June 24, 2017 – Northern White-crowned Shrike or White-rumped Shrike (Eurocephalus ruppelli)

These shrikes are found in dry thornbush and open woodlands of eastern Africa, in parts of South Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Somalia. They eat mostly insects, including beetles, grasshoppers, and butterflies. Little is known about their breeding habits, though their nests are probably built from grasses and spider webs and their breeding season varies throughout their range.
