5/2/17: in New Haven, at Lighthouse Point Park.  We were fortunate to find
the male and female SUMMER TANAGERS late today, foraging at the north end of
the park.  They were in the woods between the entrance road and the closed
road, gleaning insects from the emerging leaves and doing a little
flycatching, too. They were accompanied by a female Scarlet Tanager that
helped to demonstrate the difference in shapes and plumage contrast between
the females of these two species.  What a treat to see a pair of Summer
Tanagers in CT!!!
