Woodshrike

The Common Woodshrike (Tephrodornis pondicerianus) is a species of bird found in Asia. It has been placed in the cuckoshrike (Campephagidae) and helmetshrike (Prionopidae) families in the past and is now considered a member of the family Tephrodornithidae. It is small and ashy brown with a dark cheek patch and a broad white brow. It is found across Asia mainly in the thin forest and scrub habitats. A form found in Sri Lanka which was treated as a subspecies is sometimes considered a separate species, the Sri Lanka Woodshrike (T. affinis).[wiki]
