UPDATE: Better Scissor-tailed Flycatcher photos

FINALLY got James on the phone and he busted ass from Durham to go see the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. Great success once again! We got the male doing some flycatching over the powerlines, so we got front and back views.

Also, got this shot of both birds at the nest site. When we first got to Anilorac Farms, we got sweet up-close looks at both birds doing a little aerial combat over one of the fields. No pics of that unfortunately.

Finally, James took this sweet HD video of the male while he was on the powerlines. Too bad so many cars have to come through!

Sweet life bird for the both of us! Totally unforgettable experience.
