Trying to ID

This showed up at my hummingbird feeder in eastern Pennsylvania. I thought it was a woodpecker, but the markings don't exactly match the ones I've researched. Any ideas?

Your Woody is giving you a very funny look. What a comical character!

Thank you Judy. Yes, unfortunately it was dusk and I had to take the pictures through the screen door before it flew away. I did look at both the woodpeckers you mentioned before I posted here, but the color patterns didn't quite match. Maybe a juvenile? Thanks again.

Your are right that it is a woodpecker. I think it's either a Hairy or a Downy woodpecker. The Hairy Woodpecker has a longer beak than the Downy. Your photos are unfortunately too dark to see it clearly.
