Kızıl sırtlı örümcek kuşu (Lanius collurio), örümcek kuşugiller (Laniidae) familyasından yüksek çayırların, fundalıkların ve çalılık arazilerin küçük, güzel ve kahverengi sırtlı örümcek kuşu türü.

Daha çok göze çarpmayacak şekilde çalılıkların yanlarında, çitlerin ya da alçak parmaklık tellerinin üzerinde oturur. Gagası oldukça kalın, başı yuvarlak, kanat uçları ve kuyruğu uzundur. Erkeği göze çarpıcıdır, başı mavi-gri, maskesi koyu siyah, sırtı pas kızılı-kahverengi, kuyruk sokumu gri, kuyruğu siyah ve yanları beyaz, alt tarafı pembedir. Dişisi daha kahverengidir, başı mat gri-kahverengi, yanak lekesi koyu, alt tarafı rimsidir ve çok ince yarımay şeklinde kahverengi çizgiler vardır. Kuyruğu koyu kahverengidir. Gencinin üst tarafı kahverengi ve koyu renk çizgili -diğerlerinden biraz daha fazla çizgilidir-, skapular tüyleri sırtı gibi (daha gri olan genç kızıl başlı örümcek kuşunda olduğu gibi daha beyaz değil), alt tarafı beyazımsı ve gri çizgili, kuyruğu koyu renkten pas kızılı-kahverengiye kadar değişir. Sesi sert tonlu bir ‘çii’; ötüşü zayıf, şakımalı ve gıcırtılı bir gevezelikten ibarettir.





The Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio) is a carnivorous passerine bird and member of the shrike family Laniidae.

This bird breeds in most of Europe and western Asia and winters in tropical Africa. Its range is contracting, and it is now probably extinct in Great Britain as a breeding bird, although it is frequent on migration. It is named as a protected bird in Britain under a Biodiversity Action Plan; its decline is due to overuse of pesticides and scrub clearance due to human overpopulation. It breeds in open cultivated country with hawthorn and dog rose.

This 16-18 cm long migratory bird eats large insects, small birds, voles and lizards. Like other shrikes it hunts from prominent perches, and impales corpses on thorns or barbed wire as a "larder

Hi Cahit,

You captured this bird in my favorite pose as he looks behind him. This Red-backed Shrike is beautiful and I would love to see one some day. Excellent colors and immaculate details of the face, plummage and wings. I love how the eye sparkles through the black line. Every feather is in place and he/she is a beauty. Perfect background and composition.

merhaba Cahit bey,
trakuşta olduğu gibi daha çok gençleri görüntüleniyor. ama ben erginlerini sadece desenleriyle daha çok seviyorum. renkleri harika olmuş. açısı, zamanlaması ve netliği de öyle. hele göz teması ve sade arkafonu pek bir güzel. elinize sağlık, selamlar.

Hello Cahit,
This is a stunningly beautiful capture of this lovely bird. The sharpness of the image along with rich colours makes this a truly outstanding nature picture. The plain BG supports the main subject with great strength. The aesthetic side of it is also of a very high order.
Well done and TFS.
