Bohemian Waxwings

I've seen Bohemian Waxwings in three different locations in the past two weeks; Nackawic, Lindsay and in my neighbors yard (Woodstock). I got a few close up shots of the flock in my neighbors yard as they allowed me to stand quite close. Here is one of the pictures from yesterday.

Northern Shrike

At the beginning of the year, I had a Northern Shrike in my backyard just for a few seconds. There were nearly 100 American Goldfinches feeding away, but suddenly they all flew away. I looked up and at the top of one of my trees was a shrike. It wasn't there long enough to get a picture, however I did get one today. I was on my way to Houlton, and happened to see this one before I got onto the highway just outside of Woodstock.
