Hi Doris,

I think it's a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, male.

A woodpecker would have a longer, thinner, sharper beak.

I've been hoping to see one of those in Wisconsin, but haven't yet. The Grosbeak sings like a Robin.

Thanks for sharing the photo!

Nice picture. I have never seen one of those around here. I'm glad people are posting pictures again. They are all so good.

Yep, yep, yep--Rose breasted grosbeak! We have spotted one yesterday, but not at feeders-that would be awesome though! So cool you get them there...What do you put out to get them to come in?
Since dh has been off work for a few days, we have been bird watching around our place alot...chat-grosbeak-swallows-meadow lark-blue birds-tanagers...Downy and Red Bellied woodpecker frequent the suet cakes....We have a robin nesting on our back porch-near door-4 eggs...We use that door more now that it's getting warmer, for the most part try to avoid because of her and eggs but walking from the front to back and with all the traffic we have here not able to do so. I for one, since our dryer is on blink, I'm hanging clothes out till we get time to fix...then of course we have those annoying house sparrows...they are non natives and are quite aggressive...

Yep..a Rose Breasted Grosbeak. Last week, we had 5 males and 3 females pass through. They stayed about a week.

Thanks everyone. Cannot recall seeing one before. I bought a big bag of bird seed at Wal-Mart and have been getting all kinds of birds.Even those I don't like. Crows and blackbirds. They're too agressive. I have been getting a baltimore oriole at the hummingbird feeder. I have a hard time getting pictures of anything I don't have a very good camera.

Here they show up the same time as the hummingbirds. So far, I've only seen one, or at least one at a time. They love our sunflower seeds.

Haven't seen this one since I took the picture until today. He brought a friend with him but the friend was scared of the big crows that were here so flew away but I saw a little tiny wren put it's little beak on the big beak. That was so cute.

Beautiful birds,...nice pictures!
They come far north into Canada, but have never seen one.
