

Part of a burst of birds in my yard this morning was a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. It is hard to say whether it was a bona fide spring migrant or an over-wintering bird that had been undetected before today. It is nine days earlier than my previous early spring record over the 13 years I have been here.
There were about 20 other species here including a sizable influx of juncos, robins, and grackles.

After a nice evening walk after work (highlight was singing Brown Creeper)
I sat on the deck waiting for the spring chorus.

Woodcock -- 2 displaying
Turkey -- gobbling
Barred Owl -- 1 hooting
Coyotes -- pack yipping
Canada Goose -- pair honking from the swamp
Snow Goose -- the bonus was a group of Snow Geese calling overhead. Sounded
like they were circling looking for somewhere to land. I could hear at
least 2, maybe as many as 4.

I spent a lovely hour poking around the park on my first visit of the

Red-winged blackbirds and the sky was filled with their trilling. I ran
across several Black-capped Chickadees, 4 Cardinals, a Mourning Dove and
heard a Barred owl calling. I was hopeful I could get a visual on him, but
no luck.

In the early afternoon, the horses napped beside the little pond, one

birds from an oak tree near the pond while a porcupine grazed near the top
of the hayfield. A 2nd red tail appeared and soared around nea the first
one.

After the mist lifted this morning, I did a loop through the Monadnock Region and confirmed bald eagles incubating at 5 known nests located in Bennington, Nelson, Stoddard, Surry, and Marlow. Also a saw-whet owl toot-toot-tooting from the hemlocks about 11am at the northeast corner of Nubanusit Lake in Hancock!

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



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



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

Saw one of the short eared owls off airport road in Swanzey. After a
helpful tip from another birder, I walked down the gray dirt road with the
chain running between the two steel drums. I noticed that the field out
there had lots of tunnels through the grass. Must be a lot of rodents out
there for the owls. I also saw a ring necked duck and four hooded
mergansers in the little pool just beyond that location.

Subject: [NHBirds] Bald Eagle recovery
Here's a story that deserves to be spread far and wide:

In 1963, the number of nesting Bald Eagle pairs in the Lower 48
states had fallen to under 500. In a new population survey, the US
Fish & Wildlife Service places the number of nesting pairs in the
Lower 48 at 71,400, and the total Bald Eagle population at 316,700 -
more than 100 times the population of sixty years ago. The new Bald
Eagle Population Size Report: 2020 Update
(https://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/pdf/management/bald-eagle-population-size-2020.pdf)
shows that the eagle population continues to grow rapidly, more than
quadrupling since the last survey in 2008.

I'd call that a success, indeed I would.

Subject: [NHBirds] Northern Shrike
This morning, Joe Scott and I checked a couple spots in the N. Conway\Albany area. We started at Pequawket Pond Trail where signs of spring were manifested by lots of songs including a few species strongly staking out territory and attempting to attract a mate. Nothing overly unusual but nice to see breeders starting to arrive. The highlight was a Merlin that Joe watched dive bomb an adult Bald Eagle which seemed non-plused! A pair of Merlins bred in the area last year, one of at least 4 or 5 in the MW Valley so it looks as though one of them is back.

We then went to the Albany Town Fields off of the Kancamagus Highway as I had seen a report (Sarah Frankel) of a Northern Shrike from yesterday. Our expectations were low as this time of year the species seems to be a one-day wonder on its northward migration. So, we were pleased to catch up with a very cooperative Northern Shrike which we watched go from one to another tree tip-top and fly by us a couple of times. It even tee’d up for a photo opp.

Full reports and a couple photos posted to eBird.

Subject: [NHBirds] Peregrine in the Girdled White Pine
Linda went out to clean some leaves from the garden this morning about 10
AM and was distracted by the Red-shouldered Hawk that’s been calling and
displaying overhead this week. When she glanced over at the girdled white
pine in the front yard she noticed a hawk with its back to her and she came
inside to confer with me. A quick check revealed it to be an adult female
Peregrine Falcon, the first to ever be observed perching in the yard.

After about ten minutes of frantic picture taking by Linda, the falcon
stretched her wings and took off headed north, just as the denizens of the
two landscaping trucks parked across the street emerged to begin their
unholy Spring rituals.

Greetings all,

The numbers at the Winter Crow Roost ion Lawrence, MA continue to fall off as both migrant and local Crows head back to breeding territories. Although we are now under 10,000 Crows in the overnight roost, the action is still spectacular!

Blog entries:

Mar 10, 11, 14, & 17 showing great flight and roost images including after dark and infrared images.

Videos - five new roost action videos just posted! (see CROW PATROL VIDEOS - CLICK HERE)

* overnight time lapse from below the roost (arriving, perching overnight, departing at dawn)
* time lapse tree tops (fascinating video with tree top views of Crows entering roost!)
* time lapse of overnight roost from the bridge
* video showing massive flight swarms (converging around and into the roost)
* overnight time lapse (view of tree tops from back of roost)

Subject: [NHBirds] Jaffrey Catbird(?)
At sunset last night two birds flew over head, one making a catbird’s mew call. They appear to have landed here. I know it’s a bit early for catbirds but they were the right shape/color and the call was unquestionably that of a catbird.

Because of very poor looks, the early timing, and the possibility of a very convincing mimic I am leaving this one questionable.

Better to report and be wrong than not to report, eh?

Hi Birders,

Met Deb Powers at Hampton Beach State Park this afternoon to try and
relocate the Piping Plover. Initially we couldn’t find it and then started
talking about how it “peeps”. Well as soon as we began to peep, it showed
up!

This is what we saw at Hampton:

1 Lone Piping Plover, just wandering around
8 Killdeer, exhibiting mating behavior
Song Sparrow
American Crows mobbing a
Red-Tailed Hawk
2 Late Snow Buntings!
2 Northern Mockingbird
European Starlings
House Sparrow
Some dude w/ a drone

I continued on up to Odiorne State Park and observed the following birds
and sea ducks:

1 Great Cormorant
18 Common Eider
7 Surf Scoter
4 Black Scoter
9 Long-tailed duck
13 Common Golden 👁
11 Common Merganser
2 Common Loon
17 Song Sparrow
1 Red-tailed Hawk
12 Robins
2 Blue Jay
3 Mockingbird
3 Eastern Bluebird
2 House Finch
4 American Crow
Herring Gull
Mallard Duck

Great Day to be outside, hope everyone is able to get out at least a little
bit to enjoy this beautiful weather. Spring has Sprung!!

Diana S

Subject: RE: [NHBirds] Bohemian Waxwings, Sandwich
To pile on a little more for the Lakes Region:

Unity and I were up in Laconia/Tilton yesterday and had a Killdeer, phoebe, and a dozen WW Crossbills at the old Laconia State School campus adjacent to Ahern State Park. The latter were being quite accommodating feeding on fallen white pine cones. Before that we had an adult goshawk fly over us while in the woods at Ahern State Park.

Waterfowl were still fairly sparse except for the expected wintering species. There was a flock of 120 or so ducks at the edge of the ice on Lake Winnisquam as viewed from Rt. 3, but just as we pulled over to scope it a young eagle appeared and flushed everything. Everything except one Common Merganser which for whatever reason didn't fly, and we watched the eagle make repeated aerial attempts at the duck -which dove repeatedly. When the eagle was perched on the ice the duck didn't care at all, and eventually the eagle wandered off.

Silver Lake in Tilton/Belmont had 42 Common Mergs, 25 RN Ducks, and presumably the female Lesser Scaup that overwintered in Laconia.

I'll follow up with a few more Lakes Region sightings over the weekend.

In addition to the Killdeer at Moultonborough Airport, there were two on the sports field next to Beans and Greens in Gilford.
At Moulton Farm in Meredith, the Canada Goose and duck numbers are beginning to grow -- there were 40 Canadas and 16 Mallards in the fields and a nice flock of 14 Brown-headed Cowbirds (1 female and 13 males . . . so there was lots of tail tipping and strutting).
Song Sparrows were singing in Gilford (on Sunday) and in Holderness today.
A displaying Red-shouldered Hawk was very vocal over Center Harbor Neck Road on Sunday and yesterday.
Wood Duck pairs were present in a couple of spots and Red-wing Blackbirds and Grackles were everywhere.
The fields at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center were crawling with "real migrant" Robins this morning.
On Monday, I confirmed incubation at two more Bald Eagle nests.

Spring has sprung!

Sorry for the late post, but yesterday there was a flock of ~25 Bohemians along with 3 Cedars feeding on multiflora rose along Great Rock Road. I was actually on the way to look for a flock of 25 Bohemians that Iain MacLeod had reported a few hours earlier in Moultonborough a few miles away – hmmm, could these be the same birds?

Other interesting and seasonal area birds include a Carolina Wren in Sandwich and an immature goshawk seen from my home on Sunday; a Killdeer at Moultonborough airport (also found by Iain) and FOY phoebe at home on Monday; and an adult Red-shouldered Hawk flying over Diamond Ledge Road today. The Common Redpoll flock in Center Sandwich is at about 40 birds.

Good Birding,

Subject: [NHBirds] Re: Hooksett-Goldfinch????
I have had a small number through the winter except during storms. The
average is 5-6 with 30+ coming when the weather got bad. They were not
interested in thistle. They ate the sunflower hearts primarily. Then over
the past week, we have had about 15-20 Goldfinches steadily and quite a few
are eating thistle-so I assume these are arriving migrants who left before
winter.

Subject: [NHBirds] Help ID'ing - Woodcock in Dover?
I was having a fire in my backyard in Dover last night when a bird popped
into our yard and then flew off. It was getting dark, but I caught a
silhouette - I assumed it was a Robin until it flew away and had the body
more of a duck, its wing flapping made noise and was flying more in a
straight line.

Moments later another similar bird popped into the yard and then flew off,
I did get a brief glimpse of a long and thin beak. All of these combined
made me think it could have been a woodcock. Can anyone corroborate and
think of what else it could have been?

Ditto. I continue to offer sunflower seeds in shell, but I rarely need to replenish that stock as they overwhelmingly prefer the hearts. On average this winter, I purchased 50 pounds hearts every 3 weeks. Thanks for this conversation.

Hi there,
Here in Dunbarton I had about 8 goldfinches until February then they
disappeared.
Today I had a pair return. The male had nice color already. I have always
only fed the birds
sunflower hearts/chips. All birds love them and though they are expensive,
I think it saves

Subject: [NHBirds] Black bird vocalization
I love seeing the black birds return but it's a short lived euphoria
because shortly after they return I realize how challenging it can be to
identify black birds by call. The kerrs, tuks, cheks and chooks fill the
air in one black bird cacophony. Black bird calls may be confusing but
they do a great job of singling the end of winter and for that I am a big
fan!

I put together a quick mix which starts with Common Grackle followed by
Rusty Blackbird and ending with Red-winged Blackbird. Enjoy!

Here in Exeter I have historically had 18-28 Goldfinches at my feeders during “Feeder Watch Season” mid-November to mid-March. This year my tally has been running about 4-12. The count represents the highest count at the feeder area (size of a couple of tennis courts) at one time during the count day.

Subject: [NHBirds] Charlestown Waterfowl
I took a short trip to Charlestown this morning to see what was happening as far as migration was concerned. I was worried I had missed out on the best of the goose movement, but I think the recent cold snap before the weekend helped halt migration until I had the chance to go. I only checked a handful of spots and besides water birds there was not much else to write home about. The GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE that was previously reported near the Charlestown WTP was still present this morning, as was a Snow Goose and hundreds of Canada’s. I’m glad I showed up when I did because both the White-fronted and Snow Geese flew off about 20 minutes after my arrival (just as a large group of birders arrived). Other than that there was nothing else too exceptional but a nice diversity of species nonetheless. My total list of species can be seen below.

One important note I wanted to share is if you’re familiar with the area in Charlestown you may know of the abandoned house along Route 12 that provides essentially the only viewable spot for Great Meadow. Unfortunately, when I pulled up on it today there was a new No Tresspassing sign clearly visible from the side of the road. Truly disappointing as it’s easily one of the best spots in the county for viewing waterfowl during migration. It’s also good for shorebirds and other hard-to-find species like Marsh Wren, Glossy Ibis, Sandhill Crane and more. I urge people not to ignore the signs, tempting as it may be, as it may make it harder to gain possible access in the future.

Charlestown. March 21st:

Snow Goose
Greater White-fronted Goose
Canada Goose
Wood Duck
American Wigeon
Mallard
American Black Duck
Northern Pintail
Green-winged Teal
Ring-necked Duck
Lesser Scaup
Bufflehead

Robert,

We have dozens and dozens of Goldfinches that come to our feeders
everyday. And they stay here year round. It's been that way for about
the last 30 years or more. I never thought that was unusual. They love
sunflower hearts. You may want to try that in your feeder.

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Hooksett-Goldfinch????
As part of fall 2020’s finch ‘superflight’ there was a fairly major
irruption up goldfinches out of the northeast and down into the mid
Atlantic and southeast. Very few goldfinches overwintered in New England
and northeast, but they will probably all be coming back in a big wave over
the next few weeks.

I am posting this for Kathy Mills.  If you can help, contact her, not me.

I have a friend who has a 16 year old daughter who is interested in
learning about bird banding. They live in southern NH. We are looking
for any banders who will be doing any banding demonstrations or looking
for someone to assist on your banding team. Please private message me. I
work with banders in RI and the distance is too far for this girl to travel.


Thanks

Subject: [NHBirds] Jefferson Birds on the Last Day of Winter
The winter birds are still around in good numbers at our feeders in Jefferson. It was a brisk 10 degrees with strong NW winds and blue sky on this last day of winter. The birds started calling as soon as I started filling the platform feeders. I counted 38 Evening Grosbeaks and 5 Pine Grosbeaks in the trees, and approximately 40 Redpolls swirling around.

I was out for a long walk yesterday at Pondicherry and noted more red-breasted nuthatches and golden-crowned kinglets singing. I watched a mink hunting for food in a mostly frozen stream and saw fresh moose tracks. Yesterdays rain and todays below freezing temperature have made the snow hard enough to walk on. This makes for easy traveling off trail, until it warms up and you start breaking through.
