In JJSJ’s [Dr. Jim] article, Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher, Oklahoma’s Long-tailed State Bird, he introduced you to the beautiful Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher. Today, I would like to show you three more “scissor-tailed” birds.
The word “Scissor” is not mentioned in the Bible, at least that I can find. Yet, God told us in His Word:
“This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.” (Psalms 102:18 KJV)
“Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.” (Psalms 148:5 KJV) [Refers to the heavens and these beautiful birds fly in the sky, which was created.
Today we rode over to Melbourne, Florida (90 miles) for the one-year checkup of my back surgery. We were blessed to see one of the Scissor-tailed Kites flying along in the field. They are here in Florida for a few months, starting in April or May. We always enjoy watching them, especially when they turn and you get a glimpse of the “scissor” tail.
