This is a White Helmet Shrike.
Very good composition but the photo needs a bit of sharpening though.

Hallo Karl
Lovely close-up with great details and clarity. It is a real beautiful bird with delicate and fine feathers. I like the pose you have captured it in, displaying the inside feathers of the tailpiece. The dark green background is super and highlights lots of the details. I like the colour of the paws and the doubled circled yellow eye is something special. The thorns on the branch adds a special touch to this image and rounds it of well. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
