This long-tailed flycatcher is a common sight throughout Texas and Oklahoma during the summer months. Several families nest and play in the live oak trees along the boulevard near my home.

  1. I like the daily nature theme!

  2. Thanks, DrJ&MrsH. I have a lot of great bird photos that a colleague took, and he gave me permission to use them on my blog. If I can get my act together, I’ll find some science to go along with them occasionally.
