On July 24, 2021, late evening I was out gathering milkweed for Monarch caterpillars I rear and release. I am always on the lookout for Kestrels hanging out on the powerline across the road. As I looked up I could hardly believe what I was seeing. I was so excited when running back to the house for my camera, I landed flat on my face. Thank goodness I did not hurt myself. I grabbed both cameras and drove the vehicle back to the overgrown horse pasture. Not knowing anything about the bird's behavior I thought it would be best photographing from inside the vehicle. I watched the bird catch one dragonfly and a few grasshoppers. What a treat to observe and photograph a male Scissor-tailed Flycatcher also known as the Texas Bird-of-Paradise!
