Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Very early yesterday morning, this handsome male showed up in my back yard.  It's my first Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus) of the year.

We used to have several pairs of these grosbeaks come to our neighbourhood each Spring, but for whatever reasons, I haven't seen any in at least two years so this one was an even more welcomed visitor.
