The scissor-tailed flycatcher is actively feeding on the red berries of the short but large (did I just describe myself) dense magnolia tree in front of 851 21st Street. Amazingly, the bird has been bullying kingbird's, shooing them away.

I arrived (walking along the bike trail) around 1230 PM and was fortunate that someone had located it a few minutes before on 21st between San Francisco and Golden in Long Beach. He had it on the wires but quickly relocated it on the top of the second
tree from Golden. For completeness, I provide a link to a photo when it was high up in the tree.
