As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

RARE BIRD SIGHTINGS USA: This week's Rare Bird Alert

This is New Hampshire Audubon’s Rare Bird Alert for Monday, Feb. 10.

A spotted towhee was spotted in Rye on Jan. 25, and has been seen many times since then. It was last reported on Feb. 9. It has been seen foraging on the ground in the scrub on the corner nearest the traffic island at the intersection of Central Road and Route 1A. An eastern towhee was seen in North Hampton on the 1st.

At least four snowy owls continued to be reported in New Hampshire during the past week including one along the coast in Rye, two in the Hampton and Seabrook marsh areas, and unconfirmed sightings in Bow and Lancaster.

Ten razorbills and two black guillemots were seen along the coast on Feb. 9.

A northern shrike was seen on Airport Road in Laconia, and one was seen in Ashland, both on Feb. 9.
