Grey-Headed Bushshrike Video (aka The Ghost Bird)

The Story:

I saw this Grey-Headed Bushshrike one day through my kitchen window;it is the one and only time I have seen this bird in my area.

It is a striking bird, with beautiful, bold colours. It has a grey head and yellow eyes.  It is olive green along its back.
It is also known as the Ghost Bird due to its mournful, drawn-out (and slightly eerie) call.
