Brown Shrike – feeding technique

“Often see Brown Shrikes (Lanius cristatus) taking insect prey from the ground/grass fields. The usual method of feeding observed is holding the prey with the foot and tearing bits off. This was usually in that the prey was held by the foot and brought to the mouth. Possibly a type of stink bug (Halyomorpha sp.).”
