This bird is nesting in a purple martin house. Next to the entrance of the garden.

Medium to large bird reddish-brown tail a little long. Brown outer color yellowish belly.
Feathers appear to be tufted at the top of the head and beak appears to be a little on the longside. Have no pictures of a female sapsucker. Seems like the bird could be a woodpecker species.
Makes a single sound like "peep".
