SHRIKE BIRDS

Although Shrikes are songbirds, they behave like birds of prey. They are often referred to as ”butcher birds” because they easily kill their pray with sharply hooked beaks, and then impale their pray on sharp thorns, to store it for later. Shrikes then return and pick at its meal over the course of several days. Average lifespan of Shrikes in the wild is between 7 to 8 years
