I looked outside the window and saw lots of birds at the feeders. A minute later nothing. I looked for a Coopers Hawk but saw a shrike take off really fast. After I heard a thump at the other window, I looked out and saw a Northern Shrike on the ground. He missed his prey. Easy to identify looking down at a few feet. I haven't seen any all winter and one shows up in the back yard in Russell County yesterday the 22nd.
