Abstract

In this note we present several previously unpublished cases of Great Grey Shrike, Lanius excubitor, predation in western Poland on adult amphibians, including poisonous toads, and a novel special behaviour — skinning toads. We briefly discuss the potential implications of these observations for understanding shrike foraging behaviour and gaps in our current knowledge on bird-toad interactions.
