Not the new bird I was looking for. This phoebe was trying to confuse me.

This mockingbird is not the new bird either although it looks like him from far away.

“OH wait, come back. I think you’re the new bird”.

Yea! He did come back with a snack. My first scissor-tailed flycatcher.

And I found him on my first try.

Right on utility wire at the curve in the road at Fort Desoto park. Right where people had been reporting him for a while now. He’s really pretty.

While I was waiting for him to come back, I entertained myself by taking pictures of butterflies on the side of the road.
