Iberian/Southern Grey Shrike

Canvas Prints are also available, please Contact Me for information and pricing

The Iberian (or Southern) Grey Shrike is similar to the Great Grey Shrike, but is a different sub-species. Known as the “Butcher Bird”, the Shrike catches it’s food of insects and Lizards then hangs them on barbed wire fences or other spiked objects to store them as if in a larder.

They are very common here in the hills of the Algarve as are the other Shrike found here, the more colourful Woodchat Shrike.
