For the record, with these several Vermilion Flycatchers reported this spring along or east of the front range, another (the fourth?) was seen in the foothills on May 2 by some friends who live on a small ranch on the South Platte River, roughly 11-12 miles SW of Roxborough St Pk "as the crow flies"... By their description of their "mystery bird's" appearance and behavior I suspected another Vermilion, and showed them the picture in Sibley, which they agreed had to be the bird. They have smartphone pics of it, but not very good quality. I encouraged them to submit the sighting on ebird last week, but apparently they haven't done so.

The Vermilion Flycatcher is at the northwest end of the pond on the Arsenal portion of the First Creek trail (NW of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR—First Creek hotspot), immediately south of E 64th Ave.
