bird photography : loggerhead shrike

The Loggerhead Shrike may be a songbird in classification, but its feeding habits have a decidedly gruesome edge more akin to the raptors: the shrike impales its prey upon thorns and barbed wire.  This one waited perched upon a power line outside Chapman's Pond, looking for likely victims for its carnage.
