Howdy all,

While taking the cool "back way" from Hellertown to Easton early last
week I saw something that looked fairly shrike-ish sitting on a wire
along Easton Rd by Country Side lane.

I've never seen a shrike before. This bird was on a wire and I noticed
it had a prominent mask and a kind of compact look to its body. This
bird had somewhat of a tannish coloration. From what I can see pic wise
online it looks similar to an immature Northern shrike.

Its behavior was pretty chill. By the time I turned around and got back
there it was gone.

Happy birding,
