The park is an environmental disaster zone, 100 acres of irrigated grass and clusters of lawn shade trees. A Big Texas size picnic grounds. We were there to see the Beardless Tyrannulet, a bird that is rare enough that it doesn't even make it into a lot of the bird books. We saw that little bugger, a nondescript brown flycatcher, but I didn't get any photos.
No matter, there were a pair of Vermilion Flycatchers. Now, a bird doesn't evolve that screaming orange red color by being a bird you can walk up to. They are almost impossible to get within a football field of, so I am quite pleased with these photos; pleased enough that that's all I'm posting today.
