Vermilion Flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubinus)

Here is another gem of the Gilbert Water Ranch Preserve, although the Vermillion Flycatcher is elusive at this location this male have been hanging around there for a while, wintering there instead to go south


The Vermilion Flycatcher is a favorite among birders, but not generally kept by aviculturalists, as males tend to lose their bright colors when taken from the wild and kept in cages. Most flycatchers are rather drab in color, but the Vermilion Flycatcher is an exception and is very striking. They are 6 inches long.

Good quality photo in great sharpness and details and splendid natural colours. Excellent composition, POV, DOF and BG.
Very nice catchlight in the eye.

Hi Everton,

I'm so jealous! I saw a Vermillon Flycatcher in a nearby park years ago before I had a decent camera. I took a shot but I had no zoom and the bird was on a treetop. I have gone back to that park many times in hopes of having a second chance. No luck. This little bird is the reddest of red and you have captured him beautifully. I love the fine details - the eye mask is wonderful. Lovely pose on the curved branch and a beautiful blue sky. Looks like Arizona :-) More rain coming, by the way.


Hi Everton,

It is also nice to see you again! welcome back mate!
This bird is very cute! The colours and its pose impressive.
A novelty for mee too.
TFS and have a nice day buddy!


Hello Everton
WOW ! Beautiful Bird, and greatly presented from a fine POV, his bright red plumage is superb and stand out very well against the blue sky, the details are also wonderful and very sharp
great work ! have a good night
