The Galapagos flycatcher (Myiarchus magnirostris) is exceptionally bold and curious. Here it is on the hat of Ron Sjostedt, a National Park Naturalist Guide. After perching there a few seconds, this bird went and visited the heads of most of the dozen or so people standing around watching its antics. This occured on Post Office Beach during our visit to the Post Office Barrel on Floreana Island.

" Those were the days in the cradle of our love
Those are the days I dream of sweetly
Those were the days and I thank the stars above
The flycatcher, the cherry tree, the chestnut coal fire sea"
Roy Harper The Flycatcher 1977
