I finally got a few shots of some rose-breasted grosbeaks, too--had to stalk them so couldn't get closer than about 30 feet, but with close cropping you can get a pretty good view of the handsome dudes:

The guy on the right appears to be a first-spring male--notice the streaking on the flanks and the white feathers breaking up the black on the head and the rose bib.
