the field. We walked in for closer looks and could see it more clearly.
After Rick and Bill M. left, Dan and I stayed and watched the shrike
hunting in the bushes, using its hovering maneuver.

trees and bushes there in the middle of the field, and the bird was hunting
in that area on both sides of the road.

over to see it, very much appreciated.
