Dear Mr. Hunn:
I live in West Seattle. Today, I saw a bird at our suet feeder which, per
Sibley's, is an Acorn Woodpecker. I have never seen a bird like this
before. A friend who is an experienced "birder" said I should report the
sighting to Audubon Rare Birds. She further advised me to try to get a
picture of the bird if I see him again, which I will do.
