Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast & Mississippi Kites update from Newmarket & Stratham
Jane and I hit the coast again today. A DRAMATIC difference in weather
from yesterday's summer muggy weather, today was cold and dry with
moderate to strong northeast winds, and partly cloudy. Not much
southbound migrant peep movement. A couple of birds of note different
from yesterday.

Glossy Ibis - Flock of 11 flying south
Black Guillemot - 1 in breeding plumage off Little Boar's Head
Semipalmated Sandpiper - 300+ adults roosting in Hampton salt marsh.
Beautiful collection of birds. Some with yellow legs, stained from pollen.
WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER - 1 adult roosting in Hampton salt marsh. First
southbound migrant of summer and a bit early. My earliest July record
and only my 2nd July record. According to Fox & Keith, the earliest
July record is 7/21/90.

Also, we spent well over an hour staring off-shore from Little Boar's
Head, hoping for a shearwater. No luck. It was very choppy and rough
offshore, but the visibility was excellent. The highlight (by far) was
one or two BREACHING MINKE WHALES!! Not only is this a rare sight from
the shore, but these are my first breaching Minke Whales that I have
ever observed. First was a whale far offshore, that breached perhaps 4
times in succession, but two of these were partial breaches, and the of
the two full breaches, only Jane got a good view of one of them and we
weren't certain if it was a Minke or a Humpback. The second whale
breaches came about 30 minutes later from a completely different section
of ocean, but closer. Fortunately when Jason Lambert joined us. Both
times nearly completely out of the water. The small thin shape and lack
of significant flippers confirmed it was a Minke. We later stopped in
and talked to Pete Reynolds (Granite State Whale Watch) who confirmed
that boats were reporting the breaching Minke Whales, which can
sometimes breach regularly in choppy waters. Coincidentally, Melanie
White caught this amazing photo of a breaching Minke Whale from the
Granite State Whale Watch yesterday:

Later we visited the MISSISSIPPI KITES:
------------------------------------------------------
NEWMARKET - The nest in Newmarket is doing OK, but not great. There is
one large chick that was being fed several times when we visited today.
And seen pooping over the side! Very hard to see and impossible to
photograph due to the height and angle of the nest. The pin feathers are
starting in and the bird looked very healthy. The sad part, is that we
ONLY SAW ONE ADULT in the 20 minutes we were there. After talking to
Deb Powers, I am now confident that the bird that was struck by the car
is the male of this nesting pair. With only one adult feeding the
chick, things may be more challenging, particularly with the predicted
unseasonably cold days forecast for the beginning of this week.
REGARDING THE INJURED KITE.....I received word that the bird is still
recuperating in York, Maine at the Center for Wildlife. The difficult
part is that it is being force fed and will not eat on its own. This is
not unusual for captive kites. Jim Parker is an authority on
Mississippi Kites and has worked extensively with injured kites. He has
been corresponding with folks at the rehab center and may assist with
the recuperation.

Jane and I gave some quick scans from historical kite locations in
Newmarket (Gonet Drive & Piscassic Street), but came up empty. Again.
Is this the only pair in Newmarket? I understand that there has been a
3rd adult in the area of the nest, but have not heard of any regular
sightings outside the existing nest spot.

STRATHAM - Jane and I briefly searched off Depot Road and quickly found
a kite near the north end of Depot Road just south of Rt. 33. It
appeared brighter and I believe is an adult male. This may be the same
bird I followed off and on for over an hour a few days ago trying to
nail down a territory or nest. I have not seen or heard of any
potential nest sites, and I am not sure if this bird is nesting or not.
It is possible (hopeful) that a female may be on a nest somewhere in
this neighborhood. The maximum count for kites in this area is 3 and we
have seen birds copulating in the roost snag near the Great Bay
Discovery Center at the end of Depot Road.

Subject: [NHBirds] 5 Brown Pelicans (?) off NH Coast yesterday???
Sue Reynolds, captain of the Uncle Oscar lobster boat, called me to
report that she had a single flock of 5 Brown Pelicans fly over her head
heading north just outside of Rye Harbor. While she was pulling lobster
traps. Although Sue is not a regular birder, she has a lot of
experience with Brown Pelicans from Florida and Northern Gannets up
here, so.......who knows?

Otherwise, a single Brown Pelican was photographed yesterday off Moody
Beach in Wells, Maine.

Jane and I covered the coast today. Typical mid-July birds as things
are starting to change. Tree Swallows are gathering in big numbers,
shorebirds are migrating south offshore, egrets and herons are building
in numbers, and juveniles of several species are appearing. Nothing
terribly rare. Photos and list of highlights below:

Subject: [NHBirds] Seacoast Chapter Pelagic - Tuesday September 5
Sorry I am resending this. I realized there was a typo in the prior post
which at one point it said Monday but the correct date is the 5th as the
post stated which is the Tuesday after labor day.

In past years September pelagics out of Rye harbor have ventured into MA,
NH, and ME waters (which state's waters we visit depends on where the birds
are) and have turned up interesting birds including four species of
Shearwater (Great, Manx, Cory’s, and Sooty), 2 species of Phalarope
(Red-necked and Red), 3 species of Jaeger (Parasitic, Long-tailed,
Pomarine), two species of Storm-petrel (Wilson’s and Leach’s), Northern
Fulmar, and other species such as Black Tern, Sabine’s Gull and Lesser
Black-backed Gull. (As with any trip no bird species is guaranteed or
should to be expected!). As in past years, the Seacoast Chapter of NH
Audubon is organizing an all day trip on Tuesday, September 5th out of Rye
Harbor aboard the MV Granite State. The cost is 75$ per person to cover
fuel, boat time, and high-quality fish-based chum.

Additional details below:

WHEN: Tuesday, September 5th. Meet dockside in Rye Harbor at 7:30AM for an
8:00 departure aboard the MV Granite State, with Captain Pete Reynolds.
We'll spend all day at sea, searching for birds, and return to harbor
around 5pm. Steve Mirick will be calling out birds and many other
experienced pelagic birders will be on board to help call out and chum for
birds. Parking at Rye Harbor costs 5$ per car and is not included in the
trip cost. Participants are encouraged to carpool.

WHAT TO BRING: Binoculars!!! If you would like to bring a field guide, feel
free, but there should be some on board already. If you have a camera,
bring it and all necessary supplies. Snacks and a lunch are suggested along
with ample water as we’ll be at sea for many hours. There is a small galley
on board which serves snacks and beverages. Weather at sea is generally
slightly cooler than weather on shore so please check the forecast and be
prepared. Rain gear (for spray or drizzle), sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat
are recommended. Take motion-sickness pills if you're vulnerable to
seasickness an hour prior to departure.

REGISTRATION: You MUST REGISTER in advance for this trip – to do so please
email Lauren Kras at Lauren.Kras @ gmail.com. After registration please
allow 24-48 hours for confirmation via email.

COST: Cost is 75$ per person. Payment must be received before the trip or
you may lose your spot! Address to send your payment (cash or check) will
be provided upon registration. Ticket price covers boat fuel, crew time,
and chum. Leaders are experts who are volunteering their time. The amount
of chum will depend on number of participants as the cost of chum adds up
quickly.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Any cancellation made within 7 days of the trip is
non-refundable. Exceptions will be made if you find an alternate for your
slot and if your cancellation does not result in bringing the trip roster
below the minimum number to fund the boat.

We hope you will join us!

Subject: [NHBirds] Birding between the notches
I got back last night from a three-day backpacking trip with my niece on
the AT from Crawford to Franconia Notch and had some great birds along the
way. While watching the sunrise over the Presidentials from Zeacliff on
Wednesday morning I had two Bicknell's Thrushes, two Boreal Chickadees, a
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and a Red Crossbill. Later in the morning I had
another Bicknell's Thrush and a few Boreal Chickadees near Mount Guyot. We
stayed that night at Garfield Ridge Campsite where we were visited in the
morning by a "camp-robber" (Gray Jay), as you might expect, it was very
cooperative. We also had a Bicknell's Thrush singing here. Near Garfield
Pond, before heading up Mount Lafayette, a Black-backed Woodpecker was
drumming right above a "stealth" campsite. By following the trail to the
campsite I was able to walk right up to it. I was a little surprised to see
four Common Ravens begging for food from hikers on the summit of Lafayette.
Common birds were Swainson's Thrushes, Winter Wrens, Blackpoll Warblers
among a few others. My big miss was Spruce Grouse despite hiking through
miles of suitable habitat and looking every where, but overall, it was a
great trip! I will be working on my eBird lists later. Jeff

Subject: [NHBirds] Red Crossbill - Sutton
There seems to be a continuing push of RED CROSSBILLS throughout the southern part of the state since Phil Brown reported his sightings a month or so ago. There have been several recent reports from in the Washington/Lempster area and I heard a passing bird in the Canaan Town Forest on 7/1 while lending a hand to Dr. Reitsma of Plymouth State University with his ongoing work with Canada Warblers.
This morning, while starting my work day at a clients home on Rowell Hill Road in Sutton, I was welcomed with the sound of a single bird calling overhead. I never got a glimpse of it as it was obscured by some trees but it called the entire time it passed as it moved out of earshot, probably lasting between 5-10 seconds. Now if one could only show up for me in Sullivan County!

I've noticed as well here in Brookline NH. With the exception of
gypsy moths, I'm not seeing the usual activity. Also, no Japanese
Beetles; none-nada-zip. Something is definitely wrong. Not that I
miss Japanese Beetles, but this is very strange. On the flip side,
we've had some defoliated trees due to gypsy moth damage. The trees
are starting to leaf out again; I'm seeing a ton of adult gypsy moths
flying. Next year is probably going to be bad for gypsy moths.

Have you noticed a marked decrease in pollinators.. honey, bumble bees, wasps an Yellow Jackets.. although I don't really miss them :) but I noticed it yesterday afternoon. There are NO bee/wasp species pollinating anything wild or in m gardens. This time of year the 5 acres around me are usually buzzing with pollinators. I'm in Nottingham. I posted this on the birding/nature sites on facebook also. Is anyone else noticing this phenomenon. Even those moths that look like hummingbirds are missing???? It's wierd.

Subject: [NHBirds] Chimney swiftS Peterborough
Tracking a Cooper’s hawk over downtown Peterborough I realized many small birds circling loosely near it, keeping it in their center. Some 30 chimney swifts. Hard to count—like a kettle of speedy, whirling broadwings. Migrating? Have not noticed them downtown, although haven’t looked for them with intention. Coops drifted off very very high overhead. Lost swifts in the midday haze.

A BROWN PELICAN was photographed on Seavey Island, one of the Isles of
Shoals, on July 11th.



A SANDHILL CRANE was photographed in Milton on July 12th.



2 MISSISSIPPI KITES continued to be seen at their nest site area in
Newmarket until one was reportedly injured in a collision with a car and
taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center for treatment on July 13th. The
prognosis for recovery is good.



2 immature LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS, and 2 immature LAUGHING GULLS were
seen at Jenness Beach in Rye on July 11th.



An immature LITTLE BLUE HERON was seen in the salt marsh located on the
opposite side of Route 1A from Odiorne Point State Park in Rye on July 15th.
A GLOSSY IBIS and a STILT SANDPIPER were also seen along the coast in Rye on

There was an unconfirmed report of a RED-HEADED WOODPECKER seen near Pratt
Pond in the Russell-Abbott State Forest in Wilton on July 16th.



8 PIPING PLOVERS were seen on Hampton Beach during the past week, and
beach-goers are encouraged to give these small, endangered birds room to
roam. The adults and chicks blend in with the beach, so please tread
carefully!



LEAST TERNS continued to be seen nesting on Hampton Beach during the past
week. Like the PIPING PLOVERS, these birds need space to successfully raise
chicks so please be mindful when visiting the beach.



5 GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS were reported from the Concord Airport on July 14th.



5 PURPLE MARTINS were seen at Cross Beach Road in Seabrook on July 15th.

The Mirror Lake Whitefield Loons lost their chick today. It was present with them late yesterday but was missing this afternoon. The eagles have been harassing the loons for a solid month now and it appears they may have finally won the battle for the chick. I noted tonight at Martin Meadow a loon on the nesting platform. These loons are pushing the calendar a bit.                                                                                                                                                        Duane Cross

Late this afternoon Susan Wrisley & I decided to try to find the juvenile
Little Blue Heron reported earlier this morning by Lauren in the salt marsh
across from Odiorne. After an hour of looking through many Snowy Egrets we
located the heron in the middle of the marsh. The gray bill and pale legs
distinguished it from the Snowies quite clearly. We also had good scope
views of a juvenile Stilt Sandpiper among the other shorebirds. Another
nice surprise was a juvenile Glossy Ibis feeding right in front of us as
viewed from the end of Parsons Lane.

This morning from about 10:00-10:30 ish - I was watching and photographing a Merlin (I think - I have only seen one a few times). I was in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Penacook - northern side. I found it by following the racket a crow/raven was making (both were in close proximity). I got some fairly decent shots. It was still in the tree when I left. There are a lot of trees with nice holes in them in the cemetery.

INJURED MISSISSIPPI KITE ALIVE AND IN STABLE CONDITION.

Center for Wildlife
York ME 07-13-17

According to an inside source, the Newmarket Mississippi Kite that was hit by an automobile today is alive and has a decent chance for a successful release back to nature. X-rays are being performed tomorrow on a broken Ulna. The break appears to be clean, and is in the center of the shaft, which gives the facility a good chance of a successful wing repair.
Currently the bird’s wing is wrapped. If the x-rays confirm the prognosis, surgery will be scheduled.

Since a birds bones are hollow, a rod is inserted into both sides of the break. The fact that the break is in the center, and clean, lends itself to a probable successful outcome.
The x-rays will confirm this.

My source provided photos of the MIKI.

Hey Birders,

Earlier, I was about to post a link to a video of the kites I shot last
weekend when I saw Dylan's sad post about the kite being injured. I know
everyone hopes the bird will recover, thank goodness someone took it where
it will get help.

I didn't know if the injured bird was one of the parents at Huckins drive
or one of the others around, so I stopped by the nest on my way home
tonight around 8pm. An adult was on the nest, but I didn't see the other
adult on any of the usual perches.

Anyway, here is a link to my video where I had a few brief views of the
chick in the nest.

I Have delivered this area for 25 years and know of no one raising Quail or gamebirds in the area. I asked at the local feed store the owner who is a bird hunter if he knew of anyone raising game birds and he was not aware of anyone either.

It just amazes me the generosity of people, this wonderful women posted ( on facebook) that a Sandhill crane was hanging out on her front lawn all day in Milton. She was will for people to come see. It had been there from 8am-6:30pm, not sure if it is still there. It was very friendly which was concerning, the below pic was not cropped! I had to keep on backing up. It seemed to like its reflection in her truck and later another car that pulled up to observe. Such a treat, but I hope it has not lost its family.

Subject: [NHBirds] 2 mature black-crowned night heron 2-immature North Hampton NH
Was thrilled to see two mature black-crowned night heron and two immature in the same location as observed last week, North Hampton. I have never seen an adult before.

Additionally, HBSP the least tern continues to nest, a new pair of piping plovers have been born, look like within the last week or so. Two babies with two adult and then the original two babies with two adults that I have been observing for a few weeks now, those babies now getting big.

Heard a cuckoo calling from the forest behind the house. When I played a
recording (xeno-canto.org), a pair emerged and flew toward the house. They
landed briefly before moving on.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, migrating shorebirds, 3 Minke Whales)
I hit the coast late this afternoon. Socked in with fog when I got
there, but fortunately, it lifted. On Jenness Beach in Rye, there was
an eclectic group of birds including 2 immature Lesser Black-backed
Gulls, 2 immature Laughing Gulls, an immature Mute Swan, and a migrating
Whimbrel through the fog!

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

Other migrating shorebirds included a couple of flocks of Short-billed
Dowitchers (30 and 8) and several small flocks of peeps.

After the fog lifted, I scanned far offshore, hoping for a shearwater or
pelican or albatross. No luck. I did see 3 (!) Minke Whales. Possibly
working some of the schools of Pogies.

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, July 10, 2017
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, July 10th, 2017.



A YELLOW-NOSED ALBATROSS was photographed at the Isles of Shoals on July 3rd
and 4th. It was flying near White Island, Seavey Island, and Star Island and
landed several times. A BROWN PELICAN was photographed in the same area on
July 5th. A BLACK TERN, 2 ARCTIC TERNS, and a GREAT CORMORANT were seen at
the Isles of Shoals on July 9th.



An adult SANDHILL CRANE was photographed along Route 3 in some large fields
in Twin Mountain about a mile from the Carroll-Whitefield Town Line on July
4th, and 2 SANDHILL CRANES were seen in a field on Deerfield Road in
Nottingham on July 7th.



2 MISSISSIPPI KITES continue to be seen at their nest site area in
Newmarket, and were last reported on July 9th.



A possible SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER was photographed in Chatham on July 8th
and 9th, but has not been relocated.



A YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was discovered in a small pond near the start
of Sleepy Hollow Drive in Greenland on June 15th, has been seen numerous
times since then, and was last reported on July 3rd. 5 BLACK-CROWNED
NIGHT-HERONS were seen in Hampton Harbor on July 9th.



2 LEAST BITTERNS were reported from World End Pond in Salem on July 4th.



A STILT SANDPIPER was seen in the pools located west of Route 1A just south
of Odiorne Point State Park in Rye on July 9th – an early southbound
migrant!



11 PIPING PLOVERS were tallied along Seabrook and Hampton Beaches on July
9th. Beach-goers are encouraged to give these small, endangered birds room
to roam. The adults and chicks blend in with the beach, so please tread
carefully!



4 pairs of LEAST TERNS were seen nesting on Hampton Beach on July 9th. Like
the PIPING PLOVERS, these birds need space to successfully raise chicks so
please be mindful when visiting the beach.



3 ROSEATE TERNS were seen in Hampton Harbor on July 9th.



2 NELSON’S SPARROWS were reported from the coast on July 9th.



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

the Caps Ridge Trail in Jefferson Notch on July 4th.



A RED CROSSBILL was reported from Washington on July 5th, and 2 WHITE-WINGED
CROSSBILLS were seen at Trudeau Road in Bethlehem on July 9th.



2 EVENING GROSBEAKS have been seen repeatedly in Richmond during the past
week, and were last reported on July 7th. Recently, a pair was seen in Etna,
and another pair was seen in Enfield.



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


Thanks very much and good birding.

The owners of Notchview Farm Rt. 113, Main Rd. Chatham, NH said the bird
was seen yesterday and the day before continually but not today. The
owners said that birders are welcomed. I spent 4 hours and drove 45
miles checking out the area's fields and swamps but there huge areas
that are impossible to get into. This is the last house in Chatham on
the left as you enter Evans Notch. Hope it shows up again.

A likely Scissor-tailed Flycatcher was seen Saturday and Sunday in Chatham, but has not yet been found today. The bird was seen at Notchview Farm on Rt. 113 north from Fryeburg, the last house on the left. The photos are a bit fuzzy but there doesn't seem to be any other species that makes sense.

Subject: [NHBirds] Hiking and Birding in North Chatham, NH
Just saw the post about the possible Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in Chatham. I was just there yesterday, albeit not birding the agricultural fields.

A small party completed a 9.8 mile loop hike of the Baldface Circle Trail. The hike passes through northern hardwoods forest, significant rock ledge on the granite domes of North and South Baldface mountains (3,600'), and some spruce-fir in the saddle between these two peaks. Observed species (27) are listed below. This is a challenging hike (and rock scramble), but great for birding as the ledges support patches of shrubs and tree vegetation that the bird use, but it is also very open making the birds easy to see. A visit to the Emerald Pool, only 0.7 miles in from NH113 is a recommended non-avian detail to take in too.

Subject: [NHBirds] Possible Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in Chatham
I took a look at photos forwarded to me by Becky Suomala at NH Audubon
and taken by Becky Knowles in Chatham NH. They are terrible photos, but
show what may be a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. It would be great if
someone could check it out to confirm this.

I talked with Becky Knowles and she said it would be OK if people
searched for it.

The address is 2427 Main Road, Chatham, NH. This is the location of
Notch View Farm. It is opposite Stone House Road.

Becky photographed the bird on Saturday. She says she has not seen the
bird today, but hasn't been looking. It was in the fields near the
house and was perched on the white fence wires, but there are other
fields in this area.

The bird should be visible from the road; however, she seemed OK for
birders to visit and search for the bird.

Subject: [NHBirds] Boreal Birding 7/9
Today, Scott Heron and I took a trip up north in search of boreal birds. We began our day at the Caps Ridge Trail on Mount Jefferson, then we stopped by the marsh at the Whitefield Airport, Pondicherry NWR and made one last stop to Trudeau Road in Bethlehem before returning home. We had spectacular weather for today's adventure and many notable birds. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate two target species, Gray Jay and Black-backed Woodpecker. The following are today's highlights:

Caps Ridge Trail:
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher 5
https://flic.kr/p/VZoGm1
Boreal Chickadee 1
Bicknell's Thrush 2
https://flic.kr/p/VZoGmm
Swainson's Thrush 8
https://flic.kr/p/WzH4ED
Blackpoll Warbler 14
https://flic.kr/p/VZoGku

Whitefield Airport Marsh:
Pied-billed Grebe 1: The first bird I've ever heard sing.

Pondicherry NWR:
Nice diversity of birds, but nothing exciting to report.

Trudeau Road:
White-winged Crossbill 2: Scott insisted he heard a Finch-like call that initially I didn't hear. Eventually we found the culprit, a first year male White-winged Crossbill. Another bird later joined it, but I was unable to determine its sex.
https://flic.kr/p/VZoGmb

Scott and I also inadvertently did a complete sweep of the state's native Thrushes:

Wood Thrush: Singing at the Hannah Dustin memorial in Canterbury when we met up in the morning.
American Robin
Swainson's Thrush
Bicknell's Thrush
Hermit Thrush: A few at Pondicherry
Veery: One at Pondicherry
Eastern Bluebird: Valley Road, Jefferson

The trail map may be found here
http://www.hudsonnh.gov/docs/hcc/hcc-Musquash-Conservation-12232015.pdf

I didn't work very hard for birds but there were some pleasant sightings.

Hamblett Nash trail with detour on Meetinghouse Trail to back of Musquash
Pond:
Wood Duck - One heard
Common Yellowthroat - Heard everywhere
Song Sparrow - Heard everywhere
Red-winged Blackbird - At least 10

HN Trail to Second Swamp - Woodpecker Jackpot. Within 20 yards there I saw:

Flicker - 3
Also Peewee

Third Swamp
Kingfisher - 2
Red tailed Hawk - 2 being aggressively attacked by what were Blackbirds or
Kingbirds (too far away to ID)
Great Blue Heron standing on nest with at least one chick

Powerlines back to parking lot
This is a good spot for Prairie Warbler and Towhee. I heard at least 10 of
each but only got 2 Towhees and One Prairie Warbler to leave the trees with
some ineffective pishing.
Field Sparrow - At least 5 heard and I finally spotted 2.
Catbird - 1

Non birds:
Ticks - ZERO
Arrowhead - 1

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (4 Least Tern NESTS, Stilt Sandpiper, migrating shorebirds)
Jane and I hit the coast this morning. We ran into Mike Resch in
Seabrook and worked the coast together. Highlights:

Hampton Harbor at low tide early
----------------------------------------------
Great Egret - 32
Black-crowned Night-Heron - 5
Great Blue Heron - 4
Roseate Tern - 3
Common Tern - A few, but not a lot

Seabrook & Hampton Beaches
-----------------------------------------
LEAST TERN - 4 NESTS!!! The 3 nests we had on July 1st made it through
the 4th of July and they picked up one more. 3 of the nests were
grouped relatively close on Seabrook Beach, and one nest continues on
Hampton Beach. All of the nests had eggs in them. 3 nests had 2 eggs
each and 1 nest had a single egg for a total of 7 eggs.
Piping Plover - 11 total. I could NOT relocated the pink-flagged adult
that we saw on July 1st. This bird was banded down in the Bahamas, but
I haven't received details on this bird yet.

Pools & Marshes south of Odiorne
----------------------------------------------
Killdeer - 4
Semiplamated Plover - 2
Semipalmated Sandpiper - 4
Least Sandpiper - 50+
Short-billed Dowitcher - 30
STILT SANDPIPER - 1 adult picked out by Mike Resch independent from
Leo's earlier sighting. This is my 4th July record and my earliest
record for New Hampshire (7/14/12). According to Keith & Fox, the
earliest for the State is July 8th in 1976.
Nelson's Sparrow - 2

Also, MIGRATING SHOREBIRDS included:
-------------------------------------------------------
Short-billed Dowitcher - 22 (3 flocks)

On the way home I swung by the parking lot at Ponemah Bog and found three more Whips singing.

I used my cell phone to try to capture some of their song. (Along with a little extraneous human whispering.)

Subject: [NHBirds] Kingbird pix
A pair of Eastern kingbirds fledged this week in North Haverhill, NH. I
watched them Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and took a few pix.
Tuesday both were in the nest. Wednesday the larger of the two ventured out
of the nest to a nearby branch for a few minutes before making his way back
to his tree and eventually back into the nest. Thursday morning found both
of them on a well-lit branch about 15 feet from the nest. I had great views
of both parents bringing in bugs - mostly dragonflies - and a few berries.
Take a look, http://ianclark.com/critters/kingbirds.php





There have been kingbirds nesting in this nest since I found it in 2012, the
first year I started getting serious about nature photography. On one of my
early trips, I'd seen one of the parents perched on several very promising
photo props. The next morning, I was back before dawn, shoved my kayak into
the brush and set up a nice 'fort' out of camo cloth and sat back to await
the kingbirds. One of the adults eventually showed up and landed right where
I wanted. After preening a bit, he? set to work nabbing dragonflies. After
he grabbed the third, he flew over and landed on the bow of my apparently
not very well hidden kayak. He looked me over, found me uninteresting and
went back to hunting. After he caught a few more dragonflies, he took one to
the nest, which is how I found it. After about the eighth or ninth flight to
catch bugs, he decided the bow of my boat wasn't a suitable perch. My head
provided a much better view, and he was comfortable coming and going from
there for much of the morning. I decided I probably didn't need to try to
hide from them anymore. Ever since, one of the adults will use my kayak as a
perch when I sitting in the area. I found one source that says the greatest
age recorded for kingbirds was 11+ years. I'm hopeful that I've been
watching the same parents all these years.

Subject: [NHBirds] Seabird Cruises out of Newburyport, MA
Once again this summer, Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center is partnering with Newburyport Whale Watch to offer Seabird Cruises. These dedicated seabird trips will be held on August 14 and September 11, Mondays, from 9 am to 3 pm. We will head out in search of storm-petrels, shearwaters, gannets, jaegers, terns, gulls, and phalaropes, and whatever else we can find. These are not whale watching cruises—we are in it for the birds. I will be onboard for sighting and narration. We are hoping for a birdy time on the water this year!

All registrations should be done with Newburyport Whale Watch at 1-800-848-1111 or online at http://newburyportwhalewatch.com/.

Hope to see you on the water this summer!

Subject: [NHBirds] Taxonomic Changes - Goodbye to the Thayer's Gull!
The American Ornithological Society or AOS (formerly called the AOU) is
the "official" organization (in the US at least) for putting names
(common and scientific) on bird species and aligning relationships among
the species. They meet periodically to discuss changes in our
understanding of what we think is a species and address all of the birds
found in North American.

The checklist committee met recently and made a few changes.

The biggest change impacting birders in NH is the elimination of the
Thayer's Gull as a species. This form of gull has always been a
problem.....with taxonomy and identification!! Some of the original
research that created this species has been in question for many years,
and identification has always been controversial. In New Hampshire, I
have the first accepted record for the State back on December 28, 2005.
Since then, there have been a handful of other sightings, and a LOT of
birds that have been confusing or controversial. At last, the Thayer's
Gull has been "lumped" with the Iceland Gull. Good riddance! Both are
now simply called ICELAND GULL!

The latest changes are summarized below:

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (Scoters and a guillemot, but no pelicans or albatrosses)
I spent a few hours on the coast this morning/afternoon. Calm seas and
overcast skies meant good visibility, but it started raining. Hoping for
a flyby albatross......no luck. :-(

Nothing unusual, but of interest is an enormous number of Menhaden
(Pogies) fish that are along the shoreline right now. According to Jim
Chase of the Seacoast Science Center, they have been present in huge
numbers inside Newburyport Harbor and Striped Bass and Bluefin Tuna have
been chasing them. And fishermen chasing them! Apparently a few Tuna
have been speared inside the harbor. Very unusual.

Along the NH coast, I witnessed the Menhaden especially off Seabrook
Beach, where the entire surface of the ocean appeared to be moving!
Along the whole beach! In one spot there were a bunch jumping out of
the water. Presumably being pursued by something big! The only birds
that seemed to associate with these fish were a decent number of large
gulls lining the beach.

My highlights:

Common Eider 460 Informal survey of eiders on coast from Hampton
Beach, north to Odiorne and includes Great Island Common in New Castle.
Doesn't include inner Portsmouth Harbor or rocks off Hampton harbor
inlet. Includes all young eiders. Some as big as adults, some
relatively small fluff balls. Point counts from numerous spots, careful
not to double-count. Largest single point count was near Seacoast
Science Center with 84. Hoping to relocate one of King Eiders, but no luck.
White-winged Scoter 2
Black Scoter 3
Common Loon 7 Scattered along coast.
Northern Gannet 2
Black Guillemot 1 Adult off north side of Great Boar's Head.

Subject: [NHBirds] Granite State whale watch today
Birders,

After seeing the albatross and pelican reports from yesterday, I decided to hop on the 2 PM Granite State Whale Watch. Captain Pete did his best to find the birds, piloting as close to the appropriate islands as was safe and even announcing to the boat what might be there, but there was no sign of either from the water. Oddly, shearwaters continue to be very rare, and we got shutout. 4 Gannets and 5 Wilson's Storm-petrels did show up, and there were at least two Black Guillemots near the island (also a brownish shorebird that was not flying like a Spotted Sandpiper--not sure what that was). With the wind it was pretty choppy at times, which made IDing terns and that shorebird a challenge.


We had a great look at Crow the Fin Whale and four Minkes, so it was a productive trip!

Subject: [NHBirds] a little more on Chukar
According to Cornell Lab of Ornithology the Chukar was first introduced to
North America in 1893 when five pair were shipped from Karachi (India at
that time) to Illinois but it wan't until about 40 years later that the
species became widely introduced over here. Between 1931 and 1970, almost
800,000 were released in 41 states (including Hawaii) and almost 11,000 in
six Canadian provinces.They thrived out in western/north-western U.S.

New Hampshire has at least six private bird hunting clubs that stock
Ring-necked Pheasant, Bobwhite, Quail, Chukar, Hungarian Partridge, and the
like. Their suppliers sometimes offer inter-bred species.

This state includes Chukar in a licensed season: Oct 1 - Dec 31 with a
limit of 4 per day. I don't understand the state's laws well enough to know
if this applies to private land or only to birds found in the wild (i.e.
escaped or otherwise). If it only applies to birds found in the wild then
perhaps Chukar should be counted on life lists for this state.

Btw, the Chukar is the official national bird of Pakistan.

As I said, I snapped a couple of pictures of the Chukar this morning,

pretty crummy too, but they're better than nothing:

Also as I said in my original post, I'm assuming this is a stocked or
escaped bird. Several searches haven't found anything online about
chukar releases in NH, but no other answer makes any sense at all.

A native of southern Eurasia, the Chukar was introduced to North America as a game bird. A handsome little cinnamon and gray partridge with striking stripes along its sides and a bright red bill and feet, the Chukar is a distinctive game bird. Since the 1940s this species has established itself in the Great Basin and southern Canada, where it lives in arid, rocky terrain. It has also been introduced to Hawaii.

Subject: [NHBirds] Re: Chukar?!? in Epping
As best I can determine this was a Chukar and not a cross with a Red-legged
Partridge. I saw it about 10:45. It sure could run and it moved into the
Lowe's parking lot.

Subject: [NHBirds] Cap's Ridge Trail yesterday
Jane and I did our (nearly annual) hike up the Cap's Ridge trail
yesterday. A beautiful day, but it seems harder and harder each year to
leave our house by 4:00 AM to get to the trail head early! :-) Bird
song was OK, but I suspect we might have had better luck a week or two
earlier.

Caps Ridge and LinkTrails, Coos, New Hampshire, US
Jul 4, 2017 6:39 AM - 11:20 AM
Comments: Hike up to Pothole rock and over Link Trail to stream
crossing. Count of birds in one direction only. Beautiful day. Temp in
50's. Partly sunny, but cloudy by the time we got back to car. Not
much wind. Some black flies around rock. Not a lot of bird song, but
some.
18 species - Mostly heard only birds.

Hairy Woodpecker 1
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher 6
Blue-headed Vireo 4
GRAY JAY 2 Juvenile at pothole rock by itself. At least one more
far down Link Trail.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/34915189853/in/photostream/
Black-capped Chickadee 1
BOREAL CHICKADEE 4 All on the way to Pothole Rock. One gave a rare
show as it hopped around in plain view from the rock:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/35337684500/in/dateposted/
Red-breasted Nuthatch 2
Winter Wren 7
Golden-crowned Kinglet 3
BICKNELL'S THRUSH 2 Disappointing showing. One bird calling at
Pothole Rock. Another one called a couple of times far down Link
Trail. And that's it! A more typical count is 4 or 5.
Swainson's Thrush 17 Some singing. Mostly call notes. A bit low.
Previous counts include 30 on 7/5/08, 17 on 6/30/09, 30 on 7/3/10, 18 on
6/27/15, and 19 on 6/25/16.
American Redstart 5
Magnolia Warbler 7
Blackpoll Warbler 16
Yellow-rumped Warbler 13
Black-throated Green Warbler 3
Dark-eyed Junco 10
White-throated Sparrow 5
KURK DORSEY - 1 adult male at parking lot. Rare sighting north of his
normal range!

After the hike, Kurk joined us as we poked around Airport Marsh. There
we found the previously reported Pied-billed Grebe as well as a somewhat
uncommon Double-crested Cormorant. Perhaps more unusual was a COMMON
BUCKEYE butterfly which I photographed. Presumed to be fairly uncommon
or rare sighting from north of the White Mountains. As we left the
Airport Marsh to head home we drove south on Route 3. I commented to
Jane how nice the fields looked along Route 3 in Twin Mountain!!!
Arrghhh! I guess I am now 0 for 5 in finding Sandhill Cranes! :-(

Subject: [NHBirds] Evening Grosbeaks continue, Richmond. Possible courtship behavior.
The Evening Grosbeaks are still visiting my feeders on Fish Hatchery Rd in
Richmond. I saw them Monday and today.

Today I witnessed something odd. The female started flapping her wings like
a baby bird begging for food and the male fed her. Is this courtship
behavior?

This weekend I was able to check in on the Great East Lake/Scribner River
Purple Martins — one pair confirmed swapping places every few minutes in
the gourd. This set up is a mess and could use some help. With the Funspot
colony seemingly 'done for' these may be the last known martins in the
Lakes Region.

Subject: [NHBirds] LEAST BITTERN, Rails at World End Pond
*On Tuesday afternoon Jenna Pettipas, Susan Wrisley & I paddled around
World End Pond in Salem, NH for a little over 4 hours. Our target bird was
the Least Bittern, as this is one of the few places in the state to
reliably find this bird. Reliable might be an overstatement as it is a lot
of work to track them down. However, after paddling through some pretty
thick lily pads for several hours, we did indeed find a beautiful Least
Bittern teed up straddling the reeds overlooking the marsh for several
minutes. The bittern was at the far east side of the pond and first
appeared at about 7PM.*

*While the bittern certainly was the highlight, we were also entertained
by a family of Virginia Rails running around on the lily pads, including 2
little black fuzz-ball babies.*

Good Morning:


I believed I have ID'ed correctly, same place as last year.

Other notable this am:

Two babies piping plovers with parents at HBSP ( believe it is the same pair as last week with three babies, stayed in the same area of the beach, also TONS no of garbage!)

Least Tern still nesting however she flew off with her mate? Had a visual on one egg now.

Seabrook beach I heard a Bobwhite, i was unable to find it however, was in a more residential area, I have not heard one of those sense I was a kid.

Thanks

This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Tuesday, July 4th, 2017.



A BROWN PELICAN was discovered along the coast on June 24th, and was last
reported on the 28th. It was later seen in Newburyport, Massachusetts.



2 SANDHILL CRANES were seen in a field on Deerfield Road in Nottingham on

Subject: [NHBirds] Sandhill Crane in Twin Mountain
John Gutowski and June Rogier saw and photographed an adult Sandhill Crane at 1820 on 4 July 2017 in the Twin Mountain section of Carroll. The location was along Route 3 in some large fields about a mile from the Carroll-Whitefield Town Line. These fields are also a great place to hear whip poor wills from a safe roadside pullout.

I arrived after the crane left and decided to check out Airport Marsh on the way home. I heard and then saw a Pied Billed Grebe on Airport Marsh. This is unusual for this time of year when it should be nesting. Several young hooded mergansers were on the pond as were three young black ducks. A bittern was calling and a great blue heron was hunting frogs. A monarch butterfly was visiting the milkweed.

No Sandhill Cranes in Nottingham either.


The Coordinated Nighthawk Watch in the pine barrens area in Ossipee/Madison/Tamworth turned up 11 nighthawks tonight, the most active area in the state this year. Elsewhere overall nighthawk activity is down. If you'd like to help watch, please contact me.

The singing Swainson's Thrush continues in the Lempster Town Forest off of
Mountain Rd, well out of it's normal breeding range.
Also today at Ashuelot Headwaters Forest in Lempster, we came across a
family of Ruffed Grouse. First 4 young grouse flew up from a grassy area
into a nearby hemlock stand. Then an adult (I'm assuming a female),
strutted out from the grassy area with it's tail fanned out and all fluffed
up in a displaying posture. It quickly did a 180 turn and headed back
towards the wooded edge. shortly later we heard it giving covey calls.
I've seen Ruffed Grouse give a broken wing display to lure me away from
young, but have never seen anything like this. Just wondering if anyone
else has seen this behavior before.

Subject: [NHBirds] Birds & Bugs Big Day (Greater Scaup, YC Night-Heron, Variegated Fritillary, Mississippi Kites, etc)
Today, Jane and I did our third annual 4th of July "Birds & Bugs Big
Day" where we attempted to see or hear as many species of birds,
dragonflies and butterflies as we can in a single day. Once again, not
an all-out effort, but still managed to give it our all from about 5:30
AM to 5:15 PM.

We had our decent year for birds with 105 species, Birds can be
difficult at this time of year as the amount of song decreases.
Highlights included the continuing YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, today off
Sleepy Hollow Road, 2 over-summering GREATER SCAUP on Great Bay, a
Horned Lark with 3 Upland Sandpipers at Pease Tradeport and our first
"fall" migrant Shot-billed Dowitchers. An African Goose "took a shine"
to Jane in Epping, but I don't think we can count it for our list! A
few glaring misses today included Common Loon and Red-bellied Woodpecker!

Dragonflies were generally OK, but not great. No southern vagrants and
mostly expected species. Things seem a bit behind schedule perhaps?
Water levels VERY HIGH on rivers.

Butterflies generally slow with many species represented by only a
single individual. Highlights included a Common Buckeye in Durham and a
VARIEGATED FRITILLARY in North Hampton. My (overdue) first ever for New
Hampshire.

Weather was mostly sunny all day with moderate winds out of the
southwest. Generally muggy and windy. Temperature peaked at about 88F.

A few photos from today including the Variegated Fritillary:

Subject: [NHBirds] Acadian FC, Durham
Birders,

I had an Acadian flycatcher singing this morning shortly after 7 at the Oyster River Forest in Durham. Access is from a parking lot with a metal gate on Packers Falls Road just north of Mill Road. Follow the packed dirt road straight to the large field, about half a mile. The bird sang 4-5 times from the mature forest on the left side of the field and then went quiet for the next half hour that I was there. I did not see it.


Other birds present were 3+ Orchard Orioles, Hermit Thrushes, Scarlet Tanagers, Indigo Buntings, Warbling and Yellow-throated Vireos, and Bobolinks.


In the Woodridge neighborhood, the two stars of the morning were a Blue-winged Warbler and a Red-breasted Nuthatch in the same tree. At Foss Farm, highlights were a Prairie Warbler and a Willow Flycatcher. All told, 50+ species on the greater Mill Road corridor on a sticky July day.

Subject: [NHBirds] Red Crossbill & Bizarre Behavior - Canaan
This morning I went to Canaan to lend a hand in some ongoing research of Canada Warblers with Plymouth State University's Dr. Leonard Reitsma. I joined one of his grad students, Christian Burns, in collecting fledging data of birds they have banded previously. We did our work in the Canaan Town Forest off Route 4 just west of the entrance of Switch Road. We found all our target birds with relative ease but the biggest excitement came in the flyover of a RED CROSSBILL. The bird quickly passed overhead calling as it went by.

Dr. Reitsma met up with us later on after he did the same work in a different location also in Canaan. He informed me that he had at least three SWAINSON'S THRUSH in that area. I've worked in that area with him over the previous two years and on each occasion we found them there suggesting it is likely to be an active breeding area for them.

Dr. Reitsma always seems to have some sort of a surprise when we get together and today was no exception. He showed me a video a student of his, Jess Sullivan, captured of a truly amazing sight. He recorded over an hour and forty-five minutes of video of a Hermit Thrush nest with three chicks in it. Amazingly the birds were being fed by a Black-capped Chickadee!!! To make it more bizarre, he didn't see any adult Hermit Thrush visit the nest for the entire time he recorded it. Truly a sight that raises a ton of questions. As a bonus, he also captured the moment where one of the young actually fledged. I'm not sure of exactly where this was filmed but I'm confident it was in Canaan.
The following link is a short video I took of a portion of Jess' film. Please mind the loud bang towards the end as Dr. Reitsma's neighbor was blasting off a shotgun next door.

Subject: [NHBirds] Coastal comments (3 Least Tern nests, YC Night-Heron, Nelson's Sparrows, Mississippi Kite, etc.)
No Brown Pelicans today. But a few nesting birds of interest. Jane and
I walked a portion of both Seabrook Beach and Hampton Beach very early.
Then worked our way north to check on some other coastal nesters before
heading in to Greenland to check on night-herons and kites.

Photos:

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

LEAST TERN - 3 NESTS! All with adult incubating. Two on Seabrook
Beach, roughly off Dracut Street access. Thanks to Kyle for the tip on
these. Another nest at Hampton Beach SP in area it has nested in past
years. I believe this is the first time that 3 pairs have nested in NH
since the 1960's. We never saw any of the birds fly so can't say how
many eggs are there. These birds are likely getting a bit of a late
start and may all be renesters after June storms. In addition to birds
in Hampton/Seabrook, we had 3 adult Least Terns in Philbrick Marsh in
North Hampton.

PIPING PLOVER - 15 total We only had 8 birds on Seabrook Beach in two
territories. One pair with 4 full grown chicks. And one pair with no
young. At Hampton Beach SP we only had 7 total birds as with one adult
with 4 young chicks and two adults that are STILL INCUBATING.

NELSON'S SPARROW - At least 8! Our first of the year. At least 3 at
Philbrick Marsh on North Hampton/Rye town line. Two more at the end of
Pollock Drive in Rye. And then at least 3 off Marsh Road in Rye,
opposite the Marsh Road Pond. Jason Lambert felt that there were likely
4 or more here. This is a first for this specific location.

SALTMARSH SPARROW - 0!! We did not see a definite Saltmarsh Sparrow
today. We didn't give it much effort, but I would have thought we
should have seen one today. My "sense" is that Nelson's can nest higher
up in the saltmarsh and therefore may cope better with rising sea
levels. In any event, the Saltmarsh Sparrow may be the "canary in the
coal mine" with respect to Global Warming.

FISH CROW - Pair at nest at Odiorne Point State Park. FEEDING YOUNG in
nest. Couldn't see the young, but it appeared they were feeding young.

YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON - 1 adult in back yard off Post Road in
Greenland. .7 MILES NORTH OF Sleepy Hollow Road. Presumed to be the
same bird as that at Sleepy Hollow. Or could there be a pair!?!?!?!
And a nest?!!?!?! A long shot, but intriguing.

MISSISSIPPI KITE - 1 continues near Great Bay Discovery Center in
Greenland. Seen soaring over the roost tree just up from the parking
lot at the center. If there is a nest in this area, it might be tough
to find due to the configuration of the roads and the lack of open
areas. We're still hoping to find a nest here, however. Apparently the
nest in Newmarket is doing well. Hatching should be soon.

Just returned from viewing the 2 Sandhill Cranes that were present in
the large field on Deerfield Road, Nottingham, NH. They both strolled
into view from up near the farm house and crossed the field to just over
the knoll (where we couldn't see them). We then heard crane noises from
the back of the field and the two took flight, squawking all the while.
They were headed roughly southwest and flew from view. All very
exciting!

The least tern continues to nest at HBSP, I am pretty positive the nest has moved three times now, this current location being for almost two weeks. Looking back at other pictures from different days you can see only one egg and the landscape around the nest is different. Today I observed her leave the nest for a brief time and you can see two eggs.

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Seacoast Purple Martin update
We have two Martin nest sites supported by NH Audubon (Pam Hunt's Aerial Insectivore Project) and volunteers. The sites are off Cross Beach Road in Seabrook and off Island Path Road in Hampton. We have expanded the number of gourds at each site this year. We now have 18 gourds at Seabrook, and 12 at Hampton.

The year started out terribly with 10 dead adult Martins found in the gourds after 2 bouts of extended cold rainy weather in May. They likely died of starvation and hypothermia. Since then, things have been steadily improving. Here is my latest report from yesterday:

Warren, Pat and I visited the gourds in Seabrook at 10:30 AM. Every gourd (18/18) has eggs - 10 nests have 5 eggs each, the remainder have 4 eggs each except for gourd 17 which has 3, for a total of 81 eggs. We may get a couple more eggs in 17 this week, but I expect egg laying is done for the other gourds and the majority of the nests are incubating, indicated by the fact that several Martins stayed in the gourds until the rack was well on its way down. I expect we will see some hatchlings next week.

At Hampton we have 2 well formed nests and found one egg on the ground. We did not see any Martins, but that is not unusual as it was a good time for the birds to be out feeding. We are host to several newly hatched Tree Swallows in gourd 5, same as last year. Hope to see some Martin eggs here next week.

In addition to these two sites, there is a nest with eggs at a private residence in Rye.

Before doing the nest check we were lucky to see the Brown Pelican in Hampton Harbor and while watching had an immature Peregrine Falcon fly overhead.

Subject: [NHBirds] Our Pelican is now in Newburyport
Angela Walsh just posted on Ebird that she had a Brown Pelican fly-by the
Route-1 Merrimack River bridge in downtown Newburyport at 6:30 this evening
(Weds).

Most likely our bird that was found last Saturday by Steve & Jane, and
viewed for most of this morning in Hampton Harbor.

Date: 6/28/17 2:39 pm
From: Pamela Hunt <phunt...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Request for Information: Cliff Swallows
Greetings NH Birders,



In the recent revision of NH's endangered species list (March 2017), we elevated Cliff Swallow to "threatened" to acknowledge recent declines in both the number of colonies and number of birds at extant colonies. Like many other aerial insectivores, Cliff Swallows are declining over a larger area than NH, although in this particular case the greatest declines are in the Northeastern United States. In an effort to get a better handle on the state's population, I'll be checking historical colonies over the next couple of years, as well as trying to find new ones, and the help of the extensive NH birding community would be welcomed. There are a couple of specific things you can do.

1) If you see Cliff Swallows flying around in June and July, there's a very good chance they're nesting somewhere nearby. Take a moment to watch them and look for potential colony locations. All known colonies in NH are on buildings or bridges, and usually in open areas like farms or near large bodies of water. If you DO find nests PLEASE report these! If you use eBird, simply add a note about the number of nests in the species comments. The same applies if you see birds obviously going under a bridge or the eaves of a barn. If you don't use eBird, consider doing so, but otherwise report any confirmed nestings to me. Many of the current reports in eBird ARE from known sites, but many (if not most) lack any notation about breeding activity, so even if the site is known to me, it's always valuable to provide additional data. As a rule of thumb, it can never HURT to provide a few notes on this species so that people like me who use the data have a little more information to work with.

2) If you're interested in some avian sleuthing, there are a handful of places in the state with some recent history of Cliff Swallows in summer but no confirmed nestings. I'm happy to direct people to these locations, at which point the directives from the previous point apply. Most current colonies are in the Lakes Region or North Country, but there are scattered ones elsewhere. The latter tend to be quite small (often only 1-4 pairs), so it can take some perseverance to even find a site with active birds in the first place. But if you do, you might have a chance to add a new colony to the list!

In all cases, I'd very much appreciate specific locations for Cliff Swallow sightings, especially if there are nests. If you're not using a specific location in eBird, at least try to make a note about the location in a checklist that covers more territory (e.g., the "NH Coast" eBird hotspot). I'd obviously prefer a fine-tuned location for any colonies, but will take what I can get.



Thanks in advance for any help you can provide in this endeavor, and if you're interested in an assignment by all means get back to me!

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

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

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

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

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

The pelican is still at the North end of the mud flats across from the harbour bridge as of 11:48.

The water has risen enough that it's feet are under water, so it may move shortly. I've already seen it fly around a bit before returning to the same spot.

Thank you to all of the folks that have been updating us on the status of this bird!

because they use snakeskin in their nests and I hardly ever see snakes

Subject: [NHBirds] Information on banded Willet
Here is the promised information on the banded Willet photographed at
the King Rail Hotspot in Wells, Maine.

Hi Bob,

Great photos of 0914-47138 and thank you for sharing! The BBL will email
you an official certificate of appreciation for reporting the bird, but
here is some more info:

This bird was banded on 6/10/2014 near the Drake's Island part of the
refuge. Only about 3 miles (and 3 years) north of where you observed it!
We're hoping to recapture it this year to remove the geolocator, which
provides data on wintering locations for a Willet project we've been
working on.

Thanks again!

Lauren Gilpatrick

NOTE THE TIME!!

Field Trip: Cascade Marsh in Sutton
Date: Saturday, July 8, 3:00 PM until dusk.
Join Bob Quinn on a trip in the outer reaches of Merrimack County at a "new" spot that traditionally has been a great place for marsh birds, including bitterns, rails, and nesting Pied-billed Grebes. We'll also check out some nearby sites in New London and Andover. Be prepared for some damp walking but on mostly flat and easy terrain. Please note that we will be out until dusk to get the most out of the marsh birds. Meet at the end of the ramp at Exit 10 off Interstate 89 north, in South Sutton.

Field Trip: Early Morning on Bog Road
Date: Friday, July 7, 6:00-8:00 am
Bog Road in Penacook is home to several "northern" species (e.g., Canada Warbler) not easy to find in most of Concord. On this newest installment of the chapter's popular "birding before work" series, we'll walk the old RR grade through forest and wetland to see what early July has to offer. Note that we're far more likely to hear than see many of the birds in this area, so consider the excursion a chance to practice your bird song identification skills! Meet at the Riverhill Market (junction of Carter Hill and Bog Roads). Contact Pam Hunt at 753-9137 or <biodiva...><mailto:<biodiva...>

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, June 26, 2017
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, June 26th, 2017.



A BROWN PELICAN was seen in several locations along the coast on June 24th
and 25th. It was seen from Concord Point in Rye, Bicentennial Park in
Hampton, and in Hampton Harbor, and could possibly still be present.



A BROWN BOOBY was discovered on Cobbett’s Pond in Windham on June 10th. It
was last reported on the 20th and appears to have left the area.



An immature male KING EIDER was seen along the coast in the cove located at
the North Hampton and Rye town line on June 24th.



3 MISSISSIPPI KITES were seen near their nest in Newmarket on June 20th.



A BLACK VULTURE was seen in Hollis on June 22nd.



An adult YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was discovered in a small pond near the
start of Sleepy Hollow Drive in Greenland on June 15th, was last reported on
the 26th, and may still be present.



A pair of PIPING PLOVERS has hatched 3 chicks and they were seen foraging on
Hampton Beach on June 26th. The young birds are extremely vulnerable at this
stage of their lives and beach-goers are encouraged to give these small,
endangered birds room to roam. The adults and chicks blend in with the
beach, so please tread carefully!



A pair of LEAST TERNS was seen nesting on Hampton Beach on June 26th. Like
the PIPING PLOVERS, these birds need space to successfully raise chicks.



A COMMON TERN was seen on Squam Lake on June 22nd.



6 GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS were reported from the Concord Airport on June 22nd.



20 PURPLE MARTINS were seen at Cross Beach Road in Seabrook on June 24th.



A BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER was seen near the Little Cherry Pond trail at the
Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson on June 22nd.



A male SPRUCE GROUSE was seen near the summit of Mount Success on June 24th.



There were several reports of RED CROSSBILLS from scattered locations during
the past week.



BICKNELL’S THRUSHES were reported from Mount Washington, Dixville Peak, and
Smarts Mountain (Lyme) during the past week.



A RED-THROATED LOON was reported on June 23rd, and a RED-NECKED GREBE was
reported on the 24th, both from Lake Winnipesauke.



Other lingering migrants still being reported during the past week included
a BUFFLEHEAD and 2 RED-NECKED GREBES on the coast, and a LESSER SCAUP in
Rochester.



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


Thanks very much and good birding.

Subject: [NHBirds] Jefferson Notch Road is OPEN
The Jefferson Notch Road is now OPEN as of 24 June 2017.

Boreal birding is often very good in the vicinity of the Caps Ridge Trailhead which is at 3007 feet in elevation. A one mile hike to an overlook called Pothole Rock should afford plenty of blackpoll warblers and likely Bicknell's thrush, yellow bellied flycatcher, boreal chickadee, gray jay and black backed woodpecker. Sometimes the best woodpeckering (a type of birding) is the first few hundred yards of trail.

Subject: [NHBirds] Boreal Birding: Dixville, NH
Today my friend Joe Bourget and I made the trip up to the north country in search of boreal birds. We visited the wind turbine access road at Dixville Peak in Dixville/Millsfield. It was a day filled with nostalgia as I worked on this mountain for two months assisting in a Bicknell's Thrush study in 2011. We arrived around 5:30am and slowly made our way to the top, frequently stopping along the way to document what bird species we could find. The roughly seven mile drive yielded 35 species. The following are the highlights from our trip:

YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER 1: One extremely cooperative bird seen right before the gates at the end of the road before the turbines. It kept perching closer and closer to us seemingly attracted to the sounds of our camera shutters. Unfortunately, it kept getting chased off by a Blackpoll Warbler.
https://flic.kr/p/W8VhXH
BICKNELL'S THRUSH 1: An exhaustive search finally resulted in the discovery of one bird near the end of the road. It provided brief views but no photo opportunities. I did manage to record a video containing its calls.
https://flic.kr/p/W8UFvF
SWAINSON'S THRUSH 6: Prevalent at the end of the road.
MOURNING WARBLER 1: One bird found along the access road well below the summit. The first Mourning Warbler I've ever photographed!
https://flic.kr/p/W5sWPh
BLACKPOLL WARBLER 6: Many at and near the end of the road.
FOX SPARROW 1: One singing bird up at the end of the road. It was exciting to see this bird here as it was one of my fellow field tech's in 2011 who first noted these birds to be breeding here.
https://flic.kr/p/W8UFsK

Extralimital: After leaving Dixvillle we went just across the border to the Wentlock WMA in Island Pond, VT. We went in hopes of a few more boreal species we missed in NH. Neither of us could've expected what we found when we discovered an adult female SPRUCE GROUSE with 5(!) chicks in tow. Both of us got amazing photos and mine can be found in the following album.

and it wasn't those two.

Subject: [NHBirds] Brown Pelican - YES?!?!!? And a bit more info
One of the (non-birder) folks who lives out on Concord Point in Rye just
emailed me that the Brown Pelican was BACK there late this afternoon and
was present up until about an hour ago, when it flew off and headed
south. It may be that this bird will continue along our coast. We'll
see! I've asked her to let me know if it returns to Concord Point.

In other news.....Louis Bevier has taken a close look at the photos of
the NH bird and the Maine bird and believes that they are the same
individual based on some specific plumage characteristics. The "Maine
Bird" had been hanging out in the Prout's Neck area of Maine. Off
Scarborough and Old Orchard Beach. It was first seen on June 20th and
was seen daily until it was last seen on the evening of June 23rd. The
New Hampshire bird was seen first at 9:30 AM in Rye NH at Seal Rocks
pull-off. So the timing is perfect to suggest these are almost
certainly the same bird.

Louis is estimating that the bird may be 12+ months old. Possibly
closer to 20 months.

Today was one of the three days this season when the Mt. Washington
Auto Road is open for sunrise making it a great time to drive it for
birds. The road opened today at 3:30am which is a good time if you are
aiming to be on the summit for sunrise. The forecast was for clouds on
the summit, so we arrived by 5:00 and headed up, birding as we went.
It was sunny up until about 5,500 feet and birds were vocal despite an
increasing wind. Here are the highlights.


Bicknell's Thrush 5

Philadelphia Vireo 1

American Pipit 1

Yellow-bellied Flycatcher 3

Subject: [NHBirds] Saturday 6/24 birding at Bear Brook SP (Alder Flycatcher) and Smarts Mountain (Bicknell's Thrush)
Yesterday I led two separate birding trips - a morning trip at Bear Brook
State Park in Allenstown and an evening 9.4 mile loop hike up Smarts
Mountain in Lyme, NH.

The Bear Brook State Park trip was an introductory birding class for about
15 novice birders. We tallied 27 species in a short quarter-mile of
walking. Highlights were a singing Alder Flycatcher, battling
Black-and-White Warblers, and easy for all to view was an Eastern Phoebe
delivering food to a fledged Brown-headed Cowbird (creating a perfect
teachable moment).

The hike up Smarts Mountain yielded a singing Bicknell's Thrush at the
summit (3,280 ft.), a few Swainson's Thrushes, Blackpoll, Magnolia,
Nashville, and Yellow-rumped Warblers. Views at the top (fire tower) were
spectacular.
