I have posted a handful of shots of the Northern Shrike in the last month (see, this, in particular). So, why more? This is a case of shrike while the iron is hot.
This peculiar bird is hunting around here briefly before heading north to breed. On previous occasions, I have seen it in Kokanee Creek Park in the grasslands adjacent to the Lake. Alas, on 8th April, the Park was closed (it’s a covid thing). The following day, a shrike appeared at my home. OK, I had to record the event.
A Northern Shrike perched in a bush outside my bedroom window.
And soon flew off — seen here just entering the camera frame.
