Returning Scissor-tailed Flycatcher at Twin Trails Park

I saw that Bob Rodrigo had reported the presumably returning SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER at Twin Trails Park yesterday so Rob and I stopped by to have a look at her.  Easily visible this afternoon/Friday in the eucalyptus trees in the park and spending a lot of time on the ground on the adjacent school grounds and perching on the chain-link fences.

This would be her fourth returning year per eBird, with hybrid fledglings (partnering with a Western Kingbird) reported in 2016 and 2017 but none last year.  A few more details, park location, and a terrible documentation photo can be found here!
