Show Notes

Nature is full of surprises and you never know what you're going to see.  In the case of this episode, we found a pair of scissor-tailed flycatchers,  living and nesting nearby and had a lot of fun running around trying to photograph these spectacular birds!  Join Marvin and Gabrielle to learn more about this surprising bird that, in the field guides, "ain't supposed to be here".  Learn about these amazing birds, their biology, and other fun and fascinating facts about these "vagrant" flycatchers!
