Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Compact shrike of forest edges and openings. Quite flashy and colorful, with a brick-red back, dark gray crown, and broad black mask. Long-tailed Shrike and Tiger Shrike can be similarly colored, but the former is much larger with a noticeably longer tail, and the latter has a paler gray crown and prominent dark barring. Burmese Shrike’s song is quite musical, consisting of varied musical notes and noisy chatters.
