Swiss Manor: Rose-breasted grosbeak
I looked out at my feeder this evening, 15 June, and was surprised to see this female Rose-breasted Grosbeak (light pink bill, white and streaked breast).

   

A nice yardbird!

The female Rose-breasted Grosbeak showed up again at my feeder this morning, 23 June. I hadn't seen it since the 15th, and assumed it was gone, so this was a bit of a surprise. The pink bill is immediately distinctive relative to the numerous Black-headed Grosbeaks at my feeder - I hadn't appreciated how useful bill color is for separating the females of these two species.

The very skittish Rose-breasted Grosbeak finally sat still for a few pictures this evening, 23 June:
