Lake Monticello Flycatching

I did a little birdwatching this weekend at Lake Monticello on Saturday morning. I saw several flycatchers: an Eastern Kingbird, several Barn Swallows, and a few Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers.



I went back later in the afternoon and saw this Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher. He was perched next to the road and stayed there several minutes, almost posing. I was able to get several good shots and thought I share them!

Update: I went back and looked at this photo a little closer and I now believe that this is indeed a juvenile. The tail is not as long as it should be for an adult. The underparts are not the 'salmon-pink' color that an adult would have.

Good Birding and God Bless.
