Oh my god, Rose-Breasted Grosbeak on the feeder. That's one for the lifelist! I tried to get a photo, but he spooked when I swung the camera into position (and it's dark as hell anyway, so I doubt it'd come out.) Beautiful, beautiful bird. Bigger than I expected--the finchy beak on the grosbeak photos made me expect the same scale as, well, a finch! but this guy was easily the size of a bluebird or bigger.

I put out an oriole feeder and a hummingbird feeder yesterady, we'll see if they bear fruit.
