Subject: Re: [ia-bird] Shrike at Saylorville
This is very interesting to hear, as I have seen and photographed a
Northern Shrike on 3 separate occasions this past week (most recently
yesterday evening) on the Raccoon River Valley Trail just east of L Avenue
(south of Perry) in Dallas County. A first for me!
