Mid-day Jody and I observed the Greater White-fronted Goose, Snow Goose, 80+ 
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 
week! 


A Fish Crow was perched and calling at the Exxon Station in Tilton on our way 
to Gilford.

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.

Beautiful big pair of pileated woodpeckers flying from tree to tree in the

I stopped by Horseshoe Pond in Concord this evening around 6:30.  The two
Glossy Ibis are still there.

I have never seen Horseshoe Pond so large.  It has doubled in size and
extended its length into the trees to the north and beyond. 

 

Hundreds of Gulls, some Canada Geese, a few Hoodies & some Green-winged Teal
were also present.

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.

Subject: Loon and Bald Eagle on Great Pond
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.

Whilst woodcock hunting on Arboretum Drive at Pease a large Gray horned owl
landed on a dead tree right near us! A life bird for us.  V got great looks
seeing the eyes, and I caught it when it flew across the road in front of

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.

Subject: Another Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Osprey and Merganser feeding frenzy/Nashua
From: Christine Sheridan <cmsbirds AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:08:31 -0400
Nothing new today, but I got another spectacular look at a (second)
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (paler, less blue, no black on face, probably a
female) about 1/4 mile from yesterday's male.  Nice to get a chance to look
at them while the trees are still leafless.

Upstream of the gatehouse  behind Stellos Stadium, the Nashua River was
drawn way down.  From the overlook near the Tilton St. boat-ramp, I got to
watch two pairs of Common Mergansers in a veritable feeding frenzy on fish
in the shallows.

The fish were small, but huge compared to the Merg's heads.  They would
drive the fish up next to the bank, snag them and gulp them down--sometimes
with great difficulty--then go after more fish. (How much can they hold?)
They were not above trying to steal from one another.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/42971731 AT N03/sets/72157643380537345/

I put a few photos in above set, not  very good but it was amazing to me to
see how they managed to swallow those fish.

The Osprey were fussing with something in the nest. Much wing-flapping.
Someone was sitting on the nest at all times.  Eggs?

About 3:30 pm today there was a glossy ibis in the salt marsh across from
second pull out south of Odiorne.

When I went back to look for it at 4:30 PM I didn't find it, but there was
a blue-gray gnatcatcher that flew across the road and flitted in and out of
the rocks. There were a lot of flies there and a lot of wrack washed up on
the rocks. Photo at:

From: "Dorsey, Kurk" <Kurk.Dorsey AT unh.edu>
Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:42:40 +0000
Birders,
This afternoon, about 2:45, I was heading east on NH 4, at not a mile over the 
speed limit, just west of Gen'l Sullivan Road in Rollinsford when I saw a 
flycatcher fly up and and land in a tree. It appeared to have a crest (or 
possibly a mullet) and gave a distinct impression of a kingbird. Given how 
early it is, I have to assume that it was a phoebe with a taste for pomade, but 
anyone in the area might be on the lookout for something more unusual for this 
time of year. Well, maybe not more unusual than a phoebe with hair-care 
products.

Stopped at the Spinney Reservoir this afternoon in Durham, and saw a 
Pied-Billed Grebe swimming about in the middle of the water - we stop there 
quite often and this is the first time we've noticed one at this location (he 
was too far out for good photos, but I did take a couple for documentation). 
Other than that, just the usual bluebirds, chickadees, goldfinches, etc. in the 
field and along the trail - plus one Red-tailed Hawk circling over the water 
and calling, which got the grebe's attention and kept him watching the sky for 
quite a few minutes after the hawk left. 


Also stopped at the Bellamy River WMA - there we had more Palm Warblers than we 
could count hopping everywhere in the fields and flying in and out of the 
scrub, which was really fun to see. Also at Bellamy, at least one male 
Yellow-rumped Warbler, an assortment of sparrows, and lots of chickadees and 
cardinals. 


Happy birding!

Nottingham, NH

location: 1 washington street / cochecho river

lots and lots of tree swallows with a few rough winged...

i was standing on the bank of the river and they would get within a foot -
so close you could hear the wings and the beak snap shut on a fly, and see
them catch a fly out of the air.  i had to duck a few times as the wind
gust would blow them near me.

I went to Intervale Road in Gilford this morning. It was very windy and
cold, a lot of geese and ducks were hunkered down among last year's broken
off cornstalks. The GWFG may have been in there, but I could'nt find it.
After about half an hour, the Snow Goose flew out of that area and landed
in the grass with some Canada Geese, where I managed a pic :

had a small flock of Horned Larks land and start foraging while I was
scoping for geese :

In a wetter part of the fields, I had an American Wigeon, half a dozen
Green-winged Teal, some Wood Ducks, American Black Ducks and lots of
Mallards. No sign of the Northern Shovelers Iain MacLeod had.

Subject: Palm Warbler in Jefferson
From: David Govatski <david.govatski AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2014 08:41:28 -0400
We picked up 5" of fresh snow from last nights storm that turned from heavy 
rain to snow. I had already cleaned and put away the feeders due to potential 
bear issues but dug them out for the morning to feed the birds. I shoveled out 
a large patch so that the ground feeders would be able to forage and we were 
quickly rewarded with many hungry birds including: 

56 juncos
2 fox sparrows
1 white-throated sparrow
1 Palm Warbler (new backyard feeder bird)
15 goldfinches
17 purple finches
2 downy woodpeckers
2 hairy woodpeckers
2 red-breasted nuthatches
2 robins foraging at the edge of our home where the ground was warmer.
2 grackles
1 ruffed grouse drumming. It was drumming all night even in the snowstorm. 
1 blue jay compared to two dozen when I had the feeders up before 1 April.

The feeders will come back down this afternoon due to the potential for bear 
visits.

Hi birders,

To my surprise, a field sparrow has been eating under our yard feeder with the 
white-throated sparrows. First time ever for my yard list. He's a real cutie, 
saw him up close and he stayed put for about 5 minutes at a time. 


Ah, spring!!

Two glossy Ibis were foraging close to the parking lot from 530-615pm today
at Chapman's Landing in Stratham.  They were still there when I left at
that time.
Also present were two green wing teal, many red winged blackbirds, and two
or three peeps, probably greater yellowlegs.

(I deleted my first post from the group because I accidently quoted the
whole last day's posts! Oops.  So sorry if you get two emails from me.)

Most of the ducks and geese have flown the coup here since the water dropped 
overnight like someone pulled the plug from a bathtub last week. This rain 
flooded the ditches and fields again and there was one lone male green wing 
teal with a pair of mallards in the flooded ditch on Cornwell drive leading to 
UPS about 5:30 this afternoon. :) Wendy

Subject: Vernal Pool/Frog Walk in Lee this Saturday
From: Catherine Fisher <catherineckx AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 15 Apr 2014 17:30:34 -0400
After a long, snowy and difficult winter, signs of spring are beginning to
appear.  One of the first amphibians to emerge are the wood frogs, whose
boisterous quacking is heard wherever their breeding pools are found.
 Having spent the winter under leaf litter in the forests where they live,
these small, cryptically- marked, terrestrial frogs emerge from hibernation
very early in the spring and make their way to vernal pools to breed. Their
breeding season is brief - only a few weeks in which to mate, lay eggs and
return to the woods. Wood frogs may not sport the brilliant colors of
tropical frogs, but they are every bit as remarkable. The only North
American amphibian able to live above the Arctic Circle, the wood frog has
mastered cryogenics - that is, they are able to withstand the freezing of
up to 40-60% of its body during hibernation. During the winter each frog
becomes, in effect, a frogcicle, lying quiescent, without respiration or
heartbeat, until spring.


Anyone interested in learning more about these remarkable creatures and
observing them in their breeding pools is invited to participate in a Frog
Walk in the Town Forest sponsored by the Lee Conservation
Commission. Our route is an easy walk along the Town Bog and into the Lee
Town Forest.  We will visit one or two vernal pools where wood frogs are
currently raising their voices.

We will meet  beside the Lee Library this Saturday, April 19 at 9:00 a.m. Rain
date Sunday, April 20, at 9:00 a.m.

All ages welcome.

On the corner of Mill Pond and Winter street, near where we park our car.
We saw a single male Red Bellied Woodpecker in an old oak tree next to the
bridge. After poking around a little he made his distinctive call and flew
over to the bog area down the path where we were unable to relocate him.
There have been many Golden crowned kinglets all over town lately. Odd we
have yet to pick out any Rubys. There were 3 common mergansers (1F) and 2 F
Hooded Mergs.on our damp walk.

Subject: Program on Vernal Pools this Wednesday in Bethlehem
From: David Govatski <david.govatski AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 15 Apr 2014 08:35:10 -0400
The Ammonoosuc Chapter of NH Audubon is hosting a free program on Vernal Pools 
and Amphibians on Wednesday 16 April 2014 at 7 PM at the Rocks Christmas Tree 
Farm and in Bethlehem. 


Have you ever wondered what’s making all that noise in the spring pools as 
the days get warmer? Vernal pools come alive as wood frogs and salamanders 
re-emerge from the ground to migrate and breed in temporary bodies of water 
known as vernal pools. Join us for a fascinating evening program and a visit to 
a vernal pool with Mike Jones and Liz Willey. Mike and Liz are accomplished 
authors, speakers, researchers and photographers. We will go outside after the 
indoor program on reptiles and amphibians to see a vernal pool just a few steps 
away. Bring a flashlight and warm clothing for the outside portion. 
 


Workshop participants will learn how to identify vernal pool species by sight, 
sound, and habitat. They’ll also learn about the unique role amphibians play 
in forested ecosystems and how to locate and protect woodland vernal pools. 
This popular annual workshop will include an opportunity to see live amphibians 
and their eggs. The program is free and is of special interest to school 
children, parents and anyone interested in nature. The Ammonoosuc Chapter of NH 
Audubon and the Rocks Estate jointly sponsor this program. 


Directions to The Rocks Christmas Tree Farm: 
From North or South
Take I-93 
to exit 40 near Littleton, NH. 
Take Route 302 East for 1/2 mile. 
Turn 
right after the Rocks Estate Sign
 and follow signs to parking area and 
program center.

We had a chipping sparrow, a fox sparrow and 34 juncos under and on the 
feeders, a northern flicker heard in the woods and a red-tailed hawk prowling 
the skies above it all.

Mid-day, while getting my car inspected on Tenney Mtn Highway, I watched as 9 
Broad-winged, 3 American Kestrels, 1 Sharp-shinned and 1 Cooper's Hawks soared 
by over 90 minutes. One larger Buteo went unidentified. Three Herring Gulls 
also took advantage of the updrafts. 

In a meadow across the road, there were 4 Palm Warblers, 2 Eastern Phoebes, 2 
Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 4-5 Northern Flickers 


First full day back in state...

Subject: BLVU in Haverhill, NH
From: Christian Martin <cmartin AT nhaudubon.org>
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 22:30:22 +0000
About noon today, while observing peregrines at a cliff just SW of French Pond 
in Haverhill, NH, had an unexpected guest overhead. One Black Vulture -- inky 
black, short triangular tail, and long "finger-tips" -- arrived on strong south 
wind, circled over cliff for 10 full minutes, then disappeared northward. 


Also during the hour, had peregrines (2 resident), osprey (1 headed south), 
broad-winged hawk (1), sharpies (3), and red-tails (2), and turkey vulture (3).
