Hi,

At about 8 AM this morning at SW Angle and 11th Street where the Prairie
Warbler was seen, Chuck Philo saw a bird flying high overhead and straight
from the area of the Newport City Hall towards the bayfront. From its
altitude, it didn't look like it would have landed at the bayfront. At
first, he thought the bird was a flyover Lewis' Woodpecker based on its
flying characteristics and somewhat shorter tail. He took 2 photos. He
got home and saw from the photos that it was a Whited-headed Woodpecker.
