[Bristol-Birds] Road Trip - Western Tanager, Eurasian Wigeon, Calliope Hummingbird

Dave Worley and I decided to make a road trip to try and locate some of the 
rarities that have been showing up in the eastern parts of Virginia. We left at 
5:30am on the 22nd and returned to Russell County at 9:00 pm on the 23rd. We 
had 6 target birds: Western Tanager and Eurasian Wigeon in Williamsburg; 
Painted Bunting and Townsend's Solitaire in the Harrisonburg area; Calliope 
Hummingbird in Lynchburg; and Short-eared Owl in several locations. The first 
day was easy as we went 3 for 3. We picked up the Western Tanager, Eurasian 
Wigeon and Short-eared Owl. The second day was more challenging and thanks to 
the Calliope Hummingbird we were not skunked. I have posted some of the trip 
photos on pbase at the following address:
