The shrike was first spotted Tuesday and was seen again today here at North
Branch Nature Center. We watched it flying around the perimeter of the open
fields on the property here, and even saw it chase a White-breasted
Nuthatch! The nuthatch got away and it continued hopping about the crowns
of trees near the community garden before we lost sight of it.
We also heard the rattling of a Belted Kingfisher near the river. Good
