Sunset Beach, NC Loggerhead Shrike Nest

While vacationing in North Carolina this past June, I was delighted to find a LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE nest with three chicks and two parents at a birding hotspot, Sunset Beach. I took some photos and then returned a few days later to note their progress. The nest looked to be destroyed upon my second visit, but all three chicks were out and about having a fine time of it. Here are some photos of the event. Enjoy.Incidentally, there is an interesting program going on up North relating to the breeding of these threatened birds in Canada. One can learn more about it HERE.
Best,

Dan
