In Topic: Sparrow kill

Yesterday, 05:57 AM

Nice shot. The cat really scored.
I was talking to a fellow at a middle eastern deli a couple of weeks ago (I gave him slingshot a couple of years ago). He was telling me how small birds were eaten regularly when he was young. Starlings are apparently very good. I've always thought it would be fun spending a day hunting Starlings, English Sparrows and Pigeons and at the end of the day cook up whatever was in the bag.
Many years ago I used a shotgun to help a friend rid himself of a bunch of pigeons around a small dairy. What I remember most about that time was the Pigeon Pie I made using the breasts of 15 pigeons. Wonderful.

An admirer of William Shakespeare decided it would be cool to bring to what would later be known as the USA, every species of bird mentioned by the bart in his plays. Hence, we are plagued with Starlings (who are not darlings) and the like.

What is really sad, however, is that there has been, due to urbanization mostly, an incredible decline of songbirds over the last several decades. For years, ecologists have looked to birds, their distribution and their numbers, as an indicator of the health of the earth, and they are dismayed.

Question to all: When was the last time you heard a songbird?


THWACK! is back.
Today, because I'm keeping the sparrows in check on this block


I guess it's okay to kill an occasional Sparrow when one doesn't have the capacity to earn enough money to feed one's pussycat.
I hope this ain't about to get into sparrows being "songbirds" maybe in Europe and Africa where they are from, may I also mention they are carriers for West Nile virus and they show no symptoms being immune to it
