It looks to me like the Bull-headed Shrike photo labeled as a female is actually a male. Note the black face mask and the white patch at the base of the primaries.

Good birding, Pete Dunten

Thanks Pete, I see what you mean.

I've searched the Gallery and wonder if you (or anyone) could comment on the possibility that this might be a female?
