John Sullivan of CA once seeing the bird speculated on it being a possible
BUT, hundreds of birders raced to see this bird, all posting on eBird and the like
they had seen a "brown" Shrike.
Nearly any had
ever seen a Brown Shrike in their lives, some who had only seen one before, but
they said they saw one here!
BUT a bunch of websites including Joe Morlans, the ABA, and eBird, posted this bird as a "brown Shrike" over and over
for weeks, eBird being typically incorrect with totally incorrect and bogus
posts as usual, when it was clearly NOT a brown Shrike!!
Anyone with experience
with Brown Shrikes would have seen
that this individual left HUGE questions
on it being a brown! But that didn't
stop them from posting that as their ID. Even though they were dead wrong.
And, who knows How Many Birders have it on their life lists as brown shrike.
Even ones you'd think you could
respect, have not backed down on this INCORRECT ID of brown shrike. So
This individual was well documented in an excellent article by Peter Pyle - American
Birds Volume 69: No. 1, 2015 - August thru November 2014
