PIC OF THE WEEK: 10/14/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2013 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (juvenile)

(Tyrannus forficatus)

Where: Northampton County, VA • Cedar Grove Dr. & Seaside Rd.

Notes: This insect eating rarity was the highlight of the weekend for many of the birders who showed up and withstood the dreary conditions at the 21st annual Eastern Shore Birding and Wildlife Festival (www.esvafestivals.org) this past weekend. Despite the shutdown of the National Wildlife Refuges (no comment) and the less than desirable weather conditions, the festival was a tremendous success. The conditions even cooperated enough for the "Flight Of The Raptor" to have its hawk, owl and falcon demonstration (www.theflightoftheraptor.com). This event reminded me of what a resilient and tolerant group of folks that most birders are. Whether it is the everyday backyard birder or the determined life-lister, we weather the storm. Blessed are the ones who stayed the course and were treated with the presence of this unusual member of the Kingbird family that is normally found around Texas and Oklahoma.
