I saw three males and 2 females flitting in dense willows along the Gila River in the Big Burro Mountains. There were many birds along this stretch of river. Couldn't get a photo.

Description from Wikipedia

The Vermilion Flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubinus) is a small passerine bird in the Tyrannidae, or tyrant flycatcher family. Most flycatchers are rather drab, but the Vermilion Flycatcher is a striking exception. It is a favourite with birders, but is not generally kept in aviculture, as the males tend to lose their vermilion colouration when in captivity.
