Woodpecker/Sapsucker - California, not a good image, but would love your guesses!

Recommended Posts

I took this in my backyard, thinking it was a Nuttall's or Downy which I see all the time.  It is neither based on color pattern I see.  It also does not appear to follow the red pattern for the Red-breasted Sapsucker as it appears that the top of the head may be black.  Wish I had more but can you help me guess?  Is it just a shadow on the head and its a Red-bellied Sapsucker or is it something else, not sure what else it could be....Image taken Sept 25th this year.
