She (he) is gorgeous . . . . .sorry don’t know how to tell with Grey Shrikes!
Cute! Don’t believe I have ever seen this bird before.
He looks lovely, though a bit haughty, as if he’s checking out the neighbourhood and not sure if it’s good enough for him.

I managed this single shot before he flew off. I see it about now and then.
An amazing photograph. The texture in the feathers is wonderful.
I was fortunate to get this single shot before it flew away. I was taken with the feathers, too. Thanks for stopping by, Janet.
Great closeup – did you use a zoom for this Christine? The detail in their feathers is delightful.
Hello Claudette. I used the 55mm-200mm zoom lens on the Nikon D3000 – set on 200mm and 800 ISO. I saw the strike-thrush on top of the grapevine fence and guessed it was the way to the birdbath and managed this one shot through the window before it spotted me. I was pleased with myself. 🙂
So you should be Christine, it really is lovely.
