A Wryneck Sitting on a Tree

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Iynx torquilla, the Cuckoo’s-mate or Snake-bird, is fairly common in England, and extends thence to Japan, Kordofan, and Senegal. The Wryneck may be distinguished from the typical Woodpeckers by their soft tails without spiny shafts, and naked nostrils with a partial covering. The plumage shews a particular mixture of black , brown, grey, and white, somewhat similar to the Nightjar.” A. H. Evans, 1900
