The pugnacious Pyrrhuloxia and a fancy Flycatcher

A couple of dandy Southeastern Arizona birds that never make it to Montana.   Love the birdbook description of the Pyrrhuloxia’s “pugnacious beak”, and the Vermilion Flycatcher is just all around dashing.   The flycatcher was at the Slaughter Ranch near Douglas, and the Pyrrhuloxia was at the San Pedro conservation area.
