Red-breasted Sapsucker

Red-breasted sapsucker

I saw these several times from a distance without getting a good look. (on Vancouver Island) They appeared to be some sort of woodpecker, but when I searched for woodpeckers in my bird app, there were none in my area with the entire head red, just ones with a bit of red. Eventually, I found Red-breasted sapsuckers, and the description said "Medium-sized woodpecker".  I'm not sure why it didn't come up when I searched for woodpeckers! Attractive birds, in any case.
