Loggerhead Shrike

Uploaded by: SunsetFL

lakeworth, FL

Caption: I saw multiple viewings of Loggerhead Shrikes while at John Prince Park in Lakeworth Florida. Info about the Loggerhead Shrike: A small gray, black, and white bird of open areas, the Loggerhead Shrike hardly appears to be a predator. But it uses its hooked beak to kill insects, lizards, mice, and birds, and then impales them on thorns to hold them while it rips them apart. Info from http://www.allaboutbirds.org/labs/

I used to see these in South Carolina, but never anywhere else. They were easy to mistake for mockingbirds, being about the same size and color, but the black eye band was distinctive. Never saw one capture prey, but not sure I would like to {{shiver}} ! Nice clear closeup shot, Bev!

Fantastic portrait!
I've got a Northern Shrike in my yard on occasion, and it's neat to see it put its prey on the barbed wire nearby.

About SunsetFL

SunsetFL

People change and so do profiles. It was April 2004 that I started my photgraphy journey that started with posting pics of a family of owls. I didn't have a clue what depth of field, aperture, or manual mode were. But you folks and my husband encouraged me and we documented the owls until the last baby fledged and left home. Left with a huge hole in my time and a larger hole in my heart I started to photograph other birds, animals and of course sunrises and sunsets. Photography is absolutely my passion and birds in flight and nesting experiences are among my favorites.Create your own visitor map!
