"Yesterday afternoon I was in my living room and I looked at my bird feeder. I never noticed any birds. The I looked up into one of the trees and there I saw a Beautiful Northern Shrike. I scrambled for my camera and to get it ready.


When I got back the shrike was gone. Then I noticed it in the snow in another part of my yard with a house sparrow. It was nearing dusk and the windows are not very clean so donít be too critical. I think the pictures will tell the rest of the story. Your heart has to go out to this brave little bird".
