I was out in the yard and this bird landed about 70 feet away. At first I thought it was an Eastern Bluebird, but after viewing the very poor quality photo, I think it is a Blue Grosbeak. Shooting directly into the sun makes life difficult, especially when you only have 2 seconds before it is gone. Sorry about the quality. I will be watching for it to return.

Yes, I think you're right, that looks like it is a Blue Grosbeak.
