Thx everyone, correction made!
Common name for downy woodpecker is "Picoides pubescens"
Downy woodpecker is not a scientific name it's a average name that everybody calls it.
I agree that it is a downy. You can compare the beak sizes http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/downy... http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Hairy...
This is either a hairy woodpecker or a downy woodpecker,
