Tried looking through all the woodpecker images on the internet but couldn't get a good match. Nearest I thought maybe was a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker but the markings aren't exactly right...

Thanks again

This is a male Williamson's Sapsucker, great bird!

Thanks for the ID - this is my first vacation in the USA that I have been photographing birds and it has been a great experience so far.
