Re(1): Northern Shrike singing...again

The Shrike was back at the Bracebridge Ponds at 11:30 a.m. today. It was perched in a shrub near the dumping ponds and appeared to be looking down into the ditch. As I was watching the bird, a few friendly Chickadees came over to me looking for a handout. They did not appear to notice the Shrike, but the Shrike sure noticed them and came flying fast towards me. At the last moment it veered up and over my head and landed at the top of a poplar tree north of cell 4. After it had settled there for a few minutes it began to sing. When a Red-tailed Hawk soared overhead, the Shrike stopped singing, gave three harsh calls, and moved down the tree to perch amidst several branches. It was still perched there when I left around noon and remained silent.
