The photo, which taken from car window,
belongs to a juvenile of a carnivorous passerine bird Lanius collurio Linnaeus, 1758 – Kızılsırtlı Örümcekkuşu [TR], Red-Backed Shrike [EN]. Another juvenile of L. collurio was previously posted.
It is a migratory species, wintering in Africa. It breeds in Turkiye and most parts of Europe. Its lenght is 17-18 cm. This bird eats insects, small vertebrates e.g. lizards, voles, small birds. Like other Lanius Linnaeus, 1758 species, L. collurio impales preys upon a sharp point, such as a thorn or the barbs of barbed wire. It can eat easily after killing them.
This bird is one of seven species of the family Laniidae in Turkiye. Other six species;
** Lanius isabellinus – Kızılkuyruklu Örümcekkuşu (Isabelline Shrike),
** Lanius schach – Uzunkuyruklu Örümcekkuşu (Long-Tailed Shrike),
** Lanius minor – Karaalınlı Örümekkuşu (Lesser Grey Shrike) (flying and roosting),
** Lanius excubitor – Büyük Örümcekkuşu (Great Grey Shrike),
** Lanius senator – Kızılbaşlı Örümcekkuşu (Woodchat Shrike),
** Lanius nubicus – Maskeli Örümcekkuşu (Masked Shrike).

Well, I’d like to celebrate Ramadan holiday (Ramazan Bayramı) of all muslims.
Bayramınız kutlu olsun

Hi Ahmet,
This is another interesting posting of yours, with exceptional details and clarity.
Very well presented Red-Backed Shrike, a bird that I wish I’ll see one day. TFS
Best wishes for Ramadan holiday, Mario

Hello Ahmet,
Nicely composed shot of this interesting bird.
I'd never of guessed it was a carnivore,let alone one with such a ruthless method of killing its prey.
Fascinating subject.
Very interesting post.

Hi Ahmet, a wonderful image here of this lovely bird. Superb background that compliments the bird so well. The green stem adds a nice element without causing any distraction. Good detail on the bird. The framing and the border you've added is very attractive also. Good work, thanks.

Hi Ahmet,

I apologise for my long absence. The hectic pace of life leaves one little time for relaxation and hobbies.

This is a super picture. I like it very much. The composition with the green twig to the left is so nice. It is so good, I wish it was mine. Very well done.
