Re: which cherry (or plum)? 5 petals, mid-pink colour, early season

This tree is 100% in bloom, couldn't see any leaves and not sure if it is a cherry or plum. Cross-checked cultivars and neighborhood forums for this location, doesn't appear to be listed before - help appreciated with my first tree identification!

Tabular to spreading tree.
5 petals mid pink colour - blossoms are smaller than a penny.

It's a nice 'Whitcomb' cherry.
