Passing this along.
From Howie Sternberg:
1/6/15 - Haddam, Haddam Meadows - 1 N Shrike observed from the east end of the fish hatchery dam. At 12:05 pm, the Northern Shrike flew from the middle of the fish hatchery dam and landed half way up a tree along east edge of fish hatchery 100 feet north of the fish hatchery yellow gate entrance. Perched for about 15 seconds, it then flew to the west side of fish hatchery and was lost from view. Not enough time to photograph, but recognized markings and behavior of the Northern Shrike from previous sightings by the Haddam Meadows State Park fish hatchery. Nearby Blue Jays, Chickadees and Juncos called their alarms and scattered away. Again observed on a day with little to no wind.
