I think it's a type of shrike. Yup, just looked it up - a loggerhead shrike. :) have never seen one in person, just in books. But he's lovely!
I hear you, I wish the cardinals would honor my requests.
That's some sort of LOVELY birdie!
Hi Lisa,I may be an exception, but I like that picture with the twig in the way. It doesn't really detract from the bird and adds some extra something to the picture. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!SherrieFood for Thought
I love these pictures. There is just something about spring that is amazing!!
Oh, yes. I have had many such one-sided conversations with birds!
Wow, this is a great bird. It is one of the Shrikes. There is a Loggerhead Shrike and the Northern Shrike. Fantastic photos, Lisa!
Loggerhead Shrike. Perfect shots! I would love to get a little cooperation from these little critters. I talk to them, but they don't listen. Fortunately, I'm usually out in the country where no humans can hear me.
Yep, I was going to say Shrike, but others have already told ya. That'll teach me for being late ;-) Gorgeous bird and beautiful photographs!
That is such a cute little face and pretty markings!
