Oklahoma official state cutting tool

126 scissor-tailed flycatcher

I knew I would see this bird on a work trip to Oklahoma, and as it turned out it took only till southwest Missouri for a windshield sighting. In Oklahoma I saw dozens of them on powerlines or in flight. The scissortail is Oklahoma's state bird, its tail indeed spectacularly scissored for more than half the body length. I probably should have bought the scissortail refrigerator magnet.
