Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder

We were delighted to see a Rose-breasted Grosbeak at our bird feeder yesterday and today.  They're such amazing birds.

I'd only see one once before, here at our bird feeder in the mountains; my gardening companion hadn't seen one before.

For now, we still have our feeders up, both seeds and sugar water for hummingbirds.  There are bears in our wider North Asheville, Town Mountain, and Sunset Mountain neighborhoods, but don't seem to be in our particularly urban bit so far, on a regular basis.
