Look who's arrived in the Connecticut woods after his northward journey:
It's a Scarlet Tanager! I don't know whether I've actually seen one of these guys in real life before, but boy are they something -- and bright. Pretty bird. :)
Also, I would just like to point out all the greenery growing on that tree. Soon it will be even harder to get pictures of birds, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice if it means beautiful summer-green forests!
