First, I saw a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder in the front yard, then more males showed up at the back of the house.
Finally, a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak made a quick — though all-but-hidden — touchdown on the bird feeder, too.
They may be gone now... A few days lurking, and the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are on their way further north. (Not terribly far north; the All About Birds map looks like boreal forest, to me. I wish we had more trees to keep them longer here!)

|Yes, that's a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks... The female is hiding.|
