Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A gray-brown bushshrike with rufous wings, a bold pale eyebrow, and a diagnostic all-black crown; most races have a distinctive gray belly. Pairs occasionally join mixed-species flocks and skulk in a variety of scrub, tangled thickets, and open woodland, foraging for insects on the ground or in the lower levels of vegetation. The species sings a wonderful melodious up-and-down whistled “whee-cheee-chooo-cheeera” and a variety of other whistles and grating sounds.
