My wife and I checked the South Pittsburg, TN area on the way back from  
conducting the Jasper BBS route I have done for the past 30+ years specifically 
looking for the Scissor-tailed Flycatchers reported in the vicinity of Big  
Daddy's store just across the Stateline along US 72 in Jackson County, Alabama. 
No luck there after searching for 15 - 20 minutes and checking the first  exit 
in Alabama as well.
On the way home, we stopped to check the pond at the South Pittsburg Sewer  
Treatment Plant on the east side of the road (US 72). Nothing but Killdeer  
(10) were present. Heading on north, approximately 0.1 mile north of the plant, 
an adult Scissor-tailed Flycatcher flew across the road from east to west at  
11:17 AM CDT. It appeared to be a male. Subsequent efforts to relocate  it in 
the town of South Pittsburg--we checked the ballfields around the  High School 
and the fields around the foundry--were unsuccessful. 
Good birding,
