Far,far from home.

This is an first year vermillion flycatcher that should be deep in Texas.
It was located in Wallaceburg, Ontario.
It has been there for 3 days now.

We saw a mature male in Texas back in 2012.

Just got a Canon 7D Mark II and I'm slowly figuring out the focusing system, so this isn't as crisp as I thought it would be.

Pyrocephalus rubinus

The breeding male Vermilion Flycatcher spends about 90 percent of the day perched.

The male Vermilion Flycatcher often seeks to initiate copulation by delivering a butterfly or other showy insect to the female.
