Northern Shrikes in Argyle, NY

Scott Varney
 

After a Mom visit today in Hudson Falls, I decided to try a new route home via County Route 47. Right before this road drops down a hill and ends at Barkley Lake, I observed a single Northern Shrike in a shrubby area on the left side of the road. I had just begun driving and was surprised to see a second Northern Shrike, only 100 feet from the first. Both birds were actively moving and continued to return to their own respective perches Quite a surprise!

Happy Birding,
