Northern Shrike (juvenile – note scaly pattern on the breast and belly) Dec. 27 2013 by Peter Beales

We had a juvenile Northern Shrike in our backyard in town at Lock 19 this afternoon.  Interestingly I also spotted one just west of the Tanney cabin on the Kawartha Nordic ski trails at Haultain yesterday.
