Gorgeous Redhead in Central Park

How to find her -- well, it's a him:

Red-headed Woodpecker- 4/14/07

Here's today's report from Joe DiCostanzo of the American Museum of Natural History:
Red-headed Woodpecker (adult) same tree as yesterday. As you go west on the paved trail from the small bridge at the south end of the Azalea Pond, the Gill is on your left (south). Yesterday and today the Red-headed was in the largest tree on the left side just off the trail (tall, very straight trunk). The bird is very uncooperative; it stays high in the tree and is often difficult to see. In the same tree we had several American Redstarts, a male Black-throated Blue Warbler, a Black-and-white Warbler and two Red-eyed Vireos.
