Vermilion Flycatcher — Adult Males

Over the past week or two I’ve featured some images of Vermilion Flycatchers — an immature male and an adult female. Today, I’m posting images of a couple of adult males that I photographed recently.

This little flycatcher’s crimson plumage identifies him as an adult. As I’ve discussed, males of this species gradually molt into this plumage over their first year or so.

I always enjoy photographing these birds. The fact that they are relatively easy to find and photograph does not detract from the pleasure I experience whenever I see them.

Images made with a Canon R5, Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 IS L zoom lens, M setting (auto ISO). First image, ISO 800, f7.1 @ 1/1000. Second image, ISO 160, f7.1 @ 1/1000, -1 stop exposure compensation.
