The magpie-robins or shamas 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.
The magpie robin is the national bird of Bangladesh. It is one of the more familiar birds about towns and villages of Bangladesh and it is called Doel.
These are African and Asian garden and forest dwelling species.
