  1. oh, i’d love to see a shrike!

    • Hi Theresa, It is a very unusual-looking bird with a black stripe on its face and is just smaller than a dove. I believe it to be a small type of bird in the hawk family. I saw it for just a moment while it was on the ground and then it flew off. Hope you’ll get to see one. Have a pleasant Thurs. tomorrow!

  2. Wow you got a Heron’s nest! I have never seen a Shrike, but I saw a Towhee once and mistook it for a robin. I believe the shrikes are vicious hunters?

    • Hi Ginny, Yes, I will be doing a blog post this coming Friday on the heron’s nests. As for the Shrike, I have never before seen one so this is a life-time first for me. I think that this particular bird had hunted and had some type of food in its beak when I snapped its picture. Have a wonderful Thursday tomorrow!

  3. Wow, you have some of your old friends and some neat new ones! That’s pretty cool!

    • Hi Montucky, Well said! Thanks! Very comforting to see so many of the familiar birds and animals here. New types are interesting, too. Have a super good day tomorrow!
