1. Male Black-headed Grosbeak
2. Female Black-headed Grosbeak
3. Male (left) and female Evening Grosbeak
There are several different species of "grosbeak" but just to make in confusing there are birds called grosbeaks in a few different families. So the Black-headed Grosbeak (like their close relative the Rose-breasted Grosbeak) are in Cardinalidae, I believe, so related to cardinals, but the Evening Grosbeak is actually a finch.

It looks like a Black-headed Grosbeak. It's a great bird. I saw my first one a few days ago. Congratulations. I love that you can see them on feeders.
All my feeders are 20 - 30 feet from my backdoor and kitchen window. Makes it really easy to take pictures of them.
