Northern Shrike at Mormon Lake Overlook
BB Oros and I birded Mormon Lake this morning.

At the main overlook we had distant looks at a Rough-legged Hawk, but it was generally slow birding.

We did find a shrike working the tree line below the bluff and after a lot of chasing around finally got close enough to see it well and even here it frequently vocalizing, exactly matching Northern Shrike on Ibird.  BB got diagnostic fotos which he will post a little later.

A very cold morning, but definitely exciting.
Tom

RE: Northern Shrike at Mormon Lake Overlook
Lake Mary Road will be closed on the east side of Mormon Lake starting this afternoon, 2/20/2019, because of the coming snowstorm. This will preclude access to the overlooks. Traffic will be routed around the west side through Mormon Lake Village. No info on how long the closure will last.
