SummerWings: Boreal Birding Weekend


Come Explore the north country of New Hampshire to connect with a variety of boreal birds

The Boreal Birding Weekend a small group (limit 7), guided birding experience with Dan Gardoqui. Over the weekend, Dan will share some fabulous birding hotspots, identification tips, bird language insights, stories, ecological context and much more – as we travel to many habitats to observe our winged neighbors. Coos County is home to breeding boreal birds such as Black-Backed Woodpecker, Canada Jay, Fox Sparrow, Philadelphia Vireo and the rare Bicknell’s Thrush.* In addition, we’ll spend time near lakes, ponds and rivers that are home to Common Loons, Ring-Necked Ducks and Common Merganser. Finally, the rolling fields of the region often host Bobolink, Savannah Sparrows, Eastern Meadowlark, Northern Harrier and American Kestrel.


Weekend Schedule

  • Friday (on your own): I suggest you arrive in the Colebrook, NH area on Friday afternoon to check-in and enjoy the area before getting to bed early.
  • Saturday: we’ll begin the day with early morning birding (6am) that will take us up to noontime. After a break for lunch, we’ll bird into the afternoon,  wrapping up around 3pm. You’ll have time to go back to your lodging, rest up and eat dinner before our evening trip to Dixville Peak for a little high-elevation, sunset birding.
  • Sunday: we’ll begin a tad later (7ish), then bird all day in the field until about 3pm again. We’ll wrap up in the Colebrook, NH area.

*There are no guarantees of which wildlife species we will see or hear.
