scissor-tailed flycatcher in bethany lakes park

The temperature today was 100 degrees. My brother gallantly agreed to give me a ride to Arkansas tomorrow to see my father.We are celebrating my wonderful father's 80th birthday. I had intended to drive myself,but I felt ready to relax a bit after the work week this week with its redeye flight.

I went to Bethany Lakes Park today after work. The temperature was over 100 degrees. I saw a green heron, a snowy egret and a scissortail flycatcher.
