Bicknell’s Thrush Tours

Early morning tours to see this rare bird! May 31, June 6 and 9

Bicknell’s Thrush is an extremely rare species with very limited breeding grounds. It is the rarest and most secretive of the breeding thrushes in North America and it is the only bird whose breeding is restricted to the Northeastern part of the continent. They usually breed at higher elevations, normally nesting above 3,000 ft. The unique and harsh climate is just what the birds prefer due to the combination of low vegetation and abundant moisture. The Mt. Washington Auto Road offers you a rare opportunity to view these  obscure birds.

Our Bicknell’s Thrush Guided Tours leave early in the morning before the Mt. Washington Auto Road opens to the general public to insure there is as little additional noise or disturbance as possible. Our success rate at hearing and seeing this elusive thrush is quite good, but with the species in decline due to wintering habitat losses, there can be no guarantee of sightings.

Tours depart from the base of the Auto Road at 6:00am and last approximately 2 hours.

Cost: $50 per person. Advanced reservations required.

AMC Pinkham Notch Presents: Bicknell’s Thrush & Sustainable Development

Guest speaker Mary Ann McGarry, Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Policy at Plymouth State University, will present “The Bicknell’s Thrush and Sustainable Development.”

A rare native songbird — the Bicknell’s Thrush — has failed to be listed as a threatened species; however, data collected will inform ongoing conservation efforts.

This bird serves as a catalyst for considering how NH is linked to sustainable development in our home state as well as on the island of Hispaniola where Haiti and the Dominican Republic are co-located. The Bicknell’s Thrush breeds in the high peaks of NH and winters in the forests on Hispaniola. Saving this species means protecting its habitat in two regions and solving complex issues related to race, poverty, deforestation and natural resource management. Although the challenges are great, learn what is being done to raise awareness at both ends of the birds’ migratory route.

Pinkham Happenings Programs begin at 8 p.m. and are free and open to all. Call to find out more or to be added to our monthly email list: (603) 466-2721 or outdoors.org/pinkhamhappenings
