it's not a downy or hairy for sure.From what i can see it does not look like Ladder Back either.
Nutalls seems to be the right fit.

I don't see the white back characteristic of hairy/downy woodpecker

Thanks David, but unfortunately this one was not camera friendly at all. These two unclear pictures are all I have !

It's tough to tell if it's a downy or hairy woodpecker. Do you have a better picture that shows the length of the bill? This may help you, too.
