Opening Photos

Scissor-tailed Flycatchers are a delight to see.  Adults are easily identified by their long scissor tail.
Our videos are all taken of a family we found at Foss State Park, OK
     Video 1A  Adults go and come back with food for the fledglings.
     Video 1B  is a slow motion version of Video 1A.
     Video 2 shows an adult with two fledglings in the lower branches of a tree.  A third fledgling was watching off camera.
     Video 3 shows the second adult resting briefly in the same tree, a great vantage point for finding grasshoppers.

Scissor-tails like open areas with scattered trees, but also hunt from wires, as shown in the opening photos taken at Black Kettle National Grasslands.
