He is so like our cuckoo shrike here in Australia. Nice shots.

Great photos. I am always amazed at the small branches the birds cling to.

Interesting bird, the shrike. Not my favorite in terms of feeding habits.

P.S. To fit your header picture on my screen, Joo, I have to reduce it 75%; the of course everything else below it is too small. Is it just the way I am viewing it?

That little bird is like an extension of the branch! Very cool how he/she can balance!
