I sighted a Northern Shrike at Springbrook Prairie in Naperville, DuPage County, this morning. The shrike was perched in some trees west of Crooked Slough. I also had about a dozen Lapland Longspurs that were foraging in a mowed area further to the west. There also was a flyover flock of about 100 longspurs and some horned larks.
