I went out and filled our feeders this morning with lots of hulled  
sunflower seeds.  This brought in the hordes of chickadees and  
nuthatches (white- and red-breasted) that I've been feeding, but also  
two entirely unexpected birds.  First, a Rusty Blackbird came in and  
was foraging on the seed I spilled.  It hung around for an hour or so,  
coming in and feeding, then heading off to the woods.  Not long  
afterward, a Northern Shrike came in and scared off all the chickadees  
and nuthatches.  The Blue Jays were unfazed, though, so the shrike  
made a half-hearted pass at one of them before flying off.  Two great  
new yard birds in one morning!
