The article describes the color of nature during spring in New York. In early spring, one of the most prominent colors in New York's eastern woodlands is red. Before the woods really green up, blossoms of the red maple tree add a definite rouge tinge to the landscape. Like bright jewels flitting about from tree limb to tree limb, yellow-rumped, black-throated blue, orange blackburnian warblers and American redstarts add their colors to the palette of the woods.
