If I could, I surely would.  She's a stunningly beautiful bird, with 
that deep chocolate brown and dark red and the elegant long tail.

>> Subject: Acadian Flycatcher Danby FOur Corners
>>
>> An Acadian Flycatcher is at 210 Old Otis Road,   Danby Four Corners, South Western Rutland County.   I located it in the little marsh between 210 and the little cemetery inside a stone wall, about .8 mile from Danby Pawlet Rd intersection.  There is room for several cars at the cemetery, walk back down to dip in road over culvert and wait for it's  a loud " PSWEET" call.  It calls from high up ( book say mid-story)  Note there are also Alder and Willow Flycatchers in the vicinity also.     It has been frequenting the clump of large mostly dead limb poplars in the middle of the swamp, tops of birches that are higher than the alders or the popular that ring the swamp.    Small flycather with loud  note,  tri colored underside.  Grey upper breast, followed by white and yellow belly.  Bi colored bill, and long primary wing projection.
