My uncle (who kindly invited me to spend a few days with him in West Virginia after the New River Festival), recently sent me an email:
"We were at the cabin for the long holiday weekend when we saw a bird that was smaller than a chicken. I said it could be a Cornish Hen, but I wanted to check with you and see if we were in their range".
A Cornish Hen? That would have been a lifer for me.
Hee, hee, hee....
