Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Here's a bird that really lives up to its name, the Rose-breasted Grosbeak. It's got a big red patch on its chest and a great big beak for opening seeds. I first saw one of these at my feeder a few years ago, and today got this digiscope shot. You can tell this is a male because the females are much plainer.

I've added two images of this and a few more chipmunks and goldfinches to the Point and Shoot menu. Here's one of the goldfinches. This image was underexposed a bit, but by shooting in RAW mode on the G6 there was plenty to work with in Photoshop CS.
