Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small black, white, and gray shrike. The sexes are similar, but females can show a small chestnut patch on the flanks. Note the small white mark in the wing and the white outer tail, which can be conspicuous in flight. Found in dry savanna and grassland. Perches up conspicuously, often in pairs. Very similar to Somali Fiscal, but has only a single white patch at the center of the wing. The repetitive vocalizations include rasping and liquid notes, often delivered in a rising pattern.
