Taxonomic Notes :The form phoenicuroides is now treated as a full species: Red-tailed Shrike Lanius phoenicuroides. Following this separation, images have been relabelled where the identification was clear. However, due to the similarity of females and immatures of both species, it may be that some of the images retained here are in fact of female or immature L. phoenicuroides.
