Loggerhead Shrike

Lanius ludovicianus

Description:

"A small gray, black, and white bird of open areas, the Loggerhead Shrike hardly appears to be a predator. But it uses its hooked beak to kill insects, lizards, mice, and birds, and then impales them on thorns to hold them while it rips them apart."

Habitat:

Open woodland

Thank you James! I've never seen them before. I'm going back to that spot today - there were several flying.
