Koenigi is not really part of Lanius meridionalis, rather belong to North Africa Lanius elegans...
According to Boyd
Your bird should be therefore called DESERT SHRIKE in English
This classification is not yet adpoted by IOC which, however, states:
Birds are disappearing because we destroy their natural habitat. By far, the main reason of this destruction is animal agriculture; thus, the first essential step for all bird lovers: becoming vegan.
