BORNEAN BRISTLEHEAD (Pityriasis gymnocephala): SPECIES ACCOUNTS
GRAY BUTCHERBIRD (Cracticus torquatus): SPECIES ACCOUNTS

Magpie-shrikes are found in Australia and New Guinea, along with one species in Borneo.


Their diet consists of various small vertebrates and invertebrates (animals with backbones and without backbones), such as insects, grubs, and worms. Magpie-shrikes also eat eggs, nestlings (young birds unable to leave the nest), and berries.


There is little significance between people and magpie-shrikes other than with Australian magpies, which are known for their aggressiveness and caroling songs.


One species of magpie-shrike, the Bornean bristlehead, is listed as Near Threatened, in danger of becoming threatened with extinction.
