While I was driving by a local retention pond, these little ones practically flagged me down with their noisy, incessant begging! This is the 2nd year I’ve seen a loggerhead shrike family at this location (assuming it was the same pair of mated adults both years). They appear to have picked the perfect spot for raising a family…lots of food and few predators. I’ve seen them on the ground and in multiple trees where they hang their prey, and often see the adults on nearby rooftops searching for prey. However, I haven’t spotted their actual nest yet…it’s definitely here though!
