The Loggerhead Shrike is a cute yet fierce bird that lives across North America from Canada down to Mexico. It is sometimes called the "Butcher Bird" because of the unique way it impales its prey - usually insects but also small rodents or even birds - on thorns or barbed wire. It does this because, although it has a hooked bill, it lacks the talons to tear the prey, so the thorn or barb acts as a tool. This is our totally cute Birdorable version of the Loggerhead Shrike!
