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.
