21. Grey Cuckoo Shrike
NFA bird Podcast: I am Johnnie Kamugisha. The bird for today is a Grey Cuckoo shrike
Grey Cuckooshrike are are small to medium-sized arboreal passerine bird species, generally long and slender.
They are predominantly greyish although the wings are slightly darker with blackish loses and chin, conspicuous large dark eyes with a pale eye-ring.
Cuckooshrikes are closely related neither to the Cuckoos nor to the Shrikes;
The name probably comes from the grey colour of many of the Cuckooshrikes.
Some of the species bear a superficial resemblance to Cuckoos, and have a similar undulating flight.
Grey Cuckooshrikes are forest dwellers and are 22 cm long, can be found singly, in pairs, and in small family groups.
Grey Cuckooshrikes are mainly insectivorous, but can eat hairy caterpillars as well.
They may eat small vertebrates, fruit, seeds and other plant material.
Grey Cuckooshrikes are territorial and maintain these territories year round.
They are believed to be monogamous, with the pair bonding throughout the year.
Grey Cuckooshrikes lay about four eggs in a cup like nest in a tree; with an incubation of about two weeks.
They can be found in forests like Bwindi, Echuya among others.
The bird for today is a Grey Cuckooshrike and am Johnnie Kamugisha.
