Wildlife - Animals on Isabela, Isla Isabela: 19 reviews and 77 photos
With their bright red colour against the intense green vegetation the Vermilion Flycatchers are very beautiful. It is the male who has got this bright red colour. There is a black mask over the eyes, and also the back and tail are black. The birds are rather small with a lengths of 13-14 cm and a weight of 11-14 grams.
The Vermilion Flycatcher feed on flies and other insects, and it can catch them out of the air.
On Galapagos you usually find the Vermilion Flycatcher in the highland areas. I’m happy that I saw two during the hike to Volcán Sierra Negra.
