Is it here?
Could it be a mourning dove or a hawk?

Nope, it's not a house sparrow, Elliot. It's a bit bigger.
Liam, there's no bird there that I am aware of. :) It's lower in the picture.
Edited to say: No, it's not a mourning dove or hawk.

Whetty:Rose-breasted Grosbeak?????? This is a tough quiz!!
Bigger than this.
I have been pondering what clues to give that wouldn't totally give it away; It's not normally found at feeders. It's singing ability is amazing.

KRIZDA88:It's not the bird in your Avatar picture is it?
Nope, that's a chipping sparrow and much too small.

Yay! You got it! This bird is actually what brought me to the Whatbird forum. I remembered that after I posted this. We see the thrasher every morning in this same spot. It doesn't eat off the feeders, but will eat what's on the ground below them. We discovered yesterday, they are nesting right in front of our porch. The nest is very well hid, otherwise I'd really like to see the babies when they hatch.

I have to admit - your clue helped.
We also have a resident Thrasher. It likes to pick at the bug/ants on the hill behind our house. Cool bird!
