Scissor-Tailed-FlyCatcher

Tyrannus forficatus

I found this Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher at Piedras Blancas beach while photographing new baby Northern Elephant Seals. As a rarity in California, word got out quickly and folks came from far and wide to see this bird. I donated one of these images to Cal Poly as a contribution to the scientific record.
