Brown Shrike


Today I am sharing my first sighting of a Brown Shrike.

Some info: Brown Shrikes breed in North Asian regions and come down south during the winter. They have the black bandit-mask that is typical for most shrikes.

Contrast the above hawk-like photo of the bird with the fragile cuteness captured in the photo below: . Brown Shrike

You’d think they are entirely different birds with different personalities! I guess that’s the beauty in photographing wild things. You come to see contrasts and multitudes within one tiny creature.
