So happy to find this lifer. The loggerhead shrike is a small song bird that behaves like a raptor. It hunts and kills its prey with its beak since it lacks a raptors talons. It can kill and carry prey as big as itself. It is famous for impaling its kills on thorns or barbed wire for easy eating. It will take toxic prey such as monarchs and impale them, then wait 3 days to eat them, giving time for the toxins to break down.
