A first State-record for New York was reported this week in the form of a Couch's Kingbird.
This species is typically seen in the Rio Grande Valley region of southernmost Texas !
Even more surprising is that the bird was found in downtown Manhattan's Greenwich Village !
Here's a link to a New York Post article on the rarity
And the 10000birds page with the back-story & more photos
My favorite pic from Corey's, showing the diagnostic chin & culmen.

A Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker was also present, as was a Downy Woodpecker.
