What on earth was pretty much my first comment upon seeing this brilliant colored song bird out at my brother's friend's cottage on Lake Manitoba. I thought at first it was an oriole but I realized quickly that the colouring was wrong. Orioles have a kind of golden orange colouration where this bird, to use my brother's description, "looks like a hotrod!". Its colouration is more of a flaming red. I think I may be going crazy but I'm willing to hazzard a guess that the bird in this picture may be a vermillion flycatcher. the photo is blurry and in no way does the elegant little bird any justice. Tthe flaming red colouration was exactly that! Flaming vermillion red! I have never seen such a beautiful bird in my life!
