Very different, but IMO slightly irresponsible as the Song and Mistle Thrush are not so common these days and I’m sure someone will have a go at it!

I don`t think I`ll be trying that one, I would much prefer to listen to the thrushes song than eat one.
Don`t even like macaroni cheese - had a bad experience at school once and deposited my macaroni lunch all over my blazer and shoes.

I know the French and Portugese hunt even the tiniest birds and suspect that the majority of European countries do the same.

Isn't it being anthropomorphic to feel differently towards a thrush than a pheasant for instance?

Just a thought :rolleyes:

Don't the french serve sparrow's? I saw it on a jeremy clarkson programme. You had to eat it whole whilst being under a blanket or something..

Nothing like the romans of course.

They eat Ortolan Buntings which are related to sparrows. I believe that they net them, fatten them up and then drown them in cognac before cooking them.

Well, if you had to pick a way to go...
