Nope... the female has the red/white head too. Just a smaller red spot. This is a female Williamson's Sapsucker.

Could be.... I'm not a birding expert but, the white on the wings make me think it could be a juvenile Yellow bellied?

Thanks Chato, I posted it on their forum. They are saying a Juvenile Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
