My young grandson was intrigued by my feeding this fiscal shrike by hand, and that it would perch on my knee and sing. A few months later I recorded this as a video clip to send him, and added some text (which if possible should be excised). I only recently came across your IBC website, and have now decided register, and to forward the same clip to you. Other viewers might find it interesting. James Butler.
