We had a nice early afternoon outing at Klehm today in Winnebago Co. No
crossbills there or at Greenwood Cemetary where we also checked but I don't
tire of being up close to all the birds at Klehm that love all the berry
trees, pines, and dense understory there.

The best bird of the day for us though was probably the Northern Shrike
that was perched on a wire along Denny Rd. between Garden Prairie Rd. and
Woodstock Rd.

Full list from Klehm is below.
