I went on a Sunday drive west of Rexburg this afternoon. The weather continues to be beautiful. While looking at a canal for birds and other critters I noticed a mouse or vole impaled on a Russian Olive branch. Shrikes will do this after they kill prey. This allows them to eat while resting on a different branch and will also allow them to feed on it at a later time. Anyway, it may be a bit morbid, but I was fascinated and excited to make the discovery. Enjoy!
