Female Blue Grosbeak

My husband and I identified a female Blue Grosbeak a couple of days ago. I had seen her several times before but could not get a good enough look at her to clearly identify her. She has continued to visit our water source and I hope I get to see her husband before they migrate south. They spend the summer here, but I have not seen the male.

They eat mostly insects, but also some seeds and fruit so my feeders offer a little that they might be interested in.
