Each January the “Twitchers” birding team takes part in an annual competition called the Superbowl of Birding. In 2022 things are back to almost normal and the Twitchers will have their largest team ever of six people – all past participants. Becky Suomala and Pam Hunt will be co-captains joined by Unity Dienes (a first-timer last year), Susan Wrisley and Jenna Pettipas of last year’s “Twitch-n-Dip” team, and long-timer Kathryn Frieden. The competition will take place on January 29, 2022. It will still involve looking for as many species as possible in 12 hours in Essex County, MA and/or Rockingham County, NH.

The Twitchers will be one team in one vehicle (unlike last year) and as usual they will be in one town on the New Hampshire coast. The strategy is under development so stay tuned. Support the Team with a pledge! All monies go to support New Hampshire Bird Records and NHeBird.
