Founded in 1873, the Nuttall Ornithological Club was the first organization in North America devoted to ornithology. During the Club’s 125 years, its members have included the premier names in the field of ornithology, such as William Brewster, Ludlow Griscom, and Roger Tory Peterson. A primary goal of the club is to publish ornithological literature. Meetings are held monthly at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and feature speakers from all areas of ornithological expertise.

A permanent, stable reference for the future. The scholarly work in this book is a goldmine . . . the species accounts . . . form succinct portraits in space and time of bird distribution throughout the state and neighboring regions, particularly Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont. Because they are so well researched, the accounts provide a firm foundation on which to study the ever-shifting dynamics of our avifauna.

Serious New England birders will devour The Birds of New Hampshire. It is nothing short of a landmark publication about the ornithology of our region.
