Oklahoma -- Scissor-tailed Flycatcher
# 13 From a 5-state (in order), 3-day, 1600 mile road trip to CO, WY, NE, KS, and OK in June, 2015. This trip takes me from 8 to 13 states total. Slapout, Oklahoma 2015-06-08. For no good reason, just fatigue, I quit hunting a better photo of this beautiful bird. After all, what was one more night in a hotel after three days on the road? Oh, well, I'll upgrade someday, maybe. The two or three birds interacting with each other at this site were rather shy of human presence. I have no explanation for why the photo is blurry.
An Okie friend of mine thought the state bird was the bobwhite quail. Maybe it used to be the state game bird but ever since 1990 it has been the wild turkey. But I'm not one to argue about it.
