We've had a very unusual Hairy Woodpecker coming to our suet feeder in
recent days.  It has yellow-orange feathers in place of the usual white
feathers on its lower parts and head stripes.  We do not think the feathers
are stained, but rather the actual color of the feathers.  The bird is a
male and his red cap is normally plumaged, as are the black feathers.
