Vermillion Flycatcher

Pyrocephalus rubinus

Description:

The vermilion flycatcher is a small bird, measuring 13–14 cm in length, with a mass between 11 and 14 g. It is strongly dimorphic; males are bright red, with dark brown plumage. Females have a peach-colored belly with a dark gray upperside, and are similar to Say's phoebe.

Habitat:

We spotted this bird near Morrocoy National Park. Venezuela. In a housing community on the electric wiring. -------- Vermilion flycatchers generally prefer somewhat open areas, and are found in trees or shrubs in savannah, scrub, agricultural areas, riparian woodlands, and desert as well, but usually near water. Their range includes almost all of Mexico; it extends north into the southwestern United States, and south to scattered portions of Central America, parts of northwestern and central South America. It has ranged as far north as Canada.

Notes:

I felt so lucky to see this gorgeous little one looking at me.
