unknown gray bird

I saw new bird today by my feeder that I can't identify in my book. It was gray like a cat bird, had a beak like a woodpecker, was about the size of those birds, and had speckled sides just below the where the wing sit. The speckles looked like those on a starling. The belly, back and head were all gray. It flew away before I could get more details or a picture.

I just found this page when I was looking to see what was by my pond. If it's the same bird ( which the description matches completely) it's about the size of a football also. The beak was long and thin. It walks slowly & sticks hos neck out w/ each step. Maybe that would help to identify it. I took a blurry pic of it ill try to upload.

Gray and speckled color resembling woodpecker might indicate this bird might be a Northern Flicker or possibly a red bellied woodpecker.
