Very quiet day, no movement. Saw 4 birds: 3 am tree sparrows and 1 northern shrike. The shrike was first seen on Tuesday. On Wednesday it buzzed a bald eagle sitting in a snag. Today, sitting in the car, it landed in a 15 ft tree about 35 ft away. Flew off. Drove along 3/4 mile and back and the shrike was again sitting in the same tree. Pics are posted on Facebook at Lake County Indiana Birding.
