Part of the BM hunter epic tame quest, a video guide for which can be found here:
These drop off the drywind bonepickers in Gorgrond.
You need to talk to Gara first, show her the berries before it will drop. I thought I'd gather up the stuff and THEN talk to her...was a mistake, ended up sitting there for good chunk of the day wondering why it wasn't dropping. Don't do that, not fun. ;)
I got the effigy on first try. I believe that the drop rate reflected in this entry is actually an inaccurate representation considering that it accounts for all classes looting the bonepicker. Kill the mob as a beastmaster hunter and it's pretty quick.
Make sure you loot the

I've been killing the Bonepickers and the Grunts and have not had this drop for me yet. I'm on my second day. I am in BM and I have the Shadowberries in my bag. I did talk to Gara yesterday and gave him one of the Shadowberries as well and still have one in my bags. I'm not understanding why this is not dropping for me.

Today I went through the step of showing the Shadowberry to Gara, then my battleground queue popped and I took it. After coming out of the BG, I was killing Drywind Bonepickers with no luck getting the drop. I went back and got Shadowberries again and showed to Gara again, and the effigy then dropped on my first kill. I'm thinking there may be some kind of invisible "buff" you get after interacting with Gara, that perhaps going in/out of the BG cleared. Beware!
