For the past three winters a Loggerhead Shrike periodically arrives at my 
feeders. He doesn't eat from the feeders, he just enjoys terrorizing the 
finches. He showed-up yesterday morning while it was still snowing and stayed 
around for about an hour. Also, the daggone Starlings and R-W BBs have been 
flocking in and devouring my dog's food to the extent I've had to take it up. 
Below are photos from yesterday of the Shrike and a Starling freezing his 
feathers-off...
Enjoy,
