Migrating bird?

A large cardinal like bird came to the feeder. Not as brilliant as the cardinal, but red. Long tail. Female was nothing like him. She had some black and gray. Beaks were like cardinals, but very orange. Very odd looking birds. Can find nothing in bird book.

Not knowing where you live, I hazard a guess that it is a Pine Grosbeak.
