unknown woodpecker

I have a woodpecker feeder with many woodpeckers every day. One that I can't ID had a red cap on head a black band across it's eye and a red patch on it's throat. Help with ID. I will keep watch to get a picture if possible.

The bird I saw didn't have any white markings on face only a black stripe between the red on head and throat

Sounds like a yellow-bellied sapsucker.
