My friend Howard came north to NH to join me in a Conn River  
marathon. Two days ... many hours ... lots of wind! But the sunshine  
was welcome. We journeyed from Springfield VT ... through NH ... to  
Turners Falls MA.

Howie and I had a great journey. Saw a few FOYs and Howie picked up a  
few lifers.

Here's the report... sorry it covers multiple states and rambles  
on... 55 total species
