If you saw a shrike and didn’t expect it’d have much of a killer instinct you’d be dead wrong. While most birds of prey that come to mind may be larger and have sharp talons, the shrike makes up for its small size and lack of claws by using its environment to essentially put its victims on pikes.

This doesn’t necessarily mean the bird will immediately eat its food either. Depending on the prey, it could leave it there for days as it builds up one seriously terrifying stockpile of food.
