What's the birdy?



I don't have a lot of blogging time today, what with zipping between London and Cambridge every day this weekend. In the same vein as Darren's 'guess the tetrapod' teaser posts at Tetrapod Zoology, I give you a bird whose identity remains secret. Can you guess what it is? Enter your guess in the comments if you have any idea what it might be, even if you don't, just have a guess (I'm turning into the compulsive guessing woman on Catherine Tate). No prizes for the correct guess, just the glory of being correct. No clues either, well, just one, it's a bird.

it eats nuts... that's what the big robust beaks says to me (but i could be wrong)

no clue on what type of bird though

Sorry, according to Wikipedia (everybody's favourite source), this bird is mostly insectivorous, eating bloody huge insects though, might I add.

Is it, per chance, the remarkable Pityriasis gymnocephala, aka Bornean bristle-head, Bald-headed wood shrike, Bristled shrike, etc.? Of course it is, me not silly!
