This clever little bird impales insects on a barbed wire fence and is known as a “Butcher Bird” (Shrikes) for his unique method of catching prey.

This is cool, But it would be even cooler to see the prey the “Butcher Bird” is looking for, seems to me that it may be as big as the “Butcher Bird” itself, considering the size of the bait.

Oh in retro maybe the flies are the meal. But then the bait seems way more of a meal........ I give up...
