Chris Takacs reports: "It's 25 degrees with 20 mph winds at 7:45 a.m. and the Northern Shrike is singing away from a perch across the retention pond on Disposal Rd. at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst/North Arlington today." (Thanks, Chris!)
Chris makes a great point — if you're planning on looking for the shrike any time soon, dress warmly.
BTW, Because the bird was seen within three days of the Christmas Bird Count day for our region, it can be included in the count — but we will shoot for it on Sunday.
