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.
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
