Saw the Shrike today around 3:30pm just about 50 yards north of 160th on Hardesty. Had to drive up and down Hardesty several times, but finally got lucky.

It was sitting right above the caution (stop sign) sign then flew just west into a tree about 30 yards into the field. Didn't get a great look at it with just binoculars and cloudy day, but it did seem lighter than Loggerhead Shrikes that I've seen in the area.

Longtailed Duck still present and feeding between the ice sheet and the bridge as of 3:00pm

Nice birds!

Go forth and bird,
