[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.

Dear Foozi
I don't like collages because often subjects are too small, too many pictures and really of interest, but this one is great

A well composed collage with sharp and true colour pictures of Brown Shrike.

Hi Foozi,
What a wonderful and aesthetic collage you presented. Compiled with care - most of the images could be uploaded as standalone photos due to their quality in composition and technicality. My favorite images are top left, bottom left, bottom middle and middle right. Fantastic job! Bravo.
Friendly regards, László
