Same Loggerhead Shrike. We are unsure
whether the second one was banded or unbanded. They both perched on
the wires and fence beside the road. 19 April 2015. In 2014 there
were only 16 pairs of Loggerhead Shrikes sighted in Ontario: 9 pairs
in Carden plus 11 unpaired birds, 6 pairs in Napanee and 1 pair in
Smiths Falls. This is not good news. It will be interesting to see
how many birds return to the Carden Alvar this breeding season.
