Black bird with gold spots

I have not been able to get a picture of these birds yet. They come and go so quickly. We put our Christmas tree outside with some feed on our deck for the birds to enjoy. Many birds including male and female Cardinals are here everyday. This bird is about the size of a Cardinal, black with what looks like to be gold spots on its wings and back. Any idea? Thanks
