Adult male in breeding plumage. When in non-breeding the male has very little red on his head and the body has an olive tinge. I was able to capture him in pics and a video - waiting and calling for his mate. Video: https://youtu.be/7GMRADF4VSQ
Spotted in the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains. This area had been hit by forest fires a few years ago and had created some semi-open areas. Mostly coniferous forest above 2000 ft.
Range in much of western North America during the breeding season and in central Mexico to Panama for wintering.
