Burmese Shrike

My wifey spotted an uncommon Shrike a few days ago.
This was at our back yard garden here in Klang.

I thought it was a migratory Brown Shrike or the Tiger Shrike which drops by from East Asia and getting away from the coming winter months. Upon examining the picture taken, we realised it to be the Burmese Shrike which on record, do not usually hang around that far south!

The distinguished 'rattling' call and the long tail are her trademark.

A Beauty.
