Great Brook Farm State Park, Carlisle, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

I saw many of these bees throughout April and May at several different locations. They resemble bumblebees but I don't think that's what they are. The antennae are too long and there isn't any fuzz on the abdomen. They are also smaller than bumblebees.
