Subject: Field's Grove this morning
From: Christine Sheridan <cmsbirds AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 25 May 2015 21:22:57 -0400
Highlights of a short visit to Field's Grove in Nashua were two
Semipalmated  Plovers, a Swainson's Thrush, an Eastern Wood-pewee (uncommon
at the Grove)  and a peek at a Warbling Vireo's nest.

I didn't see any shorebirds other than the Plovers, but the water remains
low.

A  Wood Duck hen was shepherding 6 ducklings, and a Great Blue Heron was
stalking the marsh--usually regulars, but scarce here this spring.

Subject: Gallinule in Durham
From: "Dorsey, Kurk" <Kurk.Dorsey AT unh.edu>
Date: Tue, 26 May 2015 01:17:28 +0000
Birders,
I heard the Miricks' Gallinule from Surrey Lane this evening about 8:10 and 
almost immediately heard a second bird which, I concluded, was probably a 
Cooper's Hawk. The Gallinule gave one extended call easily heard from the left 
top of the P that is Surrey Lane, then within 10 seconds there was a second set 
of almost identical calls off to my right, about 100 yards from the first site. 
I presume, perhaps in error, that few Gallinules have studied the art of 
ventriloquy, so it was either a 2d Gallinule, the first one moving really fast 
without me noticing, or something else. When the second bird moved closer (or 
at least its sound, making no assumptions about ventriloquy) and clearly up in 
the trees, I began to doubt that it was a Gallinule (unless, perhaps, it has 
been studying the art of arboreal perching under the ubiquitous Wood Ducks on 
the pond). That forced me to recall other birds that have a similar yelping 
call, as Cornell describes it, which led me to Cooper's Hawk. Or Whistling Tree 
Gallunule. Likely candidates for lumping in either case. 


Also, earlier in the day there was a Fish Crow at Moore Fields, and in the 
evening there were still Woodcocks displaying there.

Subject: Purple Martins, WW Scoters - Wakefield, NH // plus Newmarket kites
From: Kyle Wilmarth <kyle.wilmarth AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 25 May 2015 21:00:30 -0400
Amanda and I spent a majority of our weekend up at Great East Lake in
Wakefield, NH and of course, found some time to squeeze some birding in
while we were there...as well as on our way home with stops in Durham and
Newmarket.  Highlights included:

Great East Lake
- - - - -
Purple Martins - 2 males seen in gourds on morning of 5/24 at this small
colony in Scribner's Brook/Pond attached to Great East Lake.  This is the
3rd year we've had them here.  No females seen but we didn't get to spend a
ton of time out on the water due to the increasing winds and a long paddle
back. https://flic.kr/p/thGKT8

White-winged Scoters - 57 is my highest count from photos - spent all day
Saturday 5/23 in the middle of the lake. They all lifted off at about 7pm
and headed west.  https://flic.kr/p/tzf9XP

Alder Flycatcher - 1
Least Flycatcher - 2
Eastern Wood-Pewee
Great Crested Flycatcher - 1
Blue-headed Vireo - 1
Red-eyed Vireo - 10, at least
Bank Swallow - 1
Barn Swallow - 2
Tree Swallow - X, one in martin gourd
Canada Warbler - 1
Northern Waterthrush - 1
Black-throated Green Warbler - 1
Blackpoll Warbler - 1
Ovenbird - 1
Black-and-white Warbler - 2
Common Merganser - 1, f
Hooded Merganser - 1, f
Belted Kingfisher - 1
Broad-winged Hawk - 1
Bald Eagle - 1 adult
Pine Siskin - 5, probably more - one was seen flycatching from a nearby
dock and at the lake shore.


Durham and Newmarket
- - - - -
On our way home we drove through Durham and caught up with a couple of
Blue-winged Warblers near West Foss Farm: https://flic.kr/p/twKQ8N

From there we decided to try for the kites in Newmarket and got more than
we expected...2 kites copulating! https://flic.kr/p/thDeKZ

Subject: RE: Maybe Hinsdale Cerulean imposter
From: "'Wendy Ward' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Tue, 26 May 2015 00:21:23 +0000 (UTC)
Hi Jack and all on the Bird list. I checked out Wantasticut this morning. I 
only had Black-throated Blues (I searched several of them out) and all but one 
were singing the "zippy" Cerulean imposter song. I actually have found over the 
years birding in southwest NH that most of the Black-throated Blues here sing 
this peppy version (always leaving me to think how the heck will I eve know if 
I have a Cerulean?). I also was here perhaps a week later than you, so if you 
passed through I probably missed (and your Bay-breasted!) I did the mountain 
trail and a section of the river trail. 


It was a great morning of birding regardless of the lack of Cerulean and the 
population explosion of chipmunks announcing my every move. Many birds came out 
on the path and were quite visible. I had fun views of Hermit & Wood thrushes 
and oven birds displaying courtship/pair bonding and I was almost run over a 
few times by Black & White warblers embroiled in territory/female disputes. I 
had tons of Blackburnians, Ovenbirds and Wood Thrushes. Was excited to have 
several Wood Peewees. The place is popular for hiking and I met lots of 
wonderful people. I had 40 species total (see below)  Wendy

Subject: Durham highlights 5/25
From: "Dorsey, Kurk" <Kurk.Dorsey AT unh.edu>
Date: Mon, 25 May 2015 13:34:41 +0000
Birders,
A few highlights from this morning's attempt to avoid yard work:
--Black-billed Cuckoo calling at West Foss Farm, which was inundated with 
mosquitoes 

--Lincoln's Sparrow at the same place
--Alder and Willow FC calling at the same time in the big field at West Foss 
Farm too on my way to 7 flycatchers (so far!) 

--3+ Blue-winged Warblers there on my way to a measly 9 warblers--not even a 
whiff of a migrant yet and no sound of the very odd Blue-wingish type bird that 
was singing there on Thursday 

--Swamp Sparrow, Marsh Wren, and a whole host of nice birds singing at Surrey 
Lane, but no Gallinule for me

Subject: Karner Blue, Concord 5/23
From: Dylan Jackson <jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 24 May 2015 21:57:33 -0400
Yesterday (5/23) evening I took a trip down to Concord to see if I check a 
Whip-poor-will off my list for the year. I went to where I heard them (for the 
first time ever) in Concord at the Karner Blue Butterfly easement. I arrived 
intentionally early (about 1845) to look for other diurnal species that were 
around. I recently read a post by Scott Young describing a Vesper Sparrow he 
has found around the fence of the airport so I decided to see if I could cross 
that off my list too. The walk around the fence was nice, producing lots of 
Towhee and Prairie Warblers (a personal favorite since they seem to be almost 
absent from Sullivan County). As I made my way around to the eastern side of 
the fence I came to the crest of a hill in about the middle of that stretch of 
fence. As I reached the top a chunky sparrow flew passed and perched in a small 
tree on the airport side of the fence. It was the Vesper! It was very 
cooperative and allowed for great looks and o.k. photos. Here are two of my 
best:

https://flic.kr/p/sx4hAj
Later on, at almost exactly 2030, the Whip-poor-wills began singing. There was 
still some light from the sunset behind me and I ended up getting a beautiful 
look at one as it flew (quite slowly) passed me at head level and maybe 20-30' 
in front of me. I was very excited to actually see this species. Unfortunately 
I did not get any photos 


Also,
To any Connecticut River Valley birders: the SORA that I reported near the 
women's prison in Windsor, VT was still there today (5/24) doing its whinny 
calls. In the same area I had two very vocal and un-camera shy Virginia Rail. 
Up the road from that spot I was able to find and photograph my first 
Brewster's Warbler (a Golden-winged/Blue-winged Warbler hybrid for those who 
may not know). I don't want to elaborate too much on out of state birding but 
this location is easy to get to and just minutes over the Vermont border from 
Plainfield. If anyone wants more specific directions and descriptions on where 
to find these birds I'm happy to help so shoot me an email. Couple highlight 
photos from there:

From: Christine Sheridan <cmsbirds AT gmail.com>

Thanks for the unusual songs!

The warbler in question actually was singing from the tip-top of the
deciduous canopy on the day Chris McPherson and I came across it. It never
came down except for a faster-than-the-eye flyby, whereupon it returned to
the top of the trees. A very confusing fellow, till Jeanne-Marie and I got
him to come in closer on Friday.

Several more Black-throated Blues were singing on Friday and we did notice
some other  aberrant songs along that branch of the trail, though nothing
that came close to the "culprit's" renditions.

A couple of years ago, there was a Savannah Sparrow at Cemetery Fields in
Amherst singing a Grasshopper Sparrow-like song.

I've read that there is a large element of learning involved in many
species songs.

Subject: Re: Downy at the humming bird feeder
From: Catherine Fisher <catherineckx AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 24 May 2015 12:14:28 -0400
Hello Bill,

My folks have had, for years, orioles that feed on their hummingbird
feeders; the birds have learned to get the feeder swinging, so that, on the
upstroke (when the nectar gathers on the side the oriole is perched on)
drinking becomes easy.  When the swing of the feeder begins to decrease,
the orioles make a quick "jump" off and then back onto the perch to get it
swinging again and keep doing so until they're sated.  Never tire of
watching them.

Have read that downies will drink from sapsucker drills, so a hummingbird
feeder, isn't out of the question as a food source for this bird, and with
their long tongues, sipping shouldn't be a problem either.

Regarding your observation of three blue jays acting as a family:  this is
something I've observed on occasion, as well, and just assumed that, like
many corvids, blue jays breed cooperatively - with a sibling from last
year's brood helping to raise this year's.  But in looking for references,
I found only one that mentioned cooperative breeding among blue jays - the
Encyclopedia of Life, and that reference had question marks surrounding
it.  Guess I'll pay more attention to the yard blue jays this year and
henceforth!

I've heard some songs of Black-throated Blue Warblers in year's past 
that have sounded nearly identical to Cerulean Warblers....and I've 
heard some Cerulean Warblers (seriously) that have sounded almost 
exactly like a 1) Hooded Warbler and 2) American Redstart!  Always good 
to get a visual ID for some rare birds.  One good hint for these two 
species is to know that Cerulean's mostly sing from very high in the 
canopy, while the Black-throated Blue Warblers sing from very low in the 
understory.

Subject: Big Day - 149 Species!
From: Steve Mirick <smirick AT comcast.net>
Date: Sun, 24 May 2015 12:02:09 -0400
Jane and I attempted a "Big Day" yesterday where we tried to locate as 
many species of birds (by sight or sound) as we could in a single day.  
We started the day at about 2:15 AM in Jefferson, NH and ended the day 
at 8:30 PM in Durham, NH.   We ended the day with 149 species.  This 
total is a bit low for us with this route as the cold and wind killed 
us, especially up north and at Pawtuckaway where bird song was subdued 
and drowned out by the wind.  Our total would have been much lower, but 
we finished very strongly with about 10 new species after 7:30 PM.  My 
high counts for this northern route (pioneered by Pam Hunt) are 170 on 
5/28/97, 164 on 5/23/09, 163 on 5/24/96.

Still a great day.  Highlights included a spectacular dawn walk out to 
the magnificent Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge, the continuing Whimbrel in 
Rye, a continuing Gallinule in Durham, 23 species of warblers including 
Mourning and Tennessee, and a spectacular dusk chorus at Surry Lane 
Marsh in Durham with the appearance of 6 Nighthawks as the last birds of 
the day.

Mostly clear, but very cold up north with a low of 29F and a light wind, 
which made it feel much colder.   The winds increased as we headed south 
and stayed very strong out of the northwest almost all day until just 
before dusk.  The high temperature for the day was about 65F.

Visiting (in chronological order).....Whipple Road in Jefferson - Hazen 
Road in Jefferson/Whitefield - Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge, hiking into 
Big Cherry and Little Cherry - Airport Marsh and Mount Washington 
Airport - Trudeau Road in Bethlehem (Left the north country at 9:15 AM 
with only 71 species) - Karner Blue easement in Concord - Pawtuckaway 
State Park - Exeter WTP - Powderhouse Pond in Exeter - NH Coast from 
south to north, all 18 miles - Pease Tradeport from McIntyre Road - 
Surry Lane Marsh in Durham.

Total steps according to Fitbit - About 25,000.

possible Ceruleans as it was only an audible, not visual, identification.  I 
was listening to recordings on my Birdpod and they were distinctively different 
then the BT Blues and Blackburnians (that I also sometimes confuse them 
with).  I did not play back any calls to try to attract them.  I was also 
somewhat surprised that they were about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way up the mountain, 
where as in CT I've found them right along the river in truely riparian 
habitat.  If anyone else happens to check out that area I'd like to hear their 
opinion.

Subject: Downy at the humming bird feeder
From: William Smith <wmsmith03303 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 24 May 2015 11:21:26 -0400
Saturday morning my wife saw a male downy woodpecker land on the humming bird 
feeder, chasing away the humming bird. He proceeded to work the feeder and 
appeared to be able to drink from it. It was back later, but we forgot to have 
the camera ready. This morning he came in and I remembered that my phone has a 
camera. I got a few shots https://www.flickr.com/gp/bills03303/zf917A not the 
greatest but good enough. 

I saw Carol Foss yesterday and she had never heard of this. Anybody? It could 
be that my yard is a host for odd bird behavior, there seems to be three Blue 
Jays acting as a family this year too.

Subject: Good Orford birds (firsts); Prairie Warbler, Orchard Oriole
From: Jeff MacQueen <jmacqueen AT sau88.net>
Date: Sun, 24 May 2015 09:09:44 -0400
I had a Prairie Warbler this morning in the brushy field across from my
house. I've had them about ten miles east of here along the powerline cut
in Wentworth, but this was an Orford first. There have been a couple of
other sightings of these this year in the Upper Valley, a bit on the north
end of their range, I think. Also notable is the adult Male Orchard Oriole
that has been around on the Richmond Conservation Land. We also believe we
have seen a female here, I'll be watching carefully for evidence of
breeding.

Subject: Blue-winged Warbler walk
From: rwoodward30 AT comcast.net
Date: Sat, 23 May 2015 23:36:25 +0000 (UTC)
When you lead a specialty bird walk, you only need to see that one bird but you 
better see it.  And when twenty-two eager birders show up with expectations 
high, pressure builds.  And when a cold north wind blows and nothing is 
moving, you start to sweat.  And when you have no back up site, you pray.  
After an hour of searching, I swear I saw pitchforks and rotten eggs, but then 
there it was - a Blue-winged Warbler, perched on a branch without a leaf, with 
the sun to our backs.  A life bird for many and a commutation of a life 
sentence for me.  Congratulations to those who got to add this to your list.

Birded the York Pond Road & Fish Hatchery area in Berlin today. Cold and 
blustery conditions made for difficulty in detecting birds. Observed fresh 
dusting of snow on northern Presidential peaks - possibly down to 4,000 ft 
(estimate). Still, saw and/or heard 15 of 20 of the likely warbler species.

Highlights:

Cape May Warbler 1 male heard singing and seen well
Tennessee Warbler 1 male heard singing and seen well
Blackburnian Warbler  several seen and heard
Alder Flycatcher  3 heard singing but not seen
Swainson's Thrush 2 seen foraging on the ground

Unexpected misses - checked usual locations
Northern Waterthrush
Mourning Warbler
Rusty Blackbird
Olive-sided Flycatcher
Evening Grosbeak

Last spring i found a nesting pair of Green Herons in a runoff control pond at 
FoxRun Mall in Newington. Spring foliage exploded a few days later and all 
visibility disappeared. The fence line was thick with poison ivy and could not 
be approached. A near perfect habitat. 


Several months later pass by the pond to find a mechanized work clearing the 
brush down to ground. I am able to observe an photograph the juveniles daily 
activity amongst the carnage. 


Return last week and find this hen sitting on 6 large blue eggs.

Subject: Bald Eagle Near Pennichuck Middle School
From: "'Howard Titus' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sat, 23 May 2015 02:06:31 +0000 (UTC)
I was umpiring a baseball game at Pennichuck Middle School on Wednesday 
afternoon, and during a break between innings we saw a bald eagle flying in a 
direction that would have been from the Merrimack toward the Pennichuck Ponds 
off Manchester Street.  To give a baseball reference, the path was from deep 
right field across center field to deep left center.  My umpiring partner said 
that the repairs to the bridge on Merrimack Street had to be suspended because 
of an eagle's nest nearby.  He claimed to have heard that there are 4 young in 
the nest.  Because the bridge is closed, you cannot drive near the nest, but 
you can walk to the area.

Subject: Cerulean Imposter/Brookline
From: Christine Sheridan <cmsbirds AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 22 May 2015 21:26:24 -0400
Yes, it is true.  The bird singing a "dead ringer" for Cerulean Warbler, a
shy bird frequenting the tip-top of the canopy in an open, deciduous
forest,  is, indeed, a Black-throated Blue.

Jeanne-Marie Maher and I trekked out to the Palmer Conservation Land today.
On our way in, we met a gentleman walking out, who told us he'd thought he
had a Cerulean Warbler, but it turned out to be Black-throated Blue.
Uh-oh....

Upon reaching the bird's "spot" we quickly found the singing bird.  We both
agreed, Cerulean, after listening to playback of both species.

In fact, the bird was lured in by Cerulean song, and posted himself above
us. Eventually, he came out in the open.

The culprit:

His song (not a quality recording)!

airplane flying field and there were many Bobolinks singing in the grass.
I did manage to get a couple of pictures but they were mostly hidden by the
grass or flying.

Tonight around 6 an adult bald eagle was heading south over the Merrimack River 
and made a loop at the confluence of the Nashua and Merrimack River (behind 
Bridge Street) in Nashua. 



The Nashua River is down to the mud on one side and the Killdeer are enjoying 
it again this evening. 



I wonder what they are doing to the Nashua River. One day it is almost drained 
and then the next day or so it is back up.

Stopped by Wantastiquet Mt. on my way up to Lempster for the weekend.  I've 
been wanting to hike there in the spring ever since reading about it in Eric 
Masterson's book and it did not disappoint. (Not being a native of NH, it's a 
great reference for finding new places to go birding along my travels).  In 
addition to the Ceruleans, also had a Bay-breasted Warbler, and FOYs 
 Blackburnian Warbler, Yellow-throated Vireo and E. Wood Pewee.

The Jefferson Notch Road is still closed as of Friday 22 May 2015. This road is 
the highest elevation public highway in NH and is 3,007 at the high point. The 
highway department crew is working on it but reports a soft road bed, some 
washouts and trees across the road. NH DOT hopes to have it open for Fathers 
Day Weekend 20 June 2015 but they indicated it might be as late as 4 July. This 
is primarily due to the long winter with soft roadbed preventing heavy 
equipment to grade it and repair minor washouts.

Subject: Moaning Barred Owl Explained: Three Hungry Mouths to Feed
From: Alfred Maley <alfredmaley AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 22 May 2015 12:22:03 -0400
The reason for the constant complaining by the female Barred Owl in our
yard became clear this morning. The amorphous gray mass visible in the
ceiling mirror in the nest box has dissolved into three baby owlets. No
wonder she wants her mate to bring more food.

Suburban Barred Owls may do well in the wintertime when rodents are thick
at bird feeders, but in the Spring it's hard to hear a mouse for the racket
of leaf blowers and lawn mowers that are the bane of our existence, not to
mention the cause of a generation of hearing-impaired youth that work at
these tasks.

In order to help, I started a rodent trapline yesterday, netting two red
squirrels, two chipmunks and three deer mice. All were greedily consumed
and the moaning has abated considerably.

Three young is a surprise - I've never noted more than two young fledglings
in 15 years. I had come to believe that the box was on the small side (one
square foot of floor area) and I've recently increased it. Maybe a third
youngster gets eaten before the first two fledge.

I've received many unsolicited offers of free chipmunks, but I'm all set.
Also, needless to say, there are NO photographic opportunities.

8am - probably somewhere over the northeast shore of Squam Lake.  They were
kind of distant but luckily I had my scope set up.  When they banked south,
their white specula shone brilliantly. It's interesting that both the
scoters and the Brant (on Wednesday) settled on a southern (or southwest
for the Brant) flight path.  Intimidated by the White Mountains?

There was also a Blackpoll Warbler singing earlier today.

Yesterday, around dusk, I was looking for migrants from the back porch. I
saw two separate Common Nighthawks - the first pretty distant but the
second flew right over the house, peenting. Both were headed northeast.
There was a singing Tennessee Warbler in the morning.

Good birding,

They have been draining the Nashua River today and some parts behind Bridge 
Street & Walden Pond Drive are completely down to the mud. 



I could only see three killdeer foraging in the mud but could heard more 
nearby. They were quite vocal, right up until 8:35 tonight. 



A couple of Baltimore Orioles were singing the night away down by the river.


A good size beaver was eating his way up the banking on the other side.

Subject: Woodcock Family takes a Walk
>> 5/21/2015 13:00

Yesterday evening around 7 PM I saw near my house an American Woodcock leading 
four chicks across the road to a patch of heavy woods. It walked slowly with a 
pumping up and down body action as the chicks tagged along. I thought this 
pumping action was a used as part of the mating display,  but apparently it 
serves other purposes as well. Now pay attention children, I am going slow, 
follow me closely as we cross this road. All did but one who after crossing got 
distracted and checked out the road's verge. Mom stopped and just visible from 
the shrubs called softly until he came along, and then the group disappeared 
into the woods.

Birders,
I suspect that some of you have noticed that this very productive spot has been 
posted No Trespassing this spring. Back in April when I saw the signs, I wrote 
to the trustee for the landowner, Surrey Lane Land Trust, to request permission 
for birders to have access, but I have had no response. I learned today from 
someone in the neighborhood that the lots along the road/pond are owned by the 
association of homeowners on Surrey Lane. He didn't know what had prompted the 
signs. 


On top of that, birding from the road there has been pretty unproductive--no 
Marsh Wrens, Swamp Sparrows, or rails/bitterns in my 3 visits this month. Today 
only Warbling Vireo indicated that it was a wet area. 


I picked up 70 species this morning at various spots around Durham from 
5:15-6:15 and 9-12:15. The highlight was a Yellow-billed Cuckoo, but my FOY 
Willow Flycatcher was nice; only 14 species of warblers, nothing too unusual.

All of Heidi's Baltimores must be at my house. We've had 3 adult males, one 
juvenile male and one female. We don't put oranges out any longer because the 
Orioles have ignored them for years. They used to eat the oranges (especially 
the females) and the jelly but now they just eat the jelly. With the help of 
this male Cardinal (who alternates between the jelly and the seed feeders), 
they go through a lot of jelly!

I'll try putting out oranges and see if the Red-bellied Woodpecker that hangs 
around but doesn't come in will visit if there are oranges. Thanks for the tip.

 Christine Sheridan and I visited Palmer Conservation land in Brookline, NH
today after a productive morning at Monson Center which included my first
Moose for Hillsborough County!  While walking the rail trail heading
towards Milford we encountered an interesting warbler song that required
investigation.  After at least an hour of constant singing we are confident
this bird is a Cerulean Warbler.  We each had very brief views of the
elusive bird as it moved from the tree tops, and on one occasion had a
fly-by response to the Cerulean Warbler calls from our cell phones.  I was
able to manage a recording of the bird’s song, the bird is singing at the
very beginning of the recording and again at the end.

Sorry for the 2nd post - but I have to share the rest of the story.  The
Brant flock was first seen by Bob Ridgely flying over Rt 113 in North
Sandwich at about 5:20am. He counted (more carefully than my rough
estimate) 45 birds.  He noted they were heading in my general direction...
about 20 minutes later there they were! It was wonderful to experience this
species, not only away from the coast, but as a unique and exciting
sighting for the Lakes Region Audubon Birdathon/Bloomathon today.

Good Birding,

A couple of folks asked when to visit. Well, it seems better to capture images 
early morning, between 6 and 8. Best spot is from the edge of the pond--just 
make sure to give way to  trucks and equipment. Park off the road near the 
gate, so that trucks can enter, or in the designated areas near the main 
office. And I wish you much success--but bring some patience, too. 


I managed to snap a few of this reticent little cutie (though I must admit I 
spent 10 hours on Sunday with little to show for it--perhaps on Sundays it 
likes to sit in and watch TV).

After 1-1/2 hr of watching, the Common Gallinule made a brief appearance at 
5:10 PM. 

It was foraging along the shore on the south side of the pond near a point of 
vegetation extending into the pond. 

It walked a bit, the flew a bit further; he did this 3 times which took all of 
30 seconds & then gone into the reeds.

Ironically I will be at the coast with a birding group most of the next week 
but as Rob knows, and other recent reports indicate, Brant is another rare 
possibility. More regular but still uncommon local migrants such as 
Black-crowned Night-Heron can be seen/heard too. 



And for those who have enjoyed Rob's August nighthawk watches they too will be 
migrating north over the next week+ and we have very little data on spring 
migrant nighthawks in Concord.

Subject: [NHBirds] scoter migration watch


 
  
After reading Bob Quinn's article on White-winged Scoter migration in the most 
recent issue of NH Bird Records, I thought it would be worthwhile to set up a 
scoter migration watch in Concord. The goal will be to see if we can find any 
flocks of scoters migrating overhead. It may be a long shot but I think its 
worth trying. 

   
   
   
There are different ways we could do this but to start small and basic I am 
going to look from the top of the Capital Commons parking garage on Storrs 
Street. Bob's article says the peak week is May 18-25. Tomorrow is no good so I 
am going to be on the garage starting Tuesday and every night through May 25 
from 7:30 pm until dark. If you are interested is expanding the frontiers of 
knowledge join me, bearing in mind we may see absolutely nothing.

Subject: Western Palm Warbler, Lake Sunapee
From: Dylan Jackson <jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 20 May 2015 09:42:33 -0400
Yesterday morning (519) I was working on a property on Lake Sunapee which is 
along Poor Rd in New London. Poor Rd runs out along the peninsula that closes 
off Herrick's Cove from the main portion of the Lake. This area has provided 
some good birds for me over the last few years including but not limited to 
migrant warblers like Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, and Orange-crowneds. Migrating 
waterfowl and other water birds like Black Scoters, Long-tailed Ducks and 
Red-necked Grebe. It's a spot that's also provided me with amazing views of 
some Bald Eagles as well. It continues to provide interesting sightings, 
yesterday in the form of a western Palm Warbler. This bird was up in a birch 
tree foraging along side some YRWA. This bird showed a mostly pale brownish 
breast with some fine streaking. Yellow around the throat and a reddish top of 
the head. The undertail coverts of its tail were yellow and underneath the tail 
was dark with the tips of the outer tail feathers being white. This bird also 
pumped it's tail as it moved about the tree. I did get some photos but they're 
too poor to see the bird in any detail. Still a cool bird to find this late. 


Note: Poor Rd is not a private road but there is no where to view the Lake 
itself from the road. My job gives me exclusive access to a lot of private 
property around the lake so I wouldn't recommend this location as a place to 
look for migrating waterfowl/water birds. However, the forest along the road is 
delightful and in the spring can be filled with all sorts of Warblers.

The Common Gallinule is still present at Exeter WWTP, exactly where previously 
reported. As of 5 minutes ago it was feeding along the edge of the mud pond to 
the right of the gate.

At 5:40am this morning, a flock of ~50 Brant flew relatively low over my
yard (just up the hill from Sandwich Bay), heading roughly southwest. I
could hear their low calls. It looked like they were fighting the wind.
Squam Lake and Winnipesaukee area birders might want to keep an eye out.

We had a Blue-winged Warbler singing a Golden- winged Warbler type song near 
the parking lot for Pickering ponds this morning. 


Instead of singing the typical EEE Burrrr song,
The song was Zee zaa zaa (a shorter version of Zee zaa zaa zaa)

We had a clear look at the bird which was an adult male Blue-winged with bright 
yellow crown and bold white wing bars.

Subject: Wood Duck With Young Circumnavigates House to Avoid Hungry Barred Owl
From: Alfred Maley <alfredmaley AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 19 May 2015 19:45:17 -0400
One of the Wood Ducks nesting in the yard fledged seven young today, about
8 A.M. Instead of heading directly off to the Sawmill Swamp past the Barred
Owl nest box she decided that it would be more prudent to take her
ducklings on a tour around the house to avoid the hungry, moaning owl. She
escaped unscathed with her progeny.

Feeling sorry for the hungry owl, I tried placing a recently demised
chipmunk on a mini-ratla near the nest box and voila it quickly
disappeared. Another chipmunk, same result. I've now found a way to keep
the owl quiet. She only moans when she or the kids are hungry. I only hope
the supply of chipmunks lasts until the young fledge.

Decided to try for the Gallinule (for the 4th time) after dinner tonight and 
met up with Paul Lacourse who had been looking for it as well. As we were 
talking, the bird flew across the pond, afforded us a good look and disappeared 
into the reeds. Approximate time we saw the bird was 650 PM.

There are about 15 brant currently across from the Beach Plum )North Hampton 
State Park). 

I also had a flock of about 200 seen from ragged neck about a half hour ago. 
While watching them they all picked up as though somebody set off an alarm and 
flew north. Drove north and tried to refind them and had no luck.
