The open grasslands of the Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the best places to observe and photograph the Grey-backed Shrike in NE India. During all our safaris, we saw this beautiful bird playing hide and seek with us in the grasslands. However, we were pleasantly surprised to seethis 25cm bird allow our jeep come less than 15 feet of it resulting in some frame filling compositions.
As we have said earlier, we strongly believe in using a vehicle as a hide for bird photography and this time too it paid rich dividends. Here are a series of images taken with the D300, 300mm f2.8 lens mounted with the 2x TC.
