Copsychus Wagler, 1827
Systema Avium Gracula p.306
The magpie-robins or shamas (from shama, Hindi for C. malabaricus) are medium-sized insectivorous birds (some also eat berries and other fruit) in the genera Copsychus and Trichixos. They were formerly in the thrush family Turdidae, but are more often now treated as part of the Old World flycatcher Muscicapidae.
These are African and Asian garden and forest dwelling species.
