Merry Christmas for all friends,

Bull-headed Shrike (Lanius bucephalus)

The bull-headed shrike is the most popular shrike in Japan. This picture is female one.

from Wikipedia...
It is 19-20 cm long. The male has a brown crown, white eyebrow and black mask. The back is grey-brown while the wings are dark with a white patch. The flanks are rufous and the rest of the underparts are whitish with fine barring. Females are similar but duller and browner with a brown mask and no white wing-patch. The species has harsh grating and chattering calls and will also mimic other birds.
It breeds in north-east China, Korea, Japan and far-eastern Russia (Ussuriland, Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands).

Japanese name 'Moz' means one hundred tongues derived from good mimic.

Have a nice X'mas,
