Finally got some good shots of one of my nemesis birds, the northern shrike. Every time I'd seen one previously, it seemed that it was backlit silhouette, or the light was gray and gloomy, or it was partly obscured by branches... This little fellow, though, was very cooperative, perching repeatedly in the open, in good light, and close enough for good photos!

Yup... Owls were there, but stayed way back until almost sunset. Best shots of the day were of this little guy and a very cooperative female harrier...

Nice find Rocky! I've only seen a few of these, and no photos.

You did not miss the shot when the opportunity came. Great results.


Keep 'em flying,

Thanks, Greg! He landed relatively close and almost waited for me to take some shots before he flew off... made my day!

Thank you, Peter! I've only ever seen one; perhaps they divide the territory?
