Summer Tanager

I saw this bird sitting in one of our bushes yesterday.  It flew in, took a quick look around and flew away.  It is a new one to me, but I believe it is a female Summer Tanager.
When April steps aside for May,
Like diamonds all the raindrops glisten,
Fresh violets open every day,
To some new bird each hour we listen.
-Lucy Larcom
