Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Northern Shrike in Caroline
For a couple of days there's been a Northern Shrike on Creamery Road in
Caroline. It's been foraging in fields on the right side of the road,
coming from 79. This morning it was perching up on an isolated bush in the
middle of the upper field, the one with an electric fence around it. The
shrike was active and often out of sight, but it returned to that bush
frequently, perching on top of the bush in various locations. It also
perched on top of small fence posts near the bush a couple of times.

Also foraging over the fields was a Northern Harrier, and at least one
Eastern Meadowlark was active and singing in the field. A resident Common
Raven could occasionally be heard calling as well.
