I've noticed the scissor-taileds as well. If you continue west on Truman, there is a pair of western kingbirds I see regularly on West Main and Industrial just west of Gerbes. (That's the most I've ever used west in one sentence.) It's a special treat to see both the kingbirds and the scissor-taileds on the same drive, less than 5 minutes apart.

A pair of scissor-tails has returned to the Walgreen’s next to the Jefferson City Mall off of Hwy 50 west of downtown. It’s been about a month since I first saw them this year. The pair seems to be nesting in the power pole/transformer on the edge of the Walgreen’s parking lot close to Truman Blvd.
