Subject: re: second-hand report Spartanburg County, SC Scissor-tailed flycatcher
Hello,

The May 2 Spartanburg County, SC spring bird count had a Scissor-tailed
flycatcher photograph taken at a place labeled as "Pearson Farm airport",
on Thompson Creek Rd., near Boiling Springs South Carolina.

I do not know if birders need to stay at the road or whether they can get
permission to enter the "Pearson Farm airport" property.

Other birders have seen the bird and posted to ebird since the original
sighting.

There has also been a report of Scissor-tailed flycatcher at the Bryant
Park ball field location on Bryant Rd where the species was present last
summer.

Bryant Park ball field and the "Pearson Farm airport" are close enough that
these sightings might be one pair of flycatchers.
