Wildlife experts say the recent flooding shouldnt pose a grave danger to any of New Hampshires bird species, and could even end up helping some. Piping plovers the endangered seabirds that build nests on the ground in Hampton and Seabrook may have had their nests washed over. But officials say the birds likely will build new ones as the water subsides. Loon nesting doesnt hit its peak until June, so they also arent expected to be greatly affected. Kate Taylor of the Loon Protection Committee in Moultonborough says flooding may actually help preserve the loon population because the bad weather means fewer boaters out on lakes putting the birds in danger.
