1. Vermilion Flycatcher, Tyrannidae, Passeriformes
2. False: only adult birds have pink/red plumage in this species
3. I have no idea! My best guess is that they perform some kind of singing-in-flight type thing
4. Altricial refers to when the young of a species are not fully developed, often lacking eyesight, feathers, and the ability to move/feed for themselves. Like many passerines, this species is altricial.
5. Typically between three to five years
