Bull-headed Shrike -- Interesting Little Bird

Perched on a Wire

 

 

Not the preferred location for a wildlife image but, it had to be done.

This bird was something, I had never noticed in Kin Town before.

So, I shot it.

The identification wouldn't be made with any books I have.

Luckily, Shawn Miller came through with the nomenclature and, a Latin name, too.

The scientific crowd would call them Lanius bucephalus.

The bird likes to catch bugs, frogs, small mammals and, even other birds.

And, impale them on barbed wire or, a thorn, for eating !
