Butcherbird Loggerhead Shrike Heavyweight T-Shirt


About This Product

Loggerhead Shrike! This tee features the fiercest of songbirds impaling its prey on barbed wire, which encircles the two in a halo of death as forces of nature storm in the distance. (Guitar wails) Add to cart!

This tee is garment dyed and made of premium heavyweight ring-spun cotton for the ultimate vintage feel. The pigment dye of this tee will allow it to soften and age with washing - just like your favorite worn-in vintage tee. 

We commissioned illustrator Raphael Tanghal for this epic piece.  Check out more of his work at

Loggerhead Shrikes are passerines that act like raptors, hunting for insects, lizards, mammals and birds up to its size. Lacking a raptor's talons, it immobilizes prey like mice with a swift chomp to the neck with its thick, hooked bill, and then snaps the victim's neck by violently shaking its blocky head. Known as the Butcherbird for its habit of impaling prey on thorns and barbed wire, it's no wonder Audubon describes it as a "headbanging, prey-impaling death bird."

20% of profits go to Alabama Audubon's conservation work in one of America’s most biodiverse states.
