ID - Hairy or Downy Woodpecker?

Recommended Posts

First time seeing this bird from my Brooklyn apartment window today and was stunned by how pretty it was.  

I think I am correct in identifying it as either a Hairy or a Downy woodpecker, but I’d love to know which one it is. 

It was in an oak tree outside my window and then flew to my suet cake feeder. 

The suet cake feeder measures 5.6” x 4.8” for size reference.
