- Northern White-crowned Shrike or White-rumped Shrike, Eurocephalus rueppelli
- Southern White-crowned Shrike or White-crowned Shrike, Eurocephalus anguitimens
Eurocephalus shrikes are birds of savanna and open woodland habitats, typically seen perched upright on a prominent thornbush perch. These species primarily take large insects, but will occasionally eat fruit which has fallen to the ground.
The male and female are similar in plumage in both species but are distinguishable from immature birds.
