Scarlet Flycatcher

Pyrocephalus rubinus

The Scarlet Flycatcher, or Austral Vermilion Flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubinus), presents a striking plumage reminiscent of a flickering flame. This avian species, closely related to the Vermilion Flycatcher, boasts a vibrant ruby hue that captivates the observer.

Identification Tips

Distinguishable from its cousin, the Vermilion Flycatcher, by its slightly pointier wings, the Scarlet Flycatcher is a visual treat. Observers should also note the distinctive songs of this species, which differ from those of its relatives.

Distribution

The Scarlet Flycatcher graces the skies of southeastern Bolivia and Brazil, extending its range through Paraguay to the southern reaches of Argentina and Uruguay.

Song & Calls

The Scarlet Flycatcher's vocalizations are unique and serve as an auditory clue to its identification. Its song is a defining characteristic that sets it apart from the Vermilion Flycatcher.

Breeding

There is no overlap in range and breeding times with the Vermilion Flycatcher, suggesting that the Scarlet Flycatcher follows its own distinct breeding schedule and geographical preferences for reproduction.

Conservation status

The IUCN Red List classifies the Scarlet Flycatcher as Least Concern, indicating that, currently, there are no immediate threats to its population levels that would warrant a higher degree of conservation action.

What Our Birders Say

Clean and easy to use
Really enjoying this app, it's clean and easy to use. I love the ease of being able to add those one-off birds without starting a whole checklist. I also like the social aspect, like the parts of my Facebook I like, without the ads and junk, just birds. Can't wait to see it become more populated.

Fantastic App
This is a really lovely app, for everyone interested in birds - from newbies to old hands. There is a very friendly feel to the community and you will genuinely learn a lot as you record your sightings and photos. There are lots of badges and competitions to keep you engaged, and a host of really useful features.

Really great app
It’s easy to use and it’s fun to log the birds you notice on a walk or just in your garden. There’s a option to record the birds you see in a session which is really nice. Good excuse to stop for a while and just watch birds. I am also enjoying the information part where you can find out fact about birds from all over the world.

Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!

A great app, which is continually being improved. What really comes through is the passion of those behind the app. The sense of community is brilliant, so much help and support provided to new and/or in experienced birders.
