  1. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Monday - Alternate Location LINK
    DATE: Jan 8, 2018 @ 5:55pm, 8 month(s) ago
    Hi all.
    I found the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher at 09:35 on Monday, a couple of blocks from the location where it has been reported recently. It was in a tall tree on the southeast corner of Oregon Ave. and W. 20th St. After a while it moved slowly from tree to tree northwards along Oregon until I lost it mid-block. 
    I was surprised to find at least two Phainopeplas in the area. I had multiple sightings, of both male and female type. 
    My checklist, with horrible record photos, is at  
    One of the photos shows the underside in flight with the tail pattern and the reddish armpits.
    Take care,
