Hi, I took this shot today at San Luis Obisbo area, California, the beak looks little bit long and the bird was in the same tree as Acorn Woodpecker and it looks the same size, so i am guessing it is Hairy.

Just want to confirm.

With that huge bill, I agree with Hairy Woodpecker!

Plus the clean white tail feathers supports Hairy.
