A Northern Shrike made an appearance in my neighborhood here in Woodstock,
VT this afternoon causing chaos among the feeder birds followed by utter
silence and their seeming disappearance for several hours as they
presumably hid from the grim reaper. This marks only the second record for
shrike in my yard over the last 21 years.
