Hey Tweets,
Gazing out the window, I saw an odd sight for the West-side of the Cascades.
A female Hairy Woodpecker with clean white breast.
She was accompanied by a west-side male, with the usual "moldy" gray breast feathers.
Very strikingly different.

Could she be migrating and got lost?
Does anyone know the migration patterns (if any) for Hairy Woodpeckers?
I do not recall seeing an east-side Hairy over here before.
Anyone else?
