Northumberland County Winter Bird List for 2020-21

This I know is a double posting for many but Dave’s email list is not quite the same as that for Nature Miramichi.

Hi Everyone,

We ended up with 75 species on the 2020-21 Northumberland County Winter Bird List, just three shy of the 78 record set in 2017-18, the year of the Mistle Thrush at Peter and Deana’s in Newcastle. This year will go down as the year of the Tufted Titmouse at Bill Carroll’s in Loggieville!

Five more species were reported since the Feb. 1 preliminary report of 70 species. These were the Cooper’s Hawk (2 occurrences with photos), Carolina Wren (photo), Red Crossbill (photo), Ring-necked Pheasant (photo), and Boreal Chickadee, missed earlier on Dec. 13 when Vanessa Hébert posted her sighting to eBird. Please refer to the attached list for further details.

There’s also a chance that someone has seen a species in Northumberland County from Dec. 1 to Feb. 28 that is still missing from the list. Some possible examples are: Northern Goshawk, Red-tailed Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Horned Lark, Lapland Longspur, or other warbler species. If anyone has seen or heard any of these or others, please email me with the date. location, and if possible, a photo at: mcleodda

Thanks to all for making this winter so successful bird-wise!
