From: Dana Duxbury-Fox <danafox...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Crow Patrol - They are back at the New Balance Factory
I just counted and Bob and I have been observing what I now feel are "our"
crows (but we share them with all of you) for SEVEN months. I can hardly
believe it has been that long.



The key factors of why we have had that longevity are: we do it together, we
are retired and for a variety of reasons have not travelled afar for long
this winter, we live close by, and having changed our big meal of the day to
an earlier time (our stomachs like going to bed less full) we are free and
not hungry at most folk's dinner time which is crow patrol time.



The big news is that the crows have returned to their home base of October
to very late December (and where they have been other years) to roost. You
can not imagine the deep sense of excitement we had on Monday night (the
23rd) as we were wheeling along Merrimack St. eastward trying to find the
murder of crows I was sure were headed to the New Balance Factory roost.
Why did they leave this site is another question? They were 15,000 stronger
at their best and it was a very cold winter. The original site could not
have accommodated so many I am sure. Also, I do not know if they ever moved
out other years. We just do not have the records to show their past habits.



We had started out that night on the north side of the river parked on the
southern end of Ames St. where they had staged for many of the previous
nights. There were about 800 birds there when suddenly they all flew across
the river. Thank heavens I was watching at that moment. I could just see a
few sitting high in leafless trees on the south side of the river through
the line of trees on the north side. Oh, my - off we sped going east on
Water St. to Broadway hoping against hope that they had not flown back, over
the bridge, turned west on Shattuck St., none at the Riley Park, none on the
trees to our right along the river as we drove, none down Eaton St. We got
on Andover St. and headed towards Industrial Way back to our old crow
hunting habitat of a month ago and turned right to the end of the road by
Haffner's. There they were, some started moving east. We quickly pulled out
to Andover St. and found them in the back of the next driveway at the Neuco
Building many on the roof. Suddenly, they all took off east. Well, as they
say "I wish you were there". That ole adage "As the crow flies" is not how
I can drive but drive I did. It is sunset, getting darker, there are pot
holes- some bigger than others, but I'm getting to know those! There are
street lights, stop signs, and one way streets and these streets are not in
a bee line to where the crows are going. I keep admonishing Bob to keep his
eyes on the crows. Imagine they can fly faster than I can drive. Suddenly,
we can't see any crows. Where have they gone? I press on, onto Broadway to
Merrimack St. hoping against hope I am right. Suddenly, a flock of hundreds
of crows is moving to my left along the river towards the New Balance
Factory. You can not imagine how excited I was - even Bob was excited. We
got to South Union St. and headed over the bridge looking carefully to our
left at the thin line of River Birch trees we knew to well from months past.
A few were milling around. I got turned around at the first opportunity and
back over the bridge where we went into the New Balance Factory parking lot
on the east side of the street. It was now about 8:05 just a half hour after
sunset - they know the timing!!! I pulled over to the left and back up as
close to the road where I could see the tree tops across the street. The
crows were filling in- there was even enough light to take pictures. The
crows had flown 1.45 miles to get there. I can't tell you how excited I
was.



How did they know where to come? Which crows are these? They are both Fish
and American. By the way, Fish Crows nest two weeks later than American
crows. Are these all non-breeders? Why had they come back here. Now, some
may have come back on Sunday night as we "lost" 500 crows after sunset that
night. I just didn't think they would stage so far away and then fly so far
to this roost. So many questions.



Well, as you can guess we had to go back to make sure this was not a one day
wonder. So last night (the 24th) back to Ames St. where there were no crows
and a few flying across the river. Over to the Industrial Park again. This
time there were a few hundred staging on the roof of the Gem building -
across from the New Balance Distribution Center. Where were the others? Why
here? Well, about sunset, they took off east and we were in pursuit. Again I
am no match and they won again disappearing to the east. A few crows kept
moving in our direction and we finally found them staging on the roof of the
buildings to the south of the New Balance Factory. We parked to the west of
the factory on that horrid dirt road where we could see the river and the
buildings. Once down on the roofs to the south, the crows were not visible
but they soon started to lift and swirl some right out over the river. Some
were on the rooves of buildings on the north side of the river. Swirl and
settle down, another group would rise and swirl. Bob thinks there were over
800 birds. Many must have staged in a different location. Soon it was like
the ole days - birds on the ground, on the wires, and on the rooves. Just
after sunset, they rose and moved out over the river circling around and
finally settling down in the trees where we watched them from the parking
lot again and Bob got some street side pictures.



How long will this go on??????



Keep tuned!!



Also, a new exciting crow project is about to begin - more soon, and Craig
Gibson and we are headed to "Crow School" as Craig calls it with the famous
Professor John Marzluff in Washington State in June. What has happened to
us?

Subject: [NHBirds] "Warbler Wednesdays" Begin Wednesday, May 2nd
The first of our popular, early morning, May series of weekly birding
begins next Wednesday, May 2nd. We'll be seeking warblers and other spring
migrants at Lebanon’s secluded gem, Boston Lot Lake.

Meet in the more northerly of the two parking lots on NH Rt. 10 across from
Wilder Dam at 7:00 a.m.

At the outset, walking conditions include a fairly steep, uphill climb and
surfaces that are unpaved and uneven. Once at the lake, the surfaces are
level and grassy.

The event is free and open to the public. All experience levels are
welcome. Bring binoculars and/or spotting scopes as you prefer.

To be led by Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee Chair Blake Allison.

Subject: [NHBirds] Friday Evening Woodcock Viewing, Lee
This Friday, (April 27) NH Audubon and the Lee Conservation Commission
will be holding a woodcock viewing at the Joe Ford Wildlife Sanctuary, at
7:00 p.m.

The Joe Ford Wildlife Sanctuary is an established woodcock singing ground,
with as many as four males observed displaying in recent weeks. We invite
folks to spend an hour learning about, listening to, and observing these
unique upland shorebirds. While we wait for the woodcock to get started
with their courtship displays, we'll discuss their life history - what they
eat, preferred habitats, courtship, nesting and migration. Also discussed
will be the decline in woodcock population. Woodcock are among 46 avian
species listed by NH Fish and Game as species of greatest conservation
need. As lack of appropriate early successional habitats is the main factor
in this species' decline, we will discuss the importance of creating and
managing the type of open shrubland favored by woodcock.

As well as being able to hear, and (more difficult) see the woodcock,
we'll have photographs of peenting woodcock, a weirdly wonderful
woodcock skull,
and a frozen woodcock to provide participants with a good look at the
bird's beautiful cryptic plumage, distinctive beak, and those special
primaries which create the whistling heard during the male's spiraling
flight. During past events, we've often been treated to barred owl duets
and the goodnight songs of hermit thrush, wood thrush, robin, song sparrow,
cardinal and catbird.

The viewing area is a short walk along the field edge, which is somewhat
rough and mounded; sturdy shoes are suggested. Ticks and mud are a
definite possibility, and spring evenings can be damp and cool, so please
dress accordingly. Feel free to bring a folding chair, and binoculars.
All ages are very welcome, but children must be able to watch quietly while
the woodcocks are displaying as noises and moving around can disrupt the
birds - it's been our experience that this has never been an issue and that
the children attending this event are extremely respectful.

Joe Ford Wildlife Sanctuary is located on Garrity Road in Lee - after
turning onto Garrity from Mast Road (155A) the sanctuary is located about
1/2 mile down Garrity on the right. Traffic cones will be placed near the
sanctuary entrance. Parking is along the sanctuary side of Garrity, and we
request that cars pull well off the road and ask that folks not park on the
crests of hills.

Subject: [NHBirds] Massabesic 4/23
I had a singing Ruby-crowned Kinglet at Massabesic Audubon Center
today. First time I've ever heard a kinglet singing.

Also heard at least two loons calling from different parts on the lake.

Hi guys, thanks for the responses! Steve Mirick believes it to be an immature male white-winged scoter, and I've gotten that suggestion from a couple others too. I'm definitely unfamiliar with a lot of those immature/in-between plumages, so every chance to learn helps! White-winged scoter was my initial thought but the lack of white on the face had thrown me off. Thanks for your help once again!-Molly JacobsonMerrimack

Not sure if you've got a response yet.  The white patch on the wing bar looks like a White-winged scoter mark, possibly a female given the lack of color on the bill.  The other possibility is Muscovy Duck.  The bill looked two toned in the video but I'm not sure of the effect of lighting on it.  I have seen some with larger and more distal white wing patches than the guides usually show (I use Sibleys).  Size might help differentiate as Muscovies are much larger than scoters.
Thanks for sharing, I love bird challenges like this, even though I'm frequently wrong, but it helps if many people weigh in.

Behind my house here in Keene I have a fairly good sized field. While viewing the Bluebird pair currently checking out the nesting boxes I spotted two Palm Warblers feeding in the short grass. Later in the afternoon I spotted a grayish bird about crow size in that same field. I put my spotting scope of it and was pleasantly surprised to see a Peregrine Falcon. Sadly his dinner was a Northern Flicker. Both the Palm Warblers and Falcon were first time birds for me in my backyard.

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Oyster River Forest
I'd like to add one more thing to Terri's and Miriam's
otherwise-excellent answers. As Miriam's map shows, there are two
parking areas along Packers Falls Road. The left-hand one on the map
is directly at the Oyster River Forest Trail trailhead; the other is
about 100 yards east. According to both Google Maps and Bing Maps,
the address of the left (trailhead) parking area is approximately 352
Packers Falls Road, Durham NH. Put that into your GPS, and it should
bring you right to the parking area. From there, the field where the
Wheatear is being seen is about half a mile's walk straight down the
trail.

One more thing: both Bing and Google Maps say that the first part of
the trail is a road; Bing calls it "Worthen Road," while Google calls
it an "unnamed road." BOTH ARE WRONG. The trail is exactly that: a
wide dirt trail, passable only with a rough-terrain vehicle like a
jeep or an ATV. It's also blocked by a locked metal gate. It is NOT
accessible to regular cars.

Parking indicated by the circles, take the trail straight in (about .5
miles). At the opening into the field, look to your right. The Wheatear
is perfectly colored to blend on the ground, but you will see her hopping
or running, searching for food. We enjoyed observing her yesterday.

Cliff,
There is a small pull off with room for 5 or 6 cars. There's also a sign.
The property is located along Mill and Packers Falls roads. There are two
ways to reach the main access point which is off Packers Falls Road. 1.
From Rt 155A (Mast Road) turn onto Packer's Falls Road. Follow Packer's
Falls Road 1.1 miles until you see a dirt road with a gate on your left.
Turn in and park to the side of the gate. If you reach Mill Road, you've
gone too far. 2. From downtown Durham, take Mill Road all the way to the
end (approximately 2.5 miles). Turn right onto Packers Falls Road. Almost
immediately you will see a dirt road with a gate on your right. turn in
and park there. If you see a trailer park or Jenkins Road on your left
you've gone too far.

Best of luck,

From: Mascoma Chapter NH Audubon <mascomabirds...>
Subject: [NHBirds] River Road in Hanover and Lyme on Saturday, April 21
The temperature may have been hovering near 30, and many of the Connecticut
River's side bays and impoundments were showing patchy ice covering, but
clear skies, a bright sun and the presence of avian migrants held forth the
prospect that spring will arrive.

The Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon. along with co-sponsors the Hanover
Conservancy and the Upper Valley Land Trust (UVLT) hosted seventeen birders
on a leisurely journey up the Connecticut beginning at Hanover's Wilson's
Landing, then making several stops on River Road before finishing at Lyme's
Grant Brook.

Forty species were seen over the course of two-and-a-half hours. Highlights
among waterfowl were ring-necked ducks (18) and bufflehead (3). At Grant
Brook, a juvenile bald eagle was seen flying downriver with a harassing
crow in pursuit. Many of the songbird species observed were ones that would
not be associated with migration such as dark-eyed juncos, black-capped
chickadees, American goldfinches and the now ubiquitous northern cardinal.
But sightings of swamp sparrows, eastern phoebes, red-winged blackbirds,
common grackles, a pine warbler and yellow-bellied sapsuckers gave
assurance that a new phase of bird watching was at hand. Complete eBird
lists for the day can be found by clicking on the links below.

Thanks to The Hanover Conservancy's Gail McPeek, the UVLT's Kaytee
Currie-Huggard and Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee members George Clark,
Jeff MacQueen and Blake Allison for being co-leaders. Thanks to Blake for
keeping the counts and preparing the eBird reports.

On Saturday I drove a circuit of various raptor hotspots around Coos County, starting at Pinkham's Grant near Mt. Washington, and traveling thru Gorham, Milan, Cambridge, Errol, Dixville, Colebrook, Stewartstown, Groveton, Stark, and Berlin before ending at Pinkham's Grant again. Lots of snow still in woods and at higher elevation. Rivers open, but Umbagog Lake and other large water bodies still ice-covered. Highlights included the following:

Bald Eagle - 5, including 3 incubating/brooding at 3 nests in Milan, Dummer, Northumberland; known nests in Errol and Cambridge were empty when I checked
Peregrine Falcon - 5, including 2 pairs at nesting cliffs at Abeniki Mtn in Dixville and Devils Slide in Stark, Abeniki pair were actively harassing a Common Raven that was trying to incubate
Osprey - 7, all 7 perched on nests in Dummer, Columbia and Northumberland, 6 of 7 nests checked had birds present
Merlin - 2, pair copulating near Groveton Water wells in Northumberland

Pied-billed Grebe - 1 at Magill Bay on Pontook Reservoir in Dummer
Ring-necked Duck - 95 (about 50:50 males to females) on Mile Long Pond in Errol
Common Goldeneye - 53 (about 50:50 males to females) in pool below Errol Dam, several 1st yr males ID'ed
Barrow's Goldeneye - 2 with COGO flock, obvious half-moon facial spot

Jane and I led the annual "Owl Prowl" field trip today for the Seacoast
Chapter of NH Audubon.  We starting bright and (very) early, meeting at
4:00 AM!  The weather today was clear and nice, but a bit cold with the
temperature in the 30's and a light wind. About 20 birders today. 
including a few UNH students.  As always, a beautiful walk in the woods
in a beautiful spot.

https://www.ci.durham.nh.us/boc_conservation/longmarsh-preserve

The owl show was not terribly great, with only some distant hooting
owls.  But there were several nice birds including beautiful Pileated
Woodpeckers, two singing Winter Wrens, and a nice flotilla of
Ring-necked Ducks and 2 Pied-billed Grebes on Colby Marsh.

Another highlight (for me) was seeing Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter in the
morning sky!

Birders,

OK, I lied, on the 20th there were several Fish Crows on the UNH campus, at least one of which was carrying nesting materials and speaking to a real estate professional.


This morning, the Surrey Lane marsh had 1 Grebe-billed Pie, 2 West Virginia rails grunting at each other, a Marsh Wren, and Swamp Sparrow.


Thompson Forest, town land .1 miles west of Packers Falls on Wednesday Hill Road added 75 (at least) Palm Warblers, feeding on the ground in the area recently cleared for cottontails. That was really an amazing sight. Also present were a Louisiana Waterthrush, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a couple of waxwings and bluebirds, and a sapsucker.


Plus 5 cars at Oyster River Forest, presumably wheatear seekers.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wheatear- yes
Was able to meet up with Kurk Dorsey, Scott Heron, and a few others and
relocated the wheatear in the same place it had been seen. We watched
it for about 45 minutes running around the woody debris pile on the
right side of the field immediately upon entering the opening. We lost
it about 15 minutes before leaving but I'm sure it's around probably
over the hill. So excited to have seen this incredible bird!-Molly

Subject: [NHBirds] First chick hatched in our Carolina Wren nest
We're so happy for our girl! She laid five eggs, one a day each morning,
between March 31 and April 4. She laid a possible sixth on April 5 and
began to incubate. She did not sit on the eggs for the first five days
except at night.

After 14 days of incubating the first chick hatched tonight. Here are
links to a few videos: the hatching, some later views of the chick, and a
link to our live stream on YouTube which runs all day. In the video
description there are some links to other clips (like when she laid her
eggs).

Subject: [NHBirds] Wheatear - tomorrow?
Hi all,I am going to be at UNH tomorrow and was hoping to go and try and find the northern wheatear while I was in the area. I was just wondering if anyone else was planning to be out there at Oyster River Forest as well, maybe around 1-2pm? More pairs of eyes would probably be very helpful, and this is likely my only chance in the near future to find the bird, so if I could get there while there's others looking for it, that would be awesome! Alternatively, any updates on its whereabouts in that field tomorrow would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

The Wheater was spotted at 2 pm in the field on the right about half way
back just where the grass stops and cutting starts. Quite actively feeding.

After being out of state for the last two weeks (and hearing reports of less than ideal April weather - plus experiencing it Sun-Mon!), I finally got out on one of my weekly bird walks this morning. A friend and I walked around The Island from 7-9, and in the process tallied 38 species of birds. Highlights included:

Broad-winged Hawk
about a dozen Eastern Phoebes (my numbers are at home, hence the vagueness for some counts!)
multiple singing Ruby-crowned Kinglets
4-5 Golden-crowned Kinglets
2 Hermit Thrushes
1 Purple Finch (singing)
2 Chipping Sparrows
1 Fox Sparrow (singing)
dozens of Song Sparrows
3 Brown-headed Cowbirds
3 Pine Warblers
3 (Yellow) Palm Warblers
1 Yellow-rumped Warbler

Good to see spring finally arrive, and looking forward to the Penacook Survey this weekend!

Further increases in songbirds this morning. Now at least 50 eastern palm warblers (no westerns yet), about 15 r-c kinglets (singing all over), 20 or so myrtles. Also present was a single long-tailed duck (the second this spring). Hermit thrushes were widespread with about 10 birds. There seems to have been a large fallout of hermits in the last couple of days with up to 20 in my yard in Dummerston (only a couple of acres). The north winds seem to be bottling the small birds up and preventing them heading further north.

Hi,
This is probably off the mark for this list serve. It's a advanced version
of our AZ rare bird alert phone message. I started birding in '82 in
Tucson, AZ and had 2 great friends who chased birds all over the state.
Meeting at 330am and driving 150 miles to the Chihuahua mountains, birding
all day, and getting home after dark was a common event. Looking for
weekend birders to get together explore NH's birds. I don't know the great
areas in the state.

This afternoon I did some birding around the Connecticut River in Charlestown and despite there being no spring in sight the birds are still moving. The area is still rich in waterbirds and other migrants are starting to file in. The following are the highlights from today:

Great Meadows:

A quick stop at Woodmont Orchard yielded 7 American Kestrels and 4 Wilson's
Snipe. Kestrels are common at this location during migration so I often
overlook them so I was surprised when I reviewed the lazy pictures I took
of one bird that was close that the bird was banded.

I'm still researching what information the bands provide, best I can tell
HWI has been banding AMKE with color bands I'll report this sighting using

So keep an eye out for banded birds, they're banded for a reason and
resightings provide valuable data!

Subject: [NHBirds] Penacook arrivals




After being out of state for the last two weeks (and hearing reports of less than ideal April weather - plus experiencing it Sun-Mon!), I finally got out on one of my weekly bird walks this morning. A friend and I walked around The Island from 7-9, and in the process tallied 38 species of birds. Highlights included:

Broad-winged Hawk
about a dozen Eastern Phoebes (my numbers are at home, hence the vagueness for some counts!)
multiple singing Ruby-crowned Kinglets
4-5 Golden-crowned Kinglets
2 Hermit Thrushes
1 Purple Finch (singing)
2 Chipping Sparrows
1 Fox Sparrow (singing)
dozens of Song Sparrows
3 Brown-headed Cowbirds
3 Pine Warblers
3 (Yellow) Palm Warblers
1 Yellow-rumped Warbler

Good to see spring finally arrive, and looking forward to the Penacook Survey this weekend!

Subject: [NHBirds] Hinsdale migrants
Further increases in songbirds this morning. Now at least 50 eastern palm warblers (no westerns yet), about 15 r-c kinglets (singing all over), 20 or so myrtles. Also present was a single long-tailed duck (the second this spring). Hermit thrushes were widespread with about 10 birds. There seems to have been a large fallout of hermits in the last couple of days with up to 20 in my yard in Dummerston (only a couple of acres). The north winds seem to be bottling the small birds up and preventing them heading further north.

Hi,
This is probably off the mark for this list serve. It's a advanced version
of our AZ rare bird alert phone message. I started birding in '82 in
Tucson, AZ and had 2 great friends who chased birds all over the state.
Meeting at 330am and driving 150 miles to the Chihuahua mountains, birding
all day, and getting home after dark was a common event. Looking for
weekend birders to get together explore NH's birds. I don't know the great
areas in the state.

Well, the car passed its inspection, so off to the coast I went for some storm birding. Not sure how I missed Steve but ran into Leo a few times. Man, I looked like a drowned rat when I got home (ran out to retrieve a mylar balloon before it got swept into the sea).

Subject: [NHBirds] Lesser Black-backed Gull FALLOUT on NH coast
Inspired by reports of a flock of 7 Lesser Black-backed Gulls yesterday
and Leo's report of Laughing Gulls on the coast this morning, I left
work after lunch and headed to the coast this afternoon during the
height of the coastal storm that has been hitting the coast.  Off and on
heavy and light rain with a few torrential downpours and strong winds
out of the ENE at about 30 knots.  "Downed" flocks of gulls were
gathered at random spots on the seacoast and with them, lots of Lesser
Black-backed Gulls.  I covered the coast completely from Seabrook north
to Portsmouth.

Bonaparte's Gull  2     Only two birds.  Both 1st cycle birds at Hampton
Beach SP.
LAUGHING GULL  9     Adult birds in breeding plumage.  4 together in
Little River salt marsh.  4 distinctly different birds in Philbrick
Marsh, and 1 further north in Rye.
Ring-billed Gull  X     Not a lot.
Herring Gull  X
LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL  24     21 adults, 1 3rd cycle, 2 2nd cycle. 
Huge fallout caused by heavy rains and winds.  I believe this represents
a new record high count for the State.  Birds as follows:  1 on athletic
fields of Winnicunnet High School in Hampton, 3 at Hampton Beach SP, 3
in Little River Saltmarsh, 6 together on lawns of mansions in North
Hampton, 2 in townline cove, 4 in Philbrick Marsh, 3 in marsh opposite
Rye Harbor, 1 in pannes south of Odiorne, and 1 on flats at Wooden
Bridge.  I don't believe I double-counted any birds, but it was
difficult to count birds due to winds and rain, and there was some
movement of birds.  Flocks of gulls in Hampton salt marsh, townline
cove, and some of Rye salt marshes could not be scanned adequately due
to rain, and may have held more birds.  All birds consistent with graellsii.
Great Black-backed Gull  X

Subject: [NHBirds] Laughing Gulls - Rye
This morning I had 3 Laughing gulls in the marsh on east side of 1A just
south of Rye Harbor, between Harbor and Locke Rd. Also had 1 Laughing gull
in the marsh just south of Petey's on west side of 1A. Other notable
sightings were 20 Brant in Rye harbor (that didn't stay long) and half a
dozen lesser black-back gulls scattered along the coast.

I had 72 Bonaparte's Gulls on Spofford this afternoon, smashing my previous
high count away from the coast. Lake Onota in Western MA had 130 plus,
including at least one little gull (report from western Mass Facebook).
Worth getting out to check lakes tomorrow as it is unlikely anything will
leave overnight.

Happy Spring, Bird Friends,

The Tamworth Conservation Commission (TCC) offers Wednesday morning spring
bird walks. Anyone interested in birds is welcome. Meet at 7:00 am at the
Tamworth Town House parking area at the west end of Tamworth Village. The
group drives and walks to excellent birding spots in and around Tamworth
and returns by 9:15 (but people can peel off earlier). Bring binoculars if
you have them (but we have an extra or two). Dress for the weather. Rain
or shine, but not in a deluge. Over the 5 weeks, we'll see (or at least
hear) ~80 species & (re)learn many birds' songs. Contact:

From: Stephen Mirick <smirick...>
Subject: [NHBirds] More on Northern Wheatear with maps
The relocation of the Northern Wheatear by Kurk Dorsey today was really
an amazing find.  This field is part of the Oyster River Forest trail
system owned by the town of Durham and NOT part of the Moore Fields
complex of agricultural fields, but it is actually very close.  The
habitat is brushy pasture fields (managed for New England
Cottontail).....not what I would expect for a Wheatear, but it seems
that most of New Hampshire's Wheatears have shown up in very bizarre
locations!

In any event, the bird was first found by Mike Thompson on April 4th at
the Moore Fields.  So the bird has been in the area for 10 days! So it
may very well stay longer in any of these fields.  But good luck to
anyone who searches.  Despite 8 people on the bird this morning, it
seems to have vanished in thin air while watching the bird.  And (to the
best of my knowledge) was not seen again for the remainder of the day. 
Not an easy bird to find!  Thanks to Kurk for staying on the bird for
over an hour as birders finally showed up.

Of course I forgot my nice camera today!  But I managed a decent
digiscope photo:

and two maps for anyone who wants to hike out and give it a shot!

We arrived home around 5:00 after spending the afternoon on the coast; the scenic way home from Boston. The first thing we did was look out into the yard, and in flew a flock of warblers! There were at least 10 Palm Warblers, and 2 Yellow-rumped Warblers! What a nice welcome home.

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Northern Wheatear relocated in Durham
The funny thing is that I went to Oyster River Forest (Packers Falls Road in Durham near the Lee town line) hoping to hear a Louisiana Waterthrush, and I really wanted to go at dawn but got invited to breakfast with the in-laws. So by dumb luck, which defines most of my birding, I happened to step out of the woods into the large field just as the wheatear walked across my path. 3 minutes either way and I probably would have missed it, since it spent almost no time near the trails. I observed the bird from 11:15 or so until I left at 12:15 or so with several birders on the bird. During that time, it mostly fed inconspicuously on the ground, some times getting within 10 feet of me (I must look sort of like whatever wheatears eat), but on a couple of occasions it flew up into trees as high as 25 feet off the ground or into the shrubs near the creek. I lost it 3 times, but it always came back to some open spot--more dumb luck. It moved in a huge U-shape around the field as I observed it. Good luck to others, and huge thanks to Michael Thompson for finding it in the first place last week, so I didn't faint when I had to call Steve about a wheatear.

Other birds around
4 Osprey
Kestrel (I just assumed American, but maybe.....)
Pileated, Hairy, Flicker
Blue-headed Vireo
several Pine and Palm Warblers
GCKinglet
(no waterthrushes....)

No Corn Buntings, Ricebirds, or Sorghum Suckers, but maybe I wasn't imaginative enough.

Hi again so soon, A couple of comments on the post and on here have informed me it's a spring peeper. That was definitely unexpected! I've never heard one sound like that.

Hi Molly,

Are you sure these were bird calls?  I think they're somethingelse.  I could easily be wrong; it's just that in my experience,steady one- or two-note calls that keep up without changing for manyseconds are usually not a bird.  Bird songs and calls always havebreaks in them.  Your recordings sound to me like frogs - springpeepers to be exact.

Zeke Cornell and I birded at Horseshoe Pond and NH Audubon's McLane
Center before work this morning. It was foggy at Horseshoe with poor
visibility although we did find the Pied-billed Grebe.


NH Audubon was busy with lots of newly-arrived sparrows - Savannah
Sparrows, Chipping Sparrows, and a couple of Field Sparrows with a
load of juncos. Pine Warblers were singing so we had all three species
of similar trillers going at once.


There were also 2 Palm Warblers and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.


Around noon a Northern Harrier flew over.

I spent some time out birding in this wonderful spring weather this
morning. Got a lot of good spring birds, including a couple of very
nice first-of-years:

At Clair's Landing in Auburn, there were several Ring-necked Ducks
and a beautiful pair of Wood Ducks.
From several places around the lake, I was able to watch Common
Loons on the water in the distance.
On Priscilla Lane off Bypass 28, in Auburn, I got a Northern Flicker
(yellow-shafted version).

At Massabesic Audubon Center, there were swarms of Tree Swallows,
several Bluebirds, some Song Sparrows, Goldfinches that were actually
all or mostly gold, and a couple of zippy little brown birds I never
got a clear look at. I also encountered another birder, who had seen
a warbler of some kind. She showed me a couple of pictures, and I'm
pretty sure it was a CAPE MAY WARBLER.

Subject: [NHBirds] Many Happy Returns
My wife and I are spending our first spring in our new residence on Lyme's Acorn Hill Road. I anxiously have been wondering with what bird species will be sharing our new home. The habitat is quite different than that which we had at our Whipple Hill property. There we had perhaps six acres of fields and a small fire pond surrounded by woods sporting a mix of coniferous (mostly white pine and hemlock) and deciduous (maple, birch, poplar and oak). The new place is surrounded by open fields. Our relatively few trees are strung along the old stone wall behind the house. The nearest water source is Pout Pond which is about  a mile away.

At Whipple Hill, I would by now be hearing our annually resident song sparrow. I wondered whether we now would have a song sparrow like we did before? Turns out we have three to date. Phoebes? I today came home from a morning of birding and was greeted by a first of season, tail-bobbing bird sitting on a utility wire next to the garage. Hooray!
Next up? Grassland birds and warblers?

Subject: [NHBirds] "Pompy" Oxbow Drama Friday Afternoon
I was making my way north along US Route 5 around 12:30 p.m. When passing the oxbow area Chris Rimmer described earlier today, I slowed and observed a large number of waterfowl, mostly common mergansers and Canada geese, out on the water between the railroad causeway and the oxbow's riverside embankment.
Parking on the shoulder, I walked a few yards farther north trying to get a less obstructed view. Through the brush, I could see the gulls described by Chris in a posting earlier in the day. Suddenly, the gulls, I counted 19, rose skyward in a swirling mass. I thought, what spooked them? A flash of movement low across the impoundment made me think raptor. Sure enough, moments later, an adult bald eagle made another pass over the assembled waterfowl. I don't know whether it caught anything. I was not able to relocate it.
About  five minutes later, the gulls settled back on the water and relative tranquility returned. Interestingly, the geese and mergansers did not take flight during the brief time when the eagle appeared and attacked.

Blue, swallows, waterfowl, and many other songbirds. I have seen more than
15 Green Herons here in late summer and one of the wetlands they used to
frequent is now surrounded by massive gravel and sand mounds.

Took a walk around Heron Pond and associated wetlands. This pond is
loaded with Wood Ducks - I scared up 32 Wood Ducks.

I also saw the following:

8 Great Blue Heron nests and 10 Great Blue Herons
25 Common Grackles
12 Red-winged Blackbirds
2 Hooded Mergansers
2 Common Mergansers
2 Mallards
35 Tree Swallows
8 Northern Rough-winged Swallows
1 Belted Kingfisher
1 Brown Creeper

Not bad for an hour ramble.

Subject: [NHBirds] Crow Patarol Update
For those of you that have been tracking the Greater Lawrence Winter Crow
Roost, there are still crows staging and roosting in Lawrence.



For the past week or so they have been staging on the North side of the
Merrimack River in Lawrence mainly along Water Street. At the corner of
Ames and Water Streets is an old brick building recently adorned with a
painted white sign. With Crows standing on the ground in front of the
message, it makes for a great picture. They seem to roost behind the
Riverside Church and the U shape yellow two story apartment building to the
east.

There are now 1,600 - 2000 crows. This includes a flock of about 30 Fish
Crows. This is a far cry from the over 16,000 crows earlier in the winter.



I only wish some of these crows were tagged so I knew where they went in the
day and where they eventually nest - if they are old enough to breed. Where
have all the other crows gone? How many of them were migrants from the
north? Where did they all go in the day? Questions we may begin to get
answers to next year if we are successful in getting a project funded to
track them.



It still is a show! I will keep you posted.

Dana

Hi Bethany and Heather,

Here are the details about a program that will take place tomorrow night at Odiorne Point State Park. I don’t know that I would go by myself, but if either Selim or Joshua wanted to go, or either of you or Nedim or Stan, I would go with you.

My guess is that being a school night it might be too late, especially for Joshie. Hoeever, we could also set a time to leave (or slip out if the talk goes on too long). I think it would be over by 8:30 pm.

I’ll give you a call to see if there’s any interest.

Subject: [NHBirds] Greater White-fronted Goose - Effingham
NH Audubon received a photo of a Greater White-fronted Goose, taken today at a small pond behind a residence in Effingham. It is with a flock of Canada Geese and the geese only spend a few hours of the day there because the pond is frozen. We will hopefully have the homeowners' contact information to share if someone wants to visit. In the meantime, birders may want to check other area water bodies and fields where the geese may be feeding when they are not at this pond.

From: Alfred Maley <alfredmaley...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Birding Notes From Old Iberia: The Odd Case of the Lesser Kestrel
Kestrels are nearly worldwide in occurrence, with the American Kestrel to
be found widely in both North and South America, and the (Common) Kestrel
found all over Europe and into Asia. The Kestrel of Europe looks and acts
much as its American cousin, and eats similar prey items. But there is
another bird, the Lesser Kestrel, that despite its VERY similar appearance
to the Kestrel, has vastly different breeding and migration habits.

While the Kestrel will retreat from northern Europe in winter, the Lesser
Kestrel deserts Europe almost entirely in winter. Its range is restricted
to southern Europe to begin with and its principal food (grasshoppers) are
mighty scarce in the winter time. But in nearby Los Barrios and in Tarifa
as well, a small number of Lesser Kestrels manage to withstand the "rigors"
of winter and are resident year round.

The first interesting difference between the two kestrels is that the
Lesser Kestrel migrates in single-species flocks. It is not uncommon to
encounter a field full of hunting Lesser Kestrels early in the morning,
looking for breakfast before they take off for the day on their way
north.What these groups of 20-30 birds represents is unknown, but it is
likely related to the second interesting difference: the Lesser Kestrel is
a communal nester.

Communal nesting may have evolved in favorable cliff nesting sites, with
lots of convenient crevices. But it has mostly switched to nesting in
buildings, often in cathedrals which had niches left over as part of the
building process. Today they are also found in other types of old
buildings, wherever there are numerous under-roof crevices in close
proximity. The smallish cathedral in Los Barrios is a stakeout for this
species, not only because of its niches, but also because the local
naturalists have taken to providing nest boxes specifically for them. There
are currently about 50 pairs of Lesser Kestrels using the boxes in Los
Barrios, on the cathedral and on the rooftops of several apartment
buildings as well. This is a good thing since church owners actively
discourage pigeons and in the process tend to exclude the kestrels.

The close proximity of the nesting sites to humans has made them
particularly easy to observe, which is convenient because one of their best
field marks is their white toenails! Also, you can focus your binoculars on
the church spires and the locals will simply assume you are admiring the
architecture close-up.

In other news Linda photographed a wintering Short-eared Owl in the pasture
by the house on Sunday, the fifth owl species for our 1000 acre “yard”. It
was odd to see this species against a green background. Hopefully there
will be some green somewhere when we get back to Hampstead in ten days time.

Subject: [NHBirds] Re: white pigeon
It could be a king pigeon. We have one. It was a rescue. They are bred for
food and shows. The show pigeon is smaller. I think that's what we have
based on photos. She likely escaped from a hunting preserve near Cornish,
we are told.

Zeke Cornell and I headed to the Connecticut River starting in
Charlestown in search of waterfowl and a few other spring birds.
Although the river is open, there's still a lot of frozen water bodies
especially in the higher elevations. Rt. 12 in Charlestown was
definitely the hot spot, especially the Lower Meadows and the ponds
opposite Herrick's Cove. Hinsdale was fairly quiet. It was a chilly
wind which seemed to keep landbirds down. Highlights below.

Subject: [NHBirds] Nt. Pierce boreal birds
This morning I took a hike up the Crawford Path to Mt. Pierce (trailhead at Crawford Notch) and it was birdier than it has been in some time. Re “winter” or boreal birds, species included: Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Pine Siskin, Purple Finch and White-winged Crossbill. Additionally, there was a nice flock of 12-15 Cedar Waxwings which seem to have been somewhat scarce this winter (although for a brief time a large flock in N. Conway).

The full report was posted to eBird.

While driving up Rte 302 from Bartlett to the trailhead, I had at least four groups of Pine Siskins along the side of the road, totaling 30-40 individuals. So, some of our winter visitors are still around.

Subject: [NHBirds] Frog Walks in Lee
With permission of the moderator:

The Lee Conservation Commission will be holding its 7th annual Frog Walk in
the Lee Town Forest Complex. A visit to some of the vernal pools in the
forest on Monday revealed wood frogs swimming beneath the ice, so these
hardy critters are already making their way to their natal pools. There,
in the course of a week or two they will find mates, breed, and lay eggs.
The only “cold blooded” vertebrate able to live and breed above the Arctic
Circle, the wood frog has mastered cryogenics - that is, it is able to
withstand the freezing of up to 60% of its body during hibernation. During
the winter, each frog becomes, in effect, a frogcicle, lying quiescent,
without respiration or heartbeat, until spring.

Anyone interested in learning more about these remarkable creatures and
observing them in their breeding pools is invited to participate. Two
walks are scheduled: a twilight walk on Friday, April 13 and a morning walk
on Saturday, April 14. We'll be visiting a vernal pool or two and we'll
also stop by the town bog where we'll take a look at the unique plant
species that are able to make a life for themselves in this difficult
habitat.
Both walks will meet at the Lee Town Library and are open to all ages.
Friday's weather forecast is for a warm day and mild evening; Saturday is
predicted to be much cooler, so please dress accordingly.

If you have any questions about these walks, please feel free to email me.

*Twilight Walk. Friday, April 13, 7:00 pm. *Early evening is a great time
to enjoy the frog chorus. Our walk will take us along the Town Bog and
through the Town Forest to one or two vernal pools. Though this is more of
a listening walk, we will get close to where to frogs are courting, and if
the weather and circumstances are right, we may see migrating amphibians.
Past walks have also afforded us good looks at wood ducks, woodcock and
barred owls. Flashlights may be useful.

*Morning Walk. Saturday, April 14th, 10:00 am. *We'll visit the Town Bog
and several vernal pools, check out the frogs, their crèches and perhaps
find other species who use the vernal pool; though it's early and the
run-up has thus far been cold, we may find spotted salamander egg masses as
well.

Subject: [NHBirds] Chickadee stuck in my feeder!
Yesterday afternoon after a long day out I arrived home hoping to relax for a bit before tackling supper. I got myself an ice water in a glass and sat to look over the mail, and then in my peripheral vision caught the fluttering outside at the feeder. It was empty as I knew it would be, and needed it's usual afternoon fill-in a few minutes I vaguely planned. At first look I passed the fluttering and flapping wings by and looked back to the mail. But the fluttering continued and I realized something wasn't right. Looking again I could see it was a chickadee, and my next thought was it must be injured. What to do? Getting outside and to the feeder, I realized the bird had managed to get it's head stuck inside the tube feeder. And it was in a near panic state, trying to free itself. This is a Duncraft tube feeder with the anti-squirrel cage around it. Looking close I could see the bird had stuck it's head straight in to the bottom hole (looking for that last seed) and then flexed it's head downward. The bird was trying to back out of the feeder, unable to figure out it had to first lift it's own head back to the position it was in when it stuck it's head in there. The head-beak length was way too long to get back out of the hole. I have no idea how long the bird was stuck before I arrived home.
So, what to do? You can't get your hands in there past the cage wire. Not without getting the tools out and starting to take the feeder apart. I took the feeder off the pole, and at first the chickadee didn't even realize I was there at all. It couldn't see me. But it figured it out after a minute and began to unhappily call out, struggling to free itself. About the only thing I could think of at first was to try and push its head forward, using a pencil eraser, as I could see, and get access to, the underside of the beak of the stuck bird. But then it dawned on me that perhaps by tipping the whole feeder over, 90 d trees on to the side, perhaps the orientation of the bird would change enough, to cause it to do what it needed to do, to be able to back out of the hole. So I tipped the feeder over, leaving it still and unmoving, on a bench seat. The chickadee stopped it's struggle, in a new position. I could see that it was lifting its head in there, but after 2-3 minutes it was still stuck, so I decided to tip it over just a little more, starting to put the bird slightly more toward the upside down position. I used a block of wood to keep the round cage from rolling off the bench seat, and then backed off. This time, the chickadee straightened it's head enough, and it immediately succeeded in getting it's head out of the hole. Yay! I love chickadees, they are my favorite feeder friends of all! I would NOT have been happy if this ended any other way. The bird flew to a nearby lilac and rested, it was obviously stressed and tired out. When the freshly filled feeder was hung up again a minute later, it didn't take too long for the same bird to come back to the feeder for seed (we were watching it)
I am not sure what the moral is here. This morning as I type, I still like my Duncraft feeder and have faith in it, but I now also know it might not be as "safe" as I assumed it was. One time, freak accident? Or something that could happen again? I doubt I am the first person who has had a welcomed-friend get trapped like this in a tube feeder, and my first guess is that the same thing could also happen in the Droll-Yankee version. So I am posting this, not with any agenda, just to let you all know it happened.

Subject: [NHBirds] New arrivals - yellowlegs, etc.
Zeke Cornell and I birded some of the coastal area and Concord
(thanks, Debbie) for some new spring arrivals. Most have been reported
by others but I think the yellowlegs are new.


Greater Yellowlegs - 4 at Chapman's Landing, Stratham

Osprey - 2 at Chapman's

American Kestrel - 14 at Pease Tradeport, total from both ends of the
runways

Swamp Sparrow - 2 at Borthwick Ave. marsh, Portsmouth

Wilson's Snipe - 4 at Moore fields in Durham, visible from the parking
area for Tecees Farm stand

Ring-necked Duck - 190 on Northwood Lake

Pied-billed Grebe - 1 on Horseshoe Pond in addition to the Snow Goose
and Great Egret Debbie LaValley reported.

There's still a huge flock of blackbirds (3,000+-) at Great Bay Farm,
mostly grackles, but we could find nothing unusual.

Hello, the Snowy Owl with the transmitter is from Boston I believe as there
was a post previously and I also have a picture of her. She was relocated
to this area for safety reasons. I saw her in Salisbury twice. I'm glad
she is doing ok because I hadn't seen her since around February. They will
be leaving us soon unfortunately but also I am happy so they can not be
bothered by the people any longer. Tammy

Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (Snowy Owls, Great Egrets, etc.)
Not a lot to report today on the coast....but a bit.

The seemingly endless winter continued today as I brushed some snow off
my car this morning.  And the temperatures struggled (again) and never
got out of the 40's.  Still lots of patches of snow here and there in
shaded areas.  Cold temperatures and winds kept us mostly in the car
this morning.  Also....the coastal damage from the winter storms
continues to be evident as it will take some time to patch things up as
rocks are strewn all over the place still.  Other damage includes a
couple of homes along Seabrook beach which are getting perilously close
to the ocean's wrath and there is extensive damage to the parking area
at Bicentennial Park.  And there are now "cliffs" in the Beach Grass
dunes at Hampton Beach SP.  An interesting geographic feature.

Highlights from this morning:

Great Egret - 20 (!).  A very high count for the date.  All together in
Seabrook marsh near wastewater treatment plant
Great Blue Heron - 9 total.
Northern Shoveler - 4 (3 male and 1 female) in Meadow Pond in Hampton
Gadwall - 2 (male and female) in Meadow Pond in Hampton
American Wigeon - 2 (male and female) in Eel Pond in Rye.
Green-winged Teal - 7 IN OCEAN off Seabrook Beach and 2 on Eel Pond. 
Amazingly ZERO in Meadow Pond.
Lesser Scaup - 2 (male and female) in Eel Pond in Rye.
Osprey - 2 (didn't search too hard for birds in Hampton/Seabrook area)
SNOWY OWL - 2 lingering birds on rooftops.  One in Seabrook and one in
Hampton.  The one in Hampton appeared to HAVE A TRANSMITTER ON IT.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/40406121405/in/dateposted/
Fish Crow - 8.  This species is showing no signs of slowing down its
northward expansion in the state.  It is now almost the default crow in
areas of the coast!
Savannah Sparrow - 1 at Ragged Neck in Rye.
"Ipswich" Savannah Sparrow - 1 lingering bird continues at Ragged Neck
in Rye with regular Savannah.

Notable misses:

Glaucous Gull - 0.  It appears that the adult Glaucous Gull in Seabrook
has left for its summer grounds since last weekend.
Piping Plover - 0.  I walked Hampton Beach, but couldn't see any. Also a
quick scan in Seabrook, but no luck.

LOST PET!! Please help:

I live in Manchester on Cedar St between Union and Pine.

After searching for my cockatiel everywhere imaginable inside my apartment,
I am led to believe that he somehow got out of the apartment yesterday.

His name is Pikachu, and he may respond if you say his name in a soft voice.
He is 7 months old but he is a good flyer nonetheless. He is very shy but
knows the “step up” command, which means he will step up onto your finger if
you press it against his chest. However, he will not let you pet him.

Cockatiels are not meant to be outside in these temperatures. He is probably
very cold, scared and confused.

I am absolutely heartbroken as this is my baby. If people in the Manchester
area could please keep an eye out for him, I would really appreciate any
information anyone has. Even if you see a yellow bird with bright orange
cheeks and you don’t feel comfortable approaching him, please contact me
with the location you see him in!

Any information can be sent to me via Facebook messenger or you can
text/call my google phone number at 508-505-4834.

I am offering a reward to anyone who helps me find him. Please share this
and help spread the word! Thank you

This morning at Chapman's Landing I was able to watch an adult Bald
Eagle being harried by two very angry Osprey. I also stopped at
Pease, where I had a pair of Bluebirds and at least one Kestrel. I
tried for the Oystercatchers at Odiorne Point, but missed them.

At Front Park in Auburn this morning, I had a Common Loon, a pair of
Canada geese, and a pair of Mallards. There's also a Fish Crow
hanging around there; it's been there for at least a week.

I saw a Carolina Wren next to my house today looking for food
in the edge of the woods next to my front lawn.


Nice treat to see this bubbly little bird.


Many Robins today in Derry, NH.


There was an Eagle way up in the sky over Derry, NH.
Too far away to ID but most likely a Bald Eagle.

Despite the wind I went over to Horseshoe Pond on a whim and was rewarded! A male and female green-winged teal, a peregrine falcon (making a dive at the tree swallows), and a curious osprey surveying the pond, flying only about 20-30 feet off the ground. I got better looks at it than I ever have an osprey. The ducks were unperturbed. These are all new species for me for this location! Spring has already been very exciting.-Molly JacobsonMerrimack

Monday evening a flock of eight calling Fish Crows flew over me at West Locke Road in Concord. This is slightly larger than my previous personal high (six) for the area in the spring. The only other noteworthy "sighting" were calling Wood Frogs.

I was driving around north Newport earlier today looking for spring Birds. Many of you know this area better as the Great Gray Owl hangout from last March. At around 11:20 this morning I found an adult NORTHERN SHRIKE hunting in the overgrown fields just north of the Newport High School athletic fields along Route 10.

Other takeaways included an American Kestrel outside Parlin Airfield and two Eastern Phoebes in the same field as the Shrike. Both birds are personal first-of-the-year arrivals.

From: Alfred Maley <alfredmaley...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Birding Notes From Old Iberia: Other Diurnal Migrants - Swallows, Swifts and Bee-eaters
The storks and raptors migrating across the Strait of Gibraltar garner most
of the attention, but in terms of numbers they are probably easily eclipsed
by the swallows, swifts and bee-eaters that also migrate during the daytime.

Perhaps it’s because these migrants follow the west coast of Africa instead
of defying the Sahara, but more swallows and swifts are noted crossing the
Strait rather than the open waters of the Mediterranean. The first to
arrive, in early March, are the Barn Swallows. They are followed quickly by
House Martins and then Bank Swallows. The last to arrive, by the end of
March, is the attractive Red-rumped Swallow, whose odd tail feathers remind
me of an earwig. The swallows are all headed in a northeast direction.

The swifts arrive in mid March; 99% of which are the local Palid Swifts,
but with the odd Alpine Swift if you look hard enough. The suspiciously
similar Common Swift arrives in April, and is destined more for the
northern European countries.

Both swallows and swifts fly low and are quite noticeable on cloudy, misty
days when few other birds are migrating. On days with high clouds you can
pick them out up high with the raptors. On days with clear blue skies, you
can’t see a one, but they’re (way) up there!

The first of April sees the arrival of the Bee-eaters, a noisy migrant that
always seem to like to be in flocks of about twenty individuals, perhaps
so they can hear each other’s conversation or warnings about Peregrines.
They are very obvious and the call is known to all - los abejarucos. Many
Spanish words (especially bird names) that begin with the letter ‘a’ are
Arabic in origin. This is one of them.

Meanwhile, during the nights, the other migrants have started to arrive:
Nightingale, Cuckoo, Woodchat Shrike and, today, Bonelli’s Warbler. By the
way, the Nightingale’s song can’t hold a candle to that of a Hermit Thrush,
but it does in fact sing at night.

Subject: [NHBirds] a round about way to return home from Lebanon
Appointments took me to Lebanon today. Finished by noon and believing the day would stay dry and clear until evening, decided to try the Hinsdale Setbacks. Rain started falling lightly as I arrived, a cold wind blew. Aside from many Common Mergansers and numerous Bald Eagles, I found little new and different (they were smarter-hiding out the cold elsewhere).

So ‘on my way back’ I hoped to find the American Bittern in Keene. By the time I arrived it was snowing lightly. Being unfamiliar with this spot, could hardly find a place where any water birds might land (advice welcome).

From there I headed in search of the Evening Grosbeaks (which are being sorely missed north of the Whites this year). As well described by Sam Jaffee, they were in the wetlands (deep) across from the cabin. No feeders were up at the house. It was getting wetting and colder by the minute , and the daylight was dropping. But “since I was in the area” took my 3rd or 4th shot at the Redheaded Woodpecker.
The snow started to let up. Rain persisted, so after wandering around in search I took cover in the car . As described the bird has had a habit of showing up in the late afternoon and sure enough it did while I was warmly ensconsed in my car.

Subject: [NHBirds] Eastern Meadowlark at Woodmont, Hollis
Went down to Woodmont Orchard to try and relocate the snipe seen there yesterday, with no luck. It looks like all of the apple trees are being cut down, and workers were there blocking some of the paths and creating a massive debris pile. However, after walking where I could, I was able to stop down at one of the pulloffs and access one of the lower fields, albeit during the rain. There was a ton of activity there, including an eastern meadowlark in the field, vocalizing and flying around. I certainly wasn't expecting that!  Also two kestrels, a phoebe, and I heard a broad-winged hawk call several times as well, though I couldn't see it through the trees. Too many song sparrows to count. I never know what I'll find there, make it more fun!

Subject: [NHBirds] Good Weekend for Birds: Coast, Jackson, Nashua
On the 30th Michael and I headed up to Jackson for a last weekend of skiing, via the coast hoping to see the blue winged teal (no luck) and lousy weather, but we had a fabulous view of a snowy hiding in plain site well above the marsh during the blue moon flood tide.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44087435 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44087435>

During the weekend we had persistent siskin, crossbills (white winged and red), purple finches and even a couple of turkey vultures.

A quick trip to Sherman Farm on Saturday proved quite successful with many snow geese in the corn fields with Canada geese, wasn’t until they put up and flew that we realized there were 51! (including one blue morph). As they circled overhead also ran into Bob Crowley who had also been watching the spectacle. Nice to see other old friends enjoying the beautiful day and along with the weather our first of year tree swallow swooped over the field. (combined list compliments of Bob Crowley, with my photos added)

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44181543 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44181543>

Today back in Nashua after the snow stopped headed over to Woodmont (never disappoints). 2 American Kestrel, in the upper fields and 2 Wilson’s snipe in the lower areas, (also killdeer) . On the way home, an Eastern Screech.

Yesterday (after I saw the pheasant) I went to Montague mass for the third

them). Oddly they did not fly off until I crossed the road o give them more
room. I also saw a FoY phoebe their.

Hi NH Birders,

At the end of April, the Ware River Nature Club is convening a one-day conference focusing on avian aerial insectivores. Details are below. Please share the information with anyone who might be interested. Both Becky Suomala and I from NH Audubon are presenting. For interested folks in southern NH, this is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the issues facing this declining group of birds.

Maybe see some NH folks there!

Pam Hunt
Avian Conservation Biologist
NH Audubon


Our Aerial Insectivorous Birds: Current Conservation Issues
Saturday April 28, 2018 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
Harvard Forest, Petersham
$35 Members*/ $45 Non-members
Lunch is included

The guild of northeastern avian insectivores-birds that specialize in feeding on flying insects-includes Whip-poor-wills, Common Nighthawks, Chimney Swifts, several species of swallows and flycatchers, and Purple Martins. Most of these species are experiencing dramatic population declines and range contraction. The magnitude of the declines over the past
25 years has been alarming. For that reason the plight of aerial insectivores
is gaining increased attention among biologists in New England.
This conference will address the ecology and current status of many of these species, particularly in New England; present theories regarding population decline; summarize recent research strategies and findings; and explore citizen science opportunities.

*Ware River Nature Club members
(Annual membership dues are $15)


Registration is open! See:

Subject: [NHBirds] Easter birding - several nice FOYs
I spent some time birding this morning, and scored several very nice sightings:

At Pease Tradeport, along the runway there were several (at least 3,
maybe 4) American Kestrels. First of year for me.

Also at Pease, one of the Osprey nests in the old ammo storage area
had two Ospreys on it. Also FOY for me.

And again at Pease, along the Peverly Ponds boardwalk trail I counted
at least 3 Brown Creepers. To see one of these is noteworthy for me;
I don't think I've ever seen three in a single day.

On the coast, the marsh inland from Wallis Sands beach produced two
Great Egrets.

At Pulpit Rocks there was a sea-duck whose identity I'm not sure
of. The size and color said "female eider," but it seemed subtly
wrong for a female Common Eider. In particular the head, which had a
pronounced 'stop' at the base of the bill, rather than the smooth
bill-to-forehead shape of a Common Eider. And the head was cinnamon
colored, a markedly different color from the body, unlike the Common
Eiders I'm used to seeing where the whole body is a nondescript
brown. I'm not at all sure, but I wonder if I was looking at a
female King Eider.

And off Ragged Neck, there was a Common Loon in full breeding plumage.

For the last two weeks, I have been driving on E.Thetford Road, watching the adjacent, parallel power lines, in hopes of seeing an American kestrel. There is a pair that annually nests in a nearby barn. The sighting of a kestrel at this locale is a sure harbinger of spring.

Today, I was pleased to see an American Kestrel on the utility wire traditional perch. Hope springs eternal!

Subject: [NHBirds] Durham firsts on the first
Birders,

There were some good birds around town today in my brief forays. At the Surrey Lane Marsh, 2 Common Mergs and 30 Ring-necked Ducks were present--first Common Mergs for the spot on eBird. At the Oyster River Forest in the evening I picked up my first phoebe and snipe of the year, as well as the first Woodcock for the preserve, pushing the list there up to a modest 130. Can 200 be far behind? yes.

Subject: [NHBirds] Mystery Bird - Tufted Titmouse, a proper recording
Hi all!I hit it lucky today at Horseshoe Pond. The 'mystery bird' that we determined is a tufted titmouse showed itself at last, to confirm its identity, and I was able to get a good recording of its atypical 'towhee-like' vocalization!https://www.xeno-canto.org/408639

I also made an account on xeno-canto. I don't have any special equipment for recording but I hope to contribute any interesting or strange bird songs in the future to the best of my limited ability. 
Thanks again to everyone who helped me figure out that bird's ID. It's all a learning process! And I hope uploading that recording can help someone else recognize that unusual titmouse song if they hear it.

Subject: RE: [NHBirds] Golden Eagle in Franconia Notch
A bit more on the immature-plumage golden eagle seen by me on 3/31 ...

Seen with binoculars in front of namesake Eagle Cliff from southbound I-93 pull-off by Profile Lake.
First noticed a large shadow crossing the rock face, which incidentally was a golden eagle nest site in the late 1800s.
Lighting was excellent with sun reflecting off snow below and lighting up ventral side of eagle.
With binocs, circling bird showed smallish head, golden nape, comma marks on underwings, and broad white area at base of tail.
Stopped circling and began flying directly north along ridgetop when relatively tiny peregrine falcon began pursuit. Soon joined in chase by a common raven.
Eagle out of sight beyond Eaglet Spire about a minute later. Peregrine returned to Eagle Cliff.

Thanks to Phil Brown for posting for me yesterday.

Kathi and I walked to Cherry Pond in Jefferson for Easter Sunrise. The rail trail from Airport Road was icy and we used microspikes on our walk. Snow cover is still 90 percent plus in the woods. Cherry Pond is fully ice covered except for a tiny open spot at the outlet. We watched an otter feed on fresh water mussels. Just a dozen species of birds including an early Winter Wren near the trailhead as we were coming out. Purple finches were singing from trees along the way and we estimated 24 of them. We had a big influx of robins last night and we saw an easy 60 plus at the Airport fields which are largely snow free and also along the trail. Five Canada geese were sitting on the ice at Cherry Pond. We also saw a two year old moose at Waumbek Junction that looked healthy. We were hoping to see the Easter Snowshoe Hare Bunny but did not find one. As for the sunrise, the appointed time came and went without any sun. A cold front brought in a bank of clouds and gusty winds. It was just nice to get out in the early morning hours.

Back to top NH Audubon Spring Pelagic Birding Trip
| Jon Woolf <jsw...>: Mar 31 12:09PM -0400

Listfolk,
 
The thermometer may still be shivering, but the birds say spring is coming. So it must be time to start thinking about NH Audubon's spring Pelagic Birding Expedition. How the time flies.... 2018 marks ten years we've been doing these trips. This year we're going back to Memorial Day as the date; this year, that's Monday, May 28th. Otherwise, the plan is pretty much the same as in previous years:
 
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 28th (Memorial Day).
 
WHERE: Meet dockside at Rye Harbor at 7:30AM for an 8:00AM departure.
 
WHAT TO BRING: Binoculars, of course. A lunch if you want to. A digital camera if you have one -- these trips often produce excellent photo opportunities for both whales and birds. 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 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. Last year 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 50 so that the boat doesn't get too crowded. Cost is $70 for NH Audubon members, $90 for non-members. Contact Massabesic Audubon Center (phone 603-668-2045, email <mac...>) to sign up. Contact either MAC or me with any questions you might have. Please be certain that you leave a phone number or email address where you can be contacted on Sunday May 27th, in case we have to cancel due to weather. There is no rain date; we go on the 28th, or not at all.
 
To go with the trip, I will be holding a 1-hour workshop at Massabesic Center on Saturday May 26th, 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.
 
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! :-)

| Jon Woolf <jsw...>: Mar 30 09:01PM -0400

I went out birding for a while today, just wherever I felt like
stopping. Massabesic Audubon Center, Chapman's Landing, Great Bay
Discovery Center, Route 1A along the coast... There was nothing
spectacular, and the intermittent rain didn't help, but I got a few
nice sightings:
 
Lake Massabesic had a couple of Common Mergansers visible from the
road past Front Park. Massabesic Audubon Center had Song Sparrows
mixed in with the other feeder birds, and a mixed flock of Starlings,
Red-winged Blackbirds, and Common Grackles in the middle
field. There were swarms of juncos everywhere, a Bluebird or two,
some Robins, and I heard and saw a Red-bellied Woodpecker.
 
The osprey/eagle nest at Chapman's Landing had no visible activity,
so maybe the eagles that tried to nest there last year didn't come
back. Or maybe there was something there, just hunkered down because
of the miserable cold seeping rain. I did get some Red-winged
Blackbirds and a Mockingbird there, though.
 
At Great Bay Discovery Center, there were a bunch of ducks on the
bay: at least two Green-winged Teal, several Common Mergansers, some
Mallards, some Black Ducks, and a great many ducks that I identified
as male Greater Scaup, because they had blazing white sides - not
gray - and no sign of the white shoulder mark that distinguishes
Ring-necked Ducks.
 
I checked briefly at Sunset Farm, and found an enormous flock of
blackbirds - Red-wings, Grackles, possibly other species. Best guess
somewhere between 500 and 1000.
 
The tide was very high along Route 1A, but I got a few interesting
things here and there: Canada Geese at Fairhill salt marsh, Great
Cormorants on the rocks at Odiorne Point, Song Sparrows at Ragged
Neck. The best bird of the day was also at Ragged Neck: 30+ Purple
Sandpipers on the rocks at the tip of the peninsula. Been a while
since I saw any of those little guys.
 
Not a great day, but not a bad one either. At least I have _some_
evidence that spring is coming...

Back to top Black Scoter - Newport
| <jacksonwrxt89...>: Mar 30 05:54PM -0400

I stumbled upon an adult male Black Scoter in the Sugar River in Newport this afternoon. It was found along Route 11 just upstream from the dam behind Stone Eagle Firearms. A nice and unexpected treat as I usually find local migrant Scoters only on the large lakes and ponds which are still iced in. It’s my first Scoter in the Sugar River period.

Subject: [NHBirds] tree swallows and a possible Black Vulture, 3/31
Birders,

This evening about 6:30 there was a large swarm of tree swallows on the Salmon Falls River between Rollinsford and South Berwick--well over 150, but since they went around a bend in the river it was hard to see the extent of the flock.


Earlier in the evening, I had a possible Black Vulture in Somersworth near Green and Indigo Hill Road. I just saw it briefly at a distance, but the bird had an odd, short-tailed, deep wingbeat silhouette. I searched the area by car but couldn't find anything.

Subject: [NHBirds] Sullivan County Spring Birding
This morning I went down to Fall Mountain in Walpole in hopes of getting my first official state BLACK VULTURE. Unfortunately, after 45 minutes of waiting I finally gave up and moved on to the Charlestown WTP. While walking around the facility I heard some Ravens high up overhead and saw three birds in the sky. To my delight one of the Ravens wasn’t a Raven at all but a BLACK VULTURE. The Ravens mobbed the Vulture as it gained altitude and eventually left it alone. I last saw the bird moving north before I lost sight of it. The same bird that’s been seen down in Walpole?

We spent most of the day exploring the coast from Portsmouth to Hampton Beach State Park and saw 1 distant adult Bald Eagle and 4 robins at Wentworth Mansion and one unidentified duck species at Rye Harbor.

After all that driving, we came home to find first-of-the-year return of Hooded Mergansers, Wood Ducks, one Mallard pair and one beautiful Great Blue in the pond behind our house.

From: Jon Woolf <jsw...>
Subject: [NHBirds] NH Audubon Spring Pelagic Birding Trip
Listfolk,

The thermometer may still be shivering, but the birds say spring is
coming. So it must be time to start thinking about NH Audubon's
spring Pelagic Birding Expedition. How the time flies.... 2018 marks
ten years we've been doing these trips. This year we're going back to
Memorial Day as the date; this year, that's Monday, May 28th.
Otherwise, the plan is pretty much the same as in previous years:

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 28th (Memorial Day).

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

WHAT TO BRING: Binoculars, of course. A lunch if you want to. A
digital camera if you have one -- these trips often produce excellent
photo opportunities for both whales and birds. 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 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. Last year 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 50
so that the boat doesn't get too crowded. Cost is $70 for NH Audubon
members, $90 for non-members. Contact Massabesic Audubon Center
(phone 603-668-2045, email <mac...>) to sign up. Contact
either MAC or me with any questions you might have. Please be certain
that you leave a phone number or email address where you can be
contacted on Sunday May 27th, in case we have to cancel due to
weather. There is no rain date; we go on the 28th, or not at all.

To go with the trip, I will be holding a 1-hour workshop at
Massabesic Center on Saturday May 26th, 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.

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! :-)

Subject: [NHBirds] Looking for spring, 3/30
I went out birding for a while today, just wherever I felt like
stopping. Massabesic Audubon Center, Chapman's Landing, Great Bay
Discovery Center, Route 1A along the coast... There was nothing
spectacular, and the intermittent rain didn't help, but I got a few
nice sightings:

Lake Massabesic had a couple of Common Mergansers visible from the
road past Front Park. Massabesic Audubon Center had Song Sparrows
mixed in with the other feeder birds, and a mixed flock of Starlings,
Red-winged Blackbirds, and Common Grackles in the middle
field. There were swarms of juncos everywhere, a Bluebird or two,
some Robins, and I heard and saw a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

The osprey/eagle nest at Chapman's Landing had no visible activity,
so maybe the eagles that tried to nest there last year didn't come
back. Or maybe there was something there, just hunkered down because
of the miserable cold seeping rain. I did get some Red-winged
Blackbirds and a Mockingbird there, though.

At Great Bay Discovery Center, there were a bunch of ducks on the
bay: at least two Green-winged Teal, several Common Mergansers, some
Mallards, some Black Ducks, and a great many ducks that I identified
as male Greater Scaup, because they had blazing white sides - not
gray - and no sign of the white shoulder mark that distinguishes
Ring-necked Ducks.

I checked briefly at Sunset Farm, and found an enormous flock of
blackbirds - Red-wings, Grackles, possibly other species. Best guess
somewhere between 500 and 1000.

The tide was very high along Route 1A, but I got a few interesting
things here and there: Canada Geese at Fairhill salt marsh, Great
Cormorants on the rocks at Odiorne Point, Song Sparrows at Ragged
Neck. The best bird of the day was also at Ragged Neck: 30+ Purple
Sandpipers on the rocks at the tip of the peninsula. Been a while
since I saw any of those little guys.

Not a great day, but not a bad one either. At least I have _some_
evidence that spring is coming...

Observed a flock of large birds in the hemlock tree bordering the woods at the back of our property.  Looked like jays without their crests.  With binoculars, I saw that they were certainly bluejays.  
Looked it up and found that when in a mutally supportive foraging flock, jays keep their crests down.  Interesting.

From: Dana Duxbury-Fox <danafox...>
Subject: [NHBirds] Crow Patrol March 28 and 27 Lawrence MA
March 28th - Bob and I arrived home from a meeting in Wolfeboro, NH in time
for crow patrol. What will they do next? Last night we arrived an hour
before sunset (a little after 6 PM) and there were very few crows to be seen
from the boathouse on Eaton St. at the crow bar and a few going in to the
southside to the west of us. We followed them to the industrial park and saw
12 Robins, 25 Grackles, a Cowbird, Red-winged Blackbird and a couple of
Juncos from Haffner's. A few crows were peeling off the back. Going to the
other side of the Merrimack River to stage??????

Back to the boathouse a Lesser Black-backed Gull landed briefly on the
river. It was a warm sunny evening and a beautiful spot to be observing the
crows. Much to our surprise - THEY WERE STAGING ON THE OTHER NORTH SIDE OF
THE RIVER. They perched high in the leafless trees lining the river from the
crow bar east some way. Most of those trees stood higher than the ones
behind them so the birds were silhouetted against the sky. Vast numbers kept
pouring in from the east and some from the west. All staged to the west of
their roosting area the past few nights. Bob got a chance to really get a
good count and there were over 4000 birds by sunset. At one point, a great
number of them became very noisy (as the seem to do when they are going to
lift up and swirl around) and lifted up. The majority of them circled back
into the same trees but two groups broke off - one going west to the south
side and one going east of us to the south side. Otherwise they were quite
settled down last night. Eventually both of those groups returned to the
northside. The west group all seemed to drop down to the river's surface
trying to catch something from the surface of the water. Too far away to
tell what. It was beautiful with the colorful sky reflected in the river and
thrilling watching the numbers grow and grow and more trees being occupied
by the incoming crows that seem to be arriving later than usual.

At about a half hour after sunset 7:30 PM, the noise level rose again and a
large group of crows rose from the middle of the group and flew over others
to the east of them to the trees behind the church were they roosted since
Sunday . Slowly, the others all followed suit. The roosting crows roosted
far more densely that the staging crows. There was a dramatic difference.

Another night on crow patrol - another fascinating memory to savor in the
months ahead.



March 27th - It was much cooler and cloudy. The crows roosted to the east
of Industrial Way and took off at 7:07 PM to roost. They flew away from us
and from the boathouse we saw them headed for the church. On the other side
of the river, they were scattered further west than the past two nights.
Were there more of them???



Wish you were there to enjoy the spectacle. They may be just crows but they
are spectacular crows!

Dana



North Andover, MA

This morning I headed out on the trail and there was no osprey to be seen. Coming back at 8:15 am there was one on the nest and then it flew over to a telephone poll. I have been checking daily so it seems like it just arrived.

If anyone is interested in some pictures of the newly welcomed ABA Hawaii birds there are some pictures from our recent trip at https://flic.kr/s/aHsmhHCu2F

Subject: [NHBirds] Turkey Vultures

The dead tree behind out house has again become a Turkey Vulture roost. There are currently 35 vultures in the tree. This has happened the last several years during spring migration. Pretty impressive sight to see that many huge birds up close. Monday one of them swooped down and flew by at eye level right outside my windows. All I can say is WOW!

So far I haven't see any Black Vultures in the group

Subject: [NHBirds] Sunday, March 25 Epping crows and peregrine falcon
This past Sunday, March 25, I went to the Epping Conservation Area behind Lowe’s. I was surprised to see five American crows feasting on staghorn sumac fruits. There were also about 30 American robins eating the sumac as well. The crows flew to the roof of Lowe’s and began alarm calling, then flew away.

I turned to look around and saw a falcon flying over the pond and towards me. The bird flew back to the direction it came from and landed on the water tower. I believe this is my first peregrine falcon for my town. The peregrine looked interested when a mourning dove began cooing and even more interested at the sound of a duck calling.

Here are a couple digiscoped videos and photos of the crow and peregrine:

Subject: [NHBirds] Boreal Chickadees at Bretton Woods
While xc skiing at Bretton Woods I saw two boreal chickadees along the Dartmouth Brook Trail and heard another one on the Split Rock Trail. This is good habitat for boreal chickadees with a lot of young red spruce stands. Other birds included approximately 20 purple finches, 30 pine siskins, 2 white-winged crossbills, several robins and black-capped chickadees. Still plenty of snow in the woods and great xc skiing but Bretton Woods Touring Center is closing for the season on April 1.

Subject: [NHBirds] Crow Patrol Many Crows have moved on
Last night they staged in Lawrence on the SOUTH side of the Merrimack River
off of Fallon St. to the east of the Eaton St. boathouse and roosted on the
NORTH side of the river off of Water St. behind the Riverside Church -
fitting isn't it at Easter time?? On Sunday night they staged behind the New
Balance Distribution building off of Industrial Way in Lawrence and also
roosted behind the church. They are still fun to watch if you haven't seen
them yet.



They are now roosting a mile from their original roosting spot (behind the
New Balance FACTORY along the Merrimack in a narrow row of trees)!! The
furthest they got from the original spot was 2.97 miles in Methuen to the
west of the cemetery. Will they finally get back there????



This past week has shown a tremendous change in the number of crows coming
into the Greater Lawrence Winter Crow Roost. Our maximum number was 16,000
which we counted when they were in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in
January where they were easier to count. They have been more difficult to
count during their staging south of the Merrimack River in the
Andover/Lawrence industrial Park off of River/Andover St. but we have had a
few nights when we counted 12,000+



Last night there were 1600+ . Are these just the local crows and were the
others all migrants? Has anyone seen flocks of crows migrating north in New
Hampshire, Maine or Vermont? My local crows are not staying on territory yet
but none of the crows we saw this winter are tagged - YET - so it is hard
to know.



We are looking for a researcher who would like to study the roost next year.
Tagging the crows is expensive as you need to buy the tags, pay to download
the data and then analyze it. We have identified an experienced organization
that will capture and tag them. We will keep you posted on our plans and
how you might be able to help. So much to learn!



Any observations that you had and want to share are appreciated.

Subject: [NHBirds] Merlins, Scaup, Bufflehead, etc.
While checking on Eagles this morning in Moultonborough, I heard a pair of
Merlins vocalizing at Long Island Beach. At my house in Ashland I had a
flyover Merlin and a Red Crossbill.

At Lake Winnisquam South:
Lesser Scaup -- 1
Bufflehead -- 1
Common Goldeneye -- 4
Ring-necked Duck -- 3

I've confirmed incubation at four Lakes Region Bald Eagle nests in the last
week. Another pair looks like it failed already (likely laid just before
one of the big snow storms) and two other pairs hadn't laid as of yesterday.

Yesterday at Waukewan Inlet:
Black Ducks - 21
Hooded Merganser - 7
