An excellent piece of wildlife photography, which for me ticks all the right boxes and many more.

Bill, what a smart, subtly attired bird, and in such a lovely setting! What are those luscious looking berries?

He looks as if he is about to feast on your mulberry bush Bill. With a beak like that I reckon he could clear most of them in one swoop. Super shot of the bird.

A fine capture Bill. He looks a lot like the african cuckoo shrike but with bolder markings. A

Great capture. I assume you are once again only getting to see quite how tasty your Mulberries are? Tongue

Nice of your shrike to lean so the light hits the eye. Excellent comp for Mr. Blackface. None of those on Canada's west coast, Vancouver Island. TG

A terrific detailed portrait of this menacing looking bird, he looks like a fella not to be trifled with.
