Regarding the upper photos: two magpie shrikes were sitting in the bush when two more flew in; the first two began to display while the others sat passively. The display was brief and all four then flew off (Tarangire, 1-97). The 2nd row photo was taken in Tarangire (3-15), courtesy of Stuart Webb. The left 4th row bird was seen in Ruaha (7-02). The bird sitting on a nest in a small acacia tree about 2 m. above ground was at Pofu campsite in the Serengeti (6-11). The other photos were taken in Tarangire.
