This bird showed up at our feeder with its' mate. Sorry I could not get a good camera to take this with on short notice, but I had a hard enough time getting it to give me both sides for his mug shot.

It has bright red chest feathers, black head and wings are bold black and white. Female is brown hues.

Steve,

I am certainly not a bird expert but I love to solve a mystery. :)

Could it be a Rose-breasted Grosbeak?

Here is the identification page:

And here the picture from Google Images that convinced me:

Hope that helps
