This is a shrike I rarely see. Maybe once each year. And this meeting was only for a few seconds and it was gone. But it made my day. Best image so far of this species.

  3. Awesome bird and a brief encounter makes it all that much more exciting. Don't have any birds like that around here. Very nice catch, Monica ... you must have been camera ready :)

  8. Very nice looking bird by the fence. I like the contrast of the black and gray of it's feathers.
