The Loggerhead Shrike is perhaps my favorite bird. Not only do they know how to make black, white and gray look quite handsome, but they have a habit of impaling their prey on barbed wire fences and thorns. I see them all over Central Florida, most frequently where there’s a field and a barbed wire fence.
