Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

Tyrannus forficatus


1st photo, you can see the light gray head, the black and gray of the wings, the dark orange circle on the shoulder and the orange down the side of the body. Photo 2 is a full hind view. Its very pretty perched in a honey-mesquite tree.


Perched on a cable near the top of the electric pole on my property. Then it flew to a nearby honey mesquite tree.
