Well, as far as I know you have laniids, which are predatory
passeriforms, which impale their insect/small tetrapod (including
frogs, mice, and smaller passeriforms) prey on spines/broken branches
in trees. I do not know if they can survive winters with this, nor if
other birds store for long time. If you meant reptiles in its
paraphyletic sense, then I do not know...
