Subject: [VA-bird] Top Atlasing Locations: Far Southwest Virginia (and Global Big Day!)
Spanning from Tazewell to Cumberland Gap, far southwest Virginia features
some of the wildest, most rugged and beautiful scenery on the East Coast.
With Grayson Highlands State Park to the east and Breaks Interstate Park to
the west, the area is home to Virginia’s three highest peaks and the
deepest canyon east of the Mississippi River.

Here, Region 7 coordinator Steven Hopp gives us the inside scoop on the
area’s best birding spots for a summer Atlasing adventure:

Also, don't forget about Cornell's Global Big Day tomorrow! Observations
report to the VA BBA eBird portal DO COUNT towards your Big Day rankings,
so be sure to report your observations at and
don't forget those breeding codes!

Happy Big Day, Folks!
