Two Brown Shrikes

9th October 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

Birds were few and far in between, only the Shrikes provided us with some action. Shot the first one thinking that she was a Tiger Shrike. Turned out to be a juvenile Brown Shrike.




An adult male Brown Shrike ( Lanius lucionensis ) was in the same area as the juvenile. The scaley patterns on the body become less conspicuous as they mature.

  1. Lovely shots Madi, especially the first one in that bright light but also the later males. the fact that the scaley appearance becomes less obvious with ageing is a very interesting point.
