Red-backed Shrike

One of the more beautiful, yet very shy small bird species. A male and female, photographed about 100m apart, both alone.

The male was less cautious so I could get a little bit closer than the next photo.

As you can see, not a very large bird, sitting on a straw like that. For enhanced difficulty between me and the bird a lot of marshland that coul potentially have vipers in it. Not something I wanted to step upon in normal walking shoes.
