Northern Shrike (Lanius excubitor), Mormon Lake Overlook, Coconino County

This Northern Shrike was discovered and photographed by Eric Hough on 16 November 2008 at the Mormon Lake Overlook near Flagstaff.  A bird was also present in this location last year. 

Northern Shrike is a rare winter visitor to Arizona.

Note the the narrow black mask, pale lower mandible and the lack of contrast between throat and breast.
