A Morning Visitor

This little guy showed up on one of our birch trees this morning. I snapped some pictures of him through the living room window: 

 

 

I would have thought he is a Ladder-backed Woodpecker or a Nutall's Woodpecker but he seems to have more red on his head/breast area than the pictures of those two species I've seen. He does match the description of a Red-breasted Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus ruber) however.
