Vermilion Flycatcher (Mosquero Cardenal) - Pyrocephalus rubinus

Pyrocephalus rubinus (Passeriformes - Tyrannidae) is one of the most striking of all flycatchers, both in its coloration and its courtship behavior. 

During the breeding season, the brilliant scarlet male performs a spectacular display flight. Fluffing out the feathers and raising the crest on the head, the male flies up, flapping furiously, to about 30 or more metres in the air, before hovering for a few moments and dropping back down to a perch, all the while repeating his musical song.

The Vermilion Flycatcher is a neotropical species with a range covering south-west US, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay.

Yep, another one of the redesigned dragons.
On this one I only kept the whiskers and the lips, the rest is changed. For whatever reason I had named it Silver when it was red, so I renamed it Rubinus.
I might remove the wings on this one as well and definitely add legs.

This one’s slim as well and I have a feeling that it can fly despite not having wings. Much like Asian dragons.
Probably should have sketched it in red, haha.
