Lanius excubitor – Διπλοκεφαλάς – Great Grey Shrike

This bad quality photo, is my first observation – and the reason i’m publishing it – of a Great Grey Shrike, a rare visitor in southern Greece. This individual is probably the algeriensis subspecies. Its the second consecutive year that this species appears at Schinias national park. Could be the same individual, which found appropriate habitat for wintering.

    Notice the non-existence of white supercilium.
