yavrular annelerini beklerken
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,

This trio of Shrikes is adorable. They look so cute standing on the branch. Apparently they see something interesting. Wonderful colors and details - the faces are marvelous. A beautiful setting and composition.

Merhaba Cahit

nice capture and position of the birds, I like the colors and the strong light of the day that worked well here.
I like also the composition with the tiny flowers in the downside of the image ..

Hallo Cahit
What a lovely threesome. The two in the front looks as if they are standing guard; especially the one in the middle is as rigid as a pole. I really like the sight of these birds with their match-stick Pinnochio legs and their slender and long necks. The long tailpiece of their plumage is also very eye-catching, and one cannot miss the big round black polka dot eyes. A lovely composition and presentation with lots of details to appreciate. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
Anna
