What a fabulous catch! I think your images are outstanding. xo
What a gorgeous bird. I wonder if there are any of those hiding out in our arbor vitae?
Cool bird and great sighting. Are they common in your area? Great shots!
Nice shots- I haven't seen this one around here.

Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, I never heard of that one, thanks you Theresa for showing me that one.
Morning, now I know why the name, never seen one around these parts before, nice pictures from the car.....Francine.
WOW! I would love to see one of these. The pictures are GREAT.
I've never seen one and would have stopped to snap away, too. Good pictures, Tex! :-)
Fabulous photos to catch "on the fly" . . . "of the flycatcher!"Quite the talent you are driving the car and a photo shoot too!
Its tail is impressive! Glad it pose for you. Happy Mother's Day
Nice pictures. I have never seen this bird before.
Beautiful bird Tex! Great shooting.. :)I can see his little feeties! Enjoy your Sunday!
What a beauty. Love that tail.
Morning Tex I truly love these shots I have never seen one of these they sure are interesting little fellas. Great captures. B
Dearest Theresa,Wow; "Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher" Very lovely bird posing for you♡♡♡ I always think you have a magical power for birds to face you. How amazing its tail is☆☆☆Happy Mother's Day to you, too.Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Wow!lovely bird. You iof in the shooting.Beautiful pictures.I wish you a nice Sunday.I send warm greetings from distant Polish.Lucia
Beautiful pics of a beautiful bird!!Happy Mothers Day!
Is it true that they sometimes show-off by catching flies with their tails?
saw these a lot when growing up in Texas.
wat een lange staart heeft dat kleine vogeltje.
looks to me like he is sitting on one of the sharp thingy's on the barb wire... he is precious
Lovely photos and what a handsome bird!
I love these guys. I'm seeing them out here too. great pics. I'm in the market for a new camera. What point and shoot do you use?
What a pretty bird. That tail looks way too big for him. When we were in the Smokies recently, a bird flew by that Doug said was a flycatcher. I didn't get a good look, but I thought I saw a bit of orange on it. Not sure if it was a scissor-tail, though.
I have never seen a bird with a tail like that. Awesome!!
Wow...long that long tail!
Darn nice shots for shooting thru the car window! I call this "shots of opportunity".......
Great shots, I never would have thought they were a drive by from a point and shoot if you had not said that.
Great look at this guy!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Such a magnificent tail, almost looks unreal!
Very cool! I have never seen one of these.
A fine series of this distinctive looking bird. I've never seen on in person before either. Good drive-by catch!
What a tail and WHAT a pretty eye!
Wow, how lucky you are to see such a stunning bird in your area. Wonderful series, Theresa! I saw my first Scissor-tailed Flycatcher last week and I was in awe of its beauty. Especially in flight.
Beautiful bird. I wonder if they are out our way too. Must check. Love the tail. aptly named. MB
How nice of him. Here in California, birds are more uppity and take off as soon as they see my camera!
These are great shots - how do you manage that with any camera? Love the tail.
He sure is posing pretty for you. Hugs~
I've never seen one - very cool
You captured some great shots, it's always a good idea to have your camera with you at all times.
Looks so out of proportion... and gotta eat one heck of a lotta flies. Ha!
Wow, that is some tail. Have a great day.
Wow, he's pretty! Love that long, beautiful tail!
Look at that stand out tail he was blessed with.....Happy Mothers Day! Heidi
Great shot! Haven't seen a Scissor-Tail in years!
Wow - I've never seen one. You got great shots on the fly. ;-)
What fantastic tail feathers! Great drive-by sighting and photo.
Everything in nature has a purpose so I suppose that long tail has a function, maybe to attract a female. Happy Mother's day
Wonderful! I've never seen that bird outside of a field guide.
What a cutie! Such a long tail!Happy Mother's Day to you! Make sure your fur babies treat you to some ice cream and blackberries. :)hugs,Marie
Very impressive drive- by shots! That is an amazing tail!
Lovely photos, I love the long tail
Beautiful bird! The tail is very long.
For a simple "point and shoot" those are great shots! I see you have a Restored Church of God banner on your sidebar. I'm a reader of The Real Truth too!
but come as you are very close .. very niceregards Frank
T, Wow, what a beauty!
That's a snazzy dresser!
Hi Teresa... Such a exotic looking bird with that tail, living in Texas ; ) !! Good shot's from the car!! : )Grace
Nice series of photos. Valuable in that they are taken out of the car. Whole is really good.
I love the tail! I don't think we have those around here, so extra special to see a photo of him.
My first, thanks!
Er, my first Flycatcher, that is :-) Aloha
beautiful. The sunlight is perfect for these images too.Love the scissortails I do!!
Wow what a tail. It must be hard for them to fly when the wind is gusting.Great shots T.
That's a cool looking bird! Love the tail and fuzzy head:@)
Excellent photos! Happy Mother's Day!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com

The long scissor tail makes for a very elegant bird.
What a cute little dude! Great shots considering.
Very nicely captured.
Beautiful specie .. Very well portrayed .. Congrats..
What a gorgeous bird!!!!Fantastic shots!Dimi..
A very regal looking bird! I've only seen them in photos. That tail is awesome!
what a fantastic, little bird! great shots too!
We have flycatchers here, but their tail feathers aren't nearly as big and impressive--Another reminder that everything is bigger in Texas! :-)!!
What a beauty. It was very nice of her to give you a pose or two.
Quite impressive tail feathers! Looks like those scissors are getting a bit dull though. Loved the Llama Drama. Appears he's on a grand adventure. Happy Mother's Day to you too!
What a pretty bird and I LOVE that tail! :)
I can certainly tell where this fine feather friend gets its name. What a tail! Impressive. genie
He's so beautiful & loveable & I LOVE the scissors tale!!
MUY BELLA AVE. GRAN TRABAJO.UN ABRAZO

Que cauda longa e bonita. Lindo pássaro.
The bird was good t stay so long for you to photograph.
A rockette of the bird world. What a beauty!Happy Mother's Day!
He's a pretty birdie. I always thought those long tails must be a pain, tho! :)You got some great shots through the window!
Hi Theresa, I had totally forgotten how much I like these birds. I used to see them when I lived in TX back a few years. I also saw one in Southern CA (that was highly unusual) once. Your shots are terrific! Hope you had a super nice Mother's Day. Have a fine coming week, too!
Wow, look at that tail! Great pictures.
Wonderful photos, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher are such graceful looking birds!
Dearest Theresa,Those photos are gorgeous! What a chance.Hope you had a happy Mother's Day with your furry babies; big and small(er).Hugs,Mariette
What a stunning bird! And great shots! :)
I used to see those occasionally, but it's been years! Nice catch!
What a very cool bird!
What a pretty tail!xo Catherine
I love his long tail and fluffy face! Great shots! xx

Gorgeous bird.Nice weekCrissi
Now that would be a "lifer" for me. Easy to identify with that unique tail though...:)
Excelentes fotografias de belo Pássaro....Cumprimentos
You captured some beautiful images despite the conditions!
Neat bird, I've never seen one like that.
Love this bird; ;we saw it for the first time when we wintered in Texas. I couldn't believe that tail!
Greats series! I used to see these in our Texas neighborhood all the time and could never get close enough for a decent shot. I have not seen one since I moved to Baton Rouge. :(
Love these birds!
What a beautiful bird and what a funny long tail. You have many beautiful colored birds than we do and why I am so glad this shows us :-)
Grandmother! What a long tail you have! This little sweetie was a very patient drive by subject for you, TWG.
Cute bird, love that tail! It's head reminds me of the Northern Mockingbird.
If she's pretty :))A kiss.
I would love to see one of these. And they are awesome shots, too!
My husband and son saw one of these but weren't sure what it was. We finally identified it in a bird book yesterday. I could have just read your post!! lol
We have those here and I love watching them!
So beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen this bird.
Fabulous bird!! and great capture!
I ADORE scissor-tails! They were a special treat to this SE gal when we lived near Giddings. I had an entire field in which to watch them cavort and feed in the spring, and I loved it.
What a curious fellow! A beautiful bird!!
Wow! I have never seen one of these before. Great photos!
Nice find! Makes one wonder how they ever keep from catching that tail in or on things!
what a beautiful catch!nice shots!!:))
WOW!! That's a seriously long tail! Nice find.
Nicely done Theresa! A lovely bird and one I also haven't seen before. Looks like he could have snagged some of his tail feathers, which would not surprise me.
Such a great bird!!! They are so beautiful and capture the imagination every time.
