Today’s photo is a loggerhead shrike from Julie’s Magic Light Show.   Beautiful bird — that sharp, curved beak gives a big clue on how he eats.  The funky thing about shrikes:  they are predators, but they don’t necessarily kill their prey right away.  If it is a larger insect or other creature, they pin their prey to a stake or some barbed wire or some other sharp object, and then pick it apart.  It’s odd predatory behavior and seemed oddly appropriate to me for this point in the primary season as the media tries to pin down candidates for a gotcha moment.

What’s catching your eye on the blogs or in the news this morning?
