I was driving down a quiet road in upstate New York one morning in May, when I noticed a breathtaking flash of red sweep across the dark hemlock trees. It was a Scarlet Tanager, who stopped for a moment in the tallest part of the budding trees, and began to proclaim its raspy song of spring (dawn song recording below provided by Lang Elliott).
