I think I found it or her a female rose breasted grosbeak

Algonquin, IL(Zone 5a)'re absolutely correct!
Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are one of my favorite birds. They're beautiful, non-aggressive and very willing to share the feeder with many other birds.

Have you seen her mate? If you haven't, I hope you get a chance to. They're absolutely gorgeous!
