Camera-Critters #52: Brown Shrike (紅尾伯勞)


Brown Shrike, Lanius cristatus, is a migratory bird about 18 cm in size.  It migrates from Northern Asia toward south at the end of summer and early fall.  By the end of October, most of them that arrive at Taiwan move further south.  Some will stay and winter here.  Those that stayed will start to migrate back to the North in April or May.  I photographed this little thing yesterday, April 3 at Taan Park in Taipei.

You did a good job! The photo is very nice!
Thanks for your visit to my sparrows. You are right we shouldn't mess with nature. I think all creatures are needed and our vegetation depends on these creatures. Have a great week!

I got some Shrike photos this past Fall. They were a first for me, as I had never seen a Shrike before. My photos, however, come nowhere close to comparing to this spectacular shot!
