Subject: Re: Scissor-tailed number
A few years back, we saw what had to have been in the several hundred in Elkins east of Fayetteville. Everywhere I looked to the west from the intersection of highway 15 & 74 were long tailed birds on the wires and the trees around the two banks and extending South from the Shell Gas station. Gave up trying to count and went back to farming. Didn't have my bins with me.

Ruth and I were at Sunnymede on Saturday afternoon and counted 16 Scissor-tailed flycatchers. Amazing.
