May 4th 2011 rose breasted grosbeak

First time I have seen one - on the feeder at noon - appropriate for lunch - feed is black sunflower seed placed between woods and lawn. Both male and female feeding aggressively - pushing house finches away. The male rose color against the black is stunning. Hope they stay.
