Butcher Bird

Northern Shrike
As Lori was visiting our friend down in Victoria, I had to bird locally today. I took a walk down to the Englishman River Estuary where I spent an hour poking around. Species included: Pileated Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Red-winged Blackbird, American Robin, Northern Shrike, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Brown Creeper, Pacific Wren, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco, Song Sparrow, Golden-crowned Sparrow, Spotted Towhee, Evening Grosbeak, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Anna's Hummingbird, Steller's Jay, Common Raven, Northwestern Crow, Red-tailed Hawk, Belted Kingfisher, Bald Eagle and a few dabblers and gulls. Bird of the day was a beautiful Northern Shrike.
