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.

Wow. That definately explains what I observered. This guy was eating what appeared to be a baby bird that was impailed onto a twig in this tree. I was going to snap a shot of that but decided to go with the better side of him. Thanks alot.

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.
