Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump songbird with notably thick bill. In eastern Australia, gray above and quite orange below, with a pinkish-brown bill. In northern and northwestern Australia, paler gray above, gray with faint streaks below, with black bill. Found in denser habitats than larger Gray Shrikethrush, including mangroves and rainforests. Forages in mid-story, noisily ripping off bark as it forages. Rich, melodious song reminiscent of Gray Shrikethrush but usually ends in three low notes instead of rising whip-crack.
