MA - Northern Shrike 03/02
Spotted this Northern Shrike from the road whilst heading north for a family outing in Vermont. Much like all of the shrikes I've seen in Gill (including two in our yard) it was brief and aloof, not really co-operating too well for pictures. I got just one record shot from the car taken at about 100 meters distance.
Northern Shrike - east of Northfield Mount Hermon School, Gill, Franklin Co., MA. March 2nd, 2014.
