There has been a confirmed sighting of a breeding pair of scissor-tailed flycatchers in Warren, according to outdoors writer Charles Bridwell.

“The scissor-tailed flycatcher is not rare,” Bridwell said. “It is the state bird of Oklahoma, and is common to Texas. It winters in Central America. But, it is a rare visitor to Bradley County. I’ve had only four sightings since 1981, and this is the first breeding pair I’ve found.

If you’re interested in seeing them comment here, with your contact information, and I’ll pass the information along to Charles and he will provide information about the location where they can be seen.
