Fred and I spent a day in the Great Falls area. In the early afternoon, we were at a friend's house in Great Falls, where I saw (and heard)a pileated woodpecker and a red shouldered hawk. Then, we drove the short trip to Great Falls National Park, where we joined the crowds walking along the river. This heron was fishing just below the falls. Later, walking along the remnants of the Potowmack Canal, we watched a pileated woodpecker searching for insects in a fallen log near the path. When we left, he was still there.
