Southern Grey Shrike

Lanius meridionalis Temminck, 1820

The Southern Grey Shrike, Lanius meridionalis, is a member of the shrike family. The plumage is generally similar to Great Grey Shrike apart from the differences noted above. It is closely related to the Great Grey Shrike, Lanius excubitor, with which it used to be considered conspecific; where they co-occur, they do not interbreed and are separated by choice of habitat.
