Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in Flight – White Rock Lake

Scissor-tailed Flycatchers have returned to White Rock Lake, Dallas Texas and this is the best of the year to get the Oklahoma States birds in flight on the hill of Winfrey Point. Just the first visit of the season, i already bagged handful of flycatchers in perch, last but not least, my best one yet in flight with full back view!

The new 7D Mark II is way better than 1D Mark IV when it comes to tracking this fast flyer. Hope to get more on my next visit, and more.
