I hate to confess that, at this point in the year, I even enjoy starlings.

Would that be baked in a pie or broiled on a spit and served on toast points? Just the thing to nibble on while waiting for the roast swan to rest after cooking. If wild boar are a problem where you are, you might serve that instead of swan. My butcher had wild boar sausage once and he said it was the best sausage he ever ate.

Since I'm in a baking jag right now how about Four and Twenty Blackbirds (two pie mavens in Brooklyn) salted caramel apple pie? (Just riffing off your suggestion Arey!)

Now that sounds good! I could probably go for that. I love sausage...as long as there are no fennel seeds in it!
