First time sighting.

I looked out at my bird feeder today to see, for the first time ever, a Rose-breasted Grosbeak! He flew away, and I noticed the feeder was low; it was filled with average wild bird seed.

I ran out to re-fill it, and the man doing home repairs who was right near the feeder on a ladder commented on the bird that "had red in it" being right there.
Well, after a short while, he returned, and I was able to get some photos from my window.
I had to leave for work, but my father , who was babysitting our daughter, said that it stuck around even until later in the afternoon when my mother stopped by.
I saw that they usually are here in summer around here, so I guess this guy is early; hope to see him again!
