Piping up as a slight side issue to the Piping Shrike saga I have a mild
interest in vernacular names of birds.

I can find no reference in the literature to Piping-Shrike other than
Wikipedia and other associated Google articles to do with the SA flag.

However I can find references to Piping Crow-Shrike as a vernacular name for
Black-backed Magpie. White-backed Magpie is listed as Piper, or White-backed
Crow-Shrike. Other Crow-Shrikes are Pied (Pied Currawong), Sooty (Black
Currawong), Black-

winged, Grey, Brown & Leaden (Grey Currawong), , Hill (Clinking Currawong),
Black-throated (Pied Butcherbird), Collared (Grey Butcherbird) .

Cheers John
