Shrike-thrush, Shrike-thrush, Shrike-thrush! It’s a tongue twister all right. We ran across some interesting bird names in Australia like Currawong, Frogmouth, Gerygone, but none were quite the mouthful that Shrike-thrush is. The Shrike-thrush is a small bird that we kept encountering everywhere we went. It’s kind of a drab gray (“grey” in Australia) but very endearing.
