Gray-backed Shrike
The Grey-backed Shrike (Lanius tephronotus) is a species of bird in the Laniidae family. It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Among the shrikes, they breed at the highest altitude. They are partial migrants, with some populations moving south in winter. They breed in summer from late May to early July. The nest is built in a bush and about 3 to 5 eggs are laid. The eggs are incubated by the female alone and incubation is begun even before the complete clutch is laid. The chicks hatch after 15–18 days and are taken care of by both the parents until the fledge after about two weeks.

OSLO BIRDER: Red-backed Shrikes
adult male Red-backed Shrike (tornskate) - bird of the weekend Another weekend at the cabin in Hulvik gave me the chance for a couple of early morning visits to Kurefjorden. My visits in July were just after Little and Black Terns had been found there and afterwards there has been a Pectoral Sandpiper (alaskasnipe) so I was hoping (and feeling I was due) to find something good.

Pie-grièche écorcheur Lanius collurio - Red-backed Shrike | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
The red-backed shrike is a very beautiful bird, with head and neck gray, the underside of the body pinkish white. The back is brownish red, wide black band across the forehead above the eyes. The female is a reddish-brown above, a dirty white underneath, with waves darkest on the breast and flanks. Young birds resemble females, but they also have waves on the back. The shrike has a tail long enough that it stirred often and more quickly when danger is more pressing.

Denim and Tweed: Shrikes take their cues from the competition
Over evolutionary time, the easiest way to deal with a competitor is to do something different - if your competitor eats big seeds, say, it may be easier to start eating small seeds than to fight for the big ones. This idea goes all back to the Origin, wherein Darwin proposed that competition drives evolutionary diversification, with living things dividing up available resources into ever-finer slices as they scramble for shares:Lighten any check, mitigate the destruction [of offspring] ever so little, and the number of the species will almost instantaneously increase to any amount.
