The Tiger Shrike

I wouldn't have known that a bird was in the bush if I hadn't heard a soft gentle chirping as the bird moved around feeding on insects. Once my eyes got accustomed to the light and the tangled mass of branches, I picked out the shape of a bird. I found a juvenile Tiger Shrike. This is a shy and often solitary bird that is usually inconspicuous.This bird led me on a wild goose chase but it did give me several decent shots.
