Thank you Barbara and Martha for first identifying and then sharing the
I arrived about 5:30 p.m. during a light rain shower and drove Old Depot
Road until it entered the woods to the southeast. I scanned the poles and
wires to no avail. The rain then let up so I decided to walk and scan.
First, a Gray Catbird flew across the road almost relieving me of my cap and
then a Baltimore Oriole drew my attention to a tree on the south side of the
road. My eyes then scanned west and there it was, the Scissor-tailed
Flycatcher, tail feathers fluttering in the breeze, perched on the wire cable
between utility poles 88 and 89. The bird was facing the pond !
I walked back to the car to fetch my camera but then the mother of all
storms struck and I was confined for 4 or 5 minuets to the car. Once the
storm abated, I was not able to relocate the bird.
Time of observation, 6:00 p.m.
