Hi There, Shrek Junior!

We finally met our new little Loggerhead Shrikes.  I’ve been watching the adults for a while, and I figured we’d see the babies any day.  This guy was hanging out in a palm tree at the Town Commons/Tour Point intersection.  You can tell he’s a juvenile because of the orangey edge to his beak.  I think it’s left over from when he was a tiny fluffball in his nest, when his bright orange beak made it easier for his mom to feed him.
