Birding Outside of Westchester County

The Adirondacks

I like to split the "dacks" into two birding regions; High Peaks and the Inlet/Old Forge Area. The High Peaks Region is where you can set up base camp in or near Lake Placid for great restaurants, accommodations, shopping and sightseeing with great birding areas like Bloomingdale Bog nearby. The Inlet area has the famed "Ferd's Bog" and Moose River Plains area. Both areas have the boreal species your looking for. If you don't find them in one area travel the couple of hours to the other to change your luck.

Adirondack Park - Lake Placid/Saranac Area, Bloomingdale Bog area, and Ferd's Bog area
A great summer destination for breeding warblers, boreal species and sightseeing.

Bloomingdale Bog

Adirondack Park - Inlet Blue Mountain Lake/ Old Forge areas
if you miss the boreal species north of here, visit Ferd's Bog for you best opportunity to see Gray Jays, Boreal Chickadees, and Black-backed and Three-toed Woodpeckers.
