Starlings, I could see. They are huge flocks of birds in the Winter that can almost blacken the sky when they take wing. I can see the folks of the Middle Ages turning them into pies, easily. It would a cheap source of protein during a season when such could become scarce. 

and after watching a flock totally decimate my freshly filled suet birdfeeders in less then an hour, and the mess on the cars, driveway and other open areas...oh, yeah. I could do this. Someone else would have to do the deed, but I could scald and pluck with almost glee.

Or I will use boned and skinned chicken thighs.

To my understanding a calling bird was a starling or myna bird.

And what the heck is a Calling Bird?
I will admit that I would be tempted to prepare a roast duck with a toy
elephone tucked under a wing....
