Tabitha and Jack’s assignment is to investigate two endangered grassland species – the Loggerhead shrike and the American badger. Tabitha chooses the badger. Her investigations take her to a farm where she meets with a badger expert and the landowner whose family has been sharing their farm with badgers for many generations. Determined to get some footage for Jack’s film, she spends the night camped beside the badger den. Meanwhile Jack is not too enthusiastic about investigating what he thinks is going to be a boring little songbird. Turns out he is totally wrong. Loggerhead shrike, as he discovers, have some pretty gruesome habits.
