[va-bird] Red-headed Woodpecker at Fort C.F. Smith Park, Arlington

VA Birders,

    About mid-morning, while I was talking to Fort C. F. Smith Park Manager 
Scott Deibler, who is also a birder, we saw an adult Red-headed Woodpecker fly 
into a nearby tree.  Unfortunately, it only stayed there briefly, but I was 
able to get a quick look with my binoculars to confirm that it had a red head 
in 
addition to the white wing patches we saw when it flew in.  Other highlights 
among the 32 species I saw at the park today were Chestnut-sided and Magnolia 
Warblers, and a Red-eyed Vireo that actually stood in the Bird Stream long 
enough to get a couple of drinks.
