    Vermilion Flycatcher

    In most flycatchers, males and females are alike, but in Vermilion Flycatcher there is a strong sexual dimorphism with males being brilliant scarlet red and females such as this with just a wash a pink on their belly. Arizona birds are of the northern migratory race, "P. r. flammeus"...

    Vermilion Flycatcher

    I couldn't resist posting another picture of this species. This male posed so nicely that at first I thought it was a mounted ornament.

    A gorgeous little passerine, more associated with the southwestern U.S. and Mexico...every once in a while one pops up in Florida, usually on the gulf coast - even more rarely, one will appear on the east coast, as this one did in 2018 - my first ever sighting of one.
