LarderA collection of prey items impaled on thorns or barbed wire by a shrike (family Laniidae). Larders consist mainly of small birds and mammals, reptiles and invertebrates such as insects and worms; their occurrence is not confined to any particular season. Shrikes are sometimes known as 'butcher birds'.
