Perhaps a yearling? The habitat birth of the road is not far off what you’d expect.

This one puzzles me a bit, as I saw several Scissor-tails last weekend in NW Arkansas, and none were in similar habitat. This one is on a phone wire above short trees, with a starkly-bare plowed field across the road. Perhaps there is a nest, and that nest was built while the field was in a crop? I’ve seen them usually near a plowed meadow environment.
