I spent a couple of hours driving around the various back roads number of Napanee/Newburgh and located 5 Loggerhead Shrikes including 3 colour banded individuals. It was great to watch them hunt insects successfully. In the general area there was a good number of Eastern Meadowlark, American Kestrel, Eastern Bluebird, and Savannah Sparrows.
