Nuttall's Woodpecker is found only on the west coast - Oregon, California and Baja California - but a similar looking species found in Florida is Red-cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis). I don't have any photos of that species currently on my site, but you should be able to find plenty by searching the net. Red-cockaded Woodpecker is on the U.S. Endangered Species list due to destruction of its long-leaf pine habitat. See:
Nuttall's Woodpecker is the on Audubon/American Bird Conservancy WatchList, but it is not listed under the Endangered Species Act.
I live in Niceville Fl and have seen this bird in my backyard on several occasions. Is this woodpecker endangered?
