This was a big surprise, believe me! I've never had Rose-breasted Grosbeak at my feeders before!

Isn't he gorgeous! He stayed around all day, eating at both platform feeders and trying a bit of suet.

I took all of these from inside the house, sneaking up on him very slowly. Still, he could hear the camera. He just didn't seem as afraid as most.

The photos I took from outside in the afternoon were just a little too blurry.

I was hoping he would stick around, but I haven't seen him since last week :(
