Unique bird found by side of road
This Loggerhead Shrike was discovered by a West Point family. He was sitting by the side of the road next to their mail box. We are not sure what happened to him, but he might have flown into a vehicle. The family found him on Sunday and got him to us on Monday the 15th. The interesting thing about Shrikes is that they will eat things like mice and other birds by impaling them on small twigs or barbed wire fences and then eating them. After a few days, the Shrike was able to be released in a nice wooded area where he can find the kind of lunch that he likes.
