Two days ago I posted a portrait of a juvenile Loggerhead Shrike that I had photographed on Antelope Island State Park, today I am posting an image of an adult Loggerhead Shrike taken a day after I photographed the young shrike.
This adult was busy trying to feed a passel of fledglings and took a short break on the top of a Sagebrush near the pickup. This time of the year the adults look a bit ragged, probably from all the hectic activity involved in taking care of their young although I am just guessing about that. At any rate during the fall and winter the adults do have a more “dapper” look than they do during the breeding season.
