The southern white-crowned shrike (Eurocephalus anguitimens) is a species of bird in the Laniidae family. It is found in Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and dry savannah.
Like the closely related northern white-crowned shrike this species is highly sociable and will form small, tightly-knit groups engaged in cooperative breeding. Members of the group join in building a brooding nest, take turns in sitting on the eggs and assist in the feeding of nestlings.
