Northern Shrike Coughing Up a Pellet

IMG_3543-4   We happened to get a photo of the Northern Shrike coughing up a pellet yesterday, and thought we'd pass it along in case you found the whole notion of pellets hard to swallow.

   NJMC Naturalist Michael Newhouse is hopeful that the sightings of the shrike coughing up pellets is a sign that it has found a plentiful food supply and might stick around a bit.

  The shrike has been seen along Disposal road for five days now, and possibly could have been here a while before it was first seen last Friday.
