beautiful bird sighting in Illinois

My fiancee and I have several feeders and enjoy watching all the birds. Tonight, as we bird-watched, we were blessed to see this beautiful bird that we now know is the rose breasted grosbeak. Beautiful! Realizing how rare it is to see one of these. We have black oil sunflower seeds, premium mix seed and thistle. This beauty seemed interested in the black oil sunflower seeds. Wish we could have gotten a picture!
