Loggerhead Shrike  
Every so often I see Loggerhead Shrikes around. They're generally perched on a wire, or high in a tree. They're fairly small black and white birds, so from a distance it's difficult to appreciate the bandit like appearance of their black masked face. They look like the raccoons of the bird world. This one was perched high in a Cypress which fortunately had not grown back enough foliage to hide the bird from view.
