    I still like starlings more than pigeons. Starlings are beautiful birds. But yeah, they cause havoc

    IIRC, keeping a migratory bird is a violation of the "Migratory Bird Act" and as such, is a felony.

    I also agree with Johnny on his point, he's not keeping it for long enough or feeding it regularly enough that operant conditioning to take place.

    The bird was 110% better when I got home a little while ago so......with renewed vigor and a belly full of earth worms I released it into the reservation down the street from my house. I see other woodcock in this area every time I go out there so, I felt that the habitat was a suitable one for release. It took off too fast to get any pics but I'm sure that it will now be fine.
