DeGray Lake State Park was a quite respite from our journey eastward. It was a taste of home with the green forest, grass and familiar insect sounds. My highlight of these couple of days was seeing this bird below. I have never seen one of these before.
This is a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher on the golf course of DeGray Lake. This bird is not in our area but breed in the Arkansas, according to my experts with allaboutbirds.org. This bird is small, appears Mocking Bird-ish (they are related to kingbirds) but when that amazing tail is flared out it is striking.
At our campsite there was a DUNG BEETLE doing his thing – rolling dung – backwards.
Not many pictures of Arkansas the miles and acclimation back into the heat/humidity are taking a toll. THANK GOD for Air conditioning!
