for the love of birds & photography
Lovely shot Tammywish you a very nice day.Greetings, Joop
Thank you Joop!
A wonderful image Tammy, Loogerhead Shrikes are a favorite of mine.
Thank you Mia! They are quite interesting birds!
great catch with the insect! I understand these birds are dwindling?...
Thanks Rachelle! I'm not sure about the population, I do see them quite regularly around the wetlands.
Ohoops, how close you have come this Shrike. We have the Great Grey Shrike in Sweden. It looks almost the same and they are usually very shy.Congratulations! Nice pictures Tammy.Greetings / Kenny
Thanks so much Kenny! I tok the photos from the car as I very slowly passed them.
Two very fine shots of the Loggerhead Shrike. Congrats on the sighting and capture.
Thank you very much Larry!
such handsome birds! great shots. :)
Great portraits. I really like shrikes actually. I wonder why it's called "loggerhead"? I have only seen "Brown" and "Bull" shrikes in Japan but any shrike is of interest to me as there are none in Australia where I grew up. They're not big but amazing hunters.
Thanks Russell! I am not familiar with the Brown or Bull shrikes as the Loggerhead is the only shrike found in this area. I believe it is called a "loggerhead" due to the large size of its head relative to the size of its body.
Unas imágenes increibles. Felicidades Tammy. saludos desde Extremadura.

Delightful photography Tammy!
Great shots, Tammy. Looks very like the Grey Shrikes we see as rarities here. However, the only shrike I've seen is a Woodchat Shrike about this time last year. A picture of it on my blog somewhere!
That pointy beak does look dangerous. How nice to catch him with his dinner :)
I greatly appreciate your comments!
