We have two young male rose-breasted grosbeaks visiting our feeders this year.
In the past a lone male stopped by at the feeder once per season. He ate for about 10 minutes then flew off for parts unknown.
This summer the adult male was by once or twice and then a female came by a few times in July.
Last week this fellow and his brother became regular customers.
It's quite a treat. We're hoping they like our hospitality so much they'll come back every year.
Here's little beaky in profile.
