Juvenile Loggerhead ShrikeRecently Fledged Loggerhead Shrike

The past few times I have gone to Antelope Island the Loggerhead Shrike fledglings have been very visible and active. They are learning what to eat, what not to eat and they are still being fed by the adults. The weather the last time I was on the island wasn’t all that great at times as clouds bloomed towards the north and west which didn’t make for the best background in this image of a recently fledged Loggerhead Shrike. It won’t be long before these young Loggerhead Shrikes earn the name “Butcher Bird” by following their parents wing beats!
