Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

A week ago, a pair of rose-breasted grosbeaks showed up. The male with the sharply contrasting black and white back and the glowing red bib on his breast is a lovely addition to the feeder. The female is tan & dun striped on back with small brown flecks on her breast. They are members of the finch family, and carry the large beak of the seed-eaters.
