Rose-breasted/Black-headed Grosbeak

1st winter male; this bird was seen briefly, but we were later shown a photograph of this bird (by a non-birder photographer who did not offer to share the picture). Studying the photo confirmed our determination that the colors and markings of the plumage of this bird exactly matched the 1st winter male Black-headed Grosbeak shown on p.466 of Sibley (First Ed). We looked at the photograph carefully and confirmed our own initial determination that there were no streaks at all on the breast or belly. At the time we saw the bird, we immediately considered that it was a young male Black-headed Grosbeak. We have seen warnings that first winter Black-headed and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks can be very similar. The only cause for doubt was that it was in the company of a first winter male Rose-breasted Grosbeak that had steaks and faint rose on the breast. Likely only DNA analysis would confirm the ID to the satisfaction of all reveiwers.
