Red-Backed Shrike

Red-Backed Shrike is probably one of the most amazing passerines in our birdwatching summer walks trough the cantabrian campaign.

Summer visitor and extremely territorial, is not difficult to find them in open fields and also in low altitude mountains, most of the times perched on branches trying to catch big insects and even small mouses. To spear some of their preys on bush thorns is a typical behaviour of this beautiful bird.
