incredible siting of rose grosbeak

My wife and i were on our back porch on a beautiful sunny late afternoon in South Carolina watching our bird feeders as we usually do, when my wife actually asked in the form of prayer,to see something different for a change, besides the same purple finch, wrens, sparrows,cardinals,doves and mocking birds, not to say we are not grateful for these little angels of God,but just wanted to see something to excite us. Well, in about the same instant a bird that was black, white and a very beautiful red breast,came to land on our bird feeders, we were soooo excited, we didn't know what it was at the time because we have never seen anything like this gorgeous creature in the 8 years we have lived in this area.He stayed quite a long time and ate from our feeders, we were overjoyed, my wife says her prayer was instantly answered, which i would have to agree. After our friend left, we immediately went to our computer to see if we could find what had decided to have supper with us, we found that the Rose Breasted Grosbeak was definitely the bird that had graced our back yard bird feeder and we will be forever grateful for that amazing siting. To whoever has never seen one, it is definitely a treat and one of natures beautiful moments, so say a little prayer, like my wife did, and who knows it just may happen to you. Peace and Love to all Bill & Bobbie B
