Scissor Tailed Flycatcher

We saw a lot of scissor tailed flycatchers today. This one was on Woods Road. It was a really windy day and he was struggling balancing on the barbed wire fence.

I took several shots of him balancing and looking around. After a while, he had a bit of an itch, and after scratching, some of his peachy under-wing feathers fluffed over his wing. The peach color is very visible when they fly.

Lovely pictures. What size (kbs) do you upload to Blogger?

Hi Lephare,

I usually try to get them down below 200kb, but I think I messed up on one pic this time and loaded the larger PNG.

Thought it was me! Couldn't believe it when I saw the file size. Keep up the good work.
