Vermilion colour with dark grey wings and eye stripe. Short pointed beak.
Hotel ground in Guadalajara, Mexico. Sitting on an African tulip flower tree...the flowers gave it stiff competition, colour-wise! The second shot shows both the bird and the flowers.
First time I ever saw this bird. Reportedly, its colour fades in captivity.
