Vermilion Flycatcher are members of the tyrant flycatcher family which is the largest family of birds with over 400 species. Vermilion Flycatchers are unique to the family because most are a drab brown color and these guys are bring red/pink. However this coloring only occurs in males while females are brown; this phenomenon is called sexual dimorphism.

    I saw my first one out at Whitewater Draw. It wasn’t crane season, so he was all by his lonesome out there sitting in a bush at water’s edge. I’ve seen them since at Brown Canyon Ranch, but they are such quick flicking little guys that I never can seem to get a good photo of them. If I am using a tripod, it is hard to find them, and if I handhold . . . they are blurry. So congrats on such a great photo of this elusive guy. ;->

    Beautiful photo. I saw a yellow-bellied flycatcher this year in a park near me in Bristol, Tennessee. Exquisite. Yes, Bristol is the town in the Geico commercial – with the gecko stepping back and forth from Virginia to Tennessee on State Street.

    I understand, Judie, I live in the red part of Virginia. But this little bird shows red can be beautiful, too, especially in the cluster of what looks like blue agave.
