Northern Shrike

I went to the Novi Wetlands this morning and was finally able to get some photos of the Northern Shrike that has been wintering there. Before I had only seen the bird when I forgot my camera and this time he was very flighty so I wasn't able to get very close.

Afterwards I went over to Robert Long and could only find an American Black Duck and a Hooded Merganser with the Mallards. The Song Sparrows were singing in the reeds and I was able to find one of the Swamp Sparrows as well. Hopefully it is a sign that spring will be here soon.
