First Bird Photo at New Work

Yesterday I got to watch a rocket launch from the new workplace and as I left for the day I got a chance to photograph my first bird encounter at this location. I was pulling out of the parking lot and noticed a Loggerhead Shrike flying in from above toward the ground. It then flew up to a spot next to me and proceeded to thrash a newly captured caterpillar into submission before it swallowed it down.

I love Shrikes and it was nice to have one as my first bird here at my new job. Birding has actually been pretty quiet this year for some reason but I hope to start getting more photo ops as I figure out this new landscape.
