Peter Lansley mentioned whether the shriketits should be split.

I have no doubt about it. If you play the call of an Eastern
Shriketit to a Western Shriketit it takes no notice.

I spoke to Leo Joseph quite a few years ago. He thought it was likely
they were different, but he doubted whether anyone would do the work
due to the lack of available DNA for Northern Shriketit. George Swann
can find them in the Kimberley over quite a wide area, but otherwise
they can be difficult to track down as they rarely call.

I once had a Western Shriketit imitating a Western Yellow Robin at
Dryandra. Do the Eastern or Northern mimic?
