What Woodpecker?

Recommended Posts

When I saw this bird in Cloudland Canyon State Park in Rising Fawn, Georgia on March 28, 2020, I thought it was finally my first Hairy Woodpecker.  When I got back home and processed the pictures, I talked myself out of that identification.  Now I am not even sure if it is a woodpecker.  Please help me ID this bird.  Sorry about the poor quality, but it was after sunset.

The first four photos are of a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. The last two photos are either a Downy or a Hairy -- it's tough to see details from these photos.

Agree with @akandula's IDs. In the last image the woodpecker seems to have a shorter bill which would make me lean Downy over Hairy, but it is very tough to see from these pictures.
