Ready for Shrike strike

Looking for prey, this Loggerhead Shrike (Lanius Iudovicianus) sits atop a tree where I was waiting for my wife a couple weeks ago. According to the Birds of America book, the 9 inch birds love to impail their prey.

"Impale" is such a sinister word to describe the eating habits of such a small bird...
Yes, what does it eat??
