Rose-breasted Grosbeak quest August 23, 2021

Thanks to a tip, I was able to run out to an area near my home where there was a Rose-breasted Grosbeak reported earlier in the day. A small crowd had gathered as this is a specie not seen often in these parts. Fortunately it flew in after a couple of hours and we were all able to get good views and photos of it. My camera battery died right before it turned and so I missed out on the best pics but still very happy to get it!
