I was shocked as heck this morning to see a Loggerhead Shrike at Little Creve Couer. It was in a shrub and on the wires in the area of the parking lot for the no-longer-there ballfields on River Valley Drive. I park at a small turn out in the area of the old parking lot. There are concrete barriers there and room for one or two cars. I also had a Phoebe up by the maintainance shed.

Last week I had a flock of Vesper sparrows in the area near the shrike.  Ths week I did not relocate them.
