Grey shrike

I know the Great grey shrike as a white dot on a telephone wire in a snowy landscape. Here I met it in a sunbaked valley on an island off the northwest coast of Africa, where it chased down a huge grasshopper and then returned to its cactus perch. The local subspecies koenigi will belong to the Southern grey shrike if the species is divided, which is being discussed.
