Good shots. I use to see them when I was a kid. Saw their dinner on the barb wire more often, but they were around. Haven't seen any here at all, must be too far North.

Thanks, saw one of the first of the season last week with a mouse near him on the fence, but too far away for a shot.

We see them pretty much all year here, I have several I saw all winter but we get quite a few in the fall and spring passing through

Great capture of the "Butcher Bird"... they are certainly a unique predator bird for their size... nice shots... Never seen this bird, I just see the Northern Shrike up here.
