This not a "woodpecker," but it is either a Red-naped Sapsuckers, whose territory is the Rockies and West, or, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, whose territory is Eastern, but with sporadic sightings in the West. But, to quote David Sibley, on p. 310-311, in a footnote on the latter, "Note that any hypbrid combination of the three species is possible." Needless to say, I'll defer to any real expert.
