The Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, (Tyrannus forficatus), is one of the first birds to arrive in the spring in our area. Their arrival took place here only about a week ago.
They are found only in the southern Great Plains and marginally into northeastern Mexico. A gorgeous bird, soft pearl gray above, a pinkish belly and bright rose-pink underwing coverts.
To celebrate the occasion I decided to share a few of my favorite images of them.
I hope you enjoy this images of a very beautiful bird. Click on any of them for an enlargement.
