[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I came across this picture while browsing through numerous images from my previous trips to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and other places. Though I had posted couple of photos of the long Tailed Shrike before, this one somehow managed to escape my attention. So thought of sharing this image with other TN members.

These are widespread residents of the Subcontinent. The adults have grey mantle, rufous colored scapulars and upper backs, narrow black foreheads, rufous sides and black tails.

Habitat: Bushes, open cultivations, open forests & gardens.

Hello Satirtha,
I'm glad you spotted this shot in your archives, is a winner in my book. Exceptional detail and lovely colors in its plumage. You made wonderful eye contact and even captured a bit of catchlight. I love the cute little twist of its head pose. Well done!!

This is a remarkably sharp and colourful image of a Long-tailed Shrike, Satirtha.
That catch-light in the eye is a delight.
Thanks for sharing this hidden gem from your archives.

Hello Satirtha,
