Shrikes are a species of bird present in the Territories.

Appearance and CharacteristicsEdit

Shrikes are deceptive creatures. They look like a small gray songbird, apparently harmless. In truth, they're a cunning predator. Shrike watch for prey atop high branches. When they detect movement, they swoop down and capture their prey in their claws. They then fly their victim to a nearby thorn bush, or a sharp branch, and impale him. Once impaled, the shrike can use its hooked beak to kill and eat its prey or leave him to die slowly and be eaten later.
Shrike hunt mice, snakes, frogs, lizards and insects. They can be found year-round in the Territories, but are less common in the summer as they often migrate north.
