Rose Breasted Grosbeak

I normally don't put anything out for the birds but seeds or scraps but this time I used some suet from the grocery store and saw this beautiful bold black and white bird eating with the others. I imagine he had a rose chest and I missed it, but his song was also beautiful.


Beautiful bold markings of black and white. It was in MD and a since we have had a mild winter so far the weather has not taken to below 35 yet. Jan 18 2013. Cold snap coming soon I hear by monday.

Only saw him for two days so far out my kitchen window on the deck feeder. beautiful!
