I think it's an immature scissor-tailed flycatcher rather than an immature western kingbird.
I stopped by One Eleven Ranch Park in Garland, just down the road. I saw two eastern phoebes. I love these dark little birds with their flicking tail feathers.
I listened to Radio New Zealand on the drive home,until I switched to AM radio. I found, to my surprise, that college football games were in session. Football viewing is a guilty pleasure, but I suppose it beats cigars. I am concerned about events in the Ukraine, where Russian volunteers appear to be escalating the conflict.
If I could have a super-power, I'd choose the power to heal.
