Mr. Anonymous,

very descriptive and I wonder who you are?

you seem to know quite fair bit about Tropical birds, hmmm!

Thanks for dropping by and I welcome constructive pointers and comments very much.

Mr. Anonymous,

Definitely not a tiger shrike, I have photographed a tiger shrike before and they look like this http://wai-yien.blogspot.com/2009/02/tiger-shrike-preying-on-bug.html

Yen, This is indeed a tiger shrike. Mr. Anonymous is right. The one to photograph earlier is a juv of the tiger shrike.
