I have an old Herters cook book. It has a recipe for meadowlark and robin. One funny comment in the recipe... “I much prefer robins in the spring...”
What exactly do robins eat, and when are they fattest?
That's exactly one remove from eating bugs yourself.
Which is why they are great for garnish, snacks and special parties with royalty.
And some of the stories come down. But we got recipes.
