Short trip to Eastern USA Next Week

I'm making a short trip to the Eastern USA from 15th-28th September, flying in and out of Newark. I'm going to drive south first maybe to Cape May and Blackwater Reserve then spend a few days sightseeing in DC. I then plan to spend a few days hiking, either in the Appalachians in or around Virginia or going right up north to Vermont/Maine to catch the fall colours. Birding will definitely be on the agenda and I'd be grateful for any extra advice on where to go. The following would all be new for me, although I appreciate I'm not likely to get more than a fraction of them, and no doubt spring would have been better than fall:

Eastern Whip-poor-will
Yellow-billed Cuckoo
