Stealth birding in Virginia
This past weekend I had to go down to Lexington, Virginia for a family get together. Not a lot of time for birding. Actually, no real time for birding, so I had to get my Bird RDA on Saturday and Sunday on the sly. Not many birds on the freeway. Fortunately, birds were singing in Lexington, so I was able to get such goodies as Great Crested Flycatcher and Gray Catbird while nobody was looking! Eastern Bluebirds outside my hotel window, and a Pileated Woodpecker flying across Highway 11 right in town were highlights.
