Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Gray-bodied, black-masked bandit of open areas, both rural and suburban. Power lines and tops of bushes offer the perfect perches for shrikes to spot their prey. Carnivorous habits make shrikes unique among passerines. In flight, watch for white patches in the wings. Feeds on large insects, rodents and small birds. About the size of a robin.
