Two beautifully observed and captured images of this wonderful Shrike with superb colouring and pin sharp detail. A joy to watch and a capture. Thanks for sharing Mike.

V1 is a great shot of a bird that's new to me, and V2 has that extra bit of attitude.

We have a grey shrike around here. They are seldom seen. Your shrike is a better dresser with that white shirt and dark eye band. The quality is top notch. Hooked beak is exactly the same. TG
