Northern Shrike Visits Pat Folsom’s Yard

Posted on Friday 26 January 2007

This shrike has been seen at Pat’s yard several times this winter. They breed in regions to the north and are seen during the winter here. Shrikes capture and kill small songbirds and will visit feeders seeking prey. Shrikes will occasionally store their uneaten food by skewering the prey onto a long thorn on a tree or bush.
