    I captured this guy today with my DS0 and 70-300VR lens. I can't find any info on this guy.

    Loggerhead Shrike. Takes bugs, lizards, mice and impales them on thorns or barbed wire for a meal at another time.

    Often these birds will have a "home" bush or section of fence on which they will hang their lunch on. So you can go back and look for them in the same place. Find a cool bug and put it where the bird will find it. They can be a pain to photograph well. This is a great shot.
