Vermillion Flycatchers Decorate Golf Course

Have you noted flashes of brilliant scarlet red flying around the golf course?  Well, they are Vermillion Flycatchers, Pyrocephalus rubinus. They are common near streams and are decidedly smaller than cardinals or tanangers. They are reasily recognized by its small bill and flycatching habit, darting about and returning to its favorite roost, normally the white out-of-bounds markers. Song is a rapid, high sputtering.
