Downy Woodpecker: Backyard Regina Birds

A Downy Woodpecker landed today on the new package of suet hanging from the lilac trees in our Regina, Saskatchewan, backyard. After a taste and many seeds, the Downy flew to a metal lantern hanging nearby.

A female, I think. (The Downy Woodpecker, that is... I have no ideas about the lantern's potential gender.) This small bird was totally black and white, without the characteristic back red neck spot that males sport.
