This is the second of my re-edited Birding trip reports.
This was a birding trip made for a couple of days either side of a three week Costa Rica birding trip that I was guiding back in 2006 (two Costa Rica trip reports coming soon).
This was a really good introduction to American birding with a nice range of familiar and some new species. The highlight was (for me at the time) my lifer Snowy Owl. A really huge bonus bird! Virginia was a really beautiful state scenically and a very nice spot for birding.
