Photographer's Note

These birds are named Fork-tailed Flycatcher in English, in Brazil they are named "Little scissors" because the shape of their tails. Science name is "Tyrannus savana" . They live from southern Brazil and Argentina to Southern Mexico and fly to Amazon basin during the winter.
Here in my region they arrive in October and stay here for some time and when the swallows arrive in February they have fights and go away to north.
Here we can see two of them. I guess the male is the one with longest tail. They love to eat flying insects, but can eat little fruits too.

Esses pássaros são tesourinhas (Tyrannus savana), eles vivem do sul do México até o sul do Brasil e norte da Argentina, mas voam todos para a Amazônia evitando o inverno.
Aqui eles chegam em outubro e ficam comendo insetos voadores e pequenos frutos, mas quando as andorinhas chegam por volta de fevereiro, e começam a competir com elas, há brigas e logo as tesourinhas vão embora para o norte.
Pelo que eu li o pássaro de rabo maior é o macho e assim temos aqui um casal.
