everything from turkey buzzards to dove with no ill effects.  I cut  
their wings off and if it is a big bird I also take the feet.  I have  
even hit wild birds with my truck and had a nice supper.  Granted, I  
do not collect anything from the carcass of flying rats (pigeons) in  
the city mostly because they are so imbred they are sickly or  
deformed or both. >>>

Olwen, I'm not quite sure I understand you. You said "I cut their  
wings off and if is a big bird I also take the feet". Does that mean  
that all you eat from the bird are the wings and the feet? Or that  
you cut off the wings and the feet and then eat what is left? I  
thought the body would be where most of the meat would be.
