Dear LA Co. Birders: I'm endeavoring to do the January eBird challenge, and in an effort to check local, under-birded places, went to John Zimmerman Park in Norwalk today. I was surprised to see a Loggerhead Shrike. It came to my attention by the buzzy song, and I was able to get a couple of pictures. attached one. It was on the west side, opposite the ball field. It flew and I was not able to relocate it. Though I know they are not rare, they are increasingly uncommon in L.A. County. Donna Bray Norwalk
