The following pictures were taken at Black Creek Park.
And then like a lighting bolt, the shrike dove to the ground to take the mockingbird that was there! The mockingbird was alert, however, and dodged the strike. A yelling match ensued between the birds for a few seconds. That was enough for the shrike and it flew back into the bush, then disappeared.
Northern Mockingbird acting as if nothing just happened. What poise!
