Pardon my lack of descriptiveness. Yes, it's marked very much like either; Downy or Red Cockaded but it is very small. It is about the size of a small sparrow with the black and white scattered throughout; pale underside, if I remember correctly (often I don't, unfortunately); black cap; doesn't have a mask or any red on it. Definitely a Woodpecker, though, as it's rather amusing to watch it hammering away at the sides of the feeder sometimes. Trying to get a photo, today, is rendered more difficult with nearby kids blowing off fireworks... sigh. I'd be happy to field any other questions that may enlighten me as I'm definitely a novice, though learning. FYI... birds we're currently enjoying to see in our yard: Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, Goldfinches, House Finches, Cowbirds, Cardinals, Grackles, Pileated Wookpecker, Downy Woodpecker, misc Sparrows and Doves, Red Winged Blackbird, Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse, and more. We're on the edge of town but border tallish, heavily wooded hills (deer, coons, possums, rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional woodchuck run about, especially later in the evening). I've only been getting into birdwatching a couple of years and am really enjoying it.
