Bird Report 121509 –Shrike, plus!

  Amidst all the hoopla about the Northern Shrike, neglected to say there was some other fine birding on Disposal Road on Monday.
  Yes, the shrike was seen well into the afternoon, but we also had: a Gray Ghost at 7:45 a.m., two Great Blue Herons, five Great Egrets, a Belted Kingfisher, at least three Redtails, Gadwalls, Pintails, and GW Teal — plus other usual suspects, from Downy WPs to Northern Mockingbirds. Disposal Raod is very birdy these days.

   Coming soon: The holiday season wouldn't be complete without a photo of a Northern Shrike coughing out a pellet by Disposal Road — something about too much fiber in his diet.
