These are the Eastern tent caterpillar. They will strip a tree or other plant of vegetation and kill it. They morph into a very non-descript moth.
Now is the time when they are all busy eating.
Here is a link that explains the difference between bag worms, tent caterpillars and web worms.

p.s. I identified my image as bagworms, which they are not.
