This species belongs to the Tyrannidae family, therefore they are experts in catching insects in mid flight. Here in our town, El Líbano Tolima, it is very common to observe Pyrocephalus rubinus, in gardens, parks and in rural areas. Apparently this beautiful migratory species loves to enjoy the tropical climates when the American extremes are experiencing the cold of winter.
Ésta especie pertenece a la familia Tyrannidae, por lo tanto son unos expertos en atrapar insectos en pleno vuelo. Aquí en nuestro pueblo El Líbano Tolima, es muy común observar al Pyrocephalus rubinus, en los jardines, parques y en las áreas rurales. Al parecer a ésta hermosa especie migratoria le encanta disfrutar los climas tropicales cuando los extremos americanos están con el frio de invierno.
