Thanks to Kurk Dorsey for the mention of the grebe. I stopped by after work on 
4/22 and it was still there. Also saw a beaver, 3 Ring-necked drakes and 2 
hens. 


This was at the old UNH reservoir.

I've been waiting to hear their trill and finally around noon today 
thought I heard it. Sure enough I spied this beauty as I enjoyed lunch 
on the deck this gorgeous spring day!

Subject: Earth Day at Pondicherry and First Loon Arrives
From: David Govatski <david.govatski AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2014 11:46:35 -0400
Happy Earth Day! The first loon or more properly, Great Northern Diver, arrived 
at Cherry Pond in Jefferson at the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge on 
Earth Day. The ice went out yesterday, about a week later than usual. Other 
birds noted were an osprey, female northern harrier, kestrel, tree swallows, 
Wilson's snipe and numerous ring-necked ducks and other waterfowl. There are a 
lot of wonderful wildlife sounds being heard. The drumming of ruffed grouse is 
almost constant. 


Pondicherry trails are open and survived the winter relatively well. A bridge 
that provides access to the refuge trail off of Airport Road in Whitefield had 
a partial failure and slumped about 18" due to a washout. That bridge is closed 
but you can go to an alternate entrance and walk in that way. Use care in 
parking along Airport Road. We hope to open an alternative route for cars to 
the trail head soon. 


The 14th Annual International Migratory Bird Day and Tudor Richard Memorial 
Walk will be held on Saturday 10 May 2014. We start at 0600 at Airport Marsh in 
Whitefield and again at 0800 at the Trailhead on Airport Road. We are out all 
day although you can participate for as long as you like and walk out on your 
own. Free IMBD posters and bird houses. More details will follow. There is also 
another International Migratory Bird Day on Thursday 8 May 2014 at Weeks State 
Park in Lancaster starting at 0700.

Subject: FOY Louisiana Waterthrush
From: Gail Coffey <gcoffeywriter AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2014 08:00:57 -0400
Last night, I took a walk in woods near my house and saw a Louisiana
Waterthrush.  The bird popped out of the blueberry bushes onto a tree
branch and began chipping at me.

let people know that the two Sandhill Cranes are again in Monroe.  They use

From: Christine Sheridan <cmsbirds AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:28:10 -0400
After a long afternoon looking and walking here and there, (very quiet,
wrong time of day?) I finally found two "new" Nashua  species in the scrub,
grass and scattered woods off Lock St:

An *Eastern Towhee *scratching away under some oaks


A lovely little* Bank Swallow *sitting nicely on a Silver Maple over the
Nashua River (why I couldn't get its photo involves a long story involving
a railroad bridge, a recalcitrant lens and a very, very, very  long
train...I was not squashed, and suppose I should count my blessings.)

I saw no less than three Blue-gray Gnatcatchers actually gnat-catching in
that same area--two were in sight at once, the third on the opposite site
of said railroad bridge.  One even let me take some recognizable
photos....(what's with these Gnatcatchers?  Are they early,  and so easier
to see without all the foliage?  More numerous than usual? Or have I
belatedly developed the "eye" and "ear" to pick them out?)

I saw Jeanne-Marie's post about the Great Egret and stopped at Field's
Grove, hoping I could see it from there, and did --an absolutely stunning,
elegant bird in nuptial plumage, it was tucked away in a little cove,
grooming its gorgeous plumage.

yesterday I think but I forgot to check the date and didn't have a chance to
post to the list before I left work today. It did not say where but the
photograph shows birds in a corn field. Maybe West Portsmouth St.?

Lakes Region
Over the last two days I checked 4 Bald Eagle nests and 9 Osprey nests in
the Lakes Region.
Incubation confirmed at 3 Osprey nests, adults at 5 more.
Incubation continues at 3 eagle nests. The heat shimmer above the ice was
too strong to see any activity at the fourth eagle nest where incubation
has been underway since late March.
A pair of Merlin's was present at the nest site they used last year on
Squam Lake.

At Intervale Fields in Gilford, the number of waterfowl has dropped
dramatically. The Snow Goose was still present.

Birders
Early this morning, 4 ravens were circling high over the UNH campus--seems like 
a very high number for Durham. 


I'm in awe of the towns with 100 and 130 species. I've gotten 75 this year in 
Durham, and I can think of maybe 10 that I could have seen. Even my imagination 
lags behind those towns! If I get a Lawrence's Warbler in Durham again this 
year, can I have 25 bonus species?

It circled low overhead, and I could see the light underside and fine gray 
horizontal barring on the chest. Then it flew off over the house in a very 
nonchalant and buoyant manner.

The pair of evening grosbeaks returned to my feeder today in Richmond.

Also it seems the break I took from birding (starting in the mid 90's on
entering college, and ending a couple years ago) someone changed the names
of my birds on me. Common Snipes are now Wilson's. Myrtle Warblers are not
Yellow Rumped, etc. I am too used to the old names.

As the day went late I took a spontaneous unplanned post shopping birding
trip to Krif Rd in Keene. Sadly it was late in the day and being unplanned
I had no binoculars.

Their I seen what looked like a miniature duck (no photos came out to ID
itm but it looked much smaller than a mallard), and a small group of peeps.

On checking and magnifying the photos when I arrived home the peeps were
common snipe. I wish I got a picture of the mini duck to come out so I
could ID it.

Canada Geese, Mallards, a Wilson's Snipe. and a Killdeer at the farm fields on 
Intervale Rd in Gilford. 


With the Greater White-fronted Goose, I've retired another NH nemesis; two in a

Subject: Wigeon and Peregrines in Boscawen plus a "new" field for birds
From: raqbirds AT aol.com
Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2014 14:01:39 -0400 (EDT)
Chris Borg and I found some of the lingering ducks late Saturday afternoon, 
mostly in Boscawen. 


After an obligatory stop to see the very cooperative ibises and a high count of 
250 Ring-bellied Gulls at Horseshoe Pond we went 

up to the Big Bend area in Boscawen. The Bend itself is very quiet right now 
because of how high the Merrimack River is but the flooded fields were 
productive. 


Between the field to the south (Martin's) and the field to the north (Crete's) 
our highlights were: 


Snow Goose- zero. They were there on Friday so either it was time to leave or 
that Golden Eagle was VERY hungry. 

Canada Goose- 100+ 
Wood Duck- 50+ 
Black Duck- 40+ 
AMERICAN WIGEON- pair in Crete's flooded field. 
Green-winged Teal- about ten. 
Ring-necked Duck- about eight. 
Hooded Merg- a few
Common Merg- 38 in one small pond. 
Pied-billed Grebe- one. 
Double-crested Cormorant- three adults. 
Peregrine Falcon- two sub-adults. Siblings? Teenage love? They both perched in 
the half-dead White Pine near Crete's and couldn't quite decide if they wanted 
to be friendly. No bands and all legs seen clearly (Chris Martin take note). 


Lastly, we spent a quick few minutes late in the day exploring the most 
northerly of the big agricultural fields in Boscawen with some intriguing 
results. I have only sampled this field from the river while paddling so poking 
around its edges on land was new. Highlights: 


Northern Harrier- a male in not quite full adult plumage. 
Killdeer- our only one of the afternoon! 
Northern Rough-winged swallow- two. 
VESPER SPARROW- at least three seen well and perhaps as many as ten were 
flushed by the Harrier. This looks like a newly discovered local site for this 
declining and now uncommon species. Two years ago I heard one singing at the 
edge of this field while I was canoeing the river in both June and July so it 
bears checking out this summer.

I have never seen Horseshoe Pond so large.  It has doubled in size and

Subject: Concord Birds: Louisiana, Blue-headed, Broad-wing, etc.
From: "Pam Hunt" <biodiva AT myfairpoint.net>
Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2014 11:14:22 -0400
Greetings all,

 

Yesterday morning I spent a couple of relatively quiet hours at Morrill's
Farm, where it appears most of the ducks have moved on. All we had of note
were 11 GW teal and 9 RN Ducks, quite a change from the situation there last
weekend. Other species of note included a pair of kestrels, singing Vesper
Sparrow, and Concord's first Northern Rough-winged Swallow and Yellow-rumps
of the year.

 

This morning's Penacook Survey was quite productive, netting a record 51
species for mid-April. Flickers (record count of 14) and RC Kinglets (near
record 21), and I got a nice handful of FOYs, including: Ruffed Grouse
(about time), Broad-winged Hawk, Blue-headed Vireo, Louisiana Waterthrush,
and Swamp Sparrow. Two Barred Owls calling back and forth along Bog Road was
a nice bonus. And perhaps most amazing of all, today marks the first time in
*371* circuits of this route that I didn't see or hear a SINGLE squirrel or
chipmunk. What's up with that?!?!?

 

The preliminary year list for Concord now stands at 110.

From: Scott Heron <smheron AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2014 11:07:51 -0400
I took the kayak out onto Great Pond in Kingston on Saturday in the hopes
of spotting a Loon or two. I've observed at least one on the pond each of
the four days I'd made it out since last week.

A few others I noted in the process:
1 Bald Eagle (Juvenile)
approx. 50 Tree Swallows
1 Ruby-Crowned Kinglet (female)
1 Double-Crested Cormorant
2 Wood Ducks
3 Bufflehead
2 Canada Geese
1 Great Blue Heron
5 Red-Winged Blackbirds
1 Song Sparrow
7 Grackles
2 Phoebes
At least 2-3 Mallard (It was hard to tell as there were males darting from
various corners of the pond. Perhaps they're nesting)

Later in the day, I'd seen a Pileated Woodpecker near my yard, a Turkey
Vulture along rt. 101 and a Turkey along rt. 107 in Fremont.

Sorry for the late report - but we went to Bellamy River WMA again on Friday 
afternoon. 


Highlights included - 
The continuation of a large number of Palm Warblers - 
A Flicker sitting high in a tree - 
Several Eastern Phoebe along the field edges - 
A Kestrel up high in another tree, looking out over the field -
And what we believe was a Broad-winged Hawk (photo link below - feel free to 
correct us if we're wrong on the ID :-)) that flew straight toward the parking 
area as we pulled in and landed up on top of the high post that's right by the 
lot, sitting there surveying the ground below for several minutes as we watched 
before he flew down and disappeared into the scrub. 


A few photos -

Strafford County Farm produced 36 species this am, including at least one, and 
possibly a second, singing Louisiana Waterthrush. The Ospreys are back courting 
and refurbishing their nest. Spring is in the air as American Kestrels, Eastern 
Bluebirds, Tree Sparrows, and Carolina Wrens are pairing up. First of year 
Eastern Towhee and Chipping Sparrow were present at the County Farm and also in 
the yard. Many Palm Warblers and a couple of Yellow-rumps and Pines were 
tallied and an Eastern Meadowlark was heard. On Fri. at Pickering Ponds, there 
were five Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, two Rough-winged Swallows, and many Palm 
Warblers.

My Aunt and I went birding around Concord today. We stopped by Horseshoe Pond 
and then headed over to the Audubon. In the area around Horseshoe pond, we saw 
a large variety of birds including the Glossy Ibis, a pair of Wood Ducks, 
Mallards, a huge flock of Cedar Waxwings, several Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a Palm 
Warbler, crows, gulls, Canada Geese, an Osprey, and a Red-tail Hawk to list a 
few. At the Audubon, we really didn't see much - a few sparrows, chickadees, 
and Juncos. The highlight of the Audubon trip was a Pileated Woodpecker.

Subject: Hinsdale Setbacks - Palms, Pine, Gnatcatchers, Kinglets, Rough-wing... ramblings
From: Wendy Ward <weward0 AT yahoo.com>
Date: Sat, 19 Apr 2014 15:33:28 -0700 (PDT)
It was a great day for potluck birding at the setbacks. I
was served up a big ladle of palms, yellow-rump, and kinglets - so close 
binoculars not required! Ruby-crown kinglets (8) came within a few feet of me 

breaking into full song and flashing their red crowns. The Palm warblers (9) 
were 

clearly the best dressed for the party, stunning in bright yellow with rusty
caps, they were however a bit more circumspect as they foraged from 
ground-to-tree-to-trunk tail bobbing and singing. The single Pinewarbler was 
almost overlooked until it announced 

that it was indeed not a Myrtle, thank-you-very-much!  The Blue-gray 
gnatcatchers (2) arrived fashionably 

late and out of breath announcing their arrival with squeaks and wheezes. They, 
like the 

kinglets, came within a few feet to make
sure I saw them in their finery. 

Yellow-rumps (15) were clearly the host of this party. This
morning was a study in Myrtle. The whole family was there- adult males, 
females, 

and first years. They dazzled the audience  flying tight loops and weaving at 
top speed 

between tree branches and dense brush announcing “tsk  tsk” stopping only 
to scold a neighbor, clung 

to trunks or flutter among branches to glean insects. In true Yellow-rump form,
they proved they are trickster-songsters and can pseudo-imitate any number of
warbler species, challenging this birder to sharpen her wits (and ears). 
Terrific 

performance all round! I am quite full!

2 Rough-wing and a Barn swallow swooped down to check out
the party – but they preferred the shin dig the tree swallows were holding 
over 

the water so  they didn’t stick around.  Wendy

I had new and unexpected yard birds today. Around 6:30 am, I had a male and 
female wood duck pair taking turns trying out a cavity in a dead oak tree in my 
yard. I had pileated woodpeckers at the tree all last spring, but didn't 
realize they made a cavity in it. I hope the wood ducks return! 




Other yard highlights today include: 



1 - brown creeper 

1 - pine warbler 

3 - dark-eyed juncos 

2 - white-throated sparrows 

1 - red-bellied woodpecker male, calling and drumming all day 

1 - hairy wood pecker female 

1 - ruby-crowned kinglet 

1 - pine warbler 

2 - eastern bluebirds, one male, one female 

1 - song sparrow

About 3:00, at the pond at the foot of the Abenaki ski area on Rt. 109A in
Wolfeboro, there was an Osprey perched in the tree that has the GBH nest,
in the middle of the pond.  A week or two ago there was a GBH perched in
the tree but I haven't seen it since and haven't seen any evidence of nest
improvement going on.

Also 2 male Ring-necked ducks, a pair of Mallards, a pair of Hooded
Mergansers, and another Hoodie that could have been a female or a first
spring male.

On Back Bay, I've seen 2 Common Loons for the past couple of days.

Greetings, 

I checked out Horseshoe Pond at lunch. The pond is quite swollen - and many 
interesting birds were there during my lunch hour. I saw Canada Geese, 
Mallards, gulls, 3-6 Wilson's Snipe (North end of the field near the pond), 2 
glossy ibis (north end - field edge), GBH, a muscrat, and an Osprey. I also saw 
a bullet of a bird go speeding through the brush after another bird. I have a 
feeling it was a falcon (Peregrine or a Merlin) too fast for me to tell. Not 
the best shots - but a sampling.

Subject: 2 Glossy Ibis - Horseshoe Pond now
From: dlv AT comcast.net
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:02:38 +0000 (UTC)
Greetings, 

I believe there are now 2 glossy ibis at the North end of Horseshoe Pond in 
Concord (across from 2 Delta). They are on the small piece of field between the 
pond and the giant flow over puddle. They are amongst the gulls. I am pretty 
sure they are ibis - unfortunately- I was at lunch and today grabbed the wrong 
camera bag (I thought it was the one with the 300mm lens and it was the one 
with the 105mm lens (not good for distance). I zoomed on some shots and they do 
have a curved bill. I am back at work - so I can't drag the binoculars out and 
double check. Folks in the area - may want to come by the pond.

While watching two goldeneyes above the spillway behind S. Main St. a cormorant 
flew in which made an unseen Harrier fly off. The 3 Canada Geese were unmoved, 
but the Pigeons went in all directions. Meanwhile work has called me in...I 
don't think so...
