To add to the shrike sightings...
My very first bird of the new year was a shrike seen in my backyard yesterday (Jan 2). Presumably the same immature Dave Mallard and I saw during the Sandwich CBC on Dec 30th... which was right across the road - light brown wash on the chest, but overall grayish with a partial mask.
Not sure what they're eating with the dearth of songbirds... hopefully they have some intel on a second wave of irruptive finches!
