Vermillion flycatcher        Images © Mark A. Chappell

As should be readily apparent from these pictures, male vermillion flycatchers are spectacularly flashy birds of southwestern deserts and scrublands.   The female has much more subdued plumage, but she is still a very attractive little bird.   These were photographed at the Big Morongo Reserve in the California desert, and in southeastern Arizona.
