    Comments: IMG_6299 cobhPhotosIMG_6300 cobh - My wife pointed out this hawk and I took two photos before it disappeared into the cottonwoods. It was at about mile 4.5 on Planet Ranch Road/streambed where the river continues upstream to Esquerra (beyond the point in the river/stream where the road heads away from the water leading to the Kohen Ranch on the BWRNWR).

    Comments: At 8:55am about 1/4 mile past the 5.0 mile marker on Planet Ranch Road I saw a Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher - long tail - fly from a willow toward, then past a small cottonwood. I watched in amazement because I have never seen one before. However, the long tail surprised me as I've seen it in field guides and knew what it was immediately. I did not get a shot off with my camera as I didn't want to miss it in flight. I saw it fly about 40 yards before it flew behind and beyond the small cottonwood between the road/stream bed and the cliffs. I sketched it in my field book immediately and noted the time of observation. The body was light-colored and the tail was dark and very noticeable. Upon return to get field guide, the Sibley's Guide to Birds drawing is a great representation of what I observed. The location is about 2.75 miles beyond the gate by following the river/stream bed.
