Shrike Out

This morning a Northern Shrike was reported at Old Crow Wetlands in Huntingdon County. A few of us decided to make the quick drive over there to try and find it later in the afternoon. Unfortunately, we ‘shriked out’ (Copyright: Steve Brenner). Luckily, we were able to get great looks at an Orange-crowned Warbler as well as a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk, among other species. Around 9;30pm, a few of us decided to go search for owls at Scotia Barrens in Centre County. We were able to hear two Eastern Screech-Owls and see one Barred Owl.
