Lesser Grey Shrikes as early autumn migratory birds

The last weeks have been here extremely hot, now, ending of August returns life in the actions of the bird world and the observer.


The Demoissele cranes are flying again over the island to the South; some groups make a stopover on the island.


I looked around in the last August week very early on the day somewhat in the traditional Bird Areas and found some Birds in Mandria.


A greater number of Lesser Grey Shrike and Red-backed Shrike have settled on their hike there, sit on power lines, trees and bushes to hunt and rest.

Relatively many juvenile Lesser Grey Shrike are represented in the constrictor group, one might almost think a kindergarten is on the way...

Also one Great Reed Warbler and an Eastern Olivaceus Warbler was in the same Tree together with a lot Sparrows.


I have the force three times, each in the early morning from sunrise on t and have made them some pictures and a video.

I have adjusted the RAW video in 4 K at YouTube. 


In the YouTube settings you can choose according to the quality to play 2160 p, 1440 p, or 1080 p, automatically.  


Have fun with the look at the Birds
