(Likely) the Last Shrike Update of the Day

IMG_3475-2  Several birders saw the Northern Shrike sporadically on Disposal Road from just after noon through 1:15 p.m. today (when we had to leave).

    We even had the good fortune of watching it cough up a pellet at the former Kingsland Landfill.

   Several birders saw the same show this morning and, as one commented, "Recycling on a landfill — how appropriate."

   We saw the bird across the road from the Carillon, just behind that water retention pond, typically perched very high in a bare tree. (This shot was taken just after noon.)

   Scroll down for earlier posts for directions and more info on this bird.

   Feel free to e-mail Jim Wright of the NJMC if you plan on looking for this bird.

   We are hoping he hangs around for the Christmas Bird Count this weekend — if not longer.
