[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Brown Shrike (Lanius cristatus) is a bird in the shrike family that is found mainly in Asia. It is closely related to the Red-backed Shrike (L. collurio) and Isabelline Shrike (L. isabellinus). Like most other shrikes, it has a distinctive black "bandit-mask" through the eye. and is found mainly in open scrub habitats, where it perches on the tops of thorny bushes in search of prey. Several populations of this widespread species form distinctive subspecies which breed in temperate Asia and migrate to their winter quarters in tropical Asia. They are sometimes found as vagrants in Europe and North America.

Hello Foozi,
I must say you couldn't ask for a finer presentation, looks like you were sitting right beside this pretty little shrike. Perfectly focused allowing us to view it's beautiful features and attractive plumage in exceptional detail. You managed to capture wonderful eye contact and even a bit of that ever sought after catchlight. Well done!!
