Another Monday, another post about birds!
So, this week I met a few bird species, but the most memorable and impressive one for me was a red-backed shrike. I've heard a lot of these birds, but I never thought I would be able to meet them so close to my house!
It seems that when people (including me ) hear the name 'red-backed shrike' they usually think of a bird like on the picture below. But this is a male. Female and young birds look different.
So when I met these big fluffy screeching sparrow-like creatures, I couldn't understand what species I found that time. I could only say that they looked absolutely adorable, they weren't scared
