Bird Report 030710: Shrike plus

   Nigel Bates reports: "Along with many others, I observed the Northern Shrike [Saturday] along Disposal Rd at 4:45 p.m. (it made an appearance at almost exactly the same time as Friday).
   "Other good birds present in the impoundments and surrounding area were: dozens of Canvasbacks, a Merlin, 3 Harriers, at least 5 White-crowned Sparrows, and a Ring-necked Pheasant (making the longest flight I have ever seen out of this species).
    "I then made a foray to Ridgefield and found the Monk Parakeets (about 8 were visible) at the usual spot — corner of Edgewater and Railroad Aves." (Thanks, Nigel!)
