Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. Have to back off to get all of this bird in the frame.

Jim, Hung, and shaggydo......I appreciate the comments, guys. The flycatcher is one of my favorite warm weather birds.

Hi, Don. Thanks for the comments. The Purple Martinsare pretty quick like most swallows. Was trying to get some "not soaring".

The adult Scissortails have got around 12" in tail and are really fun to watch.
