Searching for Northern Shrike at Malden...
Is it just me or do Golden crowned Kinglets always look upset? LOL! Anyway, I read with amazement on Friday night that a Northern Shrike was spotted at Malden Park. Wow! I went as early as I could on Saturday morning, but had no luck finding it!
I will go back and check throughout the Winter. I would love to see a Northern Shrike. I've seen a Loggerhead Shrike in Florida, but they are almost easy to see if you go to Titusville, one hour east of Orlando.
Anyway, on my search, I took some photos of common birds including:
Golden Crowned Kinglet
American Tree sparrow (first for this Fall)
and some others.
I did not see my Northern Shrike. I will have to continue looking!
PS: Here is a Loggerhead Shrike I saw in Florida in March 2010:
