Ok thanks. Hoping it was logger head. They are found in Ontario but very rare. Used to be more but they are dwindling

I'll offer a trade birdwalker. Capture and send my area one of your Northern Shrikes, and I'll do the same for you with a Loggerhead Shrike, which I see alot of. LOL.

I'll pass on that trade Barnswallow. While I don't have a ton of starlings and house sparrows, I already have enough of each of them for my taste. I might take some Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays from your neck of the woods as part of the trade, as long as you don't throw in any American Robins. I saw enough of them on my recent trip to Ohio to last me for a year or two until my next visit to that part of the country.

argh! I woke up yesterday to something hitting the roof and bedroom window. It sounded like a pile of rocks hitting the house. I opened up the window and a HUGE flock of starlings flew up into the trees. I have no idea what they were doing on the house but it sure scared the liver out of me. LOL

Yeah flocks of starlings are kind of spooky in any event because there is just something about a flock of blackbirds, be it starlings, brewers blackbirds, grackles, etc, that just reminds me too much of that creepy old movie from Alfred Hitchcock, the Birds.
