FOS Scissor-tailed Flycatchers

Today, I had to take a run out to the Wichita Falls Vineyards and Winery in Iowa Park to make some purchases for a door prize at tomorrow's Business After Hours. At any rate, while driving down Petersen Road South, I saw three scissor-tailed flycatchers, my first of the season in Wichita County (I saw one in Parker County last week).

I also nearly squashed a roadrunner, which decided to run across the road just in front of me. Since he was fast and my brake reflects were good, he made it.

I saw several loggerhead shrike on the wires in the Iowa Park area. Although they are not a rare bird, I don't recall ever seeing 6+ within 20 minutes.

Good birding!
