Subject: [cobirds] Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Near Mosca
Did some birding this morning and worked San Luis Lake pretty hard with the
scope. Best birds there were Marbled Godwits, Willet, and Snowy Egrets.

But the best was on the drive home where I saw and photographed a
Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (juvenile) on a fence. There may actually have
been a second bird, as one flew off way out into a field. Then I saw one
closer and it seemed like 2 birds. (Fumbling with camera can be a
distraction sometime!) But for sure one! Just north of Mosca, take Lane 6
as if you are headed toward the Sand Dunes. The bird was seen about 1 mile
east of the junction of Hwy 17 and Lane 6N. This is in Alamosa County.

Only a handful of records for this species in the San Luis Valley! Have
fun! These are the weeks we live for!!!
