The Northern Shrike was on Creamery Road about 100 yards south of the ridge crest around 3:45 PM, sitting on one fence pole and another between stoops to the grass.

Found it very easily. Beautiful specimen. Performed beautifully, too, coming as close as 50 yards, and turning this way and that to give an all-around view. Never got a better look at one.

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.
