As everyone knows, it's a "bifcus"...

Once upon a time there was an ornithologist working on Cuckoo-shrikes
 as a Family and he called them all Graybirds.
I assume he was American. Only problem, he found a Black Graybird somewhere, no grey on it. Not a bad name generally though. Or what is wrong with the generic Coracina? Easier to pronounce than Gerygone. Meanwhile, I have known the BFCS as Bifcus since I was twelve.
