Long tailed shrike-Himalayas

The exclamation marks indicate that I have heard this bird singing for the first time…. the picture below was taken by me yesterday of this beautiful bird, perched on a shrub overlooking the Alaknanda river, near the Mana village in the Himalayas in India. It was singing a beautiful song, but the moment I got out of the vehicle to record the song and to take a better picture of the bird, it flew away….



It is a beautiful bird, and it’s only natural that i saw it in the place called the “land of the Gods”.
