Great capture of this little bird on a wire. I am not familiar with the Loggerhead Shrike
so thanks for the introduction. I really like the shrike (Laniidae) family of birds including
all the groupings i.e. shrikes, helmetshrikes, puffback shrikes, bush shrikes, tchagras,
and also the boubous. Especially the bush shrikes have some very colourful birds and
although the are rather shy and seldom seen they are a real feast for the eyes. I am no
specialist in this field though, I merely enjoy them, so I cannot confirm the ID of this little
one. However, from what I can see in my books and on Wikipedia it seems to me that
you are 100% correct. A lovely sharp image with a nice POV, great colours and a neat
BG to compliment the subject.
Well done MF and TFS.

Great shot with lovely details captured. A well focused and pleasant image of this beautiful bird with its prominent markings. Great composition and pose. The detail of the feathers and the area around the eye is displayed well. The colour of the beak is stunning. Thanks for sharing. Best regards

This Loggerhead Shrike (yet another bird I have not met in person) is so beautiful posing on the wires. His wonderful face, plumage and wings are shown in excellent detail and color. I love the eye shining through the black eye mask. His beak is shining. The background and the composition are terrific.
