Southern Grey Shrike (Morocco)

December 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Another confusing bird at a roadside stop as we returned to the airport on the final afternoon. This bird seemed happy not to move perches even as I got out of the car, and it even waited for me to pop the converter on, and we left it in the same place as we found it such was its indifference. Great great birds, a pleasure. 

The next images are of different birds, but the same tactic - drive along a road until you find a bird on a bush or otherwise pleasing perch. Most birds were probably on the overhead wires, so we probably missed out most of them. However the species does so well in Morocco that they're very frequently encountered, and if you don't like the set-up, or don't fancy your chances, you just move on to the next one.
