Looks to be a juvenile Rose Breasted Grosbeak?

they are so dissimilar it's hard to believe they are related but obviously one is feeding the other.

Default Knowledge is power...

I thought it was so strange to see, I thought they were two different kinds of birds. Thanks for the info. If I can get more shots I'll add them.

That is a neat picture! Thanks for posting it. Definately looks like what people have said in the other posts. Look at that huge honking bill on that juvenile!

Default Albums has some more...

Thank you all for the compliments, just right place with a camera, and it helps to have a camera and binoculars on every floor already to take advantage of the right moments. Feel free to check my public albums with the other shots of these two, you can see the back and forth action of the mama to the feeder and back.

Also if you like hummingbirds, they are very active here.

Well... obviously one is male and the other is female.






As we all know, male is the prettier looking one.
