Phil Silas and I birded in Richardsville SE Atlas block this morning, in Culpepper Co. This block is quite isolated and surrounded by the Rappahannock and Rapidan rivers. Mostly wooded with some cut-over pine plantations(?). We tallied 44 species and confirmed breeding for 11. Highlights were a yellow-billed cuckoo sitting on a nest, a male northern parula feeding a fledgling, a family of orchard orioles, a fledgling scarlet tanager with a few downy feathers still present, and a female black-and-white warbler.
