Shrike Meditation by meihua Shrike Meditation by meihua
We went to 衛武營 and spent a lot of time there walking around and checking out the birds. Here is a 紅尾伯勞 (Brown shrike), female. She was just sittin' on a branch lookin' pretty. Wasn't even fazed by our presence. We got really close!

Weiwuying Park, Kaohsiung, Taiwan
