Size: 19 cm
Small but stocky, warm brown shrike with powerful bill. Itís can be distinguished from the Rufuos ĖTailed by large head and neck, larger bill (pale in female), con-colorous, darker brown under parts and more graduated tail. It has a warm rufous-brown from crown to tail. It has a black eye mask (in male only), deep buff below with whiter cheeks and throat. Itís also has a more prominent white supercilia.
Noisy. Grating call similar to Rufous-tailed and chattering song.
Inhabits forest edges, thick scrub and open woodland. It is similar to Rufous-tailed in habits but also hunts within bushes. It can be very territorial and quite tame. Sometimes feeds after dark.
A common winter visitor throughout the island.
