Scissor-tailed Flycatcher – A Wow moment.


I am feeling better now that I can get out into my nature environs again.  Traveling through the San Angelo State Park, I came upon this beautiful Scissor-tailed Flycatcher.  I pulled the car off the road.  The bird continued to pose for me, and I think I came away with one of my best photos of one in a long time.  I hope you enjoy.

We also ventured to the north section of the park.  This Great Blue Heron was standing in a pond in the North Concho River.

Before we left that area, I had to take a shot of this Black-tailed Prairie Dog.

The following morning we made a short visit to Spring Creek Park and spotted some Eastern Phoebes cavorting in some brush.  One of them stopped long enough to take a breather on a wire fence.

Migration isn’t in full swing here yet because of our lingering 100° days.  But cooler weather so projected for the next few days so birding should start improving.

I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you of my new DVD that I recently produced with the help of DST Productions in Knoxville, Tennessee.  One hundred of my finest work, including birds, wildlife, and landscapes.  Truly a beautiful collection set to some beautiful music.  In 1080P HiDef.  As many of you know, I am a very trusting individual.  You can have this DVD if you will mail me a check for 25.00 that includes any taxes and shipping expenses.  My address is Bob Zeller, 4401 White Ash Ln., San Angelo, TX.  I will ship it immediately by Priority Mail.  By the way, it would make great Christmas gifts.  I have references available if you like.

Of course, my book, “Birds, Beasts and Buttes” is still selling very well.  Total cost to you is 65.00.

Happy Birding to all. 🙂

  1. Aha…a lingering question answered – why do mesquite trees have thorns? So beautiful birds can pose for Bob! I do enjoy those stately scissor tails. Looking forward to more photos. AND I have your beautiful calendar in hand and the DVD. You done good!! hugs

    • Hey, you answered the question, why do mesquites have thorns. 🙂 I thought it was so if the tree fell the birds wouldn’t hear it. 🙂 Glad you are enjoying the calendar and DVD. 🙂 Bob.

  2. Beautiful photos as always. I’m glad you’re feeling better and sharing your wildlife experiences again!
    We have a few migrants in Bastrop as well. Saw a Baltimore Oriole last weekend.
