scp and passwords

I have been using ssh-agent and ssh-add with
good results when I use ssh.  However, when 
I use scp, I still get asked for the user
password on a remote machine.

In other words, I can use "ssh othermachine"
without being asked for a password, but when
I use "scp thisfile othermachine:" I do get
asked for a password.

Is this normal?
