Masktörnskata

  Lanius nubicus
Asprokremmos Dam, Cyprus - 2 april 2017

Male of Masked Shrike perched.
Among the Lanius shrikes, the Masked Shrike occupies a special place in my heart. Always so neat and elegant, and there is a far more exotic air around this species compared to Woodchat and Grey Shrikes etc. On this occasion I got the best photo opportunity ever on my favorite bird.
