This is a Príncipe in portuguese, Vermilion Flycatcher in english, Pyrocephalus rubinus. I found this beautiful red bird just waiting to catch some bees for lunch. It is a migratory bird that is just visiting my town at this time of year (July) in south Brazil, so lucky of me to have seen this cute animal.

Something about it:

The male Vermilion Flycatcher is a stunning bird with its head and underparts a brilliant scarlet apart from a thick dark line through the eye.

The female has very different colouring being dusky brown with a streaked greyish breast and normally some pink on the belly.

They are found in open areas with some trees or bushes and can be found in parks and gardens. They range from south west USA to central Argentina but are not found in Amazonia or eastern Brazil except when on migration during the southern winter.

Meu amigo, que passarinho lindo! Poxa, onde foi que você achou esta belezinha? E o pegou bem na luz, com este belo fundo desfocado contrastando, principalmente na parte azul superior. Beleza de foto! Não vejo a hora de comprar um equipamento para fazermos uns safaris fotográficos por aí. A primavera que nos aguarde!

No me gusta el fondo azul, no parece natural, ahora bien el pajarito está de maravilla. Enhorabuena y saludos,

Hi Fabiano
Tu nous envoies une superbe prise de vue d'un magnifique oiseau avec ses belles couleurs et de très jolis détails et une très belle composition.
Bravo et merci ....JP

Hola Fabiano,

Nice picture of a nice and colorful flycatcher! I like the natural colors of the bird and the little spark in its eye! In my opinion, more room to the left of the bird (and less to the right) could be more appropriated. But sometimes it is not possible. Anyway, it is not a big deal! Good picture Fabiano and TFS,
