Not sure what this is

This bird was seen in late August in a Northwest suburb of Columbus Ohio. I'm not sure what it was doing as someone passed me the picture to see what it is.

Downy Woodpecker

Looks like the downy woodpeckers that come to my peanut feeders. The mature males will have a red bar on the back of their heads. But the females and juveniles don't. They are common in the Northeast; not sure if that is true for the Northwest.

I was thinking this is a woodpecker because of its bill, but I wasn't sure.

Thanks!
