Pledge to Fledge is coming up this weekend! And, if you haven’t yet been inspired to share your love and passion for birds with others, hopefully this beauty will do the trick!
Common Name: Vermillion Flycatcher
Latin Name: Pyrocephalus rubinus
Range: Southwestern United States, Central America and South America.
Habitat: Arid climates, such as deserts and woodlands, often near water.
Diet: Mainly insects.
Conservation Status: Least Concern. However, population numbers have declined on account of habitat destruction.
Interesting fact: Male Vermillion Flycatchers will often bring an eye-catching insect, such as a butterfly, to a female Vermillion Flycatcher in hopes of initiating a mating relationship.
