On 3/25 Giff B. posted the following: " They really start to pick up in the Coastal Plain, and if you drove
around enough country roads you could find 10-15 in any given day. " I can second this statement. I live in the Upper Coastal Plain and regularly see shrikes during my travels in the area. I know of several places that shrikes can be found regularly, one frequents my yard. I often see shrikes and kestrals sitting on powerlines in close proximity to each other . My work carries me into the Piedmont often and I rarely see a shrike . Each year on the spring and fall migration counts in Monroe county we will usually pick up one or two at most.
