The Loggerhead Shrike aka "The Butcher Bird"  - Known in many parts as the "Butcher Bird," it impales its prey on thorns or barbed wire before eating it, because it does not have the talons of the larger birds of prey.  "Loggerhead" refers to the relatively large head as compared to the rest of the body.

Nonac..love that cardinal shot..excellent !

Here's my first capture of a Phainopepla (<say that 5x fast :)


Phainopepla by Revup67, on Flickr

What was cool about this event is a fellow birder had his iPhone.  we quickly ID'd the bird, looked him up on Birdseye and started the bird call.  The bird actually began responding and creating a conversation of sorts with the iPhone.  He was intrigued enough so he also flew closer to our location so we could get up close shots..it was incredible to witness this as I had not before.
Thanks

A lot of really good pic's in this forum. I've only been photographing birds for the past 2 weeks, and I'm starting to appreciate the effort that it takes to get a great, in focus pic (I've taken heaps of pic's of in focus twigs, with a blurry bird somewhere in it) :)

As usual, fantastic pictures!

Mr Bean, I know what you mean but your shot is lovely.

ooF Fighters, I had a good laugh when I saw the pic. It is perfect.

revup67, hope your camera is feeling better :)

All you guys inspire me. Thanks.
