Notes & Observations

10/19/22 – The cute but vicious the Loggerhead Shrike is often found on barbed wire or thorny branches. It grabs a prey and impales it on the thorns. I usually don’t hear the Shrike vocalize but I got lucky and heard it recently and got to take a new recording of it. My husband and I always keep an eye out for this bird when driving around or going on a walk.
