Vermilion Flycatcher

Pyrocephalus rubinus

The Vermilion Flycatcher is a strikingly handsome bird. It is found in the New World in open brushy areas near water. In the Southwestern USA, they are resident near the border with Mexico, but sometimes push north a few hundred miles to breed in summer. Southern Nevada is another location where they are found year-round. Science recognizes a dozen subspecies of Vermillion Flycatchers, some of whose ranges extend south south as far as Argentina.
