Signs Spring Is Coming

Vermilion Flycatcher

Vermilion Flycatcher

In Southeast Arizona winter does not last very long.

As February comes to a close and we enter the month of March, the changes in the weather are becoming more obvious with each passing day.

The mornings still have temperatures that dip down into the thirties, but by mid morning the sun brings the temperatures up into the mid seventy's and with the warmer temperatures comes the migration of some of natures most beautiful birds.

This morning I was glad to see an old friend who calls my backyard home for awhile.

This Vermilion Flycatcher was perched nearby while filling my bird feeders.

I made haste and ran inside to grab my camera.

Expecting the bird not to be there when I got back outside, I was happy to see the Vermilion Flycatcher still perched on its branch.

Ignoring my presence the Vermilion Flycatcher would fly off, grab a quick meal and quickly return to its perch.

It is a real pleasure to watch these birds, I am sure more Vermilion Flycatchers will be arriving in these parts as the days pass.

I was really surprised to see how red this one was Benny. I plan on taking more bird shots as this guy or gal will be hanging around for awhile.
