About ten days ago I posted that Mr. Vermilion Flycatcher was a “no show”. Well he has suddenly appeared, amazingly enough---on Valentine’s Day! I as well as other birders here in the park was overjoyed to see him. It seems to be OK so far with Mrs. Vermilion; they are launching their fly catching strikes from the same acacia tree, and they have been spotted together at the garbage can. Only time will tell.
