Yes, the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at my feeders was female, immature, and with the brownish feathers. I live within 5 miles of St. Anthony's cemetery (actually less, as the Sapsucker flies), so it could very well be the same bird that you saw.
Someone who lives near upper Treman Park contacted me off-list to say that she has had a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at her feeder all winter.
