Beautiful strangers in our yard

We love to watch the birds at the feeders in our front yard. We looked outside this morning and saw these two new birds. They were so pretty I had to go online and look them up. This is where I found out that we had Rose Breasted Grosbeaks. We are in lower West Michigan, April 28,2011. We watched them till they flew away. We hope they come back again. We have wild bird feed with mixed in black sunflower seeds in our feeders.
