Southern, Northern or Uhehe Fiscal

Lanius [collaris, humeralis or marwitzi] (= Lanius collaris) Linnaeus, 1766

The southern fiscal, common fiscal or fiscal shrike is a member of the shrike family found through most of Sub-Saharan Africa. It is also sometimes named jackie hangman or butcher bird due to its habit of impaling its prey on acacia thorns to store the food for later consumption. It was previously lumped together with the northern fiscal. Together they were known as the common fiscal. Source: Wikipedia
