Around 11am today, I first heard and then saw an Olive-Sided Flycatcher near
the Belvidere/Eden town line on Route 118.
From the intersection of Routes 109 and 118 east/northeast of Belvidere
Corners, go east on Rte 118 (headed towards Eden) and go roughly a quarter
mile or so and on the left/north side of the road you will see an unmarked dirt
road. Take this road into the alder swamp until you see a wooden bridge. Park
near the bridge (off the road as a logging truck came through while I was
there) and continue walking in. I heard the bird calling to the east, just across
the bridge, and eventually located it perched on top of a dead spruce. Lots of
other good birds in the area, to include the area south of Rte 118.
The road here is a little rough but is passable even with low riding cars. The
bridge I mention above is maybe a quarter mile in.
