(OK, sorry, I know DC isn't in Virginia but it's close!)

I noted that an influx of migrants had been reported on the Natioinal Mall in 
DC recently. This afternoon around 5:30 as I walked along the canyon between 
2 buildings at Federal Triangle, I heard the unmistakeable "See-See-See!" call 
of a GC Kinglet. I stopped and looked up in the foliage of one of the few 
landscape locust trees planted there and, after a few seconds, spotted the 
rascal sure enough, not far above my head. Meanwhile passers-by began to slow 
down and look up to try to figure out what I was looking at... Anyway, it was 
unexpected and fun to hear and see in the urban core environment. Cheers,
