Finding Birding Locations in New Hampshire

This website provides descriptions and maps of eBird Hotspots in New Hampshire. In eBird, Hotspots are shared locations where birders may report their bird sightings to eBird. Hotspots provide birders with information about birding locations where birds are being seen.

Hotspots are organized by county. If you know the county of a location, click on the county name in the Alphabetical list of New Hampshire Counties to access information about birds and all the eBird hotspots in that county.

If you do not know the county, select a hotspot from the Alphabetical list of New Hampshire Hotspots. Or use the “magnifying glass” search icon on the upper right to find a hotspot. Enter all or part of a hotspot name.
