I had plenty of small birds and they are very boney, too much trouble to clean them, now that I am older it is much less attractive to go thru all that work.
According to our economy here in CA, I may just have to go green and get my own protein.
You're kidding, right? People do eat squirrel, especially in the South. Now here's my ignorance: I had no idea people ate birds smaller than a pigeon.
You would need a very accurate rifle shooting a .177 at moderate speeds for small birds. A .22 or a magnum .177 wouldn't leave much for dinner, IMHO.
