The Gorgeous bushshrike (Telophorus viridis viridis), also known as Perrin's bushshrike, is a subspecies of bushshrike in the Malaconotidae family. It is found in Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Republic of the Congo, and Zambia. Its natural habitats are boreal forests, subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland. Many authorities consider this to be the nominate subspecies of the four-coloured bushshrike. Others consider both to be distinct species, in which case this species takes on the scientific name Telophorus viridis, having been distinguished first.
