Wonderful! I forwarded it to a non-birder friend and he said his cat was pawing at the screen.



I like the way (at ~ 11 mins) the adult catches the fecal sac from the just (over)fed young to remove it from the nest site.

This is a phenomenal video of the Loggerhead Shrike, taken right here in Arkansas (near Marion) by Larry McPherson. Includes some apparently never filmed behaviors, like the bird removing the gut of a grasshopper before eating, to avoid noxious chemicals. Also includes wonderful footage of young practicing their impaling skills with leaves. Our own Than Boves is mentioned in the acknowledgments.
