Cornus florida f. rubra

The bright red fruits of this hybrid Flowering Dogwood bring all the birds to the yard. Here are some of them from last Wednesday and Thursday:
Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. (This particular one was cleaning his bill in another tree after chomping the fruits.)
American Robins
Swainson’s Thrush
Gray Catbird
Three Scarlet Tanagers at the same time.
By Friday, all the fruits were gone.
