Antelope Island State Park is full of juvenile Loggerhead Shrikes right now so it looks like the shrikes had a very successful nesting season. I was tickled to photograph this juvenile shrike last week while it was perched on a dark Tintic Quartzite boulder, most of the boulders on the north end of the island are much lighter and which makes getting the exposure set correctly much harder. Plus I don’t often see them perched on the boulders.
With the bounty of spiders available to feast on the juvenile Loggerhead Shrikes ought to do just fine and become strong adults!
Life is good.
