David Weaver and I took a bunch of intrepid birders up in the
north country on 2/21-22/2013.
We birded up Route 16 in New Hampshire to just north of Errol,
stayed overnight in Colebrook,
spent a few hours birding the Wenlock WMA (Moose Bog) in Vermont's
Northeast Kingdom, and
then headed south with stops in Bethlehem and Bow, NH. We had
a lot of fun!
Here are a few of my pix
from that trip:
Pinkham Notch Visitor
Center feeder birds included Common Redpolls,
and Red-breasted Nuthatch.
We met up with Kathy Dube
in Berlin and birded the Berlin-Milan area.
We had lots of great birds in the light snowfall, including Snow
Buntings at a horse farm,
who were enjoying the
products of the Belgians,
Yummo. Along with the
Snow Buntings, we had a Horned Lark and a Lapland Longspur.
The horses were curious
about us and so we got to practice horse-dodging so that we could
see the birds,
On Chickwolnepy Road,
we had lots of redpolls and some Pine Grosbeaks, including adult
The next day, at Wenlock
WMA in Vermont, we had Boreal Chickadees and very attentive Gray
We had a great walk on
and near Trudeau Road in Bethlehem, NH, where we had Red and White-winged
Our last birding stop
was to check on reports of a Varied Thrush visiting a feeding
station in Bow, NH.
After less than 30 minutes, the bird flew into the yard, high
in a tree, sussed us out as we sat in the vans,
and then left. But all of us got to see this wanderer, and I got
a shot for the record.
All in all, a very good
trip! Thanks to all of the participants!
