DC birder Greg Gough found and reported the bird to the DC GroupMe text around 10:00 last Saturday the 25th. I arrived on the scene around 10:30 and we eventually refound the bird. Others began to arrive and we continued debating the ID (out of an abundance of caution) as our view of the bird was partially obscured at the time. I then sent out word to the Va community when we became more certain.
Tide Lock Park is frequented by DC birders as a good spot for waterfowl given our limited resources in DC proper. I hope that this helps and that the falcon sticks for others to enjoy.
