The top photo is a male and the bottom is a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak getting their name from their heavy conical bill. They are considered monogamous (one male to one female) and both help build the nest. Maybe that is why I love these birds so much!
Lure them to your feeder with black oiler sunflower seeds. Woo them with a bird bath as they love to splash around just like Robins! They also migrate south so be sure to keep your eye out during the spring and summer.
