I came to know about this bird from a wildlife magazine this year only. Though it seems to be a local bird, but Brown Shrike is an migratory bird. It may be of different types, but the sizes are more or less same.
I snapped it at Satragachi Jheel, Howrah on my this years photo shoot. It was staring at the garbage beside the lake for its food. It gave me a good pose and time also.
