1. Bird(Common Noun-Common &/or Masculine) Shrikes are passerine birds of the family Laniidae. The family is composed of thirty-one species in three genera. The family name, and that of the largest genus, Lanius, is derived from the Latin word for 'butcher', and some shrikes are also known as 'butcher birds' because of their feeding habits. They are fairly closely related to the bush-shrike family Malaconotidae. বুলবুলি চৰাইৰ সমান ডাঙৰ এবিধ চৰাই৷
