I think when I replied to David's email it only went to him.  Below is my reply.  I apologize if this is a duplicate.
 
And No I didn't get a photo, my camera is broken and through two panes of glass (dirty) my cell phone just isn't up to the job.  The feeder is a platform feeder about 15 feet away. I'll try to keep watch in case the bird comes back and try to get some sort of a picture.

David,
 
No I don't think so, larger withwhite eye stripe large bill and wing bars.  I'm certainly no expert though.

Are you sure it was not a female Purple Finch.  They look very similar except for the size.

Hi,
 
I'm sure I don't see all the email from the group, but I had a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak at my feeder about three this afternoon.  I don't remember seeing one this early.  When is the normal time for them to come through the St. Louis area? 
 
Thanks,
