I am not a birder. At our place in silver Star Mountain a number of birds(about 15) have been in the trees outside the window. They are red bodies, red heads and black/brown wings. Never seen before. Mid winter, lots of snow. they are quite big almost as big as the Stellars Jay that are also there. I believe they look like the Vermillion flycatcher. Apparently if they are they are not supposed to be this far North. they have appeared for the past 2 weeks almost daily. took me forever to try to identify them as did not think of word 'vermillion"/ hope it is spelled right. Is it possible that these are the birds, sorry no pictures.
