Kites in New Hampshire

Kites in New Hampshire

Mississippi Kites have been recorded nesting in southeastern New Hampshire since 2008 and NH Bird Records has had several articles updating the status of these birds in summer issues from 2017 through 2020. But nothing can compare with that first confirmed sighting of a breeding pair! Get a feel for the excitement of that first year (and learn why, in retrospect, they may have been here since 2004) in the Summer 2008 Issue of New Hampshire Bird Records (“Mississippi Kites in New Hampshire” begins on page 34).

Other articles in this issue include: Fledgling Vocalizations of New England Landbirds, Photo Gallery–A Visit to New Hampshire’s Tern Colony, photos and field notes from the 2008 summer season, and an interesting Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!

From all of us at New Hampshire Bird Records,

Stay Safe – Stay Healthy!

New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.
