Subject: [NHBirds] NH Coast (Stilt Sandpiper, Tricolored Heron, migrating dowitchers)
The coast is open in many spots, but is still frustratingly inaccessible
in the numerous parking and pull-off locations along Rt. 1A.

Jane and I hit the coast in hopes of finding a storm blown bird or two
with Tropical Storm Fay.  No luck on that, but we did find a few
interesting birds
as we transition into mid-summer and the start of southbound migration.

STILT SANDPIPER - 1 adult in Hampton salt marsh.  Still with much of its
breeding plumage.  An uncommon bird in NH, this is also a relatively
early date.  My only earlier record was from July 9, 2017.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/50100771108/in/photostream/lightbox/

TRICOLORED HERON - 1 in Hampton salt marsh behind Little Jack's. First
spotted by Jane.  Always a treat to see one in NH.  I didn't get a
decent photo unfortunately.

SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER - 207 migrating in 12 flocks heading south. Many
of these from Great Boar's Head looking offshore.  The pace of shorebird
migration is now starting
to increase rapidly.  The adult shorebirds migrate first in July and
early August.  After that the juveniles arrive and dominate the scene.

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Ebird for beginners workshop no sighting
Thanks, MB, for sharing the link to NHBirds! While I am certainly less
knowledgeable about eBird than others, I do spend a significant amount of
time using the app and website. I enjoyed sharing my eBird knowledge with
others during the Harris Center workshop. To iterate the previous email,
the workshop and recorded video are primarily geared towards eBird
beginners (brand new and novice users) and it covers the app and website
portions of eBird.

Others may be interested in this excellent short (5-min) video that
summarizes how to use the eBird app
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvYYeDd05TQ>. I also highly recommend
taking Bird Academy's free online eBird Essentials
<https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/product/ebird-essentials/> course, which
takes only a few hours to complete.

Subject: [NHBirds] Ebird for beginners workshop no sighting
For everyone who missed the free workshop put on by the Harris Center and an expert from Antioch University in New Hampshire, on ebird for beginners, they have now put the video of the workshop up on YouTube. Here is the link for anyone who is still interested in learning about some of the basics of the eBird app versus the eBird website, and how to do everything from record your sightings to look up particular birds in a particular area or hotspots in a particular area. I realize many may already be expert in this, but for those who still found it confusing like myself, I thought this was an informative Workshop. Especially in the second hour.

Subject: [NHBirds] A Real “Show-off”!
The Great Gray Owl is an elusive bird that is not easy to find, despite its size. They generally do not call attention to themselves and tend to avoid areas with people. However, such was not the case in the late winter of 2017, when a Great Gray spent over a month in Newport, NH showing off for birders and non-birders alike with surprising displays at close-range. Read all about the unusual antics of this visitor and enjoy some terrific photos from its visit as well, in the Spring 2017 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V36%20N1%20Spring%202017%20web.pdf (“Enjoying the Great Gray Owl Visit” begins on page 25).
Other articles in this issue include: Birding Orford - A Habitat-rich Town in the Upper Valley; Bird-glass Collisions; photos and field notes from the 2017 spring season and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!
New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.

Subject: [NHBirds] Yellow-billed Loon - NOT!!
The previously reported Yellow-billed Loon appears to NOT BE A
YELLOW-BILLED LOON, but appears to be an odd looking Common Loon.

There are a few things that make this a Common Loon:

1) The overall size and shape of the bill.  A Yellow-billed Loon should
show a HUGE bill, with a sharp angle on the lower mandible that appears
up-turned bill as if looking to the sky.  The subject loon has a bill
held more level and the size and angles are well within the range of a
Common Loon.

2) The color of the bill.  The subject bird appears to have a yellowish
bill, but it is not the brilliant ivory yellow color of a Yellow-billed
Loon.  The yellow on the subject bird is a bit more gray-yellow.

3) The white collar markings are too finely marked and numerous.
According to the "Birds of the World"...."white lines in mid-neck patch
should be less than 12 for Yellow-billed Loon and greater than 12 in
Common Loon.  The subject bird shows many narrow black and white stripes
consistent with Common Loon.

4) The back pattern.  The back pattern of a Yellow-billed Loon should be
with larger white checkering patches on back.  The subject bird is
darker with smaller white checker pattern, typical for Common Loon.

The subject bird, is strange, but perhaps not unique.  A similar bird
was photographed in Maine several years ago and Andrea Robbins has seen
birds very similar to this as well.

The "rampotheca" is the horny sheath of the bill in the Common Loon. 
This sheath wears down and sheds and is regrown.  The impact of these
changes can change the appearance of the bill, particularly depending on
the lighting and angle of lighting.

Anyone who relocates this bird, it would be great to get better photos
to better understand the color pattern of the bill in different lighting.

Thanks to Ben Griffith, Louis Bevier, and Doug Hitchcox for weighing in
and clarifying the situation.

The loon was photographed Monday evening (7/6/20) around 7:00 pm at the mid to north end of Newfound Lake by Pasquanney Bay. There are multiple excellent photos.

The observer checked yesterday morning and last night but did not see the bird. However, Newfound is a large lake and the bird could move around.

Subject: [NHBirds] Black-backed Woodpeckers and Fox Sparrows
Last night (Weds.) around 9 pm, I received a call from a hometown acquaintance who was in NH and wanted me hike with him today to Mt. Jackson. For some strange reason ;>) there were no commitments on my calendar so I agreed to go. Well, did it turn out to be a great birding morning, another Boreal Bonanza even topping the one I had this past Saturday on Mt. Tremont.

The first highlight occurred shortly below the summit of Mt. Jackson where I heard a Fox Sparrow with its sweet song. Then, on top of Mt. Jackson, there was a Fox Sparrow singing and showing itself. The sun was on it and the coloring was superb! The only issue was, were there two birds or had the first bird moved up to the peak—a minor problem! Then, about 1.2 miles away, a bit before the summit of Mt. Webster, i had another Fox Sparrow, singing as well as a visual!!

Just for kicks, there was also a Bicknell’s Thrush calling and perched in the same area! While that would have been enough to make my day, as we headed down the other side of Mt. Webster (doing the Webster-Jackson trail loop from Crawford Notch), I heard a different noise and some wing beats—it was from two Black-backed Woodpeckers on a tall snag only ~20’ from me!! I tend to forget how big these birds are. As I could not see the top of their heads to determine if they were a pair, the behavior made me think that it was an adult with an immature bird.

Oh, and there were also 5-6 Pine Siskins, 2 Red Crossbills (not able to record their flight calls), 3 Yellow-bellied Flycatchers and 2 Bicknell’s Thrush among other trip species so a good boreal day.

It made the ~6 mile round trip with ~2400’ of vertical in hot, humid weather all worth it!

Subject: [NHBirds] busy peaceable kingdom
This morning the mallard family lounged on the edge of the backyard pond.
At some point they swam towards the lily pads and played in the
water, flapping their wings. Next they swam back to their usual spot
on the bank but 3 painted turtles were already there so the ducks rested in
the water and lily pads. The family is still intact - mother + 7.
At about the same time I saw 3 turkey hens and 2 poults walk under the
fence into the short pasture. Next I saw a redwing dive bombing the
turkeys who ignored it. Lastly a hen turkey came out of the hayfield
accompanied by lots of small poults and another hen. They stayed close to
the edge of the field and disappeared.
A kildeer observed from a rock but did not worry.
Now the area looks completely deserted.

Subject: [NHBirds] Crested Flycatchers Fledge - a Three Species Saga of Life and Death
This morning before 8 AM I saw that the last of the young Great Crested
Flycatchers was sitting in the maple next to a duck box his parents had
nested in. Flying strongly he went from branch to branch on his way up into
the canopy, the best place for young birds to hide out while their tails
grow long and their flying skills improve by the hour.

This duck (Wood or Hooded) box is mounted on a 14 foot 4x4 post with
flashing that prevents access by raccoons and gray and red squirrels, but
not flying squirrels. This was the first successful flycatcher nesting in
35 years, the other two attempts being predated in boxes were on trees..

When I cleaned up the box (with three inches of pine needles and leaves, I
discovered another nest underneath - a neat cup of bark strips that made me
think White-Breasted Nuthatch. In the middle of that nest were what I
initially thought were hickory nuts, perhaps from a flying squirrel. Upon
closer inspection I realized they were skulls of rodents that likely had
been inside the stomach of a small owl.- they were clean and tan-colored.

I had seen nuthatches going into the box in early April, but then they
disappeared. So whether a Saw-whet or a Screech Owl ate them or simply
ejected them, I don’t know. Also, whether a Saw-whet simply continued on
its migration or an unlucky Screech Owl found itself in the stomach of our
resident Barred Owl, I’ll never know. either.

Subject: [NHBirds] Red-headed Woodpeckers at Bear Brook State Park - Fledged!
The pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers that Susan Dionne discovered at Bear
Brook SP this spring have successfully fledged 2 young!

I met up with Susan D yesterday morning as she was just about to leave the
area where the woodpeckers were nesting. She had already spent an hour
watching the babies sticking their heads out of the nest hole, but decided
to walk back over with me. As we sat down to watch, we realized the nest
cavity was empty! I could hear the babies calling from behind us and to
the side of us, but Susan D was the one who spotted them both. She's got a
knack for finding Red-headed Woodpeckers! Although we missed the exact
moment when they left the nest, it was still very exciting to be there
within moments of when it happened.

Happy birding,

Subject: [NHBirds] North Conway Merlins
There are 2 adult and 1 juvenile Merlin perched, preening, and calling to
each other, adjacent to the Hone Depot loading dock. Assuming their nest
must have been nearby, it’s an interesting choice of location.

Subject: [NHBirds] North Country Birding - boreal chickadee and more
Hello All,

I spent the past 5 days on Millsfield Pond in Millsfield, NH which is next
to Errol. My family has a rustic camp on this pond and has so since 1957.
My grandfather, a veteran of Omaha Beach, built this camp in 1957. He is
alive and kicking today at the ripe old age of 97.

Since I started birding more seriously about 6-7 years ago (albeit I am
still very much an amateur) I have made it an annual tradition to bird this
area around the 4th of July. I usually see the same types of birds every
year with some variation. I was most excited about the boreal chickadee I
got a real good look at this year.

Here's what I came across this year:
Northern Parula (5)
Ovenbird (heard too many to count / saw 4)
Chestnut Sided Warbler (1) / first chestnut sided at the pond for me
Canada Warbler (10+)
American Redstart (1) - usually see far more redstarts
Magnolia Warbler (1)
Boreal Chickadee (1) / first time sighting for me at the pond
black capped chickadee (3)
Common Loon (5)
Belted Kingfisher (1) usually see more
Cedar Waxwing (too many to count)
Bald Eagle (2) see pics
Broad Winged Hawk (1)
Northern flicker (6+)
Grackle
Red eyed vireo (saw 3)
Blue headed vireo (saw 1)
Swainson's Thrush (saw 6 / heard too many to count) see pics
Winter wren (saw 0 / heard too many to count)
Robin
Eastern Phoebe - see pic
red breasted nuthatch (1)
Tree swallow
ruffed grouse (3 adults + chicks)
Blue Jay
Catbird

10 Snowshoe Hare
1 white tailed deer
0 Moose

Subject: [NHBirds] perched Red Crossbills in Weare
A pair of Red Crossbills were feeding on Red Pine seeds at the "Clough" birding are in East Weare this morning. There might have been more than two but we could not confirm that. They were silent but I did notice the male feeding the female a seed, a hint of courtship.

The precise spot is along the East Weare Road where it junctions with the (gated) back road into Clough State Park. This spot is easy to identify and is quite close to the Dunbarton town line. DeLorme Map #27 grid H-12.

On Sunday I made another trip up Pack Monadnock (Raymond Trail) in search
of Crossbills, it didn't take long before I had Crossbills passing over
head and was soon able to record one of the groups. Thanks to Tim Spahr
for picking through my recording, turns out the largest group I ran across
was a mix of types 1, 3 and 10 Red Crossbills!

Which is a different point all together. Can something be occasionally incessant?

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, July 6, 2020
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, July 6th, 2020.



During the Corona virus outbreak NH Audubon encourages you to enjoy birding
safely; please follow travel and social distance recommendations from state
and federal authorities.



An ACADIAN FLYCATCHER was seen and heard at the marsh on Gile Road near the
junction with Route 152 in Lee on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th.



A SANDHILL CRANE continues to be seen on private property in Errol and was

A nesting pair of RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS continues to be seen at Bear Brook
State Park and was last reported on July 1st. At least 2 chicks were also
present.



2 MERLINS were seen at Great Pond in Kingston on July 2nd.

8 PURPLE MARTINS were reported from the coast on July 3rd.



A BLUE-WINGED WARBLER was reported from Pittsburg on July 4th, far north for
this species.



A YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER was seen at McDaniels Marsh in Springfield on
July 5th. This species is usually found farther north during the nesting
season.



A female/immature NORTHERN HARRIER was seen at Signal Hill in Lebanon, and a
pair was seen near the Pontook Reservoir in Dummer, all on July 4th.



3 GLOSSY IBIS were seen in Rye on June 30th.



A HORNED LARK was reported from Hanover, an unusual location, on July 1st.



A BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER was seen near Little Cherry Pond in Jefferson on
July 4th.



2 broods of RING-NECKED DUCKS were reported from Sandwich during the past
week, farther south than they normally nest.



A CHUKAR was seen in Nottingham on July 2nd.



New Hampshire Audubon’s Rare Bird Alert is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank.



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

The reason is so that excessively large images don't get sent and impact

Subject: [NHBirds] AGAIN with the hawks...
So we have some new pics of the hawks in the neighborhood. The first one
was taken by someone who is not in our immediate neighborhood but very
close by.

[image: HAWKS.jpg]

[image: HAWKS2.jpg]

[image: HAWKS3.jpg]and this one was taken by my neighbor. This is the
large one I spotted with the white chest in the road and never flinched
when I drove up next to him. There is a video with this one on the ground
hanging out with the smaller one in this pic. There was definitely a
difference in height between the two.

[image: HAWK4.jpg] Would the big guy be hanging out with the smaller one?
Any closer to an identification? Thanks!!

Subject: [NHBirds] Least Tern HBSP update
Good Morning:

I wanted to see how the least terns have done given all the activity that I continue to see reported on the news for Hampton Beach. Under foggy skies this morning I did not see the numbers of either the Least Terns or Piping plovers that I was hoping to see. Over the past few weeks I have stopped once a week observing. I am confident to say that there were 5 nesting Least Tern sites, I had observed 4 catchings, two chicks apiece. Today I only saw three families, what I believe to be the first hatching I saw one chick that could fly ( I know that there were two initially). The adult brought food in however did not stay with it, this adult feed that one chick twice, I never saw another one that size approach that adult.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/143862779@N08/50083199556/in/dateposted-public/
Next which I believe to be the second hatching, one adult however chicks running around, the other adult came in and fed often.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/143862779@N08/50083199836/in/dateposted-public/
The third pair that I observed I believe maybe the one that was sitting on the nest last, they appear to be smaller/newer. Both parents staying in the immediate area/feeding.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/143862779@N08/50083199836/in/dateposted-public/
There was one more pair of adults acting strange, almost like a mating dance, rubbing up on each other, making a different call then I have ever heard. Perhaps they had chicks near by however I did not see and they never left the area.
I walked to where a separate nesting site was near the enclosure for the piping plovers ( saw two chicks with them last week) however no terns or chicks, perhaps up in the grass?
Piping Plovers I only say two larger chicks on the beach, I had two adults come into the Least Tern area, but were pushed out by the terns, perhaps the chicks were up in the marsh grass, hope so.

Subject: [NHBirds] 4th of July Birds & Bugs Big Weekend - 2020
For the last 7 years, Jane and I have traveled across the State to find 
as many birds and bugs as we can over the 4th of July weekend.  Most
years, this was done in a single day, but for the last 2 years, we have
traveled north and explored different areas and spread out the 3-day
weekend.   We are calling this the "4th of July Birds & Bugs Big
Weekend" where we attempted to see or hear as many species of birds,
dragonflies and butterflies as we can in three days.  Past attempts have
found such rarities as Western Kingbird, Pacific Loon, Taper-tailed
Darner, and Variegated Frittilary!

We traveled to northern New Hampshire on Thursday night and spent all
day Friday in the Errol vicinity.  We started by exploring the (newly
famous) West Branch Clear Stream Road and Wind Turbine access roads in
Dixville.  We then explored Lake Umbagog (Sweat Meadow) by Kayak and
finished with bugs around Wentworth Location.   We spent Saturday
walking out to Cherry and Little Cherry Ponds as well as Mud Pond Bog
and Airport Marsh and the airport access road (Localizer Drive) for
butterflies.  We finished the weekend today (Sunday) with a full day in
southern New Hampshire including the coast, Durham, Lee, Newmarket and
Newington.

Weather was very odd and not as predicted.  The weather up north was
generally better than forecast with no rain and some nice sun for bugs. 
Today, however, was predicted to be a summer beach day, but ended up
cloudy and cool with thick morning fog on the seacoast and some sunny
breaks in the afternoon but with a cool southeast wind. Coupled with the
continued COVID closures and huge crowds, this made the coast a big bust
and not much fun.  And the lack of sun made for no luck with some of the
specialty insects of the south coastal plain.

BIRD SUMMARY- 146 SPECIES - Bird highlights included boreal birding
along the wind turbine access road in Dixville, including BICKNELL'S
THRUSH and FOX SPARROW.  Other highlights include the always wonderful
MISSISSIPPI KITES, the continuing ACADIAN FLYCATCHER found by Kurk
Dorsey in Lee and our first southbound (fall) migrant
shorebirds....right on schedule including Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs
and Least Sandpipers.  We ended up with 21 species of warblers and also
got a BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER near Little Cherry Pond. Not many big
misses, but we didn't get any owls, woodcocks, or
whip-poor-wills......couldn't get up that early!  No luck with Brown
Thrasher, Upland Sandpiper, or Piping Plover (didn't try).

DRAGONFLY SUMMARY - 33 SPECIES - Not a big weekend for dragonflies as
the cloudy weather today really hurt us and places like the Lamprey
River and some coastal ponds were DEAD.  Nevertheless, we had some nice
bugs up north including a cool EMERGING ARROW CLUBTAIL, a CLAMP-TIPPED
EMERALD caught in Whitefield, and nice CRIMSON-RINGED WHITEFACES in
Jefferson.  Lots of misses including Slaty Skimmer (!), Widow Skimmer,
Spangled Skimmer, Fragile Forktail (!), and Eastern Amberwing.

BUTTERFLY SUMMARY - 31 SPECIES - Highlights included a MUSTARD WHITE
(northern NH specialty) and HARVESTER.  Also a great show of BOG COPPERS
up north.  Misses included Red Admiral, American & Painted Lady,
Silver-spotted Skipper, and Common Ringlet.

** My camera died last week, so I had to resort to my backup Point &

Subject: [NHBirds] Upper Valley miscellany - July 5



Happy Fifth of July!

Unity and I headed up to the Upper Valley today, with the express goal of seeing the famous West Lebanon Least Bittern(s), but we took our time getting there.

We started the morning walking the old road along the east edge of MacDaniel's Marsh WMA in Springfield. The highlight here was a singing YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER maybe half a mile in. This far south in the state this species is almost entirely restricted to mountaintops, such as nearby Mount Cardigan (also a relatively recent record from Sunapee), although there was also a summer record in Lempster a few years back. Between the latter record and.today's bird, I suspect this species might be a little more widespread at lower elevations in Sullivan and southern Grafton counties than we suspect, albeit thinly distributed across the landscape. Other highlights along this trail were several Canada Warblers, two parulas, and a couple of flyover Red Crossbills.

Bog Road in Enfield was fairly quiet (it was 9:00 by now), but a definite highlight was a Black-billed Cuckoo calling across from the Cole Pond trailhead. A female Hooded Merganser with five half-grown young was in the gravel pit pond at this same location. It was definitely getting warm (and crowded with people) by the time we got to the rail trail in downtown Enfield, but at "Main Street Pond" we got good looks at Wood Thrush, a male redstart gathering food, and an adult Bald Eagle perched out on the island not far from the nest.

At noon, after picking up a pizza from Lui Lui's, we arrived at Cranberry Wetlands, and in short order heard the Sora that's been hanging out there. Not long afterward we spotted one of the Least Bitterns foraging low along the far shore, and then, since it was getting warm and quiet, we headed home.

A great day filled with fun and exciting birds!

Subject: [NHBirds] American Kestrel - eating field mouse
Yesterday, we observed our local Kestrel pair at the neighbor's farm, they have successfully raised 1 offspring and have been having many hunting lessons over the fields. At one point, they killed some mice and were on the ground in the field, until the cows came out of the barn directly through their kill zone. One Kestrel carried its prey to a nearby 20 ft pole, and proceeded to pluck off the fur and eat it. I took several photos and a few videos. I apologize these were at quite a distance and I did not have a tripod, but the action of the video is very interesting. Each video starts at the base of the pole and then I scan vertically to the Kestrel, sitting on top with his prey. This was necessary, as I have a very simple camera, and I needed to have it focus on the pole in order to then get a clearer focus on the Kestrel (which was against a background of field and barn sheds in the distance).

https://www.flickr.com/photos/151291218@N03/50077237792/in/dateposted-public/

If you page through my Flickr photo stream, there are several still photos, and 3 video clips. One of the photos, shows the Kestrel family of 3, (2 paired on top of a pole at the barn ridgeline, with one about 12 feet away on the wire). One of the photos in my picture stream shows the field, the barn, and 2 poles in the field foreground (the kestrel was sitting on the shorter pole.

Subject: [NHBirds] Pink bird in Newington?
Birders
I was just driving back from the Home Depot in Newington to get some supplies for a do-it-yourself-then-call-a-professional project, when I saw a pinkish or maybe light orange bird flying roughly southeast as I was driving roughly northwest. I was on NH 16 between the mall and Rockingham Electric. It seemed to be about pigeon-sized, but I must admit to being so surprised that I can't swear to that. I pulled over as quickly as I could, but just saw it flying in the opposite direction. If anyone else knows what it is, I'd be appreciative.

In non-hallucinatory sightings, I had a Cliff Swallow on the US 4/Bellamy River Bridge on my way into Newington.

Birders
I headed out this morning on my bike (just like the Founding Fathers--it's a little known fact that Washington rode across the Delaware bridge, not rowed across the river) with a goal of doing 17 miles and finding 76 species. I ended up with 19 and 84, which was not really the omen I was hoping for. A few highlights:
--the bird of the day was a Parula singing in my yard! Weird bird for July. I found all the expected warblers except for a Black-throated Green, which I can usually get in the yard.
--RB Nuthatches were at Surrey Lane and Maud Jones forest in Lee
--Bank Swallows were at Old Mill Road in Lee, Jackson's landing in Durham, and the UNH reservoir
--Green Herons were at Old Mill and Surrey Lane
--Blue-winged and Prairie warblers still singing at Thompson Forest
--a Louisiana Waterthrush sang once on Young Dr in Durham, which seems like a really strange place for that species
--the Kite was on its nest
--Blue-headed Vireo singing along Sheep Road in Lee
--Willow Flycatcher called just once at Old Mill Road
--Osprey and Cooper's Hawk at Jackson Landing
--Red-shouldered Hawk in Woodridge neighborhood, Broad-wing at Maud Jones forest
--1 turkey, 0 bald eagles

Subject: [NHBirds] Boreal Bonanza Mt. Tremont
This morning I wanted to do a hike close to my place so I decided on Mt. Tremont in Barltett with its trailhead ~12 minutes from me. The Mt. Tremont trail is 2.8 miles to its peak at ~3400’ with an almost 2600’ vertical so it has some pitch.

As I neared the top, I saw two Boreal Chickadees. When i got to the small rocky ledge at the top with great views south over Sawyer Pond, to the Kanc and various mountains including the Tripyramids, I saw movement from a medium sized bird and as I got on it, to my surprise, it was a juvenile Canada Jay! To top it all of at the top, listening to the Swainson’s Thrushes, Yellow-rumped Warblers and Dark-eyed Juncos calling, I heard a different thrush call and realized it was a Bicknell’s . . . turned out it was ~30’ away perched at the top of a fir tree giving good bino looks. Additonally, among other species, I also had Blackpoll Warbler and a flock of ~5 Red Crossbills which I taped so will try to “Type” it. I had another group of crossbills which I think were White-winged but were just too distant to confirm.

Of course, this was my first hike all year when I did not have my camera with me (other than iPhone) . . . oh, well, great memories for this unusual 4th of July!! In the Mt. Washington Valley, who would have expected such an array of boreal birds on July 4th?

Mama Mallard brought her ducklings to sunbathe by the backyard pond. Well
feathered but half her size. There was one that was almost her size. Made

itself and a couple of large frogs croaked.
Several swallow nests are approaching fledging. Hope they get a 2nd brood.

Subject: [NHBirds] Breeding Ring-necked Ducks in Sandwich
This morning I was amazed to find not one, but two broods of RNDU’s at the Meadow Brook wetland along Rt 25 (~3/8 mile west/south of Bearcamp Pond Rd). A first breeding record for Sandwich, and I believe the most southern in NH (?). Each brood had six ducklings closely guarded by a hen - one on the north/west side of the highway, one on the south/east. I also saw one drake (there have been up to four seen over the past month or so). There are lots of places for the ducks to hide, and a plenty of other waterfowl species present, so some determination and care might be needed to see them (a scope can’t hurt). Also extreme caution should be exercised at this location as it is a busy state highway with a narrow shoulder (although one can pull off a car completely).

Best Independence Day present ever!

Subject: [NHBirds] Red Crossbills - Newport
While visiting a friend this afternoon, I had an impressive flock of around 15-16 RED CROSSBILLS fly over his dooryard in Newport. One of the more larger sized flocks I’ve had in the area. The location was just east of Chandler Mills Road off of Routes 11/103 in Newport. Not a location to try to chase these birds, but just giving an idea of specific location.

Birders
This morning just before 8 I had an Acadian flycatcher, or possibly a dog squeaky toy, calling from the trees at Gile Road in Lee. If one takes 152 west of 125, Gile Road is the first road on the right, and the bird was calling from the trees next to the pond on the left.

Yesterday, I had two sapsuckers squeal at me from either side of the Oyster River Forest in Durham, first on the Packers Falls Road side and then from the Mill Road side, so I suppose that they successfully nested there this spring.

Wednesday I had a Nelson's sparrow singing and then flying at the end of the Sweet Trail at TNC's Lubberland Creek preserve. The behavioral highlight was watching a RW Blackbird and an Osprey team up to attack a Great Blue Heron--I didn't see it start, so I can only speculate about what the heron did to earn that unlikely alliance.

Many have heard of the twilight "Skydance" of the American Woodcock, easily heard, but difficult to see as night falls. But this isn't the only bird that performs a courtship display in the sky. The American Pipit is also known for dancing in the sky and it performs in daylight - atop Mt. Washington! Read about this fascinating bird and where you can watch it sky dance in the Fall 2006 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V25%20N3%20Fall%202006.pdf ("Skydance of the American Pipit" begins on page 54).

Subject: [NHBirds] Contoocook Island Survey - Red Crossbill etc.
Unity and I did my weekly 2.5 walk around "The Island" this morning, and for
a stuffy early July day with limited bird song we ended up doing quite well.
Our species total of 49 is one short of tying the early July record (and we
missed starling!!), and here are some of the highlights:



Red Crossbills continue - generally in the area around the boat launch at
the south end of the island. They've now been here for just over a week.

Another Red-breasted Nuthatch - I definitely think these guys are on the
move as well.

A nice collection of species that I don't regularly get in the summer here,
including Brown Creeper, Black-throated Blue Warbler, and Indigo Bunting.

Grackles are starting to flock up (yep, fall is coming!), with a flock of 20
to start the walk.

Two young Red Squirrels still a little clumsy in their scampering - and
quite adorably tame.



And I just heard a crossbill out my office window - yard bird #136! Not bad
for a condo with essentially no yard.

I saw my first Yellow-billed Cuckoo at Temple Mt -yesterday-off the Beebe Trail-lower end in some gray birches. I have heard them in the past, but never seen one.
Also, heard one in the distance at my house in Wilton this am.

Subject: [NHBirds] cuckoos and more cuckoos and more
On June 30 both species of Cuckoos were calling along my road here in Webster (Call Road) and then early this morning both species were calling at Elm Brook Park in West Hopkinton.

Yesterday at Concord Airport there was a singing Grasshopper Sparrow that put on a long show, singing and sitting on top of the highest bush. It was easily seen just inside the fence.

Subject: [NHBirds] Bird feeders
I'm a novice birder of sorts, and have enjoyed reading about the various
sightings of the group.
I usually only have feeders up over the winter, and then only for
hummingbirds in the summer. But, this year, because spring was so wet &
cool, left feeders up longer, and then attracted orioles with grape jelly &
oranges, and so on.
Now have a juvenile Red Bellied Woodpecker and an adult RBW, 1-2 juvenile
Downy Woodpeckers, a juvenile cardinal, the orioles, and Rose Breasted
Grosbeaks, among other regulars that I've noticed at the feeder.
Long story short, still have feeders up, seed plus oranges/grape jelly. Am
enjoying the birds, but also am attracting a lot of squirrels & chipmunks!
I feel guilty. Am I spoiling them and contributing to them relying on my
prepared food source rather than mother nature?

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Terek Sandpiper at Napatree Point in Rhode Island
I was lucky enough to see the Terek Sandpiper on Tuesday.  Perhaps the
4th record for the lower 48 states and only the 2nd in the northeastern US.
This after I spent all day on Monday with no luck!!  I was out on a boat
with Simon Perkins and Peter Alden and we saw it on Sandy Point in the
mid-afternoon and Napatree Point later in the afternoon.

It seems to be foraging (sometimes) at the end of Napatree Point in RI,
which is about a 1 mile walk along a beach to an observation area
where people are mostly gathered to look for the bird.  This is near a
tidal lagoon toward the point on the bay side.

The problem is that the bird is skiddish (as many European birds are due
to hunting) and it will readily fly over to Sandy Point Island which is
about a mile away.
This is an island that is inaccessible except by boat.  When it is over
there, it forages along the beach and up in an area of nesting gulls.
When it is there, it is essentially IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE from Napatree
Point (although people have!).

People who have been very patient have waited for it to return to
Napatree and some have been rewarded.  However, even
when it returns to Napatree Point, it can be difficult to see if it is
foraging along the shoreline to the south of the observation
area further out to the point.  It may be that the bird prefers Napatree
at high tides and Sandy Point at low tides, but this may also
just be a coincidence.

Laura de la Flor and Mark Burns and others were there yesterday for 4
hours from 2 PM to 6 PM but did not see it, but it is possible it was
over on Sandy Point and
just not cooperative.  I have not heard of other negative reports.

With the holiday weekend, I expect there will be numerous birders
(possibly from all over the US) putting a lot of effort into trying to
find it.  Between the drive, the parking,
the hike on the beach, the risk of thunderstorms, and the flighty
behavior of this bird, IT IS A TOUGH ONE!!

If you monitor Ed's site, we may hear if there are positive reports in
the next few days.

Subject: [NHBirds] Wildcat Falls (Merrimack) closed
Hi all,
Even though I'm not in the state currently I thought I'd pass this on as it's from my hometown. Wildcat Falls Conservation Area, one of my favorite birding spots, is currently closed for an indefinite period of time due to a huge number of complaints by neighborhood residents about littering, noise, and other disruptions. Since COVID-19, Wildcat Falls has been experiencing massive increases in traffic - it was always full before, but in the past couple of months people have been parking down residential streets, completely overflowing the parking lot and making the trails very crowded. It's a great place to bird in spring and summer, but that will have to wait this year unfortunately. Just thought I'd give a heads up to anyone who may go there often.
There's an article about it here:
https://www.unionleader.com/nh/outdoors/merrimacks-wildcat-falls-closed-indefinitely/article_b20586e5-837c-5dea-9e10-8e4a8b4e93e5.html

The biggest issue you will have is parking. All of the state parks require advanced reservations for parking. If u dont already have that you may be out of luck. Also all of the turnouts along rte 1 are closed. I would recommend any of those parks especially rye harbor and odiorne state park. I was there 2 days ago and saw 15+ coastal terns among lots of other species at odiorne. Sometimes if u get to odirone by exactly by 730Am the gate is open and u may be in luck with a friendly state park person

Hi all,
I'm hoping to spend tomorrow on the coast if possible. The places I've
looked into visiting so far are: Odiorne Point State park, Rye Harbor State
Park, Hampton Salt Marsh Conservation Area, Hampton Beach State Park.

If anyone has any suggestions for strategies, other locations, tips, I
would greatly appreciate it - ("don't go to ________, you'll never find

I am especially interested in terns, so I would love advice on where to go
to see large numbers of loafing terns if such locations exist along the NH
coast.

My goals are, well, coastal birds: Roseate Tern (any tern really),
shorebirds, waders, coastal sparrows... I've looked on eBird, so I know
these birds are around, but there is always information (like those
examples above) that only locals with first hand knowledge can impart.

Thank you in advance if anyone has any advice!

About 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, two adult loons were seen escorting two very small chicks around the shallows in front of Loch Lyme Lodge. Sometimes the chicks would ride on the adults, at other times they paddled alongside them. Hard to judge their size at a distance, but less than eight inches in length is a fair guess.

Subject: [NHBirds] American Oystercatcher at Isles of Shoals
eBird users may have noticed a sighting of a family of American Oystercatchers on Lunging Island at the Isles of Shoals in June. This is a first breeding record for New Hampshire and is very exciting! Please note that Lunging Island is privately owned and there is no public access. Unfortunately there is no opportunity to land and view the birds at this location. We have occasionally seen oystercatchers on Lunging and other islands at the Isles of Shoals from the Granite State during NH Audubon pelagic trips. Viewing from the distance on a boat may be the best option. If you do approach in a boat, please do not disturb the birds by getting too close.

This message was sent after a consultation initiated by the NH Fish & Game Department.

This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, June 29th, 2020.



During the Corona virus outbreak NH Audubon encourages you to enjoy birding
safely; please follow travel and social distance recommendations from state
and federal authorities.



5 AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHERS were seen on Lunging Island, one of the Isles
Shoals, on June 25th, and there was an unconfirmed sighting of a BLACK
SKIMMER from coastal Rye on the 28th.



Up to 3 LEAST BITTERNS continue to be seen at the Cranberry Ponds located

Subject: [NHBirds] Lancy Brook Wetland ebird Hotspot
Over the last few days I've seen a bit more birding traffic at Lancy Brook
in Brookline / Mason NH so I thought I would post a trail map to prevent
anyone from getting lost (trust me it's not hard to do if you wonder down
the wrong trail) and to ensure everyone is following the rules posted by
the land owner.

Trails (approximate depiction):

Rules for all dirty roads (all privately owned)
https://www.flickr.com/photos/127251358@N05/50059963222/in/photostream/

As far as birds go I had Red Crossbills a few times over the last week, the
White Pines at Lancy Brook have a fairly good cone crop this year so it
could get interesting! The cone crop seems very localized to the White
Pines within a few miles of Lancy Brook. The "Rain Crows" were very vocal
this afternoon, I believe there were three all calling fairly regularly in
the light rain!

Enjoy

Subject: [NHBirds] Locations for SAVS (or SWSP)?
Hello NHBirds Subscribers,

I'm a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire studying the evolution
of sparrow species to diverse environments in eastern North America. One of
the focal species of my research is the savannah sparrow.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any sites with a high density (or even
just a reliable presence) of savannah sparrows in the state (or nearby in
ME) where we could potentially mist-net? Public lands, or private lands
where the landowner would potentially be okay with this, would be great.

We are also looking for (albeit having slightly less trouble finding) sites
with swamp sparrows. Similarly, any tips on swamp sparrow sites are also
welcome!

If you know of any great locations that you'd like to share, please get in
touch with me via email, <jdc1068...>.

Thanks,

Jon

I have seen a hawk that looks like this in my yard as well. I live on Butterfield lane in Stratham. We also have daily hawk sightings. Being a novice when I looked it up I did think it was a Goshawk.

The duck stamp also covers the entrance fee at National Wildlife Refuges

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Hawk Identification
A few things: the heavy dark barring on the chest and belly with a buff
background ...Coops would be much more lightly streaked on the chest with a
whiter background. Also note heavy barring extending all the way down the
leg feathers (again the smaller accipiters would have very light streaking
on those feathers). Note the prominent white supercilium. Also on the tail,
you can only just see a little of the upper tail pattern, but enough to see
the characteristic light edges to the irregular dark bands.

NH Audubon has received a confirmed (with photos) report of a Black-Crowned Night Heron on Back Bay in Wolfeboro. It was seen on Thursday morning, but has not been seen by the observer since, although he's checked every morning. To get to the location it was observed, follow the (unnamed?) road that goes off Bay St by "Flags Over Winnipesaukee" and past "Wolfetrap Grill and Rawbar" to where the road dead-ends. This location is between Back Bay and a wetland, and it is publicly accessible.

Subject: [NHBirds] Cow Bird chick
For the last couple of days, I have had a Cow Bird chick following a Song Sparrow, relentlessly begging for food. If it wasn’t so sad it would be comical. The Cow Bird is twice the size of theSong Sparrow! I have not seen this combination before.

Subject: [NHBirds] Red Crossbills in the south




Greetings all,

For those who might not be aware, there have been numerous reports of Red Crossbills in south-central NH over the last month, with most in a couple of concentrations around Hancock and Greenfield. On Friday morning Unity and I had a flock of 11 near the entrance to Pillsbury State Park in Washington, and I suspect there are even more in some of the less-frequently birded areas of the western highlands. I've even had a few in Concord over the last four days, with one on Island Thursday and today, and another along Bog Road this morning. All the ones I've had have been flyovers - identified by their characteristic "jip jip jip" flight call. Only one of all the June records has been identified to call type, and it was "Type 10 (Sitka spruce)." Anyone hearing crossbills is encouraged to get recordings so we can get a better idea of which call types are part of the current incursion. Are they the offspring of the birds that were up in the Whites over the winter and early spring? Or is there a separate irruption going on from elsewhere on the continent? Call types may be one way to sort this out.

Also of note has been the "sudden" appearance of Red-breasted Nuthatch in my Penacook stomping grounds in the last week, after not having any locally since early May. RB Nuthatches are also irruptive, so they might be responding to the same general factors as Red Crossbills, and perhaps we'll be having a good winter for this species in the south after them being pretty scarce over the winter of 2019-20.

Enjoy,
Pam Hunt
Penacook

Somone else thought it might be a goshawk. We have been spotting tons of
hawks out here. They appear to be endearing themselves to us. I still
don't know what kind of hawk I saw on the road that was so very tall with a
white chest. I thought it was a statue.

Subject: [NHBirds] YT
I've gotten several ? of what's YT. so here goes:

After a hiatus of 40 years, a Bald Eagle male acted interested in a
territory in New Hampshire, on Lake Umbagog. He had come from a New York
project that had brought an egg from Alaska to be hatched and raised and
released as wild. He was outfitted with a Yellow petagial (wing) Tag at
the time of release, for easy ID. He and a female nested on a small island
and Mark and I monitored the nesting until Umbagog NWR was established and
they took over the monitoring. Interestingly, they chose the exact tree
that the last nesting in the state occurred. Hundreds of people paddled
out to our locale and watched the goings on at the nest throughout the
seasons we were there. It made news throughout New England and even got
broadcast in Europe on Radio Free America. The first chick actually died
and US Fish and Wildlife found a chick of the approximate age to replace
it, not knowing if the adults would accept it. We were told this was the
first time such a replacement was tried. After hours of holding our
collective breaths, it was fed. We quietly high-fived! and it eventually
fledged. WHAT A JOB!!!!!

Subject: [NHBirds] Kingbirds Riding Eagles?
We've all heard the myth of Hummingbirds riding the backs of Geese, but Kingbirds riding Eagles? That's no myth! Small birds will chase and attack larger birds to protect territory and nests. The Eastern Kingbird is noted for its aggressive defense and has been photographed landing on eagles. Read about this "mobbing" behavior and see photos of a Kingbird landing on a Bald Eagle in this article from the Winter 2017-18 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V36%20N4%20Winter%202017-18%20web.pdf ("Mobbing" begins on page 36).

Subject - NH Rare Birds Committee - Highlights of Votes on 2019 Records



On June 8th the New Hampshire Rare Birds Committee (NHRBC) voted on records
from four seasons - Spring 2019, Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Winter
2019/2020. Key highlights were the acceptance of records of three species
that represent additions to the NH state list -



Gull-billed Tern - 5/2/19 - seen at Pulpit Rocks in Rye by Andrea and George
Robbins

Cassin's Sparrow - 9/21/19 - seen on Star Island by a group led by Eric
Masterson

Brambling - 12/4/19 - a feeder bird seen by Scott Young in Northwood



That brings the official NH state list to 423 species.



The complete report on all the 2019 records reviewed by the NHRBC will be
published in a future edition of the New Hampshire Bird Records.

Subject: [NHBirds] Thomson’s Tree Farm, Orford : Rusty Blackbirds, Northern Goshawk, Great Blue Heron rookery
I took a break from packing (a bit more on that later) to bird Thomson’s
Tree Farm in Orford this morning and had a few notable birds. TTF is a huge
area on the backside of Mt. Cube with some excellent habitat, especially
the wetland areas, which at close to 2,000 feet in elevation have a very
boreal feel. Tom Thomson opens up the road every year about this time
(four-wheel drive only) for a “Lupine Tour” as the flowers are in bloom
along the access road. I went up to scope out the Great Blue Heron rookery
at “Bog 4” and counted three adults and at least 14 young on what appeared
to be six active nests. I got good looks at a flyover male Northern
Goshawk, but most surprising were 6 Rusty Blackbirds. As I had my scope I
got a few documentation shots. I have had them here in the fall and spring,
but never in June. My eBird report is here:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S70807514
I wanted to take this opportunity to say goodbye to my NH birding
friends. After 23 years in Orford and 30+ in NH, we are moving to St.
Johnsbury, Vt. For now, I am still employed in Lebanon, so I will still
bird the Upper Valley along the river, but my birding focus will be the
Northeast Kingdom and probably the Vermont side of the Connecticut a bit
more. I hope to cross paths with the birders I know in both states in the
upcoming years. Best to all! Jeff MacQueen, Orford

Subject: [MASSBIRD] Bluebird Behavior Question

In late March a bluebird pair used a nest hole that was drilled & excavated in a White Birch snag by male Downy but seemed to be rejected by the female when he brought her. The bluebirds occupied the nest hole and fledged two but never saw both fledglings together. The pair started another nest in a neighbor’s box but abandoned that and returned to the birch site where they are successful.

I have watched them multiple times during the day. Both parents continue to bring food to the nest hole. Yesterday and today there was a fledgling with them. I assumed one bird had fledged and there was at least one that remained in the nest that stuck its head out. However, the fledgling also came to the nest hole with food.

The question is do bluebird fledglings help with caring for current nest mates or is it from the first brood? Not familiar with progress of plumage in young birds but did notice some blue in tail feathers of the fledgling. It still has its spotted breast and overall appears gray.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, June 22, 2020 CORRECTED
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, June 22nd, 2020.



During the Corona virus outbreak NH Audubon encourages you to enjoy birding
safely; please follow travel and social distance recommendations from state
and federal authorities.



There was an unconfirmed report of a SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER seen near
Filter Bed Road in Wolfeboro on June 17th, but it has not been relocated.



There was an unconfirmed report of a female BULLOCK’S ORIOLE at a private
residence in Deerfield on June 18th, but it has not been reported again.



A BLACK VULTURE was seen in Portsmouth on June 15th and 16th, and 2 were
seen at the Wantastiquet Natural Area in Hinsdale on the 20th.



A SANDHILL CRANE was seen on the Great Brook Trail in Deerfield on June
13th, 2020. The bird was seen near the east end of the trail off of
Coffeetown Road but has not reported again.



Up to 3 LEAST BITTERNS continue to be seen at the Cranberry Ponds located
behind the Price Chopper in West Lebanon and were last reported on June
20th.



MISSISSIPPI KITES continued to be reported from Madbury Road in Durham and
from various locations in Newmarket, Stratham, and Greenland, all during the
past week. They have been successfully nesting in several of these towns for
a number of years.



A few pairs of PIPING PLOVERS and LEAST TERNS are nesting at Hampton Beach
State Park. Please tread carefully and respect these nesting and foraging
birds. Young PIPING PLOVERS leave the nest right after hatching, are tiny
and difficult to see, and can be easily injured or killed by an errant
footstep, beach ball, or Frisbee.

Sunrise ( or fog rise) at Hampton Beach State Park this morning, I went to check on the nest after seeing the news over the weekend and I was disgusted to see all the trash but what was worse was the foot prints and markings of things being dragged through the roped off areas!

With that said, I saw this beautiful gull, ID help please.

An additional nest of Least terns have hatched with what appears to be one chick. Odd behavior, one adult kept on going to the nest sight with food to feed the chick however the adult sitting on the nest would not allow it to be feed? I did observe it being feed once, the adult with the food was very distressed, going back and forth numerous times and calling. Even once I thought it was going to feed the other chicks that were in close proximity but was chased off by those parents. Was just strange.

Only saw three Piping Plover chicks as well from HBSP all the way down the beach to the Atlantic ( think that is the correct name) hotel. Hope they were hiding.

Subject: [NHBirds] Speaking of wood ducks...
I see that wood duck have been mentioned a couple of times on the list recently, so I have to tell about my wood duck sighting.

Last Thursday was a nice warm, calm evening, so I thought I would hop in my rowboat and go out in my cove (east side of Meredith Neck on Winnipesaukee) a little ways to get a good view of the stars, which were lovely. So, I grabbed the oars from the shed, and as I stepped onto the dock, wearing my headlamp in case of bears, etc. (there's a dumpster at the marina just up the road that's a regular bear hangout), and instead of bears, I saw a mother wood duck and five tiny ducklings, right there close enough to touch. Wood ducks are usually so shy, but because of the babies, she stuck right by my dock until I made a little too much noise getting into the boat, then flew off a short distance. I made sure to stay away until she had had time to collect everyone and move along.

Subject: [NHBirds] Breeding Bird Survey - cuckoos
The Breeding Bird Surveys were officially canceled this year due to Covid19 but I ran my route anyway for fun. Routes are 25 miles long and you stop every half mile for 3 minutes to record every bird you hear or see. The routes are fixed and run each year so they provide vital data on bird populations on a national (now international) level.

My big highlight was Yellow-billed Cuckoo. I began doing my route in 1998 and had never had one before but I had 4 today! There was also a lot of Bobolink activity. I was surprised by how much the bird song activity continued into mid morning despite the heat. The survey starts at 4:34 am and I finish around 9:00 and my last few points are usually very quiet but not today. My route goes from Canterbury to Gilmanton.

All NH BBS routes are currently covered but if you are interested in being a BBS volunteer observer, let me know and I will contact you if a route opens up (I am the BBS State Coordinator).

Subject: [NHBirds] sauna birding in Webster
Hoping to beat the heat I was up and out a little after 6 a.m. and birded one of my favorite local patches in Webster- Knight Meadow Road and Marsh. I was pleased with the amount of song though seeing birds was a different matter, except for a Black-and-white Warbler that followed me for 100 yards. Do they drink sweat?
Highlights- Wood Duck familyYellow-billed Cuckoo- this is the fourth place I have had this species just in Webster!WINTER WREN- my first local summer sighting in almost ten years, and it was singing.
Field Sparrow- a new spot for Webster.

warblers- 12 species including singing Prairie, and BOTH waterthrushes still singing. The drought will probably mean that Louisianas will leave soon. That's right, leaving breeding areas for points south!

Bob Quinn- now comfortably in my partially underground house at a natural temperature of 68-70 degrees.

Subject: [NHBirds] Bluebird Behavior Question

In late March a bluebird pair used a nest hole that was drilled & excavated in a White Birch snag by male Downy but seemed to be rejected by the female when he brought her. The bluebirds occupied the nest hole and fledged two but never saw both fledglings together. The pair started another nest in a neighbor’s box but abandoned that and returned to the birch site where they are successful.

I have watched them multiple times during the day. Both parents continue to bring food to the nest hole. Yesterday and today there was a fledgling with them. I assumed one bird had fledged and there was at least one that remained in the nest that stuck its head out. However, the fledgling also came to the nest hole with food.

The question is do bluebird fledglings help with caring for current nest mates or is it from the first brood? Not familiar with progress of plumage in young birds but did notice some blue in tail feathers of the fledgling. It still has its spotted breast and overall appears gray.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Subject: [NHBirds] Post war birding in Colombia - no sighting
https://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/culture-exploration/0000016f-b442-d3ee-a17f-f6cf92b40000



This is a short (15 minute) National Geographic film about Diego Calderon. He is now a well-known birding guide in Colombia who, when he was just a student, was kidnapped by FARC for 88 days back in 2004 while birding in Farc territory. This film is about him going back to FARC, and about the connection between the land that was occupied by them and therefore not built on, and the birds in the habitats that they unknowingly saved, and how birds connected the former adversaries. It is in Spanish with English subtitles. 


This year, for the global big day, Diego planned an experiment in which he and his fellow bird guides would demonstrate how birds connect people. Especially in a country like Colombia, with all their problems and realities. They are only 4 years into the peace agreement. He intended to mix birders from all different social backgrounds (guerrilla ex-combatants, soldiers/police, paramilitary ex-combatants, civilian victims, hardcore birders, etc etc etc) and not focus on seeing the most species; instead, focus on enjoying together what links us all: BIRDS!


Unfortunately, due to the pandemic things are rather different. And so instead of posting a link last month to a crowdfunding site to support the global big Day getting people together through birding experiment in Colombia 2020, I am now posting an alternate link. 20 birding guides and their tiny, tiny companies have gotten together to try to support their employees during this time. I think it's an excellent cause. Colombia is just beginning to open up to tourism, and having former farc Rebels saving their forest as an ecotourism spot is a pretty amazingly positive story. But if due to the pandemic no one can get any work, who knows what will happen. 


Colombia has more species of birds than any country in the world. So even though this really doesn't have anything to do in particular with New Hampshire birding, I am posting for people who might like to see the National Geographic film. And who might like to donate to keep birding guides and the families that put people up, and the drivers, and all of the support people who give us so much, and have contributed to so many people seeing life birds, afloat until birding can open up again in Colombia. The money will go to a hundred and fifty families who in one way or another are employed by these tiny Colombian bird guide companies.


I hope many of you enjoy this National Geographic film. And of course I hope that many of you decide to donate to help these people keep birding tourism alive in Colombia. I realize that many people here are suffering financially as a result of the pandemic, and so please don't feel bad if you can't give anything. Just enjoy the short film and plan a trip to Colombia for when things open up and we all have more money and easier travel!


Vaki is a very safe and completely encrypted site which is commonly used in Colombia. It is available in both English and Spanish. Should you feel more comfortable with a bank transfer which can be done with worldremit or several other companies, for free or sometimes a small fee of $3, instead of the 25-40 dollars banks usually charge, please feel free to contact Diego at the following email address and you can arrange an alternate method of donating should you so wish.

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Re: Raven nest in Manchester
In southeastern NH, Common Ravens seem to nest frequently on Cell Phone
towers.  I've loosely monitored a pair at a cell tower in Newmarket and
a pair on a cell tower in Stratham.  I believe they also nest on a cell
tower off I95 in Hampton.  Several years ago, we found a pair nesting on
a cell tower in Haverhill, MA while helping with the Breeding Bird Atlas.

The southward expansion of Common Ravens seems to continue with the help
of cell towers especially along the coast where there aren't as many
remote cliffs.  It used to be rare to see them along the seacoast.  Not
any more!   My understanding is that there have even been a couple of
birds far out on Nantucket Island in MA!!!

Earlier this week, I looked up at the cell tower in Stratham, and saw 7
Ravens!!  Not sure if these are all fledged juveniles (they can have 7
young in a nest) or a combination of adults and juveniles, but they are
almost certainly a family group.  You have to look very closely to see
the stick nest on the bottom left of the platform.

We have a brood of three hear in Sutton Mills. This morning they were
making that call and following a parent around high in the sky. I learned
the call well when I lived in Unity Center, where there was at least one
brood.

My wife, Daisy and I looked for it today and did not find anything. While
there, a local told us she had seen two other bird watchers looking
earlier. That said, the marsh is very hard to see into from the road, so
while we didn’t find it, that’s not to say it’s definitely not around.

Birders
I've been riding my bike on actual roads this week, as opposed to the Sarlacc pit I tried last week, staying within my 5MR circle because I'm too decrepit to get past it. Unlike most bike races, I was the only dope present.

This morning I did a 13 mile loop through Durham and found 77 species. Highlights only:
--Mississippi Kite scolding something-- I had nothing to do with it!
--Sora calling from the end of Young Dr
--8 Killdeer and a Green Heron at Surrey Lane, where the water is really low
--Willow flycatchers at Spinney Lane and Moore Field
--Rough-winged Swallows at Jackson Landing
--Swamp Sparrow at Spinney, Savannah at Moore fields
--Hermit thrush singing at Thompson Forest with Prairie Warbler and Indigo Bunting on backup
--Louisiana Waterthrush where Mill Road crosses the river
--Blue-wings at Moore Fields and Thompson Forest
--making it back in one piece before I melted

Somehow I didn't see a single Wood Duck or Black-and-white Warbler, plus I missed the Alder Flycatcher that had been singing earlier in the week at the Forest Service office on Main Street. And it has been a couple weeks since I've heard a cuckoo, and I still haven't seen/heard a Yellow-billed yet this year. And they're usually clockwork around here.

Subject: [NHBirds] Raven nest in Manchester

While out for a walk around home this morning, I heard some very
strange calls coming from various trees. It was high-pitched, a
couple of seconds long, sounded sort of a cross between a wail and a
shriek. Mixed in were the regular harsh calls of Common Ravens. I
looked around for the source, and over the next few minutes I counted
at least five large black birds flying around and perched in various trees.

I listened to the Crow and Raven calls recorded in the Sibley
e-guide. None of the Crow sounds even came close to matching, but
the Raven sound titled "Fledgling calls" was a close match for what I
was hearing. I've also heard adult ravens calling in the area now
and then throughout the spring. Well, if there are fledgling ravens
around, there must be a nest somewhere close by, right? I don't know
exactly where -- there are a lot of tall trees and several
undeveloped woodlots on and around Wellington Hill, but I can't
imagine fledglings that young flying very far from their nest yet. A
mile, maybe, but no more.

So there must have been a Common Raven nest somewhere in the area
this spring: Wellington Hill, just east of Exit 8 off of I-93 in
Manchester. Very nice!

Subject: [NHBirds] Orange Scarlet Tanager
This is not a NH bird, but very close. While birding the Keay Brook Preserve in Berwick, ME, which is on the Salmon Falls River, there were 3 Scarlet Tanagers that were probably on territory and providing close observation. The third one, which was about 3/4 around the trail loop going clockwise, was a handsome orange bird. I would imagine that if it is on territory, it would remain there for a while.
The Preserve is an eBird hotspot on the Hubbard Road in Berwick. Approaching from the Lebanon end of the road, there are signs that the road is closed with a detour, but the closure must be beyond the Preserve from this direction. I’m not sure the Preserve can be reached from the Berwick end at present.

NH Audubon has received an unconfirmed but credible report of a Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher, seen on Wednesday (6/17) in Wolfeboro, at the wetland just north of Taylor Drive by Filter Bed Rd. There is no photo, but the observer provided a good description of the bird, which was seen sitting for a long period at the top of a dying ash tree near the wetland. If any nearby birders want to check it out, good luck and let us know if you find it!

Subject: [NHBirds] Pipits on Mount Washington
David Govatski and I spent roughly five hours wandering across the alpine zone (5-6,000 ft) on Mount Washington on Thurs 6/18 in searching of breeding American Pipits. The near-absence of wind contributed to our ability to locate vocalizing males as they engaged in display flights in areas from Nelson Crag to the Cow Pasture to the Gulfside Trail, and attempt to delineate the number of areas with breeding activity.

While we could not be certain that all the pipits we saw were males, most of them likely were since females do almost all of the incubation in ground nests that are hidden under small overhanging boulders in the cushion-tussock vegetation. We didn't see any food-carrying activity which suggests most pairs are still incubating. Based on our admittedly brief survey, we estimate that we could account for roughly 11 breeding territories during our visit. Additional info and a few photos available on eBird (Checklist S70603701).

Pipits are known to breed in only two disjunct alpine locations in the eastern U.S. - on Mount Katahdin in northern Maine, and on Mount Washington in northern NH. The next closest breeding site is in the Chic-Chocs Mountains in the Gaspe Peninsula of Quebec.

Subject: [NHBirds] least tern chick HBSP!!! I think the first
I am SO happy to report that I believe the blessed event happened right before sunrise. Arriving shortly after, I saw one chick as well as the parent removing the egg shell and discarding it away from the nest...Supper cool to see! I did not see any other eggs in that nest. It does appear that there are still 3 more least tern nest, one of those may also have hatched given the behavior but not totally sure.
On another note, ran into someone from the state counting plover chicks, it does appear that two of the nest that had hatched with four chicks are now down to two but he said that is normal? Also that there are a record number of nests this year in Hampton and Seabrook. I wish the beach had stayed closed for just a few more weeks....lol

darker wings with a single stripe on the wing and the beak was very
prominent. After looking on the internet, I am positive this is a female

Subject: [NHBirds] three more Yellow-billed Cuckoos
I birded the Reservation Road side of Pawtuckaway State Park yesterday with a client and we heard and glimpsed three more Yellow-billed Cuckoos. This brings my personal tally of this species to almost TEN for the last couple of weeks which probably exceeds the number I have heard in the last 5-10 years! All were calling the "kow, kow, kow" call with only an occasional rough "gargle" call.

Nesting birds were most of the highlights:
Red-eyed Vireo- numerous and we found one sitting on a nest, at eye level.Yellow-throated Vireo- two seen and one heard. One very cooperative bird landed on the road about 30 feet from us and leisurely foraged for about a minute.
White-breasted Nuthatch- not normally a significant highlight but a twittering band of 7 or 8 of them all on one tree and seemingly following us down the road were HIGHLY entertaining!
Ovenbird- at least a dozen heard (probably many more) and three seen, without even trying.American Redstart- Numerous but the significant point was one individual that we watched as it sang FOUR different songs including one that, at a distance, was reminiscent of a Cerulean! Alas, we tracked that song down to this well-seen imposter. 
Rose-breasted Grosbeak- one pair building a nest of dry sticks right over the road and not too far from the vireo nest.

As Pam said there are always fun and meaningful birds/behavior to be seen and enjoyed.

Subject: [NHBirds] BW Warbler(s) in Webster
This morning Unity and I explored the powerline crossing at Long Street in
Webster, largely to follow up on a Blue-winged Warbler Bob Quinn and Jane
Kolias reported there earlier this month. We walked south from the road and
soon ended up in a nice sunny spot overlooking a small pond (variously
Little or Clough Pond), where we had good looks at powerline regulars such
as towhees, Prairie Warblers, and Field Sparrows (latter including a recent
fledgling). After a while we wandered further south until we heard the
distinctive "beeeee-bzzzzzz" of a (Blue)-winged Warbler. It perched for a
bit right in the open (confirming it was at least mostly a Blue-winged),
then flew west to the tree line and went silent. As we walked back out we
heard a different winged warbler song closer to the road, this one a more
trill-like z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-bzzz. Again the bird was by appearance a
Blue-winged (distance precluded careful observation), and again it
disappeared shortly thereafter to point unknown.



Our big question was whether the distinctly different songs and distance
between encounters means there are two Blue-winged Warblers here. Obviously
birds can shift between songs and move around (especially if unmated), so in
the absence of further data we erred conservative. That said, the bird is
clearly on territory, so it's worth keeping an eye on this area for possible
signs of nesting. BW Warblers used to nest in southern Concord (Iron Works
Road area) but haven't been there for several years, and this Webster site
is one of the farthest north in the state that I'm aware of (a pair bred in
Lyme last year).



Always *something* fun to discover, even once migration is over.

Subject: [NHBirds] Kettle of Osprey
As I sit here and stake-out last night's Black Vulture roost in Portsmouth
(no sign of the bird since 6 a.m. this morning), I thought I would share an
interesting encounter with some Osprey that I had this afternoon.

I was observing the two active Osprey nest that are inside of the Weapons
Storage Area at the Great Bay NWR. I could clearly see one adult perched on
top of each nest. I then observed 4 birds in the distance circling together
just above tree-top level. My first thought was Turkey Vultures but that
quickly changed as they all turned out to be Osprey. Shortly they were
joined by two other Osprey, one flying in from the East and the other
flying in from the West, both joining the kettle and continuing to circle
upward as a tight group. This behavior went on for about 15 minutes, as
they appeared to be circling over the Stubbs Pond / Harods Cove area.

Then a large flock of small birds started attacking the individual Osprey,
but seemingly focusing on one bird in particular. This pushed the kettle
Inland and more over the weapon storage area and towards the two nests, at
which point both adults on the nests started screeching incessantly. The
kettle soon broke up but 4 of the Osprey continued to loosley circle
around the area and the parking lot, which continued to agitate the nesting
Birds. When I left the nesting Osprey were still screaming very loudly.

The event was quite intersting yet perplexing. I don't ever recall seeing a
kettle of Osprey, even during migration. I don't believe they were over a
bait ball because I never saw one of them dive . Also, I wonder why the
small birds were driving them off.

All in all, just another entertaining afternoon of bird watching.

7:00, no sign of the Black Vulture.

Jim,
I just checked your website, boy did you luck out. I was there Saturday and
my friend and I we stood there for a 2.5 hours and we did see a little
movement in the reeds.
There was a gentleman there who had a digiscope so he adjusted it so that
I could get a look . I didn't get his name...but a great big thank you to
him. I appreciated that.
I came back without any pics, my friend did get a couple of shots which I
have yet to see.
I'm so glad to hear that in an hour you were able to get all this action
and shots.
You are so lucky...
I just hope that place was not 90 some miles away so that I could have gone
again.
Happy Birding.

Yesterday on a trip over to the west side of the state, Michael and I stopped at the Cranberry Ponds to view the Least Bittern. Within minutes one appeared, then two then three, we believe there was a fourth but couldn’t be certain as there was a lot of movement in these birds. It was mid day, comfortable and cloudy 70 degrees and they were extremely active and visible. In total there were 5 of us viewing them at that time. (Hi To Penny , Brenda from Concord , and Wayne Scott!).
Later in the day, after touring the St Gaudens sculpture gardens as we headed home we stopped by Gallop Wildlife Management area and were treated with another bittern, this time an American Bittern, flying and posing.
This is what birding is all about!

Hi,

Continuing least bittern just spotted behind Price Chopper in Lebanon. Jay's instructions to scan the phragmites to the right of the red fire hydrant is spot on. Seen standing at edge of tall grass in water. My vantage point is next to the propane tanks looking through the tops of the reeds.

Wayne gave excellent directions to this site. I recommend scanning the Phragmites just to the right of the red fire hydrant. There is also a very cooperative, fishing Green Heron in the marsh area to keep you entertained while you wait for the Least Bittern.

Subject: [NHBirds] Rare Bird Alert, New Hampshire, June 15, 2020
This is New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, June 15th, 2020.



During the Corona virus outbreak NH Audubon encourages you to enjoy birding
safely; please follow travel and social distance recommendations from state
and federal authorities.



MISSISSIPPI KITES continued to be reported from Madbury Road in Durham, from
Folsom Drive in Newmarket, and in Stratham and Greenland, all during the
past week. They have been successfully nesting in several of these towns for
a number of years.



2 SANDHILL CRANES were seen in Hollis on June 9th, 1 was reported from
Stevens Hill Road in Nottingham on the 12th, and 1 was reported from Sweat
Meadow along the Androscoggin River in Errol on June 9th.



An ICELAND GULL was seen at Hampton Beach State Park on June 9th, and a
BONAPARTE’S GULL was seen there on the 12th.



A LITTLE BLUE HERON was seen near Jenness Beach in Rye on June 9th, and
there was an unconfirmed report of 1 from Adams Point in Durham on the 12th.



Up to 3 LEAST BITTERNS continue to be seen at the Cranberry Ponds located
behind the Price Chopper in West Lebanon and were last reported on June
14th.



A PECTORAL SANDPIPER was seen at Odiorne Point State Park in Rye on June
9th.



A few pairs of PIPING PLOVERS and LEAST TERNS are nesting at Hampton Beach
State Park. Please tread carefully and respect these nesting and foraging
birds. Young PIPING PLOVERS leave the nest right after hatching, are tiny
and difficult to see, and can be easily injured or killed by an errant
footstep, beach ball, or Frisbee.



A RED-NECKED GREBE was seen off of North Hampton State Beach on June 9th.



A RED-HEADED WOODPECKER was seen at the Derryfield Country Club in
Manchester on June 12th, and a pair continues to be seen at Bear Brook State
Park.



7 EVENING GROSBEAKS were reported from Strafford on June 13th, and 2 were
seen in Etna on the 15th.



Up to 12 RED CROSSBILLS were reported from Wapack National Wildlife Refuge,
and 1-2 were reported from Antrim all during the past week. 1 RED CROSSBILL
was reported from Pickering Ponds in Rochester on June 9th.



A few RED CROSSBILLS, WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS, and PINE SISKINS continued to
be reported from the White Mountains and Pittsburg during the past week.



A CERULEAN WARBLER was seen in Sandwich on June 14th, and there was an
unconfirmed report of a YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER in Holderness on the 12th.



A FOX SPARROW was reported from the Mittersill Ski area in Franconia, and a
WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW was reported from the Crawford Path, both in the White
Mountains on June 13th.



20 PURPLE MARTINS were seen from Cross Beach Road in Seabrook on June 13th.



New Hampshire Audubon’s Rare Bird Alert is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank.



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] Bear Brook State Park (7 Species of Woodpeckers including nesting Red-headed!)
Jane and I made a long hike in to check on the nesting Red-headed
Woodpeckers at Bear Brook State Park.  We brought in a spotting scope
and watched the nest hole from a safe distance and watched several food
drops, but the young in the nest hole are still too small to be seen.  A
nice walk although it was mid-afternoon. Remarkably, we had 7 species of
Woodepeckers (and 4 confirmed nesting)!  The 2nd time in less than a
year (and in my life!) that we've had 7 species in a day in NH.  And
Jane found (and almost stepped on!) an Ovenbird nest!!  I think only my
2nd Ovenbird nest:

Subject: Re: [NHBirds] Bird ID help
It's a male Scarlet Tanager that has some yellow and orange feathering.
Either a young bird that hasn't attained full breeding plumage or there are
some adults that show odd pigment resulting in patches of yellow/orange.

I just saw this bird high up in a hemlock tree. I couldn’t find anything like it in my bird books. The head was bright orange/yellow. Wings were black and maybe with white stripes, tail was black with yellow rump. The pics in this link are of the bird facing away and looking back. These are the best I could get before it flew off. Sighting was in Barrington, NH around 4:30 on Sunday 6/14

Hi,

Continuing least bittern just spotted behind Price Chopper in Lebanon.
Jay's instructions to scan the phragmites to the right of the red fire
hydrant is spot on. Seen standing at edge of tall grass in water. My
vantage point is next to the propane tanks looking through the tops of the
reeds.

I guess it’s worth mentioning that the playing of recordings is should be avoided for this State Threatened species, so as not to weary the bird and give as many people as possible a chance to see it.I don’t think it’s necessary anyway as the bird has been quite vocal and, with some patience, visible.

Just use common sense of course, don’t trespass (please don’t pull into or block any of the other driveways or walk in anyone’s yards), be safe (there are cars and trucks using the road).

Subject: [NHBirds] Cerulean Warbler, Sandwich
There is a singing male on Range Rd, roughly in front of #88. Heard and seen well by Tony Vazzano, Bob Ridgely, and myself. Probably hanging out, as this is most likely the same bird I heard but did not see/confirm a few days ago.

Chasing would probably be OK as it’s a rural road, and one could probably pull in down the road about 1/4 mile west (towards Squam Lake) where there are a pair of driveways across from each other, put in for for housing lots that haven’t been developed (not posted... hunters use them in season). Just use common sense of course, don’t trespass (please don’t pull into or block any of the other driveways or walk in anyone’s yards), be safe (there are cars and trucks using the road). The neighbors may be wondering what you’re doing, but they’re all nice folks ‘round here.

Subject: [NHBirds] Near North Boreal Birds
Now that migration is over, I have started hiking more and have been surprised by some of boreal species still around, particularly crossbills and Pine Siskins.

Last Sunday—perhaps appropriately—I hiked into Church Pond Bog where there are breeding Olive-sided Flycatchers and, to me, surprisingly, Palm Warbler although when I checked the Fox & Keith & Fox BIrds of NH, it is one of the few places in NH where PAWA’s have been known to breed.

The following day, several of us walked Old Cherry Mountain Rd. (just north of Crawford Notch) where we had flyover White-winged Crossbills and Pine Siskin as well as 14 breeding warbler species including good numbers of Blackburnian, Canada and Nashville.

On Tuesday, while working on my perennials, I had 5 Red Crossbills. Anecdotally, I had both species of crossbill around my place in Bartlett for most of the winter.

Finally, this morning (Saturday), I hiked the AT from Rte. 302 into the Ethan Pond area and had 3+ White-winged Crossbill including two males. Other boreal species included Pine Siskin, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Boreal Chickadee, Pine Siskin, Purple Finch and Blackpoll Warbler

At all of the places mentioned above, I have had Swainson’s Thrush, Yellow-bellied Flycatchers and Purple Finch.

Complete lists for all locations submitted to eBird.

Subject: [NHBirds] My Washington birds
Kathi and I drove up the Mt Washington Auto Road on Friday, its second day of operation this summer. We made several stops along the way, primarily to check on alpine plants. We noted two American Pipits on the Gulfside Trail near the junction with the Great Gulf Trail. A third Pipit was heard in the Alpine Garden. The winds were light at 20-25 mph. We saw two Bicknell’s Thrush in the krummholtz at about the 4,600 foot level. We also saw some Blackpoll warblers in this habitat. Perhaps the best sighting was a short-tailed weasel carrying one of its newborn kits to a new den site. The road is in excellent shape and always a pleasure to drive.

White Mountain Road and Gate opening status can be found at this link that is kept up to date by volunteers: https://trailsnh.com/reports/Forest-Roads-Gates.php
The two roads of most interest to birders that remain closed are the Jefferson Notch Road and the upper end of the Zealand Road. The Jefferson Notch Road usually opens by the third week in June. The Cherry Mountain Road is now open and has some good birding.

All the trails at the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson and Whitefield are open including the rail trail from Airport Road to Cherry Pond that is being worked on by a crew from the NH Trails Bureau. I think folks will really like the finished product. I saw and heard a Mourning Warbler on Thursday just a five minute walk from the Airport Road Trailhead. On Saturday morning while biking in to Cherry Pond, Kathi and I surprised a momma bear and three cubs at a distance of forty feet. The cubs went up an aspen tree and we backed off to the appropriate social distance of 150 feet for bears. Last night we were serenaded by a whip-poor-will on our deck for about a half hour. He or she was back at 4:30 this morning for another half hour serenade.

There weren’t many people there although a couple of paddle boarders went by just before the loon crossed the lake and may have spooked it.

I need help with this gull please, I actually thought it was a least tern coming at me, ( picture is cropped) small when I got it on the computer I believe it is a Bonaparte's Gull, but my ID also comes up with Black-legged Kittiwake which I realize would be rare.

This morning in the garden I was buzzed (and continue to be) by newly

being a wonderful sight to see. I may not be able to see many birds b/c of
leaves these days, but always a joy to see the results of happily nested
