Red-Backed Shrike - Lanius collurio - Kızıl Sırtlı Örümcekkuşu

Red-backed shrikes are slightly larger, but slimmer, than house sparrows. The male is unmistakable with a bluish-grey head, black mask, bright chestnut back and thick hooked black bill. Shrikes like to perch prominently on the tops of bushes, fence posts and telephone wires, where they have a good view of potential prey. Items caught are then taken to a larder where they are impaled on a thorn or wedged in a fork.

Merhaba Koray, guzel bir kompozisyon. Kusun biraz focus disi kalmasina ragmen renkleriyle kendine baktiran bir fotograf.
Eline saglik.
