Shrike at Colony Farm Regional Park

益言堂

头次听说(英文名)并且拍摄到这种威猛小鸟:Great Grey Shrike – 中文: 伯劳
在BC省高贵林 的Colony Farm Regional Park

本来不知道这是什么鸟,只是远远的看着像一只从来没有见过的品种,就随手扫了一张。
后来碰到一位拍鸟同好,她提起该公园出现的各类鸟儿、如数家珍,还说:”有时候能看到Shrike,它们会把抓到的猎物挂在树枝上“
于是回家放大一看,这不就是吗?那眼边的一条黑带(有网文说是“黑色过眼纹”)极其抢眼,有点戴墨镜的江湖武功高手的意思。

“The great grey shrike (Lanius excubitor), known as the northern shrike in North America, is a large songbird species in the shrike family (Laniidae)”

“The scientific name of the great grey shrike literally means “sentinel butcher”: Lanius is the Latin term for a butcher, while excubitor is Latin for a watchman or sentinel.[5] This refers to the birds’ two most conspicuous behaviours – storing food animals by impaling them on thorns, and using exposed tree-tops or poles to watch the surrounding area for possible prey.”
