Continuing Northern Shrike - 2/21
- Saturday, Feb 21, I relocated the NORTHERN SHRIKE reported on the 15th
from the Ten Mile River area by David Jensen. The bird was along the
Haul Rd about a half mile north of Inglenook Creek (about 1.5 miles
south of Ten Mile River) at 10:00. At this location a small inlet from
the ocean comes in next to the road and there are trees and bushes on
the east side of the road. The shrike was perched in the only tree on
the west side of the road (a small dead pine tree maybe four feet tall).
I spotted the perched bird from about 100 yds away. Unfortunately it
flew seconds later. It disappeared to the southwest behind a mound and
even though I searched for another 90 minutes I was unable to relocate
Also of interest were three BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES and one ROCK
SANDPIPER at Laguna Point.
