The rains of the week of 8 April 1979 brought the level of the Black Warrior River in Alabama to record levels. In the Demopolis-Greenesboro area, the river
crested at more than 7 m above flood stage, covering much of the surrounding areas with water. On 13 April 1979, I witnessed a Loggerhead Shrike (Lanius ludovicianus) taking prey from this floodwater.
