Morning Dog Walk: A Fledgling Woodchat Shrike

Facebooktwittermail

I take a camera along on my Dog Walks to bring you some of the sightings that I see on my morning walks, these photos are rarely going to be great quality as its hard enough keeping an energetic Dog entertained and get close enough to anything. They also help me identify where species are so that I can plan to return.

A few days ago I posted a similar blog about a Young Woodchat Shrike, this morning I spotted an even younger one.

This Woodchat Shrike still has it’s fledgling fluffy feathers that have started to give way to its new plumage. You can see the tail feathers have already gain their colour but the back and head still very fluffy.

This morning I was also surrounded by many Golden Orioles, adults and young. Of course, none of them were willing to break cover for long enough to get a shot, but the amount of bird life around the river currently will make tomorrow’s Nature Photography Walk interesting!
