Vermillion Flycatcher

While birding with my 2 sisters in Weslaco we came across this young Vermillion Flycatcher. I believe he is young because of the white patches. Normally they are all red and black. Very nice addition to my life list. Thank you Alice for noticing him while other sis, Sara and I were looking in the oposite direction!

Shown here are my sisters, Sara Lacy on the left and Alice Myers on the right. Great gals to bird with.

Date: February 2010
Location: Estero Llano Grande in Weslaco, Texas
Behavior: Very very windy day and we noticed him hanging for dear life on a small tree near the resaca. I have also spotted him at Choke Canyon State Park and in Harlingen, Texas at McKelvey Park.
