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
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.
