NH Birding

Yesterday I spent the day birding the NH coast from Odiorne Point State Park down to Hampton Harbor. I ran into many helpful people who pointed out good areas to go and got a great tour of the birding spots on the coast from Mr. NH Bird Man, and capped off the day by attending a talk on the birds of Venezuela.
Here's my list from the day:
Common Eider*
Mute Swan
Horned Grebe*
Black Guillemot*
Double Crested Cormorant
Herring Gull
Ring-Billed Gull

Juvy Great Black Backed Gull(Pink Legs, Pink base of bill, black tip)

Great Black-Backed Gull
Laughing Gull
Bonapare's Gull
Common Tern
Black Tern? (unconfirmed)
Semipalmated plover
Semipalmated sandpiper
least sandpiper
white rumped sandpiper
short billed dowitcher
ruddy turnstone
great egret
snowy egret
lesser yellowlegs
greater yellowlegs
black bellied plover
green heron
fish crow

And not at the coast but down the road from Durham in Newmarket....

Mississippi kite*

I hope to drop by with my camera to take some photos of the 3 Kites later today.
