Today Near the TCAAP WVA, I Saw a Shrike Attack

Within a few minutes of entering the area, I came across this northern shrike. I snapped a few photos from a distance then drove up closer. This image is a cropped a bit. I wondered why the bird didn't fly off as I approached but I soon found out. It had a bead on shrew.  (I also saw a giant murder of crows, perhaps 300 or so and I saw a great horned owl and two kestrels.)
