Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

We have been away from the Internet for the past three weeks. Our adventures began with a quick trip to Dallas to visit grandchildren. My target bird for this first leg of our journey was the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. I lacked a good photo in my collection and also missed seeing a vagrant flycatcher in Minnesota in June. These flycatchers are common in Texas and the southern Great Plains, They specialize in eating grasshoppers and beetles. Individual tail length is variable, although males generally have longer ones.
