In May and June 2006 Damon S. Calderwood, David R. James and I photographed birds in and around Burns, Oregon. I happened to find the nest of a Loggerhead Shrike containing eggs about 4 feet off the ground in a sagebush. We worked from a blind and on one occasion I invited the biologist from Burns to sit in the blind and take photos. By this time the young were almost old enough to fledge. The photographer in the blind could watch the comings and goings of the adults. They could kill a mouse, vole or lizard and carve the prey up on a “butcher block” located directly behind the blind. At midday on the hottest days the family of shrikes would have a noonday siesta.
