I enjoyed a good look at a male Scarlet Tanager, which was singing from a wild 
cherry tree as I did some gardening at home on Simerly Creek Road, Hampton, on 
Monday evening, June 1.

It's not all that unexpected, except I have heard him singing persistently for 
about a week, usually when I was leaving each morning to go to work and lacking 
the time to look for him.

It's actually my first actual sighting this year of this colorful bird and was 
a great way to welcome June.
