Rose-breasted Grosbeak

I had been waiting for this species to show up at our feeders for a while now as neighbours had already mentioned seeing one at their's. A glance out my window immediately messaged, male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, when I noted this Starling size bird with its distinct black and white patterned side and large pale beak, perched on a branch among the newly opened leaves. A frontal view of this black hooded, male bird left no doubt of its identity as it turned and displayed its red/rose coloured chest, and white belly.
