This bird was found at the Guelph University Arboretum where they nested in a nest box, that was easily seen. They still nest at the Arb. but I don't know where.

Excellent image, Karl. Always found them to be somewhat elusive to photograph- perhaps our most colourful flycatcher.

Usually when I see these birds and they see me, they put their back to me (they seem to know how bright their breasts are). Been trying a long time to get one like this for a long time.

Thanks, Todd. This species has been the most photographed Songbirds in my experience. 
When they nested in a box, I attached a perch to the box and had taken pictures of them bringing in food items to the nest. 
They did not mind my presence as I kept the distance.
