It does. I wish I'd found this info before I went to Peru though. Would have been fun to know at the time

Good to hear! I often enjoy seeing different color morphs as much as I do totally new species. It just adds to the challenge!

Not shocked, but stoked! It makes sense as the two of them were sharing the courtyard!

I bet you're shocked that this is a Vermilion Flycatcher! I was too when I found out. Apparently this type is common in Peru.
