Adult Male Rose Breasted Grosbeak spotted today!

I was sitting at my dining room table for lunch today when I spotted a beautiful bird in a small bird bath we have. I had to go look it up to see what kind it was because I had never seen one before! It was an adult male Rose Breasted Grosbeak! He was beautiful with his bright cherry red chest against the bright white if his tummy. The bird bath is located under a large dogwood tree where I have a couple of bird houses hung along with a couple of feeders. I just have reg wild bird seed out year round. Will hang some suet in the fall and winter but don't have any up yet. He paid no attention to the feeders that I saw at all, he was just taking a leisurely flutter bath in the bird bath. I got a couple of pics on my phone but not very good through the blinds and the window, lol. Would you believe I have a brand new DLSR camera that should be here tomorrow! Maybe he will come back. He certainly brightened my day.

I love the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks! I see them here in Ohio mainly in the Spring at my feeder (blackoil sunflower seeds). They stay around all summer but become more elusive. Maybe you can get a good photo with your new camera! :)
