On a late day in April a walk along the Sand dunes of Boundary Bay Park I bumped into a juvenile Northern Shrike hunting among the fallen and moss covered logs. Shrikes may look like a grey robin, but in reality they are a hunter for certain. If you ever want to know what kind of food a bird eats, you just have to look at his beak. If you look closely to the end of this guys beak, you can see a definite curved hook which is for securing prey. Once in their summer or winter territory which they have chosen with a spikey plant or fence, on which, they leave their prey for a time when hunger calls.
