McCoy comments from IN-BIRD post: We found most of our targets with the only surprise being a LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE found by Don Gorney at the of CR500N & 200W in Newton Co., the same
site where a Northern Shrike had spent the winter. It was very vocal as though on territory and was seen by all participants. Jamie Claus reported that he had seen it at the same location 9 April. I had found a Loggerhead about a mile and a half away on CR225N on 3 April.
