Grey Butcherbird

Okay, I cheated a little by using the search engine;
there was one match for the Triller and one for the Grey Butcherbird
- mispelt as "Collard Crow Shrike".  "Crow Shrike" produced more hits,
including currawongs, but these aren't "collared".  One match was the
1913 Webster's Dictionary, which probably explains the other bizarre
common names!

                           I came, I saw, I ticked.
