Sunday Nature Photo

Pyrocephalus rubinus ~ Vermilion Flycatcher

This little flycatcher is one of the most amazing birds I've ever seen. The photo doesn't give it justice. Indeed, instead of arrows pointing to field marks (a common practice in field guides) Sibley simply writes 'unmistakable'. It is easily seen hanging out in the cottonwoods near Rio Grande Village
