Howdy All,

Probably a bird I should have seen a lot of, but it was a first for me. When I was at the National Zoo & Aquarium today I was watching a Black Faced Cuckoo Shrike. I have a vague feeling I might have seen one before, but it certainly isn't something I usually see about. Unfortunately I get little chance to travel and look for things, but I thought I would mention it in case it were of interest to anyone? I've never observed one there in previous visits. It was a lot bigger than I expected!!

Just in case anyone is interested, it was right near the entrance in a tree above the Marmosets. A nice addition to the things I viewed at the zoo, including the adorable baby Ring tailed Lemurs that have only recently been on public display.
