CHIN'S NATURE CORNER ~ PHOTO GALLERY ~ SOME COMMON BIRDS
Brown Shrike (Lanius cristatus): This bird is about the size of a sparrow, but
unlike the sparrow which feeds mostly on grass seeds, the Brown Shrike feeds on live insects.
Perched on fences, wires or bare branches, it surveys the ground for
prey. It is the most common of several species of shrike, and may be seen in open country,
plantations and gardens. This species occurs throughout east
Asia, the Philippines to New Guinea.
