Great Grey Shrikes in the Hungarian Puszta

Here is the time to observe the Great Grey Shrikes, becouse in the last few weeks we saw more and more birds. Sometimes we can observe 2 or 3 Shrikes in a day. These birds arrived from northern Europe and will spend the winter here in Hungary. Usually seek for prey on the top of the threes, feed on rodents and store the food on a spike or a branch (like in the picture).
