Loggerhead Shrike Bird Puts Barbed Wire to Work

Regarding Clell Ballard’s article about barbed wire (Farm Collector, December 2017), where he described seeing a bumblebee impaled on a barbed wire fence: I found a description of the loggerhead shrike bird. The birds are known to kill insects and very small animals and then impale them on thorns or barbed wire for future meals and also to help to tear the catch apart.
