Adirondack Park Bird Alerts
Hey, gang!

Well, my family has been planning to buy a cabin in Upstate New York for the last week or so. It's located in Edinburg, which is in Adirondack Park in Northern New York.

So far, I've seen only a really large flycatcher (either an Eastern Phoebe or an Olive-Sided Flycatcher). But I tried's Rare Bird Alerts, but their servers are down indefinitely, so I am looking for information on what species I can expect to see in Adirondack Park.

I know that there is a possibility of seeing a Black-Backed Woodpecker and Boreal Chickadee, and was wondering if there were any other species seen up there!

Thanks for all your help!

I just checked the bird database, and both Eastern Phoebe and Olive-Sided Flycatcher seem to have a dark vest. Are they very similar looking, or can they easily be distinguished?

Because I have some rather fair-quality photographs of a flcyatcher with a dark vest (first thought was Phoebe, but it was pretty big, bigger than I remember most Phoebes). I could post the pictures later.
