This afternoon, December 23rd, at about 3:30, a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher was in a bare tree just south-west of the main Dairy Mart Pond parking lot. It was repeatedly hawking insects and displaying the spectacular tail when turning sharply. I haven’t seen one here for a while, it may be a new bird or a returning bird that has been in areas not covered recently.
