Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

Photographed in Minneola, Florida on November 08, 2009. This bird was photographed less than a mile from the Florida Scrub-Jay.

Whatbird: Breeds from eastern Colorado and Nebraska south to Texas and western Louisiana. Spends winters south of U.S.-Mexico border; a few in southern Florida. Preferred habitats include open country along roadsides and on ranches with scattered trees and bushes; often seen on fence posts and utility wires.

These birds are economically important because they consume large quantities of grasshoppers, crickets, and other insects that can be harmful to crops.
