Totally captivated in 2007 by the live camera feed of the Hornby Island nesting Bald Eagles in B.C., I was drawn into birding and have never looked back. Thus begins my account of what I'm fortunate enough to discover each day and perhaps capture with my camera.

Follow-up to Banded Loggerhead Shrike Sighting in Carden

A reply from Ontario's Loggerhead Shrike Recovery Program was received today, expressing gratitude for reporting my sighting of the banded Loggerhead Shrike. It's a bird that there's been no record of yet for this year, and their Carden biologist will follow up on it immediately. 

The coloured band combination indicates it to be a three year old male that was banded in 2013, and has been a successful breeder in the area for the past two years, and perhaps now is doing so again this year, hopefully. 

Watch this space for further developments.
