Vermilion Flycatcher at Escondido

On April 6, 1902, I secured a male vermilion flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubineus mexicanus) in full spring plumage, and upon dissection found it physically in a breeding condition. When taken it was feeding with a flock of tricolored blackbirds in a marshy piece of land near the San Luis Rey River, about ten miles inland.
