Has anyone else noticed an influx of American Robins this week?  I counted
at least 30 in a single crab apple tree in my yard on Tuesday, and today
they seem to be everywhere-a rough estimate is about 100 birds in the
neighborhood this afternoon!

Subject: Car. Wren, Saw-whet Owl, Lake Sunapee Area
From: jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2016 21:31:48 -0500
After work today I stopped by River Road in Sunapee just after 2pm. It wasn't 
the dramatic show of diversity it can be sometimes, but I came up with a couple 
of decent birds. The most notable being the return of the Carolina Wren which 
has been absent here for over a month. Initially, I heard the bird making its 
rattling call. It then came into view and even sang before flying off towards 
High Street. Also present was the continuing Song Sparrow. Oddly I photographed 
both brush dwellers in perches high up in the trees.

Please excuse the poor cell phone shots.

Today's most exciting same came only minutes ago on my way into New London 
(8:24pm). I slowed down to around 30mph as I made my way into downtown New 
London on Route 11 and as I passed the entrance to Cricenti's Bog a Northern 
Saw-whet Owl flew across the road right through my headlights. My last sighting 
in the area on January 16th was at 50+mph and wasn't nearly the same view I had 
tonight at the slower speed. I got a beautiful look at this bird as it passed 
flying into the bog. It's really wild how many Saw-whet observations I've had 
already this year. It seems like it's definitely worth checking out the bog at 
night sometime soon.

Subject: common goldeneye "head-throw-kick" on the Nashua River
From: "'Nancy' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2016 11:48:14 -0500
I just watched, through my scope, about 4 or 5 male common goldeneyes perform 
their “head-throw-kick.” I have never witnessed that before. 

It is quite entertaining—although the females didn’t seem as interested as 
I was. 


There are also a few pair of common mergansers on the Nashua River.

The Eastern Towhee was still present at the fields behind the Post Office on
Loudon Rd. in Concord today.

It was along the fence line just to the left (east) of the kiosk at around
1:00pm.

Subject: Clay-colored Sparrow, Salem
From: Kyle Wilmarth <kyle.wilmarth AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 9 Feb 2016 10:49:57 -0500
This morning while driving through the Rockingham Park parking lot I
noticed a group of small birds from a distance on the ground. They were
foraging at the edge of the snow piles that are along the fence against Rt
38 (the road between the mall and Rockingham Park).

Suspecting they were maybe Horned Lark or Snow Bunting, I went over to
investigate and they turned out to be sparrows - about 10 American Tree
Sparrows with a few Juncos, a couple of Song Sparrows and was very
surprised to see a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW in the mix!

Another good bird for Rockingham Park and my first for town!

Subject: [NHBirds] Creeper at feeders, Sunapee


Today while casually watching my bird feeders from my living room window, I 
noticed a bird fly in and land at the base of the truck of the tree I have 
my feeders hanging from. I was surprised to see it was a Brown Creeper. This 
is the first Creeper I've had at my feeders. It seemed to be moving from the 
tree trunk to the ground below the suet feeders, foraging on chunks of duet 
dropped by other birds. Although I know Creepers do occasionally visit 
feeders, it's definitely a new experience for me. I took some pictures that 
are poor because of my distance and shooting through the window, but I can't 
help but admire this birds camouflage against the bark in this photo:

Not much else of note today besides a female Purple Finch that continues 
amongst the Goldfinches on Meadow Road in Newport.

Subject: birding north and then all the way north
From: Charlie Nims <charlie.nims AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2016 19:51:53 -0500
On Saturday morning, I hiked the Crawford Path to Mt. Pierce (Clinton) where 
there were more hikers—I tallied 92—than birds. But there were a few 
species highlighted by Pine Siskins and Red Crossbills. Over the past ~10 days, 
on four occasions I have had crossbills along Rte. 302 between Bartlett and 
Twin Mountain; some have been Red Crossbills but not sure if any White-winged 
Crossbills as I could not always stop nor get good views. 


Saturday afternoon, I had a surprise at my place in Bartlett with 2 Pine 
Siskins, first of the year at my feeder, and a flock of 40-50 Bohemian 
Waxwings, a new yard bird for me. My guess is that they were passing 
through—only a few fruit trees here--although they hung around for a while. 


Sunday, I went all the way . . . north. I drove to the Canadian border and the 
birding was very good for winter specialties, especially from Second 
Connecticut Lake to the border. Species seen included: both redpolls in 
reasonable numbers, a few Common Redpoll, 4+ Pine Grosbeak, LOTS of Pine 
Siskins, many Purple Finch, a Boreal Chickadee, 3 adult Bald Eagles and the 
ubiquitous Red-breasted Nuthatch among others. A full list with photos has been 
posted to eBird.

The New Hampshire Bird Records publication has news and articles all about 
birds and birding in New Hampshire. Volunteers are the heart of the publication 
and we have two openings in the team - see below. If you are interested, please 
contact, Becky Suomala, rsuomala AT nhaudubon.org, 603-224-9909 x309. To read a 
sample article or learn more about New Hampshire Bird Records, go to 
www.nhbirdrecords.org . 


Field Notes Editor
Select and gather all materials for the New Hampshire Bird Records Field Notes 
feature: select stories (includes reviewing the NHBirds e-mail list for 
material), contact authors or compile written material, collect photos and 
captions. Familiarity with birds and birding helpful. 


Season Editor
The Season Editor for New Hampshire Bird Records reviews the eBird reports for 
their season, writes the summaries of the highlights and determines the reports 
to be published. The job requires experience birding in New Hampshire, good 
writing skills, familiarity with eBird and Excel, and the ability to meet 
deadlines. Subscriber to the NH Birds e-mail list important; active birder and 
reporter to eBird preferred.

Subject: Rte 16 Birds (Cowbird, Thousands of Bohemians, Red Crossbills)
From: Benjamin Griffith <bgriffith AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 7 Feb 2016 22:03:08 -0500
Jason Lambert, Lauren Kras and I headed up north in hopes of finding some
of the nice irruptive birds that have been around this winter.  The most
unusual bird of the day was a male Brown-headed Cowbird in downtown
Gorham.  This was somewhat overshadowed by the largest Bohemian Waxwing
flocks I've ever seen, as well as great views of Red Crossbills and Evening
Grosbeaks.

Lauren and I both posted a bunch of photos to Flickr:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/lkras
https://www.flickr.com/photos/bgriffith

Highlights:

Barrow's Goldeneye - 1 adult male with four Commons, now in Bragg's Bay

Bald Eagle - 1 adult in Errol was the only one today

Common Raven - 18 at the meat pile in Dummer

Bohemian Waxwing - 2000+! Several small flocks including 77 in Jackson.
Two VERY LARGE flocks, one in Gorham and one in Berlin.  I counted 793
waxwings in a photo of the Gorham flock in which one of the trees that
contained birds was nearly completely obscured.  The Berlin flock appeared
approximately twice as large, and a photo of a small portion of the flock
contained 353 birds.

Brown-headed Cowbird - adult male in downtown Gorham.  First noted by the
Hydro Station, later relocated down the road.

Purple Finch - Large Numbers throughout.

Red Crossbill - 18 total.  All along 16 between Pontook Reservoir and the
Maine state line.  At least 2 call types represented.

Pine Siskin - Large numbers throughout.

Evening Grosbeak - Approximately 100 along Chickwolnepy Road, constantly in
earshot along the road, with a large flock of at least 70 birds at the base
of the road and a smaller flock at the feeders further up the road.

While out in the yard playing in the snow with the kids I was shocked to
find a Nashville Warbler on my suet feeder, ran for the camera and was
fortunate enough to get a few ID photos.  I didn't see any tail wagging
behavior

What is undoubtedly the same EASTERN TOWHEE that was reported in December and 
counted on the CBC is still present behind the shopping plaza that houses the 
post office on Loudon Road. You will find it in dense tangle with a few 
cardinals. A rare winter record for around here but considering how mild this 
winter has been, like today for example, its not too surprising.

I hit the coast and parts of the Great Bay and Pease today. I figured the
snowfall from yesterday might bring some birds out of the woodwork. Robins
were almost everywhere. In general, birds were pretty easy to find with
raptors conveniently perched and pockets of activity all along the coast.

Subject: North Country highlights
From: Rebecca <rsuomala2 AT comcast.net>
Date: Sat, 6 Feb 2016 23:35:54 +0000 (UTC)
We birded Trudeau Rd. in Bethlehem and Chickwolnepy Rd. in Milan today. Both 
places were busy with some great birds. Highlights: 


Trudeau Rd.
Black-backed Woodpecker - 1 male drumming 
White-winged Crossbill - 11 at least, difficult to count because small numbers 
were flying around everywhere we walked; great views of 2 females and several 
males sitting on the tops of trees singing away 

Red Crossbill - 2 separate flyovers
Pine Siskins - small groups flying around, landing, and chattering away 
everywhere 

Purple Finch - 4

Chickwolnepy Rd.
Evening Grosbeak - 21
Red Crossbill - 2 immature males picking up grit in the road, great views
Black-backed Woodpecker - 1 females feeding on a small tree by the crossbills
Purple Finch - 4
Pine Siskin - 13 at a feeder

Red-breasted Nuthatches were numerous and noisy in both locations.

We were lucky to see 2 Ruffed Grouse feeding in a crabapple tree on Rt. 116 in 
Jefferson just west of Mud Pond entrance. 


We had a large flock of waxwings flying over Rt. 16 between Gorham and Berlin 
that were likely Bohemians but we couldn't relocate them to confirm by the time 
we turned around to chase them.

A little while ago a pair of eagles were in two separate trees overlooking the 
Merrimack. One was calling to the other They eventually took off, heading north 
over the river. 


Yesterday, after the storm, I was surprised to see a belted kingfisher sitting 
on a bracnh overlooking the Nashua River near where it meets the Merrimack. It 
sat there for about 15 minutes then I could hear it chattering, or whatever it 
is called, in the trees.

Date: Sat, 6 Feb 2016 10:21:56 -0500
I led a Tin Mountain Birding group on Friday 5 February 2016 for a North 
Country tour and we found 140 Bohemian Waxwings, 10 Cedar Waxwings and a lone 
Evening Grosbeak in Whitefield, NH. The location was along Route 3 about a half 
mile north of the center of town and just before the NH State Liquor Store 
where you can park and safely search for them in the surrounding trees. The 
waxwings were feeding on a crab apple tree of which there are many in this 
town. 


The following were seen in Vermont. We continued north to Lancaster then 
crossed the border into Vermont and made our way to Granby, VT and the Victory 
Basin Wildlife Management Area. We spotted one Northern Shrike near the village 
of Granby and a second Northern Shrike in Victory at Damon’s Crossing. We 
also saw 2 Red Crossbills, 4 White-winged Crossbills, 2 Gray Jays, 50 Purple 
Finch (mostly females) and about 70 Pine Siskins. there was no snow 
accumulation in the North Country or NEK from the recent storm that affected 
southern NH. One Mink and several Red Squirrels were the only mammals noted.

Subject: Ruby-Crowned Kinglet, Hollis
From: Christopher McPherson <cmcpherson687 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 4 Feb 2016 17:50:00 -0500
A Ruby-crowned Kinglet continues at Woodmont Orchard in Hollis, this bird
was seen with a group of 7 Eastern Bluebirds on the east side along what's
now being called Sandy Hill Dr. (Development side).  There were also 1000
Robins feeding on apples (between 3:30 and 4:15) in the upper orchard
(above Sandy Hill Dr.), they appeared to be staging here before heading
south west.

Subject: Salem Birds 2015 - highlights
From: Kyle Wilmarth <kyle.wilmarth AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 4 Feb 2016 17:04:20 -0500
This may be a bit overdue since we're over a month into the new year, but
back in January Amanda and I thought it would be fun to put together a 'Top
10 Birding Highlights' for our local Salem patch. We have a lot of fun
scouring our little local spots to try and get new birds for the town list
and wanted to share this with you all - and perhaps inspire others to hit
their local patches more!

A link to the write up with many photos and some short write-ups:
http://ow.ly/XXLMA

The post we put together is somewhat 'bittersweet' because we recently
moved out of Salem.  We've gone from one of those weird southeast corners
of that state to the other...Plaistow!  This doesn't mean we've abandoned
our Salem patch, we just may have to work a little harder to finally reach
200 species!

Subject: Black vulture in love?
From: Evelyn Nathan <evynathan AT comcast.net>
Date: Wed, 3 Feb 2016 16:10:50 -0500
I worked at Main Street School in Exeter today, and drove past Lincoln Str. 
School 3 times AM and PM. The BV was there on the big chimney each time, 
finally looking droopy in the cold rain at 1:00. I went past him again at 2:4, 
but this time there he had been joined by another vulture, a TV, she was 
preening and he was puffing out his gorget and admiring her. I hope their 
babies are beautiful. 

He may be guarding the dumpster at Lincoln Street. Those kids throw out an 
awful lot of good food at lunch! Hope you can all see this.

Date: Wed, 3 Feb 2016 12:12:09 -0500
A beautiful day on the coast , seemed more like spring than February. Was able 
to see the now "resident' black vulture (who seems nearly inanimate), as well 
as catch up with the ruby crowned kinglet, and even get photos of a thick 
billed Murre as it traveled down from Concord point. The highlight was watching 
it suddenly "paddle" rather than fly offshore much like a puppy would, a 
fascinating experience. 

Was also struck by the lack of purple sandpipers, sanderling, and with three 
stops the Glaucous gull (who also had been mysteriously missing on two visits 
on Saturday)

Subject: Siskin, Grouse, New London
From: jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com
Date: Tue, 2 Feb 2016 20:39:59 -0500
Today, my work brought me to Shaker Street in New London. A coworker and I were 
on our way to the clients home when suddenly a Ruffed Grouse ran into the road 
in front of us, narrowly avoiding getting hit by our truck by turning the other 
direction and flying back into the woods. 


When we arrived we began our work. There was quite a bit of bird activity, but 
the most notable sighting came in the form of a single Pine Siskin. This bird 
flew over quite high above the property, calling the entire time it passed. 
This is my first for the state this year and my first Siskin sighting since 
December.

Subject: Thick-billed Murre
From: Joe Scott <joexcski AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 2 Feb 2016 19:52:43 -0500
At low tide there was a thick-billed murre in the water off Seabrook Beach.
It was in fairly close so it was easier to identify and appreciate. A
common loon noticed it too, and tried to drive off the murre.

Other notable birds, not rare but appreciated, included the Glaucous Gull
at Seabrook, Red-necked Grebes everywhere, a Kingfisher in Rye Harbor, and
a pair of Razorbills at Rye SP.

We got to Lincoln Street School in Exeter at 3:30, and the Black Vulture
was back on the chimney. Must be like the seat warmer on my car. :)

Yesterday, between working and one stop on my way home, I came up with a couple 
of interesting sightings around the Lake Sunapee area. Highlights are as 
follows: 


Both on the Newbury and Sunapee sides of the Lake I had several COMMON RAVENS. 
Two in Newbury and one over Sunapee Harbor. 


In Oakledge, a private community in Sunapee, I had two RUFFED GROUSE foraging 
around a clients driveway. 

https://flic.kr/p/Dxs1Ls
https://flic.kr/p/DFxwQb

After work, I swung by River Road in Sunapee. The male BELTED KINGFISHER 
continues seen and heard over the small stretch of river there. The continuing 
SONG SPARROW was also present in its usual spot in the bittersweet mixed with 
House Sparrows.

Subject: Red Crossbills and Bohemian Waxwings
From: Joe Scott <joexcski AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 1 Feb 2016 16:33:29 -0500
The two female red crossbills that Bob Crowley reported two days ago are
still in the same location. They are picking grit on the shoulder of Rt 113
less than 100 yards south of the start of Evans Notch.

The Bohemian Waxwings that he found in Stow, Maine seem to have moved up
the road to Chatham, NH. Today they were in an apple tree on Rt 113, about
a mile south of the Crossbills.

If anyone is coming for these birds, start in Fryeburg, Maine and head
north on Rt 113 next to the Post Office. The road runs in and out of both
Maine and New Hampshire, but if you stay on the road for 20.5 miles you
will reach the winter road closure at the start of Evans Notch. Today,
that's where the birds are.

Subject: Black Vulture
From: Terri Fratus <mizpah3149 AT comcast.net>
Date: Mon, 1 Feb 2016 16:24:53 -0500
The Black Vulture was on the chimney at the Lincoln Street school at 2 PM 
today. I could clearly see the black head from the sidewalk in front of the 
school. I didn't want to go on school property with the kids still there but I 
hope to see it tomorrow afternoon and get a nice picture.

Subject: Additional note on the Exeter vulture!
From: Steve Mirick <smirick AT comcast.net>
Date: Mon, 1 Feb 2016 11:45:45 -0500
During our Superbowl of Birding adventure, Paul Lacourse had been 
keeping track of a Turkey Vulture roost in his mobile home park off 
Linden Street in Exeter.  He had been monitoring every night for about 4 
or 5 nights and had been watching about 14-16 Turkey Vultures come in 
each evening and leave each morning, but NO Black Vulture had been 
observed in this roost.  Sadly, the night before Superbowl Saturday, the 
birds decided to sleep elsewhere!  We were hoping to put a flashlight on 
a bird and get the 5 points plus the 3 bonus points at exactly 5:00 AM 
on the day of the event.  Lauren's team had the same idea for a roost in 
Newmarket!

On the day of Superbowl Saturday, we tried anyway at 5:00 AM at the 
roost off Linden Street, but as expected no birds.  So we then tried 
nearby by shining a flashlight in the tall pines off Winter Street in 
Exeter where we think they may have roosted sporadically in the past.  
No luck.  And then finally, at 5:15 AM we figure we'd try the infamous 
chimney on the Lincoln Street School where vultures hang out somewhat 
regularly.  We got there and observed a dark blob on the top of the 
chimney.  I crept close to the school and shined my bright flashlight on 
the blob (thankfully no police drove by!). Couldn't see a head or its 
feet, but definitely a vulture!  We phoned it in as a TURKEY VULTURE, 
which was what we expected it to be, but we were too late to get the 3 
bonus points.

Given the fact that this Black Vulture is not joining the other Turkey 
Vultures at their roost spot (why?), and that it has a hankering for 
this chimney, it now seems rather likely that we were looking at a Black 
Vulture and NOT a Turkey Vulture!

The birdwatcher's creed for attempting to identify a fleeting glimpse of 
a potentially rare bird is (and should be) "When you hear hoofbeats, 
think of horses not zebras".  But perhaps we can now re-write this adage 
to state "When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses but CONSIDER zebras"!

P.S.  We later had at least 2 or 3 unambiguous Turkey Vultures later in 
the morning in the Exeter area!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed a new wildlife refuge 
for parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New 
Hampshire and New York - Great Thicket National Wildlife Refuge. The 
refuge would protect shrublands an species such as New England 
Cottontail, Woodcock and Blue-winged Warbler.  The comment period is 
open until March 4. Please weigh in with your comments and support!

Perhaps you can share the general area (road name) in which it was seen so
people can keep an eye out for the bird as it flies around.

Subject: The Twitchers in the Super Bowl
From: Rebecca <rsuomala2 AT comcast.net>
Date: Mon, 1 Feb 2016 01:54:34 +0000 (UTC)
The Twitchers in the Rye had a very fun day in the Superbowl of Birding 
yesterday. We had a total of 59 species (our average over the last 8 years) and 
95 points (average 100). We had no major misses (at least for our Rye 
territory) and a few surprises. Four species were new for the Twitchers, one of 
which was a 5-pointer! The team decided we did ok despite our team captain 
being away. 


As usual, the morning was busy adding new species at every turn but we had to 
work hard in the afternoon to scrounge up any new species. We spent the whole 
day in the town of Rye, as is our tradition. Here are some of the highlights. 


Mute Swan - not present in the morning but appeared at Eel Pond in the late 
afternoon 

Greater Scaup - a great find by Andrea, never a given for us
Red-throated Loon - we missed it last year
Turkey Vulture - our only 5-point bird and a first for the Twitchers
Bald Eagle - 2 spotted by Peg circling overhead
Bonaparte's Gull - 1 at Odiorne Pt., a first for us
Razorbill - 2 flew by and we all saw them!
Great Horned Owl - at Parson's Rd. marsh, never a guarantee
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - at West Rd., a first for us
Yellow-rumped Warbler - 1 at Odiorne Pt., a first for us
Common Grackle - 1 at the Wentworth golf course, we've only had it one other 
year 


Thanks to those who sponsored us and helped us raise money for New Hampshire 
Bird Records and NHeBird. A full write up of our adventures will be sent to our 
sponsors and up on the New Hampshire Bird Records web site, 
www.nhbirdrecords.org. 


Becky Suomala for all the Twitchers - Andrea Robbins, Pat Myers, Peg Ackerson, 
Pam Hunt (with us in spirit from sunny Florida)

Subject: NH Coast & Exeter (Thick-billed Murres, Brant, Black Vulture, Fish Crow)
From: Steve Mirick <smirick AT comcast.net>
Date: Sun, 31 Jan 2016 19:32:55 -0500
A rather relaxing day today (and a very warm one!) along the coast and 
into Exeter.  We managed to see lots of nice birds including 5 we missed 
yesterday!

BRANT - One close flyby heading south off Rye Ledge.

Black Guillemot - 5 with three off Seabrook Beach and two off Little 
Boar's Head.  Where were they yesterday?

Razorbill - 8+ with one fairly close off Ragged Neck in Rye with Becky & 
Zeke.

Thick-billed Murre - TWO off Pulpit Rocks in Rye.  Amazing how 
Thick-billed Murres just recently showed up on the coast.  This seems to
generally be the case in New Hampshire with relatively few November and 
December sightings, but increases in sightings in mid to late
January/February.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/40298884 AT N06/24645503791/in/dateposted-public/lightbox/ 


Iceland Gull - One nice adult on the ice on Eel Pond with lots of other 
gulls.

Purple Sandpiper - ZERO.  Again!  Remarkably few shorebirds along the 
coast recently!  Normally Dunlin and Sanderlings are hard to find, but
Purples are relatively easy.  Not for us this weekend!

And later in Exeter, thanks to a phone call from Davis Finch:

BLACK VULTURE - One sitting atop the Lincoln Street School.  Only my 3rd 
record for NH!  Thanks to Davis Finch for getting the word out on this.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/40298884 AT N06/24112168083/in/dateposted-public/lightbox/ 


FISH CROW - One calling across the street.  Although it is somewhat 
regular locally in winter in extreme southern NH (Salem, Plaistow), it 
is very rare elsewhere and is actually my first January record for New 
Hampshire.

Three male Ring-necked Ducks were observed in Laconia this morning, next to
Eagar Island, located off Water Street, behind what was formerly the Laconia

Attempts to find the Lakeport Dickcissel were a failure.

Yesterday was a wonderfully warm day for the Super Bowl -especially compared 
with the previous winter’s event. 

A great day with spectacular company; Greg Tillman, Christopher McPherson, and 
Eric Masterson and I joined forces to have a fun day of birding as Team “Wry 
Knot”. 

While preparing for the event, Michael, my non-birding husband adapted the song 
“Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple for our event. This was shared last 
evening, with the teams at the Super Bowl roundup. 


Here it is.  Hope you enjoy it,  (amazingly like the original verses too)

Many thanks for my team mates, and our fabulous competition for making this a 
grand event.

Subject: Superbowl Results - 88 species (198 points)
From: Lauren Kras <lauren.kras AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 31 Jan 2016 10:29:16 -0500
Jason Lambert, Ben Griffith, and I have done the Joppa Flats "Superbowl of
Birding" together twice before (in 2010 as the "Granite State Bird Watch"
with Jessie Knapp , and in 2015 as the "Northern Flea Flickers" with Aiden
Moser - but both Jason and Ben have also been on other teams over the
years).  This year we teamed up with Robbie and Robert Prieto to form the
Belichukars. Anyone interested in seeing details on how the competition
works should see Steve Mirick's post from the 4th and Longspurs).

In both the prior years we've competed we've turned up the Joppa Cup (prize
for overall best point total) - winning with 164 points (83 species) in
2010 and 205 points (86 species) in 2015.

This year we managed to turn up a species high of 88 (plus 2 un-shared
species that don't count for the competition) and a total of 198 points to
secure the Joppa Cup once again! It was the closest win yet eking out only
1 species and 6 points more than the Blue-gray Passcatchers.

For comparison even with only 164 points in 2010 we won by approximately 15
points and had 8 more species than other team recorded and in 2015 we won
by 27 points (although we only had 1 species more than the next highest
species total).

Overall we had a very good morning and a great day. We missed many staked
out birds but fortunately our second locations for a few were productive
and in spots where we missed one thing another bird frequently made up for
it (for example we missed White-crowned Sparrow which is worth 4 points at
Great Bay Farm but found our only Northern Flicker which was worth 3).

I compiled a spreadsheet showing each species we recorded, the point value,
# of locations we had the species (during the competition and scouting) for
species of interest, and the location we first recorded the species during
the competition. It also goes over some of the birds we missed including
birds we had scouted. Finally on the second tab you can see a bit of a
breakdown of our day (reconstructed after minimal sleep so be warned it may
not be entirely accurate!) that should give some sense of our route an how
the day progressed.

Highlights included lucking out with 4 species of owls in less than 30
minutes, Ben spotting (and elatedly yelling about) a Northern Pintail at
Downing Court after 20 minutes of searching and missing it at the treatment
plant just prior, Jason wishing for a Red-shouldered Hawk all day until we
finally found one in a spot we hadn't had one before and Jason still
wishing for a Belted Kingfisher right until we found one as the sun was
setting (beautiful sunset too), and having lots of laughs with some awesome
company!

Subject: 5 Bald Eagles Monroe NH
From: "'Duane Cross' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sun, 31 Jan 2016 02:28:23 +0000 (UTC)
 Was driving Rte 135 through the Monroe farm country this morning around 7:30 
am. Noticed a immature eagle gliding in and landing on the ground in some brush 
near the Stanton Rd intersection. I turned around and went back with my camera 
at ready and pulled off the road near the eagle. All hell broke loose with 
about 20 crows and 5 eagles (2 adults and 3 juveniles)suddenly taking flight. 
The eagles flew across the field and landed in trees while the crows which were 
eating side by side with them a moments earlier harassed them in flight the 
entire way till they landed in the trees. The birds were apparently feeding on 
some sort of farm animal remains that had been dumped there. There being a 
large chicken barn across the road I assume maybe dead chickens. A dead cow 
would have been visible from where I was parked but I also would also have 
expected the eagles to just carry off the dead chickens.Passing by late in the 
day again only crows were still feeding there but 3 eagles were nearby perched 
in a 
tree.                                                                                               Duane

Massachusetts Audubon. This is the 13th anniversary (and our 12th year 
of competing) for this competitive event, which is a fun way of beating 
the winter cold and getting out and finding birds in Essex County, MA 
and Rockingham County, NH. Our team name is the "New Hampshire 4th and 
Longspurs". As we have done in the past years, we participated in the 
category of "Rockingham County, NH only". A weighted valuation system 
determines the winner, where the rarity of the species determines the 
number of points awarded.

We had a difficult day and missed MANY of our staked out birds, but we 
were still very fortunate to find a few very nice birds and had a great 
day.  Our total of 70 is below past years, but was good enough to 
capture the "Rockingham County" award!  But we were farrrrr behind the 
overall winners....congratulations to Lauren and her team!

I'm still baffled by why we do so well one year, and then not so good 
the next, but certainly a bit of luck plays a big role in it! I thought 
today was a difficult day.  The mild weather and lack of snow seemed to 
keep the birds spread out and not focused on feeders.  And the ocean was 
surprisingly difficult with very large waves due to the offshore storm.  
We went through a period in mid-morning to early-afternoon where we 
missed every staked out bird.....Savannah Sparrow at Stuart Farm, 
Red-shouldered Hawks in Newfields and Exeter, Gadwalls on Great bay, Fox 
Sparrow in Greenland, Chipping Sparrow in Newmarket, Ruby-crowned 
Kinglet in Newmarket (and later in Rye), Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in 
East Kingston, Red-breasted Nuthatch in East Kingston, Brown-headed 
Cowbirds in East Kingston, Winter Wren in Hampton Falls, Golden-crowned 
Kinglets in Hampton Falls.   This caused is to loose time and we ran out 
of time on the coast.  This cost us Black Guillemot and Purple 
Sandpipers (only our 2nd miss ever).  And we missed Horned Lark for the 
fist time in our 12 years of competing.

Highlights for me personally were the Barred Owl (finally) responding to 
my hoots in Exeter, the Thick-billed Murre spotted by Kurk in Seabrook, 
the Merlin perched in the morning light, the surprise Barrow's Goldeneye 
on Great Bay, both of the Dickcissels, and the beautiful Portsmouth bog 
robin roost with 4 perched Cooper's Hawks stalking their evening meal 
among the thousands of Robins!

5:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Weather
-------------
Little snow. Fairly warm recently.  Icy in spots, muddy in spots. Great 
Bay open except for ice sheet on eastern part of bay.
30F to 40F winds W 5-15 mph.  Mostly sunny.

The following is our list of birds in taxonomic order:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Canada Goose
Mute Swan
American Wigeon - Only 2 on Great Bay, but 2 more in Exeter.  Most of 
the wigeon (including the Eurasians) on Great Bay appear to have pulled 
out since earlier in January.
American Black Duck
Mallard
Northern Pintail - 3 males at Exeter WTP.  But no Green-winged Teal or 
Shoveler.
REDHEAD - 1+ male off Meloon Road in Greenland from private property 
with permission.
Greater Scaup
Lesser Scaup
Common Eider
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Black Scoter
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
Common Goldeneye
BARROW'S GOLDENEYE - 1 female roughly off of Great Bay Discovery Center 
on Great Bay in Greenland.  A big surprise for us and the first I have 
heard about on Great Bay this winter.  But I understand others have had 
a male in this area as well.
Red-breasted Merganser
Red-throated Loon - At least 4 or 5 off the Hampton area beaches.
Common Loon
Horned Grebe - Almost missed this as there are remarkably few Horned 
Grebes along coast.
Red-necked Grebe - Including a few rafts of 8 to 10 birds.
Great Cormorant
Great Blue Heron - None along coast, but very strange bird flying low 
over Rt. 33 in Greenland late in afternoon and landing on side of road 
near Pease Tradeport lights.
TURKEY VULTURE - We had been monitoring a roost site in Exeter, but 
sadly they did NOT go there to roost last night!  This kept us from 
getting a vulture at 5:00 AM, but we were able to spotlight a bird at 
5:15 AM (cost us 3 points) perched on the top of the chimney at Lincoln 
Street School.  A couple of more later in morning in Exeter area.
Bald Eagle - 3 total for day.
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 3 total for the day! (FOY)
Cooper’s Hawk - Perhaps as many as 6 or more for the day.  A huge number 
of accipiters for us today.  A big surprise, since I had seen very few 
thus far in January.
Red-tailed Hawk
MERLIN - 1 beautiful bird perched up in the morning sun off Great Bay 
Road in Greenland.  A big surprise, particularly for this area. (FOY)
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Glaucous Gull - Nicely perched on the bathrooms in Seabrook.
Great Black-backed Gull
THICK-BILLED MURRE - 1 (or likely 2) of Seabrook Beach.  One just beyond 
the breaking waves near the north end of the beach.  Likely a second 
bird from the same location, but difficult to get good looks at in the 
high seas. (FOY)
Razorbill - About 6 distant flybys off Seabrook Beach.
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Eastern Screech-Owl - One at Great Bay Discovery Center parking lot in 
Greenland. (FOY)
Barred Owl - FINALLY we got one after some effort off Gary (or Lary?) 
Lane in Exeter. (FOY)
Belted Kingfisher - One (or 2?) off Wheelright Creek in Exeter. (FOY)
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Pileated Woodpecker - One off New Road in Newmarket.
Blue Jay
American Crow
Common Raven - One in East Kingston, one in Newmarket.
Black-capped Chickadee
Tufted Titmouse
White-breasted Nuthatch
Carolina Wren - Just one.  Singing vociferously off West Road in Rye.
Eastern Bluebird - Lots around today including a couple of singing birds.
Hermit Thrush - 1 at the end of Airport Road in Greenland.  Late in the day.
American Robin - Beautiful show of thousands of Robins flying in to 
roost in Portsmouth.
Northern Mockingbird
European Starling
Cedar Waxwing
American Tree Sparrow
Song Sparrow
Swamp Sparrow - None in our staked out spots, but 3 (!) together in 
Borthwick Avenue marshes (but no Winter Wren).
White-throated Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
Northern Cardinal
DICKCISSEL - 2 (!!!)  We were very happy to relocate the Dickcissel we 
found earlier in the month near Beckman's Landing in Seabrook, but were 
even more amazed to find a SECOND Dickcissel at the Great Bay Farm in 
Greenland.
Common Grackle - 1 male perched up in Great Bog in Portsmouth in evening 
roost.  BUT NO Red-winged Blackbirds.  :-(
House Finch
American Goldfinch
House Sparrow

Subject: Small Owl Sp., Warner
From: jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com
Date: Sat, 30 Jan 2016 20:56:45 -0500
Today I joined Scott Heron and Steve Bennett for a day of coastal birding. 
Although the Super Bowl was in full swing, we did not participate and spent the 
day casually searching the area. It was a beautiful day, but perhaps a little 
disappointing as it seemed to be pretty quiet along the coast as far as birds 
go. Our day got a little more exciting when we shifted our efforts to 
Massachusetts and we walked away finding some pretty interesting birds. 


On my way home I got off Interstate 89 on exit 9 in Warner just after 6pm. I 
began traveling west on Route 103 towards Bradford and about a quarter mile 
from the exit I saw a small owl fly over my car with great speed. The whole 
sighting took place in an instant and unfortunately I didn't see any 
distinguishing features of this bird. I imagine this owl was a Northern 
Saw-whet as Screech Owls are seemingly scarce this far north. Unfortunately, 
without seeing any features of the bird, I don't have to confidence to declare 
the appropriate species. 


Even still, I can't believe I've had two small owl sightings from my car in 
such a short amount of time after seeing a Saw-whet pass in front of me while 
driving in Sunapee on January 16th. Perhaps tracking one down in the area to 
photograph won't be as hard as I expected.

What a great day to be outside! And birding! We were cheering on all our NH
Superbowl teams from the sidelines.

Here is a link to photos of a Red-shouldered Hawk in Seabrook and (click

Subject: possible injured Red-tailed Hawk - Rye
From: DENNIS <d.skillman AT comcast.net>
Date: Sat, 30 Jan 2016 21:19:51 +0000 (UTC)
My wife and I were birding up the coast when we spotted a Red-tailed Hawk in a 
tree on the inland side of Rt 1A just south of Wallis Sands. I was able to 
photograph the bird and we were quite surprised when it did not spook when 
other cars and a bicycler pulled over and walked out to look at the hawk. Debby 
remarked how he seemed to be holding his right foot up the whole time. When we 
got home and I looked at the photos, I noticed blood on the talons of that 
foot. It also was leaning over to his left as though to maintain balance. 


This is just a heads up for anyone out that way to take a close look at the 
bird if it is still there to see if seems injured. It could be that the bird 
just finished off a meal and wasn't budging, and the foot is on the branch, but 
the behavior was unusual.

Lots more reports of the Red-headed Woodpecker on Town Farm Road in Ipswich, 
another report of the Redhead at Niles Pond, a Turkey Vulture on Argilla Road 
in Ipswich, and finally: 

> 3:10 pm Wicked Pishahs got the Baltimore Oriole at 38 Hay Street in Newbury. 
This bird has been coming to a suet feeder by the house. Please view only from 
the road. Thank you.
