Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

We added few new birds to our year list during or quick trip to Texas this August. We did capture a few images of young Scissor-tailed Flycatchers at LLELA (Denton Co.) on 10 August. The adults have such long, graceful tails compared to the immatures. I often wonder why these flycatchers, whih specialize in eating grasshoppers and beetles, are common only in thee southern Great Plains. Perhaps they require more trees and shrubs than are afforded by the northern prairies.
