this is a flycatcher I would love to see. I only glimpsed it once from inside a bus. :(
...they are so elegant and so attractive!! Great images Ms. T
Hello strange it is that they are not afraid of that.
What a tale of a tail . . . I wonder why he needs such a long one.
Such a remarkable tail! A beautiful rare bird to grace the power line.
lovely tail. if i said that to a human i'd probably be slapped. a bird after my 'Tell Tale Heart' Edgar Allen Poe.
I always love it when they look right into the camera:@)
Oh, he is so handsome! What a tail!
Nice shots , I have never seen one before , Pretty !
That is one fantastic tail!!xo Catherine
How cute and that is one long tail for sure. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Oh he is stunning; gorgeous even! When I listened to the flycatcher's song I burst out laughing so hard tears rolled down my face... that sounds JUST like our new puppy, Geraldo, aka Squeaker. LOL, I'm still laughing!
Enjoyed both the photos and the sound track.
Beautiful shots of an amazing bird :) Love his long tail!
Wonderful pictures of the Scissor Tail, what an amazing looking bird, Francine.
Very handsome ... Great series;)
A beautiful bird, with a distinctive trill.listening to its trill.. It indeed does remind one of the little squeeky toys babies have.Great photos Tex.wishing you a happy week.val
Great looking bird - that is a special looking tail.Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Thanks for the link!
WOW the tail is almost as long as the body LOL. Cool bird!
What a long tail! I guess it helps him balance on that tightrope. Thanks for including the clip of the bird song. It does sound like a squeaky toy. What a fun song!
Neat, I've never seen one of these. Cool!
WOW, WOW WOW, you continue to amaze me with the variety of wonders that you find & share! That tail, I am speechless so I just leave you with WOW! And thank you.
What a site . . . I sure do love seeing what you bring into my view each morning!
WOW! His tale is as long as the Magpie's...
He's fascinating looking -- i wonder what purpose that long tail serves. This is another i'll have to look up, i learn so much here!@
Neat bird! Wonder what the purpose of the longer than normal tail feathers!
I wonder if those tail feathers are ever a problem for him? They sure are long! Great pictures, Tex. He's a cute little guy. :-)
Neat little bird!
They are the state bird of Oklahoma, but I've only ever seen them in Texas. ;)
He is a cutie! I love Cornell!!!
Great photos and I enjoyed listening to their song (if nothing else, just to bother my sleeping kitty gang!!! lol)
they look and sound so happy and the first sound is just like cooper used to squeak his toys... there tail is longer than their body...have not seen one in real life...they look like the circus guys balancing with a rod.
That is an amazing tail!
It does sound like a squeak toy, love the long tail.
love that long tail. too cool!! thank you for all your sweet comments ... you are the bestest!! i have been away on a camping adventure. & now just getting back to replying & talking to you guys again. hope you are well. ( ;
That's a great looking bird, love that long tail. They must look pretty cool in flight.
That's one long tail. Almost reminds me of the Magpie.
What beautiful shots! That bird is so cute, what does he use such a long tail for?
I love the long tail. I've never seen this type of flycatcher before but there are some down south of us. ThanksHugs,JB
Look at that tail! What a lovely bird.
Wow - great shots, Theresa! That's quite a rudder he has. I went and listened: they really do sound like a squeaky toy!
oh my gosh....this is one I never get to see and it's posing for you, no less...just beautiful
I have seen them around here but not lately.
Now that's a tail! It's amazing he can stay balanced. I had a fit of laughter when I heard his song. It does sound like a dog's squeaky toy.
Beautiful shots of an amazing bird.I've never seen this type of flycatcher.Greetings Irma
so pretty and graceful, singing his heart out.
What a beautiful bird Tex! I have never seen one before!Great shots and captures!!Dimi...
Oh my gosh, he is magnificent! I tried to photograph this bird while living in Texas and could not capture one. Always too high on the line and flew away the moment I approached. Miss these guys as we don't have them here.
Wow...I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. That long tail looks like it would weigh him down! He's beautiful!
I tried my darnedest to get a picture of one the other day. He would not cooperate! Love the shot where he is singing!
He knows what he is doing. Found a perfect spot to sit and sing to the world without interruption. You do an amazing job with your photos.
He's a fine subject for this series. Not only is he beautiful with that impressive tail, but he has a great sounding song.
Love the fly-catcher bird. I see so many here its unreal.your photos really capture their beauty.mine are so blurry.
lovely photos of a wonderfully handsome bird
Well, I put up a bird with long tail, and it was also standing on wire, can you believe it???????????????
I giggled at his name then I saw him, WOW what an amazing bird and a funny chirp it is quite like a dog with a squeaky toy.
Oh, I haven't seen a Scissor-Tail in years!! How fun! Great blue skies, too! Oh, thanks for letting me know about Bloggers pain for the morning, I think I have it fixed????
Wow, quite impressive!
Greg was so disappointed that we didn't see any of these on our Texas trip. Almost as disappointed as I was about the Whistlers. But I think we were there at the wrong time of the year. He is a pretty magnificent looking bird with a nice voice.
What a beautiful bird!!!¸.-♥´¨)Lindahttp://email@example.com
WoW-zers, awesome images!! And that beautiful blue sky provides the perfect backdrop!!
my goodness but you find a lot of birds...I need to get out more...:)
I like to watch this bird. We have them here too. You presented some nice photos of them.
What a stunning bird... lovely images
hij heeft daar een mooi plekje hij kan alles heel goed over zien.
I've never seen one. Great shots!
What a wonderful bird is Theresa! And what a huge long tail, this bird! Great to see :-)
I have never seen these birds and now I have to read-up on them. Thanks for making me curious and sharing your joy with all of us.Peace :)
HI Tex wow. I have never heard or seen this bird and I cannot get over how long its tail is. All great shots. I have another post for your meme with even more similar shots so I will stick with that. Thanks for your comment.
wow! that's amazing!
Lovely bird. He surprised me very long tail. Greetings.
Beautiful Flycatcher!! I saw a variety of Flycatcher this week too, a Western Wood Pewee. They are such cute birds!
I would sit on my Dad's porch and watch those lovely birds. I really enjoyed watching them. You have such nice birds.
That tail is very impressive!
That tail is longer than the body. :)
Pretty bird! Must not be around here, have never seen or heard.
Fabulous Flycatcher. Just love those streamers.
WOW what an incredible looking bird, Theresa...wonderful share!
What an EXTRAordinary tail that flycatcher has. It looks almost unreal, like someone has glued a little extra on the end of an already long tail.
We do not see these often but when I do, it takes my breathe away. They are the most magnificent birds.The photographer ain't bad either!Rain falls here, now!!!
What a cute bird! Really long tail :-)
T, Wow, great capture! I've never seen one of those before. I sure has a tail!
Cute birds. That tail is amazing.
I learn something new all the time on your blog. Love that song! And if it catches flies like it's name implies, what a bonus!
Wow - what a bird!! Great pics, Tex!
A great series of photos -that bird has an amazing tail!
Oooo...what a pretty tail!
Wonderful photos, he has such a long tail, and a unique voice-exactly like a puppy playing with a squeaky toy.
This is one bird I have never seen, but would definitely love to. xo Laura
Well, that IS a long tail
What beautiful pictures, which pretty bird!
Tex, lucky you! This bird is high on my want to see list.. They are lovely.. Great shots!
i've never heard of these and what long tails they have!!
He looks awfully proud of that tale. It's only a matter of time until a female gives him the nod.
A graceful long tail. Love his song too - thanks for the link... definitely like a puppy with a squeaky toy!! :D)
The tails on these guys are fantastic! Great shots!
That is a LONNNNNG tail. That bird has some junk in his trunk. Sorry--had to be cheesy!
This guy was very obliging by sitting and let you take lots of photos. He also sang for you too!
Oh my goodness, what an appropriate name.
I thought I was seeing things the first time I saw this bird. In Texas of course. Thanks for posting them.
What a beautiful bird, we don't have these in South Carolina! Nice series of shots :)
Our flycatchers are smaller than this--A reminder that everything really is bigger in Texas! :-)
So absolutely gorgeous! I just love them so much! You got so many great photos, Theresa! I am having trouble linking into WWWed but hope you will come by and see my Painted Redstart. Have a great week!
I love your high-wire rock star!
This is a new one for me. I agree with the description of their call!Very nice series!~Lindy
A very attractive bird.
Nice find, real nice group of pictures! These long tailed birds must be interesting to see in flight also.I can't help but wonder what the Good Lord had in mind when he designed the Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers?
Oh my gosh, they do sound like a squeaky toy. He has the cutest face.
I love them...I saw one yesterday when I was sitting at a light...no camera...so I just enjoyed watching it fly around...love your photos...
Dearest Theresa,That is quite a lengthy but beautiful tail!Hugs,Mariette
I've not seen one of them. Pretty little bird
Those tails ARE long! You caught some great shots. I've never seen one of these "in person."
He knows he is elegantly handsome--despite the squeak toy song. ;)
He is one good looking bird. Awesome snaps my friend.Hugs~
What a beautiful bird.. :-)))
They are so elegantbye-bye Crissi
I love all the flycatchers...their swooping, diving, skimming!!!...:)JP
Beautiful bird! It has a amazing tail :-) Fantastic series of photos.
Nice shots of the scissor tail. We don't see very many of those up this way.
Great tail on this pair!! Boom, Bobbi, and Gary.
The tale of the tail.
Wonderful photo series on the pretty long tailed bird!! Beautiful
Their tail always amazes me...I don't see how they maneuver with it but probably helps more than I can imagine.
What a beautiful bird. I imagine that long tail is of some special use to this bird.
That tail, oh ,very nice bird ,Nette
Well, isn't he just the cutest thing, squeaking away! Thanks for the link, it was fun to hear what he sounds like!
Just what you want. Another comment and late at that :) Love this little fellow and really enjoyed the link to the "puppy squeak" imitation. Wow. I would be very excited to hear that sound here.
Oh what a lovely bird. But don't you at least mentally have the urge to give that tail a flick with your forefinger to see if he'll just spin around that wire? ;) Wheeeeeeeee!
Aw, what a cutie!
Wow, such a beautiful bird! So elegant with the long tail! :))
Cute is right! Amazing how balanced considering that loooooong tail.
Would love it if one of these landed in front of my camera! They do sound like a squeaky toy.
What a fabulous little show off this guy is! I followed the link to hear the song and the puppy description is perfect! Thanks for sharing - now I have another bird to see on my Global 'hit list' :)
Is it true that they use their tails to cut horse flies into much more manageable bites?
Wow, that's quite a tail!
Darling bird and that tail is impressive.
I've never heard of this bird but it sure has an elegance about him.
Sounds just like one of Penny's squeaky toys.
Very cool that you were able to get such great pictures of the pretty bird.
Charming little guy singing his morning song.
A magical and beautiful bird for sure!
What a tail! I wonder if it uses it's tail to help balance himself?
