New bird, never seen one before...

Rose breasted grosbeak. Click on the link to the audubon society to see a good pic. He was hanging out at our feeder today. I'd never seen one before.

That's what those are called! I see one occasionally at my feeder.

How exciting to see one in your yard! I saw one once last summer along a trail and got a so-so pic but that's the only one I've seen.

I was excited to hear about that!
I think you will find this post Rose-Breasted Grosbeak interesting after seeing one for yourself!

Let me know.

This is great! Congrats on spotting it. Funny thing--I live in southern NY (where your link says that it's the first to arrive) and I haven't noticed one here yet!
