I had a Northern Shrike this afternoon at Pine Hill Road Grasslands in Lancaster. Not much else, but for a calling raven.

> Northern Shrike 1 Using fenceposts around grassy field to the right on the way out from parking lot. I had binoculars only, so approached to try to age it. It moved to the top of a lone pine, then flew across the road to the top of the biggest bush, keeping out of close viewing range. Suspect immature, based on non-prominent black mask.

> American Crow 2
