Shrike





One of the reasons I like visiting Florida is that there are many species of birds there, one of which is the loggerhead shrike. In 2007, I photographed a nest with four young birds that looked like they were about ready to leave. (They flew away the day after I made these photos.) They allowed me to get very close physically and with my 70-300 mm lens I captured several close-up images.

Feel free to check out more photos of these birds at: http://www.lanephotography.com/birds/loggerhead_shrike/loggerhead_shrike_01.htm
