Such beautiful pictures. That tail is something else. I don't think I've ever seen such a long tail on a smaller size bird (although the size of the bird can be misleading in a photo).

Thank you very much for sharing. The picture of the bird in flight is stunning.

"rare bird alert"
Reminds me of a sweet/fun movie (and, always, better book by Denverite Mark Obmascik) "The Big Year".
The BGR's turned me on to it.
Highly recommend all....book, movie & BGR's!
