Recently Lochaber had a rare visitor.
A red-bellied woodpecker was spotted visiting bird feeders on both sides of the lake.
The red-bellied woodpecker is common in the eastern United States, but Nova Scotia is far out of its range.
Here are a few photos of the red-bellied woodpecker visiting a Lochaber bird feeder on December 11, 2011.
