Loggerhead Shrike In Gas Field

Jonah Field, Wyoming

Loggerhead shrikes are a declining North American species that likes open prairie and sagebrush habitat. In the sage, they like tall stands in unbroken habitat. A pair had established a nest in 6' tall Wyoming big sagebrush along a sandy wash. I asked Dr. Anna Chalfoun why they would choose this site. She hypothesizes that with large stands of sagebrush declining, these birds have fewer places to go, so they may choose a nest site in one of the highest density natural gas fields.

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
