Shrike Links


Loggerhead Shrikes have been listed as an Endangered Species in Eastern Canada, and a Threatened species in Western Canada.  As a result, much attention has been given to Loggerhead Shrikes in this country, as well as in the United States, where several sub-species are experiencing similar troubles.  We have attached a collection of Loggerhead Shrike links for you to explore, with the hope of better understanding the ongoing efforts of people around North America working with Loggerhead Shrikes.
