We had a successful day in the vicinity of the Scrub Jay Rd. (aka Grassy
Lake Rd.) and Sullivan Rd. north of Mineola.  The highlight was a
scissor-tailed flycatcher (thanks Joyce for your recent posting).  We found
the bird on the south side of Sullivan Rd. west of Scrub Jay Rd.
approximately half way between Scrub Jay Rd. and the barricade.  Other
interesting observations were a pair of bald eagles apparently engaging in a
courtship/mating flight, two red-tailed hawks in the same activity, and, of
course, the name sake of the road.  We also saw eastern towhees, not that
exciting a find, but a lifer for us.
