The Ethiopian boubou (Laniarius aethiopicus), a fairly large member of the bushshrike family, is named for its calls like bou, hou or boubou. It is found in Eritrea, Ethiopia, northwest Somalia, and northern Kenya. Its natural habitat is moist savanna. The Ethiopian boubou's other common name, the bell shrike, is in honour of its courtship song, a duet that both the male and female sing. This song has a clear bell-like call, consisting of a male and female singing alternate notes, producing a song that sounds like the creation of one bird. Males and females are identical.
