The Vermillion Flycatcher is a real eye catcher. I was able to get a fair photo of one in the Galapagos (see those pages). On a morning bird watching walk along the San Pedro River a few miles north of the Mexican border we spotted one in the tree (8091, 8097). Not a bad photo from 80 yards distance.
Surprisingly, on the last day of the trip we were sitting around the pool at the Dessert Trails B&B east of Tucson, and a Vermillion Flycatcher plopped down on the edge of the pool.
The females were seen multiple places including at the Battiste’s Breakfast and Birds. It has none of the pizzazz of the male.
Photo 0522 of a Vermillion Flycatcher just flying away clearly shows the 12 feathers of the tail.
