Sorry I don't have a photo yet, but I've been noticing this female Pileated in my area for a few weeks. I thought she looked really dirty, with brown on the sides. Today with my bins I realized she's got some differently colored feathers. They may be on the wings. I almost got a photo, but she flew, of course! She does visit my suet feeders and perches on poles nearby, so I hope to get a photo soon.
Anyone else ever seen this coloration?
