I got out kayaking on Lake Massabesic in Auburn, NH on Tuesday. I found the 
juvenile Loon from this summer, was hanging out with what appeared to be a 
visiting juvenile Loon, that was passing through on it's way to the ocean. 


Photos and video shoot hand-held from my kayak. Air temperature was 22-35 
degrees while I was on the lake.

Subject: 2 Barred Owls Bog Rd Campton NH
From: "'Duane Cross' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2016 04:41:43 +0000 (UTC)
 Was delivering late tonight on the Bog Rd In Campton. I was passing the 
Pulsifer Farm when I saw a large bird ahead fly across the road and land on a 
fence post beside the road. I slowed the truck down and when I reached the spot 
I angled the truck so I could light up the bird. It was a Barred Owl and he put 
up with the bright lights for about 3 seconds and then flew off across the 
field.About 10 minutes and 2 deliveries and a half mile later I saw another 
large bird fly across the road and land on a rock in the woods. I stopped and 
focused my headlamp into the woods and spotted another owl sitting on a rock. 
This time I left first. Doubt it was the same owl but it is possible he could 
have been expecting a package and was following me. Customers will do this 
sometimes.

Subject: Horned Grebe, Snow Buntings - Sunapee
From: jacksonwrxt89 AT gmail.com
Date: Tue, 6 Dec 2016 20:26:52 -0500
Over the last day and half I've been working all over the shore of Lake Sunapee 
doing snow removal for our first "big" snow storm of the year. The winter 
conditions are starting to set in and the lakes smaller bays are already 
starting to freeze. While the times of open water are surely soon to end, there 
seems to be a late congregation of waterfowl going on. Yesterday I counted a 
large group of 22 Common Mergansers in Gardner Bay in Sunapee. Today I found a 
total of 23 Hooded Mergansers from George's Mills Harbor (9) and Gardner Bay 
(14). Mallards are also congregating in George's Mills Harbor with a few 
American Black Ducks mixed in. There are still plenty of Common Loons around 
the lake, but the most notable sighting over the last two days was a HORNED 
GREBE in Gardner Bay late yesterday afternoon. 


After finally getting all the snow picked up this morning, I stopped briefly at 
Trask Brook Road in Sunapee and there were 8 SNOW BUNTINGS feeding along the 
roadside.

Subject: Book Sale - used bird books
From: birdrecords <birdrecords AT nhaudubon.org>
Date: Tue, 6 Dec 2016 21:27:42 +0000
For many years New Hampshire Audubon (NHA) has maintained an extensive natural 
history library and been a source of hard to find books and information about 
birds, wildlife and other natural resources. 


Times have changed. The information age has made libraries like ours less 
necessary. While NHA will maintain a research library with current, science 
based information about NH wildlife, we are in the process of downsizing our 
collection to provide that focus. As a result, many books will need a new home. 


On Saturday, December 10 from 10-2 at the McLane Center in Concord we will be 
holding a used book sale to offer nature related books to the public. The sale 
will include a rich collection of bird guides and reference books, general 
natural history books, field guides, outdoor recreation guides, nature writing 
and environmental essays. 


The sale is open to all and will occur in conjunction with our annual Holiday 
Fair and Nature Store sale. The Nature Store will be offering a 20% discount to 
NHA members on all items, including binoculars. Numerous craft vendors will 
present their wares and provide demonstrations. Holiday craft activities for 
children will be available as well. 


We hope you will be able to join us for this festive day. For more information 
visit our website: www.nhaudubon.org or contact Ruth 
Smith at rsmith AT nhaudubon.org.

Subject: possible (unconfirmed) Harrier in Swanzey
From: Joshua Jarvis <menasor77 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 6 Dec 2016 16:27:00 -0500
A few minutes ago around 4:00 PM I stopped by the airport in Swanzey on my
way home. I saw a large bird slowly gliding back and forth over the grass
in the distance. Only flapping when it slowed down to investigate
something. Sadly it was distant, my binoculars were not on me, and my
camera lost charge so I cannot tell you if it had a white tail patch. (when
flying over the bushes it looked dark grey, but it seemed lighter in the
more lit areas), The flight pattern reminded me of a harrrier but only
having seen one twice and not getting a good look at this bird I am not
certain. Can anyone else confirm the ID?

Posting for Steve Rounds:

"The Baker Valley Christmas Bird Count could use reinforcements. We have five 
routes and, in the last years, only three regular participants. This year, we 
will do our count on December 17. We will gather at the Rumney Town Hall at 
7:30 in the morning. (The Town Hall is on Depot Street, just off NH 25. Coming 
from Plymouth, turn right at the second blinking light and then left. The Town 
Hall is next to the fire station.) We will organize ourselves and assign routes 
and then disperse. We will meet again at an assigned time in the afternoon to 
tally the results. If you'd like to join us, please contact Steve Rounds at 603 
764-9011 or ullungdo96 AT yahoo.com."

Thinking it was a bit to cold to see a Great Blue Heron peeking up from the

Subject: Evening Grosbeaks in Jefferson
From: David Govatski <david.govatski AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 6 Dec 2016 07:36:39 -0500
The winter bird feeding season is off to a slow start but we do have 14 Evening 
Grosbeaks that show up on our feeders a couple times during the day. We have 
four inches of snow on the ground and hopefully will have a snowy winter for 
outdoor fun. For feeder birds we have: 

Evening Grosbeak 14 an even mix of males and females
Ruffed Grouse 1
Hairy Woodpecker 2
Downy Woodpecker 2
Black-capped Chickadee 25
Blue Jay 7
Goldfinch 20
Tree Sparrow 1
Junco 1
Mourning Dove 2
No nuthatches yet. The lack of spruce cones and seeds is likely a factor. I was 
at Cherry Pond at the Pondicherry NWR on Sunday and the pond was still open. 
There were 6 common mergansers, 4 bufflehead, 3 scaup species and 1 black duck. 


The Pittsburg CBC is next Wednesday 14 December with the Errol-Umbagog the 
following day.

A male BAGO was with a small flock of about 25 Common Goldeneye on the 
Connecticut River at Hinsdale Bluffs this morning. Birds (usually a single 
male) have been wintering here since about 1987, an almost 30 year spread.

Durham New Hampshire boat launch, Jackson landing, what I believe to be greater 
yellowlegs shooting into the sun hopefully I'll get a picture that will come 
out so I can tell. Isn't it a little late in the year for them to still be here 
especially this far up?

Hi all,
 We had a quick visit from what I’m 95% sure was an Audubon’s warbler this 
afternoon at 4:10 on Cushing Rd. in Newmarket. We had one visit us all winter 
Dec.-Apr. 2009. 

  We’ll post ASAP if he shows up tomorrow.
  Best,

I stopped by the Lake Sunapee State Beach in Newbury briefly this morning and 
despite a quiet migration season on the lake I was able to find four COMMON 
GOLDENEYE just off the beach. There were three males and one female. 

https://flic.kr/p/NAaqvs
https://flic.kr/p/NAaqw9

Also not far off shore was the second RED-NECKED GREBE of the season on the 
lake (for me). This bird hung around for me to fly back home and grab my camera 
for some documentation photos. 

https://flic.kr/p/NAaquW

In a side note, if someone wants to send some of these Red Crossbills seen 
across the state to the Sunapee area I'd appreciate it.

Steve, 
Linda Pivacek, Nahant, MA, here. I have seen Wilson's late in season before. 
However, one bird that I observed was in late December. It had distinctly new 
call, for me, and a black cap that was also somewhat different than I expected. 
So via recordings and expert opinion, it was determined to be a vagrant 
Wilson's sub species from west coast. 

I got a few birders together to feed it meal worms for the winter, through 
mid-february ( morning, noon, afternoon). So tame and dependent, this bird 
would land on your hands as you put meal worms into feeder. And also land on 
lens of photogs as they tried to get a shot. 

In any case, I have mixed emotions about these dependent vagrants. 
Best, Linda, #5

I forgot to post this.....sorry, but we found a cover for a Swarovski 
Spotting scope at North Hampton State Beach at the same time the 
Prothonotary Warbler was being seen, or the day after.

Please contact me if this is yours and we can arrange to get it back to you!

Came across a nice small flock of 13 Snow Buntings at the Fresh River Rd 
conservation area (behind the Lowes) in Epping this afternoon - they were on 
the ground together back in one of the open lots. 


Only other bird observed along with them was a single Mourning Dove.

Subject: Thanksgiving Weekend on the coast (Wilson's Warbler, Evening Grosbeak)
From: Steve Mirick <smirick AT comcast.net>
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2016 09:43:26 -0500
A late update about birding along the coast this weekend.  Not a lot to 
report, but a couple of things of interest.  Winter certainly is 
approaching quickly along the seacoast, and, although there hasn't been 
any real cold snaps or snow, the birds and landscape are more like 
winter.  Some photos and comments:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemirick/

MIGRATION - There were very small numbers of loons, DC Cormorants and 
goldfinches moving, but the only migration of note over the weekend were 
Canada Geese.  187 on Friday, 232 on Saturday, and 117 on Sunday.  
Mostly in flocks of 10 to 50 birds.  Cool to see (or hear!) the geese 
migrating on Saturday as they were moving south through thick fog on 
Saturday morning.  Unfortunately, nothing odd mixed in.  In addition to 
these birds, Jane and I scanned through about 2,000 Canada Geese on 
Great Bay on Saturday, but turned up nothing unusual.  Sigh.

WATERFOWL - Aside from the geese, there were scattered loons, scoters, 
long-tailed ducks, and bufflehead along the coast.  Not many eider, and 
no luck with the Harlequin Ducks reported at Seal Rocks.  Common 
Goldeneyes have yet to reach the ocean in any significant numbers; 
however, there are plenty on Great Bay with probably close to 75 or more 
there on Saturday.  No Barrow's noted. Red-necked Grebes are also far 
outnumbering Horned Grebes along the ocean as the Horned Grebes are 
still on inland lakes.  Great Bay has a bunch of American Wigeon 
scattered around the bay, but only a single EURASIAN WIGEON from Sunset 
Farm.  Lingering waterfowl include 2 Lesser Scaup on Eel Pond, 20+ 
Green-winged Teals in Meadow Pond in Hampton and a male Wood Duck across 
from Wallis Sands Beach.  Rumor has it there is a Gadwall and 2 
Shovelers at Exeter treatment plant, but we didn't get over there this 
weekend.

PELAGIC BIRDS - We spent a fair amount of time scanning far offshore on 
Friday and Saturday (when the fog lifted), but we didn't turn up too 
much.  A small number of Black Guillemots, which are expected, but 
surprisingly ZERO Razorbills.  Northern Gannets are still around, and 
there was a steady southbound flight of them on Sunday with about 25 
counted moving south.  Mostly adults.

RAPTORS - Slow weekend.  A single Merlin and Peregrine on Friday. Also a 
Northern Harrier in Stratham on Wednesday.  Otherwise, typical winter 
raptors and no Rough-legged Hawks or obvious migration.

PASSERINES - The biggest groups of song birds were around feeders this 
weekend; however there were a few birds of note.  Most interesting of 
all was a female EVENING GROSBEAK in Seabrook on Saturday.  Remarkably, 
one of my only records EVER of Evening Grosbeak along the coastal 
corridor.  No other northern finches, however.  No redpolls, no siskins, 
no crossbills, no purple finches.  Also, still zero shrikes along the 
coast.  Late, lingering birds of note included a GRAY CATBIRD at the 
parking lot at Beckman's Landing, a BROWN THRASHER at the north bunker 
at Odiorne, an AMERICAN PIPIT at the north side of Ragged Neck in Rye, 
and a very late female WILSON'S WARBLER in the south cove "Chat Cove" at 
Odiorne.  This bird was loosely associating with a couple of Song 
Sparrows and Juncos and was very active on the ground, foraging in the 
leaf litter.

Remarkably, it was last fall at this SAME LOCATION AND SAME DATE, where 
I found a Wilson's Warbler which lingered until November 29th.  I also 
have a single record from New Castle on November 28, 2010.  Another late 
bird was found by Scott Heron back in 2014 which was last reported on 
November 29th.  I've still never seen a Wilson's Warbler in December; 
however, there is one exceptional record from D. Abbott and P. Vickery 
on the Coastal Christmas Bird Count on December 17, 1983.

Found an immature Northern Shrike at Russell Abbott State Forest- off the

Subject: Leucistic House Finch - At a Feeder in Bedford, NH - Images by Homeowner

Hello Birders,

What I believe to be a Leucistic House Finch has recently showed up at a feeder 
in Bedford, NH. This came to my attention last night. 

A friend of a friend situation, I thought it worth reporting. It was last seen 
today. The images in my album are from the homeowner.

Thanks to Marc Bouchard for sharing this information about the passing of 
Roger Lawrence.

Steve Mirick
 

"Old timers" like Davis Finch, Denny Abbott, H. Cook Anderson and Paul 
Miliotus will remember Professor Roger Lawrence of St Anselm's College. A 
regular participant and contributor to ASNH birding trips in the 60's and 
70's.  There's a number of birders who cut their teeth with "Doc Lawrence", 
like Jerome Barry.

A few have asked about location of Stuart Farm. It is off Rt 108 in Stratham 
with the entrance just before reaching Chapman's Landing as you approach from 
Exeter. I have asked Sammy to let me know if the owl is there again today. If 
it is, I will ask the Merrills if it is OK for birders to go to the farm. They 
are usually welcoming but I would like to get permission from them first. 
Thanks.

Subject: Snowy Owl, Stratham
From: "Aaronian, Richard S." <raaronian AT exeter.edu>
Date: Sat, 19 Nov 2016 20:44:33 +0000
I saw the Snowy Owl today at 230 PM which was reported yesterday by Sammy 
Merrill at Stuart Farm. It was sitting in the field in the sun behind the 
concrete silo walls. 


After speaking with a member of the Merrill family, they would rather not have 
birders/photographers come to the farm. Parking is limited and to get to where 
the bird is being seen, would disturb the livestock and the dairy operation. 
Please respect the family's wishes and do not go to the farm. Thanks.

Observation start time: 09:00:00 
Observation end   time: 15:30:00 
Total observation time: 6.5 hours

Official Counter:        Katrina Fenton

Observers:        

Visitors:
64


Weather:
The 5-10mph East wind was strong enough in the morning to lend a slight
chill to the 50F temperatures. By the time the air had warmed to around
60F, the wind had died down to almost calm. A thin veil of cirrus out
towards Vermont was the only hint that there could be something coming to
end this stretch of blue sky and mild days.

Raptor Observations:
Most of the day today was a game of picking out the buteo from the
perpetually swarming ravens. Hawks rose from the east side of the Wapack,
met the ravens around the cliffs of North Pack, then dropped into a glide
when they reached the west side of the mountain. 

Non-raptor Observations:
Non-raptor Migrants:

Common Redpoll- 3
American Goldfinch- 1
Pine Grosbeak- 1
passerine sp.- 3

Predictions:
A thick sheet of fog and stratus will push in overnight with the passage of
a cold front. The forecast is currently calling for steady rain to end by
mid to late morning, followed by gusty West wind and a chance of some
drizzle and snow showers. If the cloud ceiling is high enough and there's
enough of a break between rounds of precipitation, we'll be able to get in
a final day of counting.

This morning's walk yield a remarkable (given recent trends) 32 species (my
highest this month), the highlight of which was the subject bird - with a
junco flock along Bog Road.

It also looks like Carolina Wrens may have moved back in. I had two this
morning and a different one yesterday, after a summer and fall during which
they were essentially absent.

Observers:        Glen and Alan Chretien, Henry Walters, Meade Cadot,
                  Miki Foley, Nancy Moreau

Weather:
Barely a trace of cloud marred today's crystalline blue sky. Mount
Washington loomed beyond the rest of the mountains, crevices still filled
with white though higher sections of rock had melted through. The wind was
out of the North, blowing at a somewhat brisk 10-15mph clip to start before
dying back to  barely a whisper. Temperatures began in the 40s and rapidly
rose to top out in the low 60s.

Raptor Observations:
Only one today, an accipiter that slipped through before the counter could
return to the platform. Thanks, Rachel, for spotting it!

Non-raptor Observations:
A chorus of coyotes serenaded us late in the morning, most voices singing
from well down ridge of us, with a few giving tongue from nearer corners of
the mountain in howled surround sound.

Non-raptor Migrants:
Snow Bunting- 3
American Goldfinch- 6
COMMON REDPOLL- 1


Predictions:
Tomorrow will be similar to today, just a few degrees cooler and the wind
will be out of the east instead of the north. There seems to be a good
chance that it may be the final day of the count, as the weather has been
looking questionable for Sunday.

I saw a barred owl on Perimeter Rd. next to the Manchester Airport yesterday at 
about 4:30pm. I sat and watched him for about 10 minutes from about 25 feet 
away.

Observation start time: 09:00:00

Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter:        Katrina Fenton

Observers:        Jeanne-Marie Maher

Visitors:
5.


Weather:
The day began nearly completely overcast and the rocky top of Monadnock
lost in the clouds. Over the course of the day, patches of blue grew, and
closed, and grew again at they were pushed along by the brisk, 15-20mph NW
wind. Some of the foothills of the Whites were visible, but most of the
more distant peaks were lost to haze or cloud. Temperatures peaked in the
upper 40s.

Raptor Observations:
The first Red-tailed Hawk showed up at 9:30, bombing along in front of the
platform to stay ahead of its raven escort. Eight more red-taileds and a
Northern Goshawk passed by in the hour that followed, then the flight
inexplicably dried to a 1-2 bird an hour trickle.

Non-raptor Observations:
Ravens popcorned on the updrafts, calling, dropping stones, and playing
with sticks. Over 40 of them played back and forth along the ridge between
Pack and North Pack, occasionally venturing over as far as Crotched. 

Non-raptor Migrants:
Herring Gull- 1

Predictions:
Tomorrow's forecast seems better suited for early October than
mid-November. The wind will be out of the NNW at 5-10mph, strongest around
late morning. Clear skies will allow the sun to warm the air to around 60.
Maybe thermals and a northerly wind will be enough of an incentive for
hawks to move, despite the mild temperature.

For the span of a few seconds, the right flank of North Pack was visible

Raptor Observations:
Nothing

Non-raptor Observations:
Common Ravens could be heard calling through the fog. The usual suspects
were frequenting the platform. There seems to have been a slight uptick in
the number of Dark-eyed Juncos overnight.

Good afternoon. 
It has been brought to my attention that NH Audubon's fall issue of Afield is 
listing for tonight, the 16th, a talk by Ted Levin on the timber rattlesnake 
hosted by the Mascoma Chapter at Hanover's Howe Library beginning at 7:00 p.m. 
That is incorrect. Ted is giving his timber rattler talk tonight, but it is 
scheduled to take place beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Nashua Public Library at 
2 Court Street in Nashua. More information about that talk can be found by 
clicking on this link. 
http://www.nhaudubon.org/calendar/category/nashaway-chapter/ 

The Mascoma Chapter's hosting of Ted's timber rattler talk is to take place 
beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Mayer Room of Hanover's Howe Library on Tuesday, 
December 13. 

Information on that forthcoming event can be found at:

First of the year Brown creeper. 
We have also had a Barred owl for the last three weeks who perches on top of a 
dead cedar we use to hang feeders, stays all day and has greatly decreased the 
rodentia in our yard!

Observation start time: 09:00:00 
Observation end   time: 15:00:00 
Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter:        Katrina Fenton

Observers:        Isabel Gottlieb, Jess Cosentino, Phil Brown

Visitors:
There were 7 visitors to the hawk watch today. Jess, Isabel, and Phil came
out for the final hour to close out the season. No hawks happened by while
everyone was at the platform, but a last bag of cider donuts was shared.  


Weather:
A band of light rain ended just as the hour turned for the count to start,
setting up a (mostly) dry day with a few bouts of drizzle in the morning
and steady rain holding off until shortly before 3pm. The sky and landscape
were a study of gray, save for the apple trees flaring in a ribbon of gold
across the hill. There was hardly enough wind to stir the cloud of insects
swarming over the platform, but every now and then a puff from the NNE
would come with just enough force to launch notepad and pencil off the
railing. Temperatures ranged from the low 40s through the mid 50s.

Raptor Observations:
The shrill piping for Black-capped Chickadee alarm calls announced the
arrival of the one and only raptor of the day, an adult male Cooper's Hawk
flapping high over the orchard.

Non-raptor Observations:
A total of 22 species were observed today, from finches bouncing south to
three species of woodpeckers working the tree line.

Non-raptor Migrants:

Mallard- 27
American Black Duck- 1
American Robin- 63
American Goldfinch- 30
Purple Finch- 4
COMMON REDPOLL- 2
passerine sp.- 34

Predictions:
Many thanks to everyone who played a part in this our 9th count season here
at Carter Hill; our hosts at the orchard, our sponsors, our visitors, our
stalwart crew of volunteers. It's been another awesome year!

Subject: Both Grosbeak species
From: Charlie Nims <charlie.nims AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 15 Nov 2016 18:33:02 -0500
This morning, Sheila McCarthy, Joe Scott, Rick Steber and I spent time visiting 
birding spots from Pinkham Notch north on Rte. 16 to Errol and then to the 
Magalloway River Trail. While the bird numbers were low, the quality was good. 
Tks to a tip from Kathy Dube, we had 9 Evening Grosbeaks in Milan. After that, 
we went to Chickwolnepy Rd. where we had 5 Pine Grosbeaks (including two red 
males) as well as 7 more Evening Grosbeaks. 


From there, we went to the “meat pile” off of Hill Rd. in Dummer. We had a 
great show there from a large number of Common Ravens and three Bald Eagles (an 
adult and 2 ~2nd year immatures). There are a lot of carcasses there, some 
still fully “furred” so I would expect the raptor numbers to increase. 


At Greenough Rd. north of Errol we had 4 Gray Jays and two more Bald Eagles 
(adults) on the river\lake shortly before reaching Greenough Rd. 


As we needed to be back early afternoon, we did not have time to fully explore 
the area to the degree we would have liked. Regardless, a very nice birding 
day! 


All reports are posted to eBird and photos will be added.

Total observation time: 3.5 hours

Official Counter:        Henry Walters

Observers:        

Visitors:
No visitors.


Weather:
Cloudy and mild, light breeze out of the north-east. Rain moved in to stay
about 12:30.

Raptor Observations:


Non-raptor Observations:
No color in the green-gray woods but rosy granite and the kinglet's yellow
crown-stripe. White-breasted Nuthatch made an uncommon appearance at the
birdseed pile. Pileated Woodpecker also dipped by, glancing back over his
shoulder. A phalanx of eight American Crows made a migration maneuver,
heading southwest.

Predictions:
Morning showers tomorrow, but the latter part of the week looks good. Auto
road now closed. Hike up to give Katrina a hand during the last few days of
the count! She needs 36 more birds to win a free dinner from the
late-season naysayers.

Subject: Grasshopper Sparrow, Woodmont Orchard, Hollis
From: Christopher McPherson <cmcpherson687 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 15 Nov 2016 12:27:41 -0500
A brief visit to Woodmont Orchard in Hollis this morning turned up a
Grasshopper Sparrow, this is the third record of GRSP in the orchard this
year, previous sightings were 13 August, 21 October and today (15
November).  Hollis has a long history of GRSP sightings starting back in
1876 (see Keith and Fox; The Birds of New Hampshire).  I welcome them back
and hope the trend continues!

A very cooperative bird:

Subject: Iceland Gull, Salem

I've had my eyes peeled for "the" Iceland Gull that has spent the last few
years wintering around Salem — I finally found it today at Hedgehog Pond.
This is probably the best place to find winter gulls around here,
considering that Rockingham park is no longer accessible.  It may actually
be better, with the landfill next door and all...

Also of note were a minimum of 63 Hooded Mergansers on Arlington Pond.

Drove up the coast yesterday.
Such a beautiful clear day.

Highlight was 3 Savannah Ipswich Sparrows hopping around 
in Rye State Park, Ragged Neck toward the ocean tip.
I added this cute little friendly bird to my life list.

On the coast from Hampton to Rye. --
4 Long Tailed  out a ways. -- Thanks to Linda's wonderful new spotting scope.
Common Loons-- also offshore
Surf and White Wing Scoters offshore.
yes lots of sea gulls.

It was such a joy to be outside in this nice Fall weather.

Subject: Birds of New Hampshire still available through ASNH
From: "Dana Duxbury-Fox" <danafox AT comcast.net>
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2016 04:01:14 -0500
Birders,

 

Just in case you do not have your own copy yet -  Birds of New Hampshire by
Keith and Fox is still available through the Audubon Society of New
Hampshire's (ASNH) Concord office (or through me at the same price with the
same money going to New Hampshire Audubon).  Only ASNH and Buteo Books have
it for sale.

 

It makes a great holiday gift and is a real treasure of historical
information as you can see from Phil Brown's Raven sightings to the list
just yesterday.

 

All the best,

Dana

Subject: weekend birds - Monadnock Region; BIG raven roost & hybrid duck
From: "'Phil Brown' via NHBirds" <nhbirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2016 04:05:43 +0000 (UTC)
I checked a few local spots this weekend for waterfowl, but the highlight was 
finding a raven roost near Powder Mill Pond in Hancock.  

On 11/11, between 415-445 pm, I watched 133 ravens come in to roost mainly in 
three groups of 30-50 birds, each making directional movements south from 
Crotched Mountain and along the pond, and then west across the southern tip of 
the pond. From what I can tell, and a follow up visit tonight, there does 
appear to be a roost in the pines 1/4-1/2 mile west of where I stood along the 
road. Only 15 birds tonight in the same time frame, interestingly, but the 
rising moon over the pond was a consolation. According to Birds of New 
Hampshire and E-bird, it appears that the highest state tally of ravens is 157 
by Bob Quinn, Chris Martin, and Lisa LaPierre on the Pittsburg CBC in 2011. 


Other birds of note this weekend include:Greater Scaup - 9 hens at Powder Mill, 
11/11 and 13Red-breasted Merganser - 1 at Childs Bog in HarrisvilleCommon 
Mergansers - finally IN and in some numbers at a few placesCommon Goldeneye X 
Bufflehead hybrid - continuing bird at Tolman Pond, Nelson (first seen on 
10/31)Yellow-rumped Warbler - 1 at Keene Airport today

Observation start time: 09:00:00

Official Counter:        Katrina Fenton

Observers:        Frances Doyle, Mark Timmerman, Mike Gebo, Miki Foley,
                  Nancy Moreau, Scott Spangenberg

Visitors:
119.


Weather:
It took most of the morning for the wind to die down to the 10-15mph they
had forecasted. It was still whipping out of the West at 25-30mph when the
count began. Scant cloud cover disappeared completely by lunchtime, and
temperatures ranged from the upper 30s through the low 50s.

Raptor Observations:
Bald Eagles were moving early and throughout the day. There were five in
the first hour alone, starting with an adult and a four-year-old rising far
to the NW and heading for the Wapack in search of updrafts. Another adult
and a 2nd year were soon to follow, catching lift just west of Pack's
summit and streaming off. The four year old worked back and forth along the
ridge for a while, then was joined by another 2nd year and the two headed
south. The old Bald Eagle season record was reached and broken a couple of
birds later. 

Non-raptor Observations:
The usual suspects were around, but nothing but raptors for migrants.

Predictions:
It'll be downright toasty tomorrow with temperatures expected to near 60F.
The wind will be out of the WSW at 5-10mph, and there may be a few clouds
by late afternoon. Should be a comfortable day to spend on the mountain!

Visitors:
I had friends today!! For most of the day there was at least one other
observer on the platform. It makes the day way more awesome. About a dozen
non-official hawkwatch visitors to the platform. 


Weather:
Beautiful day! The morning started off overcast, but it quickly cleared and
most of the day there was not a single tiny cloud in the sky. Not too too
cold, some breeze but not nearly as windy as yesterday. I suppose the
weather forecasters were right, it was like yesterday's weather, only
warmer. I even unzipped some layers and took off my gloves. Whaaaat? 

Raptor Observations:
I had another morning teaser of two Sharpies and a Goshawk in the first
hour that got my hopes up for a big flight, which again, failed to
materialize. I did have a bird here and there throughout the day, a couple
more Red-tails, a couple more Sharpies, and a couple of eagles that I
couldn't say were migrating so they escaped the data for another day. 

Non-raptor Observations:
We had a snow bunting fly over, which was pretty cool! Other than that, our
usual suite of chickadees, titmice, juncos, robins, corvids and blue jays
were hanging around today. I ate 3 more donuts. 

Predictions:
Tomorrow should be the same, plus a couple degrees - high of 62!! Summer
version 5 or so, I've lost track.

Subject: MODERATOR'S MESSAGE - Please Read

A couple of reminders, especially to new subscribers to the list. There 
are now 877 members!

1) PLEASE DON'T ATTACH PHOTOS to emails!  The reason for this is that 
many people have limited data plans on their cell phones.  I love to see 
photos, but I ask that folks upload them to one of the popular photo 
sharing sites and then just share the link to the list.  A popular one 
among photographers in the group is Flickr. This is free and essentially 
unlimited storage.

https://www.flickr.com/

2) Please sign your messages with you name and town of residence. This 
is so that we can get to know other birders, especially new birders.

Thanks, and get out and enjoy the birds!!!

Wondering if these are Red Necked Grebes?  If not, what are they?
