Corvinella Yellow-billed Shrike Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves Order: Passeriformes Family: Laniidae Genus: Corvinella
Corvinella shrikes are birds of open savanna habitats typically seen perched upright on a prominent treetop perch or telephone wires. They sally out for prey, sometimes taken in flight, but mainly from the ground. These species primarily take large insects, but will also take small birds, reptiles and mammals.
The sexes of both species are similar, but distinguishable.
