Default Red-backed Shrike

Another lifer for me Only managed to see the female and a juvenile but they all count. Wish I could get better backgrounds but you have to take what you're given sometimes. C&C welcome, exif intact.

Congrats on yet another lifer, with your number of ticks it must get harder and harder.

Great looking bird and the photos are all good, I dont find the background too much of a problem. The male's the really handsome one of course.
