SOLD!!! Beautiful print of a red backed shrike bird in a gilded wooden frame. This is a reproduced print by Morris of the Red Backed Shrike from "History of British Birds", large edition, 1892. I am not sure how old the actual print is but the frame is very old. This piece would look lovely in any home. The gilded frame does have a few nicks in the wood, but in my opinion it just adds to the old world character and charm of the piece.
The Long-tailed Shrike or Rufous-backed Shrike (Lanius schach) is a member of the bird family Laniidae, the shrikes. They are found widely distributed across Asia and there are variations in plumage across the range. It is found mainly in scrub and open habitats. by manuela
