Description

I have been watching a nesting pair of Loggerhead Shrikes for the past 4 years. They nest in virtually the same area each year, so I have been able to photograph some interesting nesting shots! In this photo these hungry hatchlings are being feed. When hatched they are blind and featherless. Fact: Though classified as a songbird this bird has a bird of preys attitude, it is the only bird that impales it’s prey!
