To add to what Marc had yesterday —
Lori Arent and I watched a singing Loggerhead Shrike this morning near the Point Church, south of Raleigh, on a phone line. It was last seen in the grove of trees south of the church. This is not far from where I had a singing bird in March, but it moved on. I fear this one could move on as well, though John Connors had 1-2 in this area last summer.
Shrike is a rare bird now in most of the Piedmont. As it is not yet an eBird write-in for Wake County, we’ll report them here.
Only one Mississippi Kite this morning along Mid-Pines Road; the flock from last week seems to have gone, but at least the species is still present and presumed nesting above Yates Pond.
