Loggerhead Shrike? Davenport Wa

Recommended Posts

My 7 year old son is very interested in birds, and I am hoping someone can help with this new bird we both saw.  To us novices it appears to be a loggerhead Shrike and I wondering what the pros here think?  I would estimate it was slightly smaller than a robin. It had a distinctive black 'mask' and in flight we could see flashes of white. It was in a tall tree surrounded by farm land. I was able to get a picture, but the quality isn't very good. You can see the shape and general colors. http://rs173.pbsrc.com/albums/w68/mjohnson47/Birds/IMG_7892.jpg?w=480&h=480&fit=clip

Yes, it's a Northern Shrike. The mask is narrow and the bill is (relatively) long with a pale base.
