Tiger Shrike

Tiger Shrike by Ck Leong


I find the Tiger Shrike Lanius tigrinus to be a lot more noisy at the end of the day than at other times.  This is when you can hear its loud chattering, perhaps advertising its claim to the territory.  On all the occasions that I have seen this bird, it has been solitary and has a preference for the lower canopy and shrubs.  A scarce winter visitor.
