Vermilion Flycatcher

I've been pet sitting for far longer than I'd like to think about but perhaps more on that later. In the meantime, my current job gives me an opportunity to watch one of our local colorful characters. Isn't he amazing? I can't take credit for the photo. I tried to get a good one but it just didn't happen. Isn't he beautiful? I suspect I've seen his wife but didn't know it because she is so much less showy.

Actually, this female is, according to the photographer, a one-year-old female. He says that the yellow will turn to pink as she gets older. That's a far cry from her husband's coloring. Now that I know what she looks like, I'll watch for her as well.
