Shrikes spike their prey

You don’t want to be caught by this little fellow as he impales his dinner on a spike before eating it!

  1. Your posts come out just a bit too late for me to use on the same day they are posted, but I realized it doesn’t matter. The day after is good too. You have plants and everything. We mostly still have melting snow … and I’m worried that we will soon have MORE snow! I hope not. but there’s a big storm in the midwest which might consume us, too. It won’t last long at this time of year, but it can make a big mess for a week or so. I remember when we lived IN Boston, we got a 24″ snow (61 cm) on April 1st that stopped the city for a couple of days, then melted completely leaving floods everywhere. We get really crazy weather in the spring.

    Anyway, a new post tomorrow! Today, they are redoing our bathroom!

    2. Hope it continues to melt your snow and that you do not end up with any late storms. My sister in law hopes to return to Pittsburgh next week, and she can do without the snow!!

      1. Never seen one of those. Guess it is bigger than it looks in the photo. You are going to have to name your bird photos you know or I will keep on bugging you!

      2. Thought I had, was only when you asked I realised I’d failed again! And no he’s not that big, about the size of a thrush. Maybe a tiny bit bigger but not much!

      1. Butcher Birds tend to find a fork in a tree and hang their victim as well as spike. Do not search “butcher bird hanging prey” images πŸ˜›
