How do you mean that Rafed? Stewed, fried, smothered down with veggies? LOL!
Our son used to go hunt blackbirds (starlings) with his friends and they would cook and eat them. They had to have a mess of them for a good meal, but those are trash birds here and it didn't matter if anyone hunted them.
One time, Michael brought home half dozen little bird breasts (the only part that has any meat to speak of) and he happened to mention they were robins (they come down here for the winter, but don't nest here). I wanted to skin him alive for killing robins.
Now my curiosity is piqued about the aggressiveness y'all have spoken of. In NJ, if we would find a baby robin that fell from the nest too soon, we would rig up an old bird cage, or box and put the babies in there and the parents would just keep feeding it until it was old enough to fly off with them. The parents didn't care how close we were to the bird cage, or box, they'd just go on into the cage and feed the baby right in front of us.
Maybe your robins have been hanging out with the mockingbirds and catbirds and bluejays.
I found a tiny baby bird one year and it didn't have any feathers on it yet, so I decided since there were all kinds of mockingbirds hanging around the baby and they were yelling, it must be a baby mockingbird, so I tried to give it to them by rigging up a box for its safety, but the mockingbirds wouldn't go anywhere near it.
I gave up and took the baby into the house to raise it myself, which I did, but before long, the baby started to put out some real feathers and they were blue! It wasn't a mockingbird baby, it was a baby bluejay and the MBs and BJs hate each other with a passion. The mockingbirds were wanting to kill the baby jay, not protect it and it never occurred to me that if it had been a baby mockingbird, I would have been dive-bombed by the whole lot of them.
Yes, Bass, birds are edible. Are you sure they're robins? Brownish heads and backs with a rust-red breast for the male and dustier colors for the female?
Maybe NJ robins are just more gentle, or somthing because they used to make nests on our front porch and they were NEVER aggressive in any way, just sweet, gentle birds. They weren't afraid of us and they didn't care if we were on the porch talking to them or watching them.
What does your kamakaze robin pair look like?
They sound like they're acting more like mockingbirds. Now, you talk about attacks--They know now to do that.
I hope you'll relocate the nest and it will work out.
