Fittingly given the month, I have migrated to ericmasterson.comĀ  There will be no more posts to this site. Thank you.

I am leading a trip for the Harris Center to Star Island, Saturday May 18th, with likely one additional trip, date to be determined.

Star Island is a migrant trap, with little tree cover for birds to hide in. In addition, most birds are tired and focused on feeding, allowing stunning views of many of New Hampshire’s breeding birds that are difficult to see on territory. See previous trip reports at:


The boat departs from Rye Harbor Marina at 8 a.m., with a return to the dock at 1 p.m. Bring warm clothes (sea surface temperatures are still cool in late May), binoculars, camera, lunch, and water. Cost for members is $60 for Harris Center members, $75 for non members.

Carpooling can be arranged.


I will be moving to a new website effective May 2013, http://www.ericmasterson.com
