Loggerhead Shrike    Lanius ludovicianus

The Loggerhead Shrike is a common bird throughout the United States.  It breeds in just about every state and south into Mexico.  During the winter months, the birds in the northern states will migrate to the southern states.

In Florida, the Loggerhead Shrike is a permanent breeding resident throughout the state.  During the winter months, it is quite common in north and central Florida, uncommon in most coastal areas, and rare in extreme southern Florida.
