Long Valley

I think this is an injured bird. Something wrong with its lower beak.
The whole face is black and I havn't seen bird like this in HK. Maybe it's a juvenile bird of some kind. I searched the internet and found it might be a black shrike.
Anyone knows its exact name?

Do you mean dusky shrike?

This is a dusky shrike, a variant dark morph of long-tailed shrike.  This bird is injured but looks like it is in good health.

Thanks a lot Jim and Dylan.

I am wondering how it take food with such an injured beak?

I believe the same Dusky Shrike still in LV. It looks still healthy!

Glad to see this injured Shrike still alive and healthy after 3 months time!

Good to see it is still on the go- I think it needs a name and Gonzo seems appropriate.
