thought i would send out a heads up that i saw what i think was a shrike near sikes lake today. the bird was on phone wire near the abandoned house down the road from what used to be a chicken ranch on the bendy roads between 84th and 100th between sikes lake and west snoqualmie valley road. a basically black and white bird with a dark horizontal patch through the eye and a longish tail. flew away before i could get close enough to see it with 8x glass. head seemed very bulky, almost like a caspian tern, but not that big and the bill was not red.
maybe somebody who can actually see might be able to identify it for certain.
