Alright the opinions have this one as being a hairy woodpecker. Thanks y'all! Spotted this guy hiking. He didn't shy away from us at all.

Thanks Christy & Noah - I've adjusted the name to Hairy Woodpecker.

I agree with Christy: the length of the bill tells it is a hairy woodpecker, not a downy.

I believe that's a hairy woodpecker...beautiful! They're fairly common here, but very skittish...hard to capture a good pic!!
