I do a great deal of my birding in my backyard, its not uncommon to have 15 species at my feeders on any given day.
St. Lawrence Co. is where I am located in the northern tier of the state,bordered by Canada. Robert Moses St. park offers wildlife viewing and some excellent birding. Its located on an island accessible by drive through tunnel, and attracts a great many waterbirds.
Some of the spieces that can be seen there are:
Red Tailed Hawks
Great Blue Herons
Double Breasted Commorants
several varieties of owls
several varieties of ducks
Eastern Wild Turkey
There are also many mammals such as
There are several varieties of snakes common to the area, but all are nonvenemous
If you care to venture below the surface of the water you can view an aquatic world rich in life. Some of the fish you could see are
There are also eels, some I have seen that are quite large
So there is a summary of this area of NY. An hours drive can have you in the mountains where there are also Bear, bobcat, occasionally Moose and cougar

Yep, dingoblu, I have to agree with you on most everything you said! Not uncommon to see over a dozen species in my backyard on any given day.
I live in Dutchess County, NY, and here in the town, I've catalogged over 50 species in my area alone! I have listed almost all of the birds in the Bird Locations database. The Location has the name "Stormville" in it, I forget the entire title. But You should check it out, and maybe if there's some birds in this list you haven't seen, I'd be glad to host you for a day out birding.
One question dingoblu, have you seen any red-headed woodpeckers in your area? because I'm unsure, though optimistic, that I'll see one in my area!
