The one I saw in the north-central corner of Bradford two weeks ago, clearly
had the eye within the black "mask", with black above the bill, and not a
noticeably large bill.  I felt confident that the one I saw was a
Loggerhead. Would be great to know that there are two shrikes in the area.

I was checking the SW corner of Bradford Farm this morning to see the
Loggerhead Shrike, and found a Northern Shrike in the same place. I can see
how this bird might be confused with a Northern Shrike. The Loggerhead may
still be out there. 


This bird has a large bill with a hook at the end, a light base to the lower
m axilla, wavy lines across the breast (hard to see), the eye is bordered
above by gray, and there is no black over the front of the head above the


I have some pictures I can send you on request.
