    Time to share something other than shorebirds. I found it difficult trying to really bring out his eye. Difficult bird for me to expose

    Looks like you have a fine image of a Loggerhead Shrike. Sometimes called a Butcher Bird too.

    Thanks for the IF andy! Glad you like it
  4. Nice one, Jonathan. You must enjoy a challenge. Those black on white critters give me fits, too.

    A very cool bird to shoot. They will pin bugs, small lizards, etc on thorns or barb wire in their home area. Something to look for. Take your own bug next trip. With that black/white thing going on they can be a bugger to shoot in harsh light. Your photo is very well done.

    Yes they are tough to shoot. You have to get the sun shine right on the side of face.
    Not easy

    Good shot
  7. Very nice Jonathan. I can't get close to any of them and the ones that are out of range are sitting on wires anyway. Well done.
