Birding by Canoe

  • North Shore Rd. N Shore Rd Hebron, NH, 03241 United States

To get a loon’s-eye view of the woods, we’ll have to paddle out on the water with them! If we don’t find them displaying to one another—a performance that has been described as “bill-dipping, splash-diving, and penguin-dancing”—we’ll expect to see them sitting on eggs, being careful not to disturb them. Nesting eagles should also be visible from the water. Best of all, the lake will act as a natural amphitheater, collecting all sorts of bird-song from the surrounding woods. We’ll start our morning on foot at Hebron Marsh, looking for Bobolink, Wilson’s Snipe, various flycatchers, and Pied-billed Grebe. Meet at the parking area at the junction of Cross Rd. and North Shore Rd. at 8:00 a.m.
