On 7th February 2019 I saw a number of Brown Shrikes (Lanius cristatus) that were moulting. This was at an extensive Rice Growing region that provided wetlands at Ulu Dedap, Perak. Managed to get near this one for images (above). Both tail and wing moult.
On 29th April 2019, at a secondary growth around the city fringe, there were still quite a number of Brown Shrikes, like this adult female above.
On 1st October 2019 at a semi-urban part of the city, Brown Shrikes have descended upon the city and made their presence very palpable this last week as they jostle (verbally) for territorial space. An adult female, possibly L. c. cristatus, that was atypical in allowing me to get within minimum focusing distance and tolerated my presence (above).
