Birding in New Hampshire

April 19, 2023

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

With habitats ranging from coastal salt marsh to alpine tundra, New Hampshire hosts a wide diversity of birds for a state its size, and a hard-core birder might be able to tally 300 species in a single year. Pam Hunt, senior biologist for avian conservation at New Hampshire Audubon, will lead us on a quick tour of the Granite State, talk about the wonderful places to bird there, and some of the more noteworthy birds you might expect to see.

Please register here. You will receive a zoom link the day before the workshop.


Pam Hunt has been interested in birds since the tender age of 12 when an uncle took her to Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge in NJ. She earned a B.S. in biology from Cornell University, M.A. in zoology from the University of Montana, and a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College in 1995. Pam came to NH Audubon in 2000 after five years as adjunct faculty at Colby-Sawyer College in New London. In her current position as Avian Conservation Biologist, she works closely with NH Fish and Game to coordinate and prioritize bird research and monitoring in the state and also authored NH’s “State of the Birds” report. Specific areas of interest include habitat use by early successional birds (particularly whip-poor-wills), conservation of aerial insectivores (e.g., swifts and swallows), and the effects of events outside the breeding season on long-distance migrants. Pam also coordinated the “NH Dragonfly Survey,” a five-year project that mapped distributions of these insects throughout the state and remains active in the dragonfly field.
